This was great fun! The captain was excellent. We are boat loving people and enjoyed cruising out of the old port and viewing Barcelona from the sea. There were only 7 people on the boat besides the captain and 1st mate. I highly recommend this tour!
The "tour" was great. Our skipper was a nice guy from the UK who was very knowledgeable and funny. We were out on the Mediterranean a full two hours. Only problem was while we were driven to the start location by the tour company, we were NOT picked up afterwards. This is the first time ever that we weren't taken and returned. While it worked out ok because we had a general idea where we were and how to get back, we would have been EXTREMELY upset had it been a rainy day or had kids in tow or somewhere else to be under a time pressure. This little fact (no return to office) should be made crystal clear on the Viator website.
On May 9, 2014, my family took a sailboat ride from Barcelona on the Mediterranean Sea. It was very relaxing and our guide was fantastic. He allowed my family members steer the boat while I sat on deck feeling the cool breeze under a warming sun. Nobody was sea-sick and my nephew took a dip in the 16 degree C water. Highly recommend this for a family of all ages
It ended up being just us and the captain, who was very friendly, english speaking, and professional. They even provided a round of beers and snacks for us. I would highly recommend the trip.
Explore Catalunya is probably one of the best tour companies I have ever been on in all my travels to about 25+ countries now. They truly have great service, awesome tour guides, friendly atmosphere, and they are also extremely accommodating. I booked about 6 tours with them in Barcelona and loved every one of them, thank you!!
Skipper was great, views were lovely, a wonderful time was had by all!
we had a great time! The planned sailboat had problems but they quickly found another and we loved it!
Great trip - well worth the money. It was good fun and had to get involved doing bits on the boat. It was us and one other couple, plus the captain. A good fun way to see Barcelona from the sea!
We had a wonderful time and the experience was better than expected! We arrived early and they didn't make us wait and drove us by car to the port. We had some drinks and snacks and enjoyed about a 2 hour sailing trip. My daughter go to "steer" the boat and we had a wonderful swim in the sea. The captain, Roger, was super nice and we had a great time with him. We would recommend this tour to everyone visiting Barcelona!
Fantastic ... The best tour in Barcelona especially in the summer..
I loved the Trip! Perfect to see a other side from
Barcelona and relaxe a little bite! :)
The sailor that AWESOME! Funny, personable, engaged....a true pleasure to have on the boat with us! He was from England and I can't remember his name! Please send my regards! :-)
Had a fascinating sail in the Med. The captain and mate were very hospitable and friendly. My grandson even had the chance to take a swim....even though he was back out as fast as he went in as the Med is on the chilly side even in June. Definitely recommend this over the larger type cruises out of the port of Barcelona.... Joan VZ
