Overview
Forget about time-consuming and confusing public transit and benefit from the convenience of an air-conditioned, round-trip excursion to Montserrat instead. Learn more from your local guide than you could alone, stop by the Royal Basilica of Montserrat, and then enjoy free time to explore. This half-day trip is ideal for those with limited time in the region.
