Reviews & Ratings

  1. It was great. Thanks
  2. Very good, fab trip, and also get the helicopter experience. a real must.
  3. Excellent staff ,service and the best 12 minutes we spent in Barcelona . Need to get a taxi out to the heliport as it is situated, at the end of the cruise dock bridge ( not a bridge to be walking over )
  4. Excellent trip, first time for my son in a helicopter! He is now a convert. Thanks for a brilliant experience as always I enjoyed the ride. Phillip C
  5. It was our first helicopter ride so the experience was amazing and the views were absolutely beautiful. We had no recorded commentary during the flight though and the pilot didn't provide any explanation either, so we passed right over Sagrada Familia and didn't even see it. I have no complaints about Viator, they were great, but CatHelicopters... They tried to reschedule us for the next day, because of a "mechanical problem" to the helicopter (even though I had explained when I made the appointment that we were gonna be in Barcelona for a single day, coming on a cruise ship). From the cruise ship we could see the helicopter flying back and forth, so imagine our surprise... and then they called us to reschedule for later in the afternoon. In the end, we were just glad we got to experience flying in a helicopter.
