Unique way of exploring this busy Spanish city. My sister and I were only there for 3 days, so as you can imagine, with it being a first time visit, so much to see and do and so little time to explore everything, we wanted to find a tour which would allow us to explore the city in a different...

Thank you for such a great day! This was truly the highlight of our visit to Barcelona especially for our three children who preferred seeing the city from the comforts of a sidecar (equipped with blankets and wind guards to protect from the chilly weather we had that day) vs on foot like we had done for the days before...

Spent a week in Barcelona and our best memory is seeing the city in the Sidecars! The guides are fantastic and very knowledgeable and there's no better way to check out the city than riding on a motorcycle! Whether this is your first time, 100th time or your a local from Barcelona, you've got to experience this!!

I was initially reluctant to do this tour, but am I glad my wife persuaded me. Peter was an ideal guide, showing us numerous points of interest, making some informed recommendations regarding restaurants (which we did take up) and, most of all, giving us a most enjoyable and informative tour. The bike and side-car were comfortable and suitable for all... More

Absolutely loved it. Quim was our driver and we had a blast. Even though it was cold, he had blankets for us so I was very cosy in the sidecar. Thank you! I highly recommend you do this tour. You get to see so much of Barcelona and at your own pace.

This is a fabulous and fun way to see Barcelona. Our driver was excellent! I highly recommend you do the tour early in your stay in Barcelona though because the driver will give you tips that are helpful the rest of the stay such as how to get to different areas, things that you should see, when you should see...

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.
