Had a flawless trip - from pick-up at our apartment, to the launch site, to the yummy grilled cheese sandwiches afterward - it was a perfect ending to our trip to Spain/Barcelona. Highly recommend!

I was very nervous before doing this but so glad I followed thru with it!!! We had a wonderful balloon ride with Benjamin & Tomas. They were both friendly & professional. Tomas put my mind at ease the moment we slowly took off and floated along smoothly!!. He would bring the balloon up and down so controlled. The views are... More

Josef and Tomas were excellent hosts, driver, pilot, cook and server. The flight was fantastic and the experience was unforgettable. A wonderful birthday for my wife.

This was one of the highlights of our trip! Benjamin and Josep were extremely friendly, helpful and professional. The views are stunning and well worth the early morning wake-up. I felt the price was well worth the adventure and I would highly recommend this experience!!

We had a wonderful time doing a private balloon ride. Benjamin was a true professional and a great pleasure to work with. His price was more than fair and the communication was excellent. I looked at several other places, and he was by far the best pricewise as well as range of services. I really endorse the private ride--such a... More

It was the perfect ending to our week long stay. Prompt pick-up, friendly staff and wonderful views. That we were able to not just ride the balloon but also participate in the launch and post landing activities was a bonus.

We booked ballooning with this company based on the great reviews, and unfortunately didn't end up going, thanks to Mother Nature! The team did everything possible to make it happen, but put our safety first. Communication with these folks was awesome at all times. We're obviously disappointed that we didn't get to experience it this time around, but we'll be... More

As a last day to our European vacation, we took this tour and couldn't have had a better time! We had to postpone a day to due some strong winds the day before, but were able to get a ride up the next morning and even as the wind picked up upon our return approach, the pilot was great and... More

This was our first time in Barcelona and we wanted to do something different and unique. We definitely made the right choice. This trip was SO worth it! The company was extremely professional from our very first e-mail inquiry. Benjamin responded in a timely manner to all of our questions and provided outstanding customer service. On the trip day, we... More

Given the great reviews about this company on tripadvisor, I had a lot of very high expectations for this trip and, i have to say, every single one of them were met (and even exceeded at some points). Every aspect of the trip from communication with our pilot Benjamin (before, during and after the trip), transport to and from the... More
