Prepare for an exhilarating flight as you take off and begin to enjoy the sense of freedom and tranquility of floating through the air, you'll be airborne between 1 and 1.5 hours before landing for a sumptuous Champagne brunch.

Was great! The van showed up outside of the Hard Rock Cafe at just about 7, so don't worry if the van's not there when you arrive! Everyone was great and we had the best time.

We loved our hot air balloon ride. The driver, pilot and assistant were all so courteous and informative. The company did everything to make our experience exceed out expectations. We highly recommend this become part of any Barcelona tourist’s itinerary. Locals would enjoy the flight as well, of course.

This trip was everything I hoped it would be and more! Serenely floating over a beautiful Spanish town and then over the countryside with views of the snow topped Pyrenees in the distance! Ending with a glass or 2 of Cava, it was a magical experience that I would definitely recommend! Thank you Tomas and Vic!!
