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!

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

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.
