This was a beautiful 3 hours along the coast of Barcelona. They were so accommodating to help get my elderly father into the sail boat, worked perfectly! The weather was beautiful and we loved the views.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

That tour was great. However, in your important remarks it said to wear white sole shoes and no sandals. So we went to buy shoes for the sailing tour. We realized on the boat that it was not necessary and Americans with us wore black shoes and sandals! Otherwise, everything was perfect.

We had so much fun! This is a very hands on sail, with plenty of opportunity to "man the helm". My Dad, a seasoned sailor, was in seventh heaven. The views of Barcelona were awesome. After ending the sail we ate the most delicious baby calamari at one of the waterside resteraunts at the marina.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

we had a great time. Small group ( 4 + captain) and we all had an opportunity at the helm!
Peaceful and exciting!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

The sailing trip was great! 3 hours in a boat with a professional sailing team, wind and sun, beautiful city views, sea and a friendly captain! He tried to keep us involved in the process, so we enjoyed the trip a lot.
However, I would not recommend the sailing trip to those who have seasickness.

My friend and I went on this sailing trip to do something different, and we had an amazing time! The sea was calm so we got to sail quite far, which gave us a great opportunity to admire the Barcelona skyline from the sea. We both got to hoist the sails which was great fun. On the way back the sun was just setting and we got the most amazing sunset over the sea! We will definitely do it again!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012

Great experience. Once in a life time, the guide was friendly and knew a lot about the local area. Would recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2012

This was wonderful experience. Neat to see Barcelona from the water. The staff-member who met us at the Yacht Club was very friendly. They ended up offering a bigger sailboat to us at no extra charge, which was nice. Although they told us that skipper didn't speak English--that was okay with us. We figured it out well enough. He had our teenage boys helping to steer and help with the sails. I was a little nervous booking through Viator and hoping the service provider in Spain would work out--but it went off without a hitch and everyone was well-aware of our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2012

LOTS of FUN - but be ready to get wet + have a rocking + rolling time!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2012

I had an amazing time with this 8 meters boat and with ONLY 4 people on it, our skipper was very good and very expert; I would like to repeat it as soon as possible because this tour allows you to see Barcelona from another point of view, so far from the city noise and so magic. We saw the sunset and the experience was awesome (by the way, next time I will try the romantic tour...). It helps to make your trip an unique experience in Barcelona!!! Thanks a lot!!!
