Wow, there are not words for how incredible this place is. This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen in my entire life, it felt surreal. It was a bit of an overcast day, and really cold. (Which was strange for barcelona in April) but they filled them up and we jumped in and immediately it felt a bit warmer due to the hot air, and being so close to the fire. Then when we went up, we went right through the clouds!! It was amazing! When you are on an airplane and you first go through the clouds you think it's going to be so cool and it's not, in a hot air balloon it freaking is!!! We went right through and then all of the sudden we were above and the sun was shining and we were right above all of these clouds! It was the coolest thing in my life. It felt like a movie. Also Max and the other guides were amazing. They took us to this very delicious local place for lunch. We got to have some real authentic barcelona food, and dang was it good. You need to do this if you can!!!

Had an absolutely fantastic experience from beginning to end. The hosts messaged us the day before confirming the pick up time from our hotel and were punctual. The vehicle was a comfortable minibus and although (because of the bank holiday) we couldn’t eat/have coffee in the usual place, the hosts ensured we were able to get a coffee and something to eat before the balloon ride at a petrol garage. The balloon ride itself was superb, we had a beautiful sunny morning for our ascent and the ride was smooth with the pilot even landing us on a dirt road so we didn’t need to walk through a field. All in all we felt very looked after and the photos taken of us were fantastic and sent to us via Google Photos. 10/10 and cannot fault the experience, definitely recommend - thanks guys!

Awesome experience! Very thoughtful of them to pick us up at the nearest hotel to me as our hotel doesn’t has any pickup point. Had breakfast at a cafe before the activity (highly recommended the hot chocolate). Was able to see the whole process - setting up the hot air balloon and deflating it! View from hot air balloon was great, get to see many greeneries and farms. Will definitely recommend this to my friends!!

It was fantastic…. Our gide contacted us 3 days before that the weather is going to be bad and offered us to start 2 days earlier. Everything went perfectly - pick up, balloon flight, breakfast and return transport…. Absolutely recommended

Absolutely fantastic.! Well organized and friendly crew.! 6 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
