Description

Your journey begins in Barcelona and your one-hour ride out of the fascinating yet congested city will be enjoyable. Your arrival at the magnificent Basilica of Montserrat, the entrance of the monastery, which is perhaps the most important spiritual and cultural center of Catalonia, will begin with an introduction by your local guide. There are many directions you can go once you arrive and the choices depend on your interests. Visit the Madonna, go to mass, do a little shopping, have some lunch or take the funicular to the top. As this is a private tour, your guide will accompany you on your choice if you wish. You will marvel at the impressive, one-of-a-kind basilica, where the monks worship Catalonia's patron saint--the Black Madonna of Montserrat and the patron saint of Catalonia.

You'll also be treated to the unforgettable experience of hearing the Escolania--the largest boy's choir in Europe. Though the area around the choir can get croweded, their sound rises above the masses. The views from Montserrat are as incredible as the basilica itself. There is also the option of a guided tour of the Montserrat Museum.

Enjoy some freetime and at an agreed time, you will transfer to a local restaurant for a typical Catalonian lunch, which is an additional cost.

The countryside will break some of the spell of the basilica but soon to be renewed as you visit some bodegas or wine cellars to see how Spanish cava is made. Your tasting will follow.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),
