We had a fantastic time, arrived at airport in Barcelona just in time to see Real Madrid arrive. Had great time with fans there and it was a good start to match day. Everything went really smoothly from arrival to departure - and we were delighted with result- esp Ronaldo scoring. Seats at Nou Camp were quite far away from pitch but we were near away fans which was fun. Hotel was basic for a 4 star but staff were helpful and it was very convenient. We will definitely do this again- maybe El Clasico in Madrid next season!
We felt that the whole package was superb and great value for money. We were lucky enough to spend 4 days in Barcelona so we managed to do a bit of sightseeing as well as attending the Camp Nou. Barcelona is a stunning city with so much to do and the fact that it is home to possibly the best club team ever made it an even more enjoyable visit. We were lucky enough to attend the Camp Nou whilst Pep Guardiola was still in charge and the fact that Valdes, Puyol, Xavi, Iniesta and Messi all played made it that bit more special. I would thoroughly recommend Footballbreak to anyone interested in this type of trip as the service we received was superb; we're already looking forward to our next trip!
I booked a Football break package for my boys (15 and 12 years of age) and I to watch Barca play a La Liga match against Getafe (10th April) at the Camp Nou stadium. I have never used this company before, but felt assured of their credentials (as they were listed with ABTA). The company did not let us down! We received flight and hotel coupons 10 days before departure, and our match tickets were waiting on our arrival at the hotel. I liked the flexibility of their packages as they allowed us the options to upgrade according to our needs (we upgraded our hotel and football tickets). Apart from the match, Barcelona was a great city to visit - plenty to see, very relaxed, and great food. I was very impressed by the inconspicous handling of crowds by police and was surprised by the ease of leaving the stadium.
A brilliant trip! Very well organised from start to finish. Hotel Catalonia Aragon is a bit away from the main sights of Barcelona but 10 minutes on the Metro and we were in the heart. An excellent two days just wandering the city, seeing thec sights, drinking coffee and eating tapas. For the match itself we went for the second level of ticket pricing and had superb seats - behind (and some way above!) the goal but at the very front of our particular tier. Atmospere superb despite 'only' 83000 attendance. Thoroughly recommend the whole package.
I recently travelled to Barcelona with my fourteen year old son. I contacted FootballBreak.co.uk who were extremely helpful and informative throughout. We chose a simple but very pleasant hotel which was walking distance from the stadium. Walking back, after the game, the atmosphere around town was wonderful. We had not only just seen Barcelona win, but Lionel Messi score a goal right below us! My son said he will never forget that moment! All the sights in Barcelona, including the street entertainers in the famous Les Ramblas, made this a most memorable experience for us bot.
