What people are saying about Barceloneta Beach

Overall rating

4.7 / 5

based on 855 reviews

Excellent directions to meeting point - photos made it super clear where to meet. Jorge was super nice and explained everything very well (safety, rules, landmarks) and also pointed out some convenient restrooms before we set out. Great way to start our trip in Barcelona

I was worried that we'll spend not much time actually kayaking but in the end it was around 3 hrs which was enough. The via ferrata nearby is also great and relatively easy. I'd recommend doing it too

Leo was very friendly and patience with us as we got to grips with the Segways. The experience of seeing Barcelona via Segway was something that has to be done! Cannot recommend these guys enough.

Jorge is an outstanding captain. He was very accommodating and explained the sites. We had a nice relaxing afternoon. Thank you Jorge.

Flo was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and warm. Great way to see the city and get a background to Barcelona.
