This was an excellent bike tour. Alvaro was our guide and we could not have asked for a better host. He was funny, interesting, knowledgeable and truly enjoyed the experience along with us. Our tour group consisted of 12 people (8 were from our personal party, 4 adults and 4 teens) and 4 were from elsewhere. We all had such fun together. It is a completely different experience to see the city on a bike than it is to see it on foot or from a taxi or from the top of a bus. We learned so much about the city and the different monuments and also enjoyed a lovely lunch down by the waterfront. I have participated in several bike tours with the Fat Tire company, in Paris and at Versailles, and I will add this Barcelona tour to my favorites list. Thank you so much for an excellent bike tour, Alvaro. We will recommend it to everyone we know! PS - Are you ready for some football???? 😂😂

We had the BEST time today with a friendly, funny and intelligent tour guide Ben. It did not feel like 4 hours, he made cycling round the city of Barcelona fun and informative giving us plenty of recommendations for the rest of the trip. Thank you for a fantastic start to our holiday! HIGHLY recommend!

Perfect introduction to the city. Stru was an engaging and knowledgable guide. The cycling is easy and at a gentle pace. Felt very safe in the dedicated cycle lanes - you are far more likely to hit a pedestrian than get hit by a truck! Small group made it easy to stick together, and it was very sociable. The tour covered an incredible amount of ground in a relatively short space of time (4-5 hours) and far more than you could achieve in a walking tour. We’ve used fat tire tours in other cities and can’t recommend the company highly enough. This was the highlight of our trip to Barcelona. Also excellent value for money.

Just a lovely way to spend the day. Our guide Bea, was delightful, informative with a sly wit. It was great to learn about the city history and well as gain geographical markers for when we explored the city on our own. Enjoyed meeting our fellow riders who were from all over, Scotland, Canada, Rhode Island. Would highly recommend- and would do so as early in the trip as possible.

Mische (Michael) was our tour guide. We started around 11 and ended around 2:30 visiting several sites around the city. He was friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and accommodating and took lots of pics for us. He let us stop at the sagrada Familia for about 20-25 min or so which was nice so he we had lunch after. Pack water with you- you can attach to the bike and be prepared for just a few hills, otherwise it was an easy ride. Really happy with this experience.

I’m not super confident on bikes especially when I’m in a new city but I had a great time with Misha (or Mischa?, not sure) as our tour guide. He was very good about keeping our small group together. As I said, I’m not the best bicyclist but Misha gave very clear directions and told us what to expect on the road or bike path before we starting biking again which I really appreciated. My bike was easily to maneuver and brake with 3 different gears which was all we needed because it was such a gentle ride. Misha was very informative and we stopped at really interesting places. One thing I wish I knew before is that there is no scheduled lunch stop because of COVID precautions right now. I got super hungry halfway through but was able to pick up a quick bite at a cafe during our Sagrada Familia stop.

My husband and I already believe the best way to see a city in Europe is on bike, but this was the first time we took our children on one (two 7YOs, a 12YO and a 17YO). It was absolutely fantastic. Elena was our guide and she was incredibly knowledgeable, thoughtful, interesting, and funny. We could not have picked a better person to introduce us to the city and feel very lucky we got her! She was great with our kids (even when they wanted to micromanage how we crossed streets) and I was amazed at how much ground we covered in four hours. Would do again in a heartbeat.

We did this tour on our first day in Barcelona - a great way to find out the different areas of the city. Cycling was easy going, mainly on dedicated cycle ways. Tour route had 8-10 stops including a stop for lunch at the beach. Tour guide Stru was engaging, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the city and Barca’s history - even gave us an extensive list of restaurant recommendations over lunch too!

Our tour guide, Emi, made this experience so enjoyable! She was very knowledgeable about the History of Barcelona, she was very professional but also fun! We visited the places me and my partner wanted to see and had the time to take photographs as well as bathroom breaks. The bikes were easy to use and the tour guide also brings emergency tools just incase. The ride is mostly flat and safe to ride around on the roads. At the end you would stop for lunch (not included) by the beach and this gives you a chance to get to know everyone and compare experiences. Our tour guide, Emi, also shared with us her personal opinions on the best places to eat/go out/explore which were very useful. Highly recommended!

Rode the bike tour today--super fun & informative! Stephanie was an engaging presenter, knowledgable, & very friendly, welcoming & kind, incl. great with children who were present. (the 8-yr old boy LOVED it and was a champ on this tour btw.) Biking around was such a wonderful way to experience the city, I'm hooked! it was exciting to zip around and get a little exercise, learn about the bike lanes & traffic, while discovering the city for the first time. I want to rent a bike now during the rest of my stay, and Stephanie helped me w/ suggestions on places to go beyond. Ending with a group lunch on the beach allowed us all to chat & get to know each other more, talk about our travels & share stories, very rich experience! Highly recommended!
