I arrived at the meeting point on time but I couldn't meet the tour guide although I continued to wait for more than one hour while trying sending messages and calling some times but in vain. After giving up participating in the tour, I was confused and obsessed by the negative feeling all day and wasted a lot of time of my one day trip. Although after the conversation the tour agency agreeded to issue refund, I didn't know why this happened in the end. I would like to ask the agency to investigate the cause and implement measures to prevent the same incident from happening to future participants. As the tour agency seems to give high quality of tour, I wish you success in the future by making use of this incident. On the other hand, I recommend participants to gather at the meeting point 15 minutes in advance and try to find the guide carefully as they don't seem to have any sign.

Response from Buenavistabcn, General Manager at Buena Vista Tours
Responded 2 weeks ago
Im sorry to hear about your experience. It says on all bookings that we ask our guests to arrive 15 minutes prior to the departure time to avoid these problems. The guide waited for you at the meeting point for 10 minutes after the departure time (25 minutes in total). She also messaged and rang you but there was no response. So the tour continued on as we had other guests waiting. On top of this we have offered you a full refund for the inconvenience. I'm sorry if you still feel we are responsible for your bad experience and not sure what more we could do to rectify it.

A very relaxing cycle through the city; with a lovely and personal narrative from Paula. Small groups. Good coverage of the city (and not strenuous). A bike seat for our 4 year-old was arranged easily, and the route was largely in the shade. We loved it and would do it again.

We were there right before the pandemic, and it was a great tour. We booked online based on TA reviews, but didn't know to show up about 15 minutes early at the meeting spot. We were right on time, so no problem. Our guide was great, very personable, she showed us around town and was flexible with what we wanted to spend time (since we had already seen a few sights). The bikes were in good shape, and the pace was comfortable and slow enough to take in all the sights. She provided information as we went, and we all had a very nice time. Highly recommend this tour.
