These people don't play! If they tell you to BE at the meeting point at 6am, you better be there or look like getting left! LOL! Nobody in our group got left, they were prompt in picking us up at the meeting point which I liked and the van to and from was air conditioned and comfortable. They stopped for coffee and croissant since it was so early and were timely at getting us to the hot air ballon destination. I was nervous and the guide reassured me all would be well. They took plenty of pictures at our request and the balloon operator was taking pictures for and of us as well when we asked. I loved the smooth landing and scenic views from the top. We had grilled cheese from the hot air on the balloon and it was the BEST grill cheese sandwich I've ever had in my life! I forgot what kind of cheese they used! Never had it before. We also had wine I had abut 4 cups LOL! and it was a memory of a lifetime! If you don't do ANYTHING else, YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TOUR! IT IS A MUST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was absolutely fantastic. The experience of a lifetime. The company is a small business and provides personalized service. It attracts an interesting group of people. We met a couple who have become great friends. We met people from Australia and Canada as well.
I was really nervous. I had never done anything like this before. our original site for take off was too windy so we had to go another 30 minutes to another site. my daughter was extremely nervous and spent the majority of the time sitting in the basket. for me and my husband, it was fantastic. it was so majestic. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Everything we wanted and more! Amazings views, an experience of a lifetime.

We had enough people for two balloons which made it much more fun. We floated casually over the beautiful farming area of Catalonia, Spain. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful experience. The staff was outstanding. Our day ended with grilled Iberian ham and cheese sandwiches grilled by the balloon propane burners and accompanied with Cava.
Better than I expected to be honest. We went up in between the clouds and it was a lovely view. I would highly recommend this tour for any age groups. We had a nice little snack after the trip which was also nice.
We loved this! It was the highlight of our trip. There was great customer servoce. Most of all it was the perfect length of time and we got to see some awesome scenery. This is a must do.
What an experience!! Will be doing the more adventurous mountain flight next time. But for first time experience it was just right. Very nice lunch at a local restaurant you would never have found if you weren't in this tour. Nicolas and Jordi were great hosts and put us at ease. Excellent tour.
The two men that run this trip are awesome! It was amazing and we would do it again and again! Thank you for helping to make our honeymoon great!
Nicolas and Thomas were absolutely excellent hosts and operators of this tour. We would thoroughly recommend this trip it is an early start but well worth it and leave you breathless. The wind took us into the industrial area on landing but we landed safely and expertly by Thomas it actually was so much fun and excitement. Well done. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and it was great,.
This was a highlight of our short stay in Barcelona, we were picked up on time at the meeting point and were driven out into the countryside, it was a little foggy where we were originally going to take off from so we drove to a town called Vic. This was our first time in a hot air balloon so it was a little concerning taking off however soon we were overwhelmed by the peace and serenity of floating in the air in a basket. We got some great photos of the town and sounding mountains and the landing was just as smooth as the take off. I thought it humorous that our breakfast of toasted sandwiches were toasted by using the burners of the hot air balloon - very rustic!
Fantastic staff and great way to view the countryside. Loved the special snack at the end of the ride. Highly recommended.
I really couldn't think of a better tour than this! Everything was amazing from the friendly and knowledgeable staff and pilot to the magnificent scenery of this beautiful country. This was our first balloon trip and it was better than I expected- and I had high expectations! A MUST when you visit.
Fanastic experience made even better by the friendlyness of the staff of Ballooning.es
Excellent experience, the staff were wonderful, view was fantastic.
This is one item if one has the time I highly recommend you partake. This was an excellent event, it is just unreal if one has never taken a hot air balloon ride. I recommend you not pass up this opportunity. The staff are excellent and very professional. I would do it again if I ever get back to Barcelona. Book the longest flight they offer. Howard and Pam
It, was excellent and exceeds our expectative. Pilot and assistant were very knowledgeable. They also provide breakfast for all the guests.
Surprised my husband for his birthday with this trip. Understand that you may need to flex with start time to beat the wind... We were out at 5:30 AM but it was worth it to see the sun rise over the mountains ... Beautiful country.
Awesome! Outstanding! From the moment the team picked us up until returned, every aspect of this trip was worth it! Fun, fun, fun with spectacular views. You are floating, not flying and view a totally different perspective; as different as driving by a forest in a car versus a bicycle.
Fantastic experience. We got started a little late because weather conditions at the planned launch location weren't favorable and we had to drive to another spot. One of our party was nervous-this was a first for all of us-but the calm and expertise of our pilot (French national champion!) changed our feelings immediately. The views, the peacefulness, floating within waving distance of pedestrians in an picturesque country town, hearing church bells (Sunday morning)-all really magical and would do it again in a heart beat. Highly recommended.
