What people are saying about Catalonia, Spain

Our guide was Martina and she was really nice and knowledgable. She showed us few of Gaudi houses, walked us through Barcelona and then brough us to helipad. Helicopter ride is absolutely amazing experience and it is really not a problem even if you're afraid of hights. Martin was there to send us all of. Boat trip was done on our own and you can use it next day. Absolultely recommend this!

Good experience with great views, but if your take-off spot is near, Andorra will be prepared to be in very chilly weather for up to 4 hours. the tour operator was kind to offer us jackets to stay warm, and they were very helpful throughout the tour. If you are going for the first time, it will be an excellent experience.

A simply brilliant discovery! For a weekend of presence it is a format super well suited: very beautiful historical discovery made by a young guide very interesting and very benevolent! Then boat and helicopter: exceptional! In short, to do!
