What people are saying about Barcelona

I haven’t been horseback riding in decades and it was a blast. The views for Montserrat were absolutely gorgeous and it was fun to walk around and see what it was. I thought it was well worth driving out into the mountains

Exceptional prin diversitatea de specii si modului de organizare. Recomand cu mare drag, in special familiilor cu copii.

The children were very excited to see all the different animals! We loved it and had a great time.

It was an amazing experience. It felt like you have an ocean underneath your feet.

Great! Speed and efficiency for the cut-off ticket. Good for a 1st aquarium
