Our group of 12 booked this tour. We all took turns between the vintage motorcyles and the open air bus. It was so much fun. The guides were fantastic and the food and wines were great.

My husband and I started a 16 day trip through Europe in Barcelona and my husband found BrightSide on trip advisors. Given we love tapas, we decided that a tapas food tour via a motorcycle with sidecar would be a great way to kick off our adventure. Our guide, Peter who is one of the owners exceeded our expectations. Peter... More

Juan was a fantastic guide, taking us to and through great locales in the city. Very personable, knowledgeable and fun. It was really great to be effectively "outside" a vehicle; you feel much more within the environment of the city. Would absolutely do this tour again.

Quite honestly one of the best trips I have ever done. If there is one thing to do in Barcelona it is to join Brightside for a sidecar tour. My only regret? Not booking the longer trip.

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.
