What people are saying about Barcelona

We were very satisfied with this experience from start to finish, ending with a good breakfast which turned out to be a lunch of many local specialties, thanks to the organizers in particular Maria a sweet and very dynamic woman

Everything was great, but unfortunately our helicopter flight could not take place because the king was in Barcelona and this was forbidden. But the organizers couldn't do anything about that.

On land, in the air, on water. So I was able to get an idea of Barcelona from different perspectives in a short time. It's a great option - not cheap, but very rewarding - and recommended.

CRAZY experience in Barcelona city, I've been living in Barcelona for around 2 years and there is no experience similar to this one.

Ángel was an amazing balloon guide and our driver Mari was also amazing. Thank you for this experience!
