    This is an amazing alternative to experience Barcelona! It was a good experience from the start with pick up service from the hotel, a glimpse of the magical sunrise, crisp morning air, breathtaking and therapeutic aerial views of outskirts Barcelona, and the yummy Catalan lunch, were all worth every penny and highly recommended! It's a 6 Stars experience!
