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.
we had a great time. Small group ( 4 + captain) and we all had an opportunity at the helm!
Peaceful and exciting!
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!
Great experience. Once in a life time, the guide was friendly and knew a lot about the local area. Would recommend.
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!
LOTS of FUN - but be ready to get wet + have a rocking + rolling time!
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!!!
I really enjoyed being out on the sea, it was an amazing experience! We were able to see the shore and see the main highlights of Barcelona coastline, which looked great from the sea. It was only four of us plus the skipper on the boat, which was great as we could enjoy the peace and quiet of the sea, and gave me an incredible feeling of freedom, just what I needed! The skipper was really nice and showed us the basics of sailing as well, and we could all try steering the boat and tried our sailor's skills! I am already looking forward to go sailing again on my next trip.
A very pleasant and enjoyable cruise. The captain allowed us to get involved in raising the sails and directing the vessel. Excellent views of Barcelona from the sea and time well spent.
This was a great, unique experience in Barcelona that I will never forget. I would suggest that this tour is better for people with a little bit of sailing experience, as our group of novices was definitely not prepared for the adventure we had on this tour. Our guide was great though, patient and enjoyable to talk to. He taught us the ropes, and showed us some sights while we sailed around the harbor (the open water was too choppy and windy!). I'd definitely suggest if you're interested or know sailing, and want to see Barcelona from a very different way!
this was a very fun experience that was a great thing to do in Barcelona that no one would have thought of. i was a little worried about booking through Viator overseas but had no problems with the reservation at all. my husband and i booked to go on a sunset cruise but it was overcast and rainy the day we booked so the wife of the tour company met us to reschedule us for the next day. she was so sweet and nice! we went the next day with 4 other girls and were not quite prepared for the weather that ensued. the morning started off very pretty but the wind picked up and it was strong! i wish the waters and wind was calmer for more of a relaxing and calm sail but the tour company can't be blamed for that. as it was a windy day and no one in the boat had any experience sailing except for the tour guide...the girls (including myselft) seemed a little nervous being out at sea with the boat swaying from one side to the other. since we had never sailed before...i don't think any of us knew what to expect. we ended up going out to sea very fast and coming back quickly into the harbor to practice sailing and learn how to do it ourselves. in retro spect...we should have done that 1st then tried to go out to sea but i don't think the guide realized how strong the winds were and how little we knew of sailing. the last hour we puttered around the bay and were treated to a bottle of suprise cava for my husbands birthday and Barcelona yacht t-shirt which was so sweet of the company to do! our guide was very knowledgeable of the city and sailing. this was definitly an adventure trip if you want to learn 1st hand how to sail. don't sign up for this if you are expecting a stable booz cruise experience. I give 1 star to the weather and 4 stars to the company!
Beautiful experience however our guide did not have very good English skills which made communication a bit difficult. Especially in a small group where u want that conversation to flow.
