Whether you have only a brief stay in Barcelona and want to maximize the time or have many days to explore and want to use this as a starting point, it is truly a must-do. We had two guides, Peter and Matt - Peter took the grown up and Matt had the teenagers and we were perfectly paired. As the... More

Matthieu was a fantastic tour guide, combining his humor and charm with an obvious passion for Barcelona, it's history and it's food. The sidecar experience was so much fun - people smiled and waved as we whizzed through the streets, up to Montjuic, and past the beach in Barceloneta and the old winding streets of the Born area. We learned... More

We had a wonderful time with BrightSide Tours. The day was cold and windy, but in spite of the weather the tour was fun. Would recommend this as the best way to see the beautiful city of Barcelona.

A very big thank you to Peter for a fantastic experience from start to finish. We got a unique look at the city on the side car and bike and Peter's tour was so interesting, lots of historical and political detail that you don't get in the guide books along with tips on what to visit and where to eat....

Excellent all encompassing tour of Barcelona!!! You will see the small inner old city - the mountains - the ocean - nothing was left out. Great knowledgeable guide - great stories and sense of humor. The motorcycle was clean and well maintained. Helmets have ear and mouth pieces so you can hear each other and everything the tour guide is... More

I had never heard of this kind of a tour before but with this being my first trip to Barcelona and I only had one day, I wanted to see as much of the city as possible and this did the trick! My guide Matthew was excellent and made the tour very comfortable and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this... More

I did this tour at night and my tour guide, Matthieu took me everywhere! It was an amazing way to see so many parts of the city, by sidecar no less! We zipped through Gracia, Sagrada Familia and stopped into Parc Guelle. It was truly amazing!! Matthieu also runs a Food Lover's tour in Barcelona, which I hear includes cannelloni... More

My partner and I started our city break with the 3 hour must do tour and it didn't disappoint. A great way to get your bearings in a new city with a knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. Hotel pick up and drop off was ideal and we got some great recommendations for restaurants, bars and points of interest too. It was... More

This is the perfect way to start your visit in Barcelona! Matthew was a great guide! We selected the four and half hour tour which was great. We saw the whole city, got our bearings and knew where we wanted to explore further. It was a blast!

This was a fantastic start to a weekend in Barcelona. We really felt like a friend was showing us around his city. The trip hit all the must see landmarks but also managed to take us off the beaten track to discover some hidden gems. Matthieu´s tips for the rest of our visit also really hit the mark. I couldn´t... More
