This was a very fun and well organised balloon ride. It was quite a hands-on experience, as well all had our photos taken while doing things like rolling out the balloon, which kept things interesting before the ride. The ride itself was over very beautiful countryside, with the cava (or fruit juice for children) and chocolates above the clouds being a very nice touch. After the ride, we had a hearty Catalan breakfast with Oscar, Nuria and their teenage son, as well as the other people on the balloon ride. The breakfast was big, somewhat like a Catalan version of a full English breakfast, but with even more items. Oscar and Nuria were so well organised that they had prepared a video of our balloon ride for viewing by the end of our brunch and presented us with a copy. My one word of advice would be to book this for the beginning of your trip to the area, since the balloon can only go up if the weather conditions are right. The flight time was about an hour and a half, but getting out to the launch site, setting things up and getting back to the breakfast restaurant meant that ride took up about four hours all total. Thoroughly recommended.

This is a totally recommendable experience. The more than experienced Nuria and Oscar will make the most out of this trip by accompanying you while you discover the fantastic landscapes of the Empordà region during one hour and a half as you can not see them anyhow else. A refreshment in the heights will be the icing on the cake for a delicious trip!

Excellent attraction for everybody.
We flied for almost 2 hours with Oscar who sin excellent pilot and we had the chance to see the whole Catalonia from high above. We went 800 meters up and there our pilot Oscar offered us chilled Champagne and chocolates. That was really something! Drinking Champagne at this height while enjoying a lifetime view.
The Airona company is actually a family business and maybe this is their success secret.
At the and of the flight they drove us to a wonderful local tavern where we had the best breakfast of our lives.
Excellent experience executed from very serious professionals.
Thank you Oscar and Nuria. We will come back definitely.

We booked the balloon flight with Airona, who represented by three wonderful guys, Oscar, Nuria, and Daniel. As a professional of the tourism, in my country, my judgments are always strictly.
We were a family of six, with three kids 18, 17, and 10 years plus a granny. The flight was incredible. We all took part in all preparations of the balloon and after an hour we made it to be up in the air. It is an experience of a life time and worth every penny. The view can't be described. If i can say something is: "The balloon flight is the sailing of the air" . Hit of the flight was the Champagne, served in 800 meters. Oscar is an experienced pilot and drives the balloon with care to the passengers and great attention to the safety rules. Nuria is a polite lady, available to answer any query you may have. Daniel was always smiling, and working hard. He was driving all the time after the balloon, giving directions and extra help to Oscar.
Extra happening is the unbelievable breakfast, right after the flight. Oscar and Daniel drove us in a local tavern where, we were served the traditional Catalan breakfast. Spanish cold cuts fresh baked bread, sausages, tomatoes and sweet wine. I think it was my best breakfast the last years. We all were so hungry and excited after the flight, and it is "something" to have sweet wine for breakfast.
As a family, we all thank you Oscar, Nuria, and Daniel. I will recommend, your one of a kind excursion, to anyone coming to Spain and i hope to have the opportunity to welcome you in my island, Santorini. Thank you !!!!
