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

I don't remember drivers name but super nice guy and he arrived to pick us up right on time. We drove about 40 minutes to small restaurant to get a bite and use facilities prior to heading to launch site. They stop here first to determine what launch site will be used depending on weather. We helped get balloon ready... More

Tomas, the driver, picked me at the exact time it was scheduled. He was very nice and even gave me hints on my visit to Barcelona. We stopped to have something to eat and to go to the bathroom (there are no facilities where you take the balloon). The group was able to help mounting and dismounting the balloon. We... More

Just a quick note to thank you very much for today's experience. Tomas and Josep were both very nice and treated our boys especially well and were very funny. The sight when we popped up through the cloud cover into the sunshine to see mountain peaks all around us was nothing short of spectacular. All of us had a wonderful... More

What an incredible experience! Once in a lifetime! The booking process and payment was so easy and smooth. Benjamin was great at answering all my questions and I felt very comfortable booking the private flight. We opted for a pick up direct from our hotel lobby - Joseph was very humorous and made the drive enjoyable for us both! We... More

The booking and payment was smooth. Benjamin answered all my questions and I felt very comfortable booking the package. Nicholas picked us up at Las Ramblas at 6:15am. Then we picked up another group and drove about an hour to our destination. There are no facilities at the destination so if you need to use the bathroom you need to... More

We came into Barcelona wanting a little adventure and to see more of the countryside of Barcelona. Ballooning Barcelona was the perfect choice. We had a private balloon with our family of 8. Tomas was our pilot and he expertly took us up and down over several hills, homes and mountains. We were surprised by the fact that when you... More

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!
