We toured with Alex and Matt and they were amazing. We learned so much and got to see more than any other tour could have provided. We discovered parts do Barcelona we never I would have seen on a conventional tour. Thanks for an incredible ride.

We enjoyed our tour. We took the four hour tour, and really felt we covered almost every neighborhood of the city. From the highest part above Park Guel to the shore. Our audio cut out about half the time, so we really didnt get much information at all about our surroundings, but enjoyed seeing so much of the city We... More

It looked like rain our second night in Barcelona and feared the weather would spoil the evening we had so looked forward to. Qim arrived, held his hand out as if to predict the rainfall and declared it was nothing more than a typical Barcelona summer. And, he was right! He showed us where we would be dining that night...

My granddaughter and I took the tour with Alessandro. We had already taken the hop on hop off bus but we toured places we never seen. He was the best and on time to pick us up at our hotel.

My brother recommended Brightside after doing one of their sidecar city tours a few weeks ago. Quim was a great driver and guide and provided interesting commentary throughout the three hour tour. As a solo traveller this was a great introduction to Barcelona and a fantastic way to spend a morning!

Ever done a "hop on hop of" bus trip with recorded guiding via lousy headset? Try BrightSide Sidecar trip instead when you go to Barcelona. The guide (Alessandro was our guide) will take you to see whatever YOU want, and skip the things you don't want. We had already booked a visit to Sagrada Familia later the same day as... More

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.
