Our guide was Pau. This was our second time on Segways so we needed to remind ourselves how to ride it. Pau asked us which route we wanted to take since we already did some tours. We saw Barcelonetta, Port Vell, Olympic village, beautiful sight of Barcelona and many more significant buildings. Pau is a real and proud Catalanyan and it was amazing to see such a spark when he was talking about history. Overall, this was amazing experience. Only one thing we didn't like: almost 3 hours in, my partners Segway died so we needed to figure out how to deal with it. Pau rentex a bike for my partner and he was pushing dead segway with him to the HQ. He told the guys working there what happened and that we will be half an hour late coming back since that was how long it took to come back. We went back to sightseeing and same thing happened with New Segway towards the end of the tour. When we were going back, HQ guys called Pau asking him why was he late and that we are over time. I find that bad.

Our guide was Martina and she was really nice and knowledgable. She showed us few of Gaudi houses, walked us through Barcelona and then brough us to helipad. Helicopter ride is absolutely amazing experience and it is really not a problem even if you're afraid of hights. Martin was there to send us all of. Boat trip was done on our own and you can use it next day. Absolultely recommend this!

Guide Lunis was charming and charismatic. He provided a well prepared diet of information about the city and showed the places where to eat. Couldn´t have asked for more. Segway riding was way easier than expected.

Even though we did not have an international drivers licence , the driver still drove us around Barcelonetta explaining the car's capability. Wonderful experience.

Nice quick turn on the wind with Captain Marcelo. Competent, friendly and flexible.
