I highly recommend this trip. I booked it for my husbands 50th and it was perfect. The skipper Jorge is such a lovely guy. Contacted me the evening before to give me meeting point instructions. Very laid back relaxing experience. You won’t be disappointed if you book this trip.

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.

Was a very nice 2 hour sailboat ride with a great view of the entire Barcelona coast. Jorge was a great skipper and would recommend this to everyone!

Fabulous experience, Jorge was such a great hose, enjoyed every minute, will definitley book again next time we visit Barcelona

Hospitable and clear instruction about meeting point. Really recommended
