First time for this adventure. We didn't know what to expect, but it surpassed our expectations. Personnel was friendly and attentive, always looking for our enjoyment. The Monserrat tour afterwards felt rushed, but great guide overall.

The tour is everything that all of the other reviews say it is. The experience was incredible, the balloon ride was very smooth and the views at sunrise can't be beat. Our group only consisted of 7 people so that was very manageable. We were given a little snack and juice which was a nice touch and helped to roll up the balloon afterwards which was cool and then finished that portion of the trip off with a champagne toast. The monastery was also great with spectacular views and the cable car ride was fun. There was a little outdoor market area as well and a very large store for shopping which you are given a short time to browse which we enjoyed. Ok, the reason for taking away one star was because on the day of the trip we met at the time and location according to our voucher and found ourselves in a dark alley and the company closed. We called and got a recording stating the business did not open for another two hours but to either call the after hours number or send an email. We did both and got a VM and did not get an email response so we panicked thinking we missed our trip due to an error on our part and was out 20 euro for cab rides both ways to our hotel (not too mention getting out of bed at 5:45AM that morning). When I called shortly after the office opened that day I had learned that the trip had been cancelled but no one contacted me and they were booked for the following day already so we made the decision to ride with them two days later at the cost of spending over 200 euro in change fees to move our flights because that was our last day in Barcelona so we were not happy about the lack of communication for sure about this situation. That aside, this excursion was the highlight of our trip and the guide and all supporting staff was excellent and knowledgeable.
