This was by far one of the best things we did in Barcelona, and also a once in a lifetime experience. Some of the best views I've ever experienced, and the instant you first start floating up is something I'll never forget. Nikolas and team are absolutely world-class and at the same time great fun. And best part, afterward, they... More

Why did I wait 49 years to do this??? First question which popped into my head once we took off. Fun adventure - way too short only up for 20 minutes. Our trip was moved from a Monday to a Tuesday - nay to find out they went up Mondaywith another group and were able to stay up much longer.... More

Went on valentine's days morning and flew with Benjamin. He kept me informed of everything via email throughout the process. Picked us up right on time and we drove about 45 minutes to the launch site. We waited about 10 minutes for the balloon to fill up, then we were on our way. Once we got up in the air,... More

Our daughters treated us to this trip as a present for our 40th wedding anniversary as it has been something I have wanted to do for ages and what a wonderful present it was. Right from the word go we were made welcome and the service was fantastic. The ride over the Pyrenees was sensational and really quite emotional. Breath-taking... More

If you are going to do ballooning, drifting over Catalonia on a beautiful, clear winter's morning with Benjamin and company is the way to go! Highly recommended!

Our tour agent booked this hot air balloon excursion as our last hoorah for our extended Portugal/Spain adventure. Josep picked us (3 women) up at apartment around 6:00 a.m. for the long drive out to the country. We stopped along the way to meet our other passengers, meet our pilot, and connect with the balloon. Another little drive out to... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
