We were a group of 7. The meeting point was easy to find. Van was comfortable with good air conditioning which felt great on a hot day. Alvar had lots of great history to share. All stops were as advertised. Incredible views of ancient locales. We learned a lot more than if we had. visited on our own. Best surprise was the tasty stop for lunch at a place serving Catalonian food. A bargain for 15 euros! Highly recommend.

A great experience to have done during our vacation. The organization for the hot air balloon ride was perfect! Really clear to know what can be done via email and apps. And of course what was expected of us. TOP!! Nice and skilled pilot, together with the others of the crew, to make this balloon flight a special experience. Recommended!!!! Tjeerd Hummel, Holland

The organization and information in advance worked very well. The balloon ride was wonderful and could have been a little longer. The flight attendants were very friendly and helpful. Conclusion: again at any time - an impressive experience!
