So much fun! We did the 3 hour sidecar tour. We went as a family and don't think we will ever forget the moment together! I admit I was a bit nervous ( no one else was) about riding in a sidecar for I'm not a motorcycle person. But it was very smooth and never once felt unsafe at all.... More

Spent an amazing full day riding around Barcelona in a sidecar. Even on a day that was a bit rainy, we had a great day seeing the sights, learning some history and enjoying a wonderful meal. Highly recommended!

This is a great idea for a couple or a small group. It was a really good way to see the city with a custom itinerary. Guide was knowledgeable fun and flexible. It was just a blast to ride on the motorcycle or in the sidecar. All the people on the street looked at us with envy. It is expensive... More

My partner and I took the motorcycle with sidecar tour our first day in Barcelona, and our guide Quim made it wonderfully fun. We were asked what we'd like to see, which was an intro to all areas of the city, and we got that and more. Quim gave us a history of the city, an overview of each unique... More

I was in Barcelona alone for a few days and wanted to get a real sense of the city. The day before, I did a bicycle tour. That was so much fun that I almost decided to cancel this one. I'm so glad that I did not!!!! Upon arrival, first thing, I was asked what I would like to see.... More

We shared an evening with another couple in a van on a tour of 3 tapas restaurants. The tour was led by a delightful young lady (Niya) who astounded us with her language ability (we think she spoke 4 or 5 fluently) and her knowledge of what is hip and trendy in the Barcelona Restaurant scene. Since this was our... More

We had a great time exploring Barcelona by sidecar at night. It is an excellent way to rest your legs after a day walking. Our guide tailored the trip to our interests and was very informative and friendly. We stopped to take in a breathtaking view of the city lights from the mountain top and he offered us a tasty...

An Irish couple we met in Seville recommended this tour to us - and we are SO glad we listened and booked it (thanks guys!). What a brilliant way to see Barcelona!

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.
