Wonderful experience. We were able to see Barcelona entertaining ourselves with a nice bike ride (not tiring) accompanied above all by a very nice and very well prepared guide. I highly recommend this different tour than usual.

BO was a really nice guide! It was a perfect first impression of barcelona and he gave us a lot of tipps for bars and other places we also need to see.

A great value for the cost! Of course a tour is only as good as it’s guide, an ours was excellent, and good company!

All was good. Maybe a little more time at the Guell Park.

It was such a great way to begin to experience the city.
