The weather failed and the flight was postponed and it was simply reported to Mail, we do not read the mail on vacation and came in vain .... The next day I had to go again to fly. Well, a yacht in the rain of 15 degrees is also somehow not very

Amazing experiences!

The helicopter ride was short but incredible. A much smaller helicopter than we'd both been in before. Was great to see Barcelona from the air and the flight itself was terrific. Would have been nice to fly over the city, perhaps do a lap around it. But travelling along the coast was fantastic. The aircraft takes 3 passengers, so I feel sorry for those who get split apart, but we were lucky enough to go together. The cruise was fantastic also, but I think mostly because we were lucky enough to be the only two passengers. A private cruise! The captain was incredible and great to chat to along the journey. We talked about his background, life in Barcelona, sailing experiences and more. A really relaxing afternoon. Our only issue with this experience was not realising that the two activities were so far apart. Booking for 14:30, we assumed that the helicopter would be at 14:30 and the cruise straight after. Very thankful that we had not booked anything earlier in the day.

It was really amazing! Very well organised. Friendly stuff.

Everything was better than we expected. We booked this group (max 10 people) offer for 3 people, and in the end we had totally private boat ride (we were 6 people together and you divided us on two boats, so we had out private boat for 3 of us) - the captain was perfect- funny, friendly and professional. The heli ride was also very nice! Everything was well organised, communication very fast and easy Thank you very much!
