We had a wonderful day hiking with our guide, Fermi, in Montserrat. The views from the various mountain peaks were breathtaking! Our early arrival at the basilica allowed us the privacy to view the black Madonna without crowds. Fermi was very knowledgable, helpful, and fun. He brought us to places on our hike through the mountains that we never would have seen without him. The lunch was perfect-it hit the spot for all of our hungry hikers. I would highly recommend this trip to any family or small group. It was truly one of the most memorable days of our trip! Thank you Fermi!
Our hiking trip with Fermi was AMAZING! He was very nice and quite funny. He knew absolutely everything about the area, it was incredible. Half the time I have no idea how he knew where the trails were as we were since the terrain was so unique. We did the full day hike, which ended up being only us. I highly recommend it - you get to see the best sites this way (not just the touristy stuff)! There are some parts that are a bit scary if you don't like heights/have a fear of falling, but the guide makes you feel very comfortable and makes sure you're ok. Lunch was a nice picnic at one of the shrines (breathtaking views and no tourists!); they accommodated my vegetarian needs which was so thoughtful. I would give them 10 starts if I could!

We went on the historical Monserrat and guided hike with Trescant the other day, and it was absolutely fantastic. Trescant was so knowledgeable, friendly and a brilliant guide. We arrived at Montserrat before the crowds and were able to have the monastery and black madonna practically to ourselves, before heading up to peaks for the hike, which was the highlight of the day! Trescant knew so much about the landscape and wildlife, and we were able to come across wild mountain goats. We also visited many shrines, great spots for panoramic views and were given opportunities to choose routes / peaks to climb based on how we felt, so ended up climbing to the top of the Elephant with Trescant's help and expertise. We also stopped off at the local cheese market on the way back which was very tasty. Thanks so much for such a great day Trescant, and I would definitely recommend your tours to everyone. We hope to come back in the future and arrange a different hike with you.
Our excursion to Monserrat with Fermi as our guide was an experience of a lifetime. The early arrival allowed us a very relaxed tour of the Monastery and a personal hike seeing few other hikers. The views were stunning and Fermi was patient with us and allowed us to take out time and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. We are very grateful for such a wonderful experience, thanks to Fermi!!!
We took the hiking your of Montserrat late March and had an amazing day. Our guide Fermi did an awesome job guiding us through the monastery first and then a challenging hike in the mountains. The scenery and hike were excellent, and we were able to visit areas that most tourists would never get to see. They took care of everything (lunch, water, snack) and dropped us at our hotel in Barcelona after the hike was finished (which was great because we were exhausted). We had an awesome day - one of the highlights of our two week visit to Spain. Would highly recommend.
