After pickup from the Hard Rock Cafe in Barcelona, travel by minivan for approximately half an hour, and then watch as your hot-air balloon is inflated at the launch field. Then, you're up, up and away! While floating through the air, enjoy panoramic views of the Pyrenees, Mediterranean Sea, Montserrat, the massifs of Montseny and, sometimes, even Barcelona itself. On landing, enjoy a Champagne toast and brunch as you are presented with your flight certificate.

Don't even know where to start. We left Barcelona punctually and we were taken to a city call Vic about a 40 minute drive. Once there we made a quick stop at a small café where we met the other drivers. We took a private ride strongly recommended. Our driver and his anchor were amazing cant remember their names but they both made sure we had a great time. This experience was in my bucket list and I was more than satisfied with the experience. Our tour was on Christmas eve, once we landed they surprised us with a very unique breakfast and drink. Grilled cheese sandwiches cooked with the fire from the hot air balloon right in front of you. Our driver back to Barcelona was also great cant remember her name. Overall we do not have one complain about this tour, loved it, and cant wait to do it again.
