What people are saying about Barcelona

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

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 activity. Flavio took us to some great places, explained everything very well and was enthusiastic about the tour itself. Would 100% recommend.
