What people are saying about Barcelona

What a blast we had going “up, up and away in our beautiful balloon”. The gorgeous sights and awesome thrill from on high (above the town of Vic) were surpassed only by the friendliness and skill of the crew. Even the town cheered our presence as school kids waved and jumped for joy at us. The ride was schedule for 60 minutes however the crew extended our thrill to make up for time traversing the unexpected low wind bands, which was a thrill as well. We were even given the opportunity to prepare the balloon for lift and dismantle it for transport after landing. We highly (pun intended) recommend this experience for everyone… families, couples, and groups. It was simply amazing. Book this trip . Your English guide Max is the most amazing young man , very kind , polite and knowledgeable . The balloonist Angel , very respectful and skillful, has owned and operated his hot air balloon business for over two decades , he knows his land by heart . You will not be disappointed. Book it!

The Globublog team, Angel, Salvador and Max were excellent throughout the trip. If you don't speak Spanish or Catalan you don't need to worry as Max's English was excellent. He was happy to provide advice about the Balloon trip and other things to do in Barcelona. The balloon ride was well organised and we felt safe at all times. Angel is an excellent pilot. The views across the snow capped peaks of the Pyrennes was amazing a really special way to start our trip in Barcelona. Angel and Salvador were so helpful during the trip and afterwards as well. When we finished our balloon trip we were running late for the Barcelona game at Camp Nou. Instead of dropping us back to our apartment they went out of their way to take us to the stadium to make sure that we were there on time for the game. Nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant for breakfast and lunch was terrific and the food very good. The Globublog team offered a really personal experience - highly recommended

We really enjoyed our hot air balloon experience! Our translator was Max and Angel acted as our driver and hot air balloon operator. We were picked up at our residence in Barcelona and driven to the site of the balloon launch. Amazing experience all around. Angel even took photos of us and we received them a few days later. Breakfast is after the hot air balloon ride so make sure to eat something before the start of the excursion. I would recommend this for sure if you're looking for a unique travel experience.

What a great trip, the scenery was beautiful and the hosts were very kind and fun. The breakfast after the ride was delicious also. We would highly recommend this activity.

AMAZING experience!!! A must do when going to Barcelona!!
