What people are saying about Columbus Monument

I had the absolute best time on my tour today! Highlight of my trip. Our tour guide who unfortunately I can’t remember how to spell his name but it began with M! Was so lovely and knowledgeable and was happy to answer any questions from the group. I 100% would recommend this tour to anyone it was great and I got some amazing pictures!

Everything was great, but unfortunately our helicopter flight could not take place because the king was in Barcelona and this was forbidden. But the organizers couldn't do anything about that.

On land, in the air, on water. So I was able to get an idea of Barcelona from different perspectives in a short time. It's a great option - not cheap, but very rewarding - and recommended.

Everything was perfect apart from the weather (Sea mist) stopped the helicopter flight.

The guide is perfect, and the activity exceptional, very good day spent
