This sidecar tour definitely was an absolute highlight of our Barcelona trip! Our guide Peter (Pjotr) found amazing spots which revealed completely new facets of Barcelona - at night. Before the start, he explained the tour to us and asked whether we have specific wishes. He was a very safe driver and we always felt totally cool behind his seat... More

We were so pleased we booked the open top van tour on our first morning in Barcelona, it gave us a good idea of the layout and how to plan the rest of the break. The guide Peter was fantastic and very knowledgable of the cities history and culture. The tour is very relaxed and would recommend to anybody..also Peter... More

What an attentive, fun, detail oriented tour company! I had used them a couple of years ago with my two teenage sons, and came back to Barcelona with my parents and boyfriend, and they nailed yet another tour! I would totally absolutely recommend Brightside for any type of tour of Barcelona. They know their stuff, love what they do, and... More

On the Friday Quim, our driver & guide took us all over the place, to Montjüic to see the magic fountain, even down little side streets where no tour bus could ever go! Then on the Saturday afternoon we did it all again but to different parts of the city - with Quim again - a very knowledgeable guide. This... More

Dear Michael, Thank you so much for choosing BrightSide Tours and for your great feedback! The combination of our day tour and our night tour is really great!

Quem and Peter gave my family a great introduction to Barcelona. A fabulous tour with details not found in guide books. Great food recommendations, and a good understanding of how the city is laid out. Our cousins had suggested this and they were spot on. What a fun adventure, highly recommended!!!

This was a surprise organised by my wife and fulfilled all of her expectations. Our third visit to Barcelona and our trip with Piotr was by far the best experience and the best way to see and understand the city. Safe, comfortable and the clear audiology through the microphones and speakers made our 3 hours go quickly and fulfilling. We... More

We only had a limited time in Barcelona and this was simply the best way to see the most of Barcelona with only a few days in town. Just do it!!!!

Took my mom to Barcelona as this has been her lifelong dream. I wasn't sure if she was going to enjoy this particular experience, but she is one of those whose mantra is "you might as well do it while we are here...". So, I made a last minute reservation for a night tour. We had a fun and memorable... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
