What people are saying about Costa Brava

Such a fun trip! My husband and I are on our honeymoon and this was a really exciting activity! Santi, Tommy, and Charlie made the experience feel safe and fun and they created a relaxed atmosphere which helped calm the initial nerves. The views were incredible! The cava toast afterwards was a perfect way to end it. You will have to wake up early but it’s so worth it! Unforgettable experience and amazing, happy staff!

Wow, if I could give this 10 stars I would! What an experience! It was my first time in a hot air balloon and it’s going to be hard to beat! Nicholas and his team were wonderful and very knowledgable about balloons, etc. I hope I am lucky enough to take another trip with him!

Great, friendly guide, made sure we were all having a good time. Picked a nice restaurant by the sea for lunch with a mostly seafood menu but alternates were available for vegetarians. At the end there was free time to walk around the old town, shop or stay on the beach
