A great way to spend half a day. Thanks Kassidy
Feb 2020
We always like to go on an organised tour of wherever we go for a holiday as it shows you all the main sites and with a good guide you get a great insight into the local culture and area.

A large group of us met outside Costa Coffee in the Gothic quarter where we were organised into two groups and sent to get our bikes, 10 minutes later we were kitted up and ready to go with tour guide Kassidy, there were about 20 in our group.

Around the Gothic area we were mainly pushing the bikes due to the volume of foot traffic, but we were soon on the road and taking in the sites. I won't mention every stop, but we took in maybe a dozen or so stops with our guide keeping us informed and always open to answer questions.

Towards the end of the tour we stopped off for lunch, ,the particular place didn't interest us that much so we popped round the corner for something different.

The tour in total took around four hours and flew by, if you can ride a bike you will be able to take the pace as it is very sedate with very few inclines and if you do lag behind the guides will wait.

We paid around £60.00 for the two of us, which while not cheap was still worth it, great equipment, interesting tour and an informative friendly guide.

Great day in Barcelona!!
Mar 2020
My girlfriend and I did this excursion and had a blast! We got to see so much of the city and our tour guide (Mikel) was super knowledgeable and friendly. We saw all the historical areas as well as biked along the coast line. The lunch stop was a great spot and had good food/drinks. Would recommend this to anyone early on in their trip because we saw many areas we wanted to go re-explore after the tour! After the tour our tour guide met with groups one on one to ask if they needed any help on recommendations for places to go/places to eat. He was terrific.

Mar 2020
Our tour guide, Emi, made this experience so enjoyable! She was very knowledgeable about the History of Barcelona, she was very professional but also fun! We visited the places me and my partner wanted to see and had the time to take photographs as well as bathroom breaks. The bikes were easy to use and the tour guide also brings emergency tools just incase. The ride is mostly flat and safe to ride around on the roads. At the end you would stop for lunch (not included) by the beach and this gives you a chance to get to know everyone and compare experiences. Our tour guide, Emi, also shared with us her personal opinions on the best places to eat/go out/explore which were very useful. Highly recommended!

Great way to see this huge city
Spent Monday afternoon on this tour with 'Stru' as the guide. Lovely guy, full of info and interesting facts! Learnt lots about Catalunya and their battles for independence. Took in alot of the city, the city is so big, could easily have been a whole day tour..... Bikes were easy to use, we had a small stop by the beach for lunch (dont advise the nachos, not good value), you dont get much time at each stop to take pics or mooch around which is a bit of a shame (you kind of have to do that yourself if you want to grab your camera), but the tour was fun and easy going. No big hills and safe, despite the Barcelona traffic, would recommend!

Amazing way to see Barcelona
Mar 2020 • Solo
The tour was amazing! This was my first solo trip so I was a little nervous about traveling alone. Jemma, our tour guide, was so knowledgeable and extremely professional. We visited mos guyt of the sites I had on my bucketlist and had enough time to take pictures. We stop by at the beach to have lunch (not included) and the food was good. For me, riding by the beach was the most fun part.

Great tour
We enjoyed this tour a lot with Emi. She was really friendly, funny and attentive. She was really taking care of everyone and making sure we enjoy. The tour with the bike made it easier to explore a lot in a short time and the stories of Emi made it more interesting.
