Steel Donkey Bike Tours

Barcelona, Spain
About Steel Donkey Bike Tours
Steel Donkeys are the first and only alternative bike rides of Barcelona. We're not about dry historic facts and the same daily routines that characterise other mass market bike tours. We're about getting on a bike and exploring the hidden corners of the city, like flea markets, futuristic skyscrapers, vintage shops, secret courtyards and local beaches... Our guides are young, knowledgeable locals who were either born in Barcelona or have lived here for several years. We like to talk about the real experience of life in the city, modern politics, culture and stories. But most of all we like to have a fun relaxing day out on a bike with our new friends... you! We ride with a maximum of 8 people, offering a more personal experience, greater mobility and sustainability (as this way we don't contribute to the congestion of mass tourism). When you ride with us you'll never feel like just another tourist on the treadmill. Hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

It was just what we wanted - to see the less touristy bits of Barcelona and to get a feel for life , politics and traditions here , from an insider . Mariana was a great guide , engaging , knowledgable and funny :) The bikes were super comfy and 4 hrs was perfect . 5 stars - would really recommend this experience

Can’t recommend it enough! Our tour guide Marianna was excellent. She is very informative and obviously loves her city. If we visit again we’ll be sure to book with her again :)

Today we had a bike tour with Augusto. Although the guide was nice, the tour was a bit dull. Sadly, we didn't have the feeling the guide was very informative. We're a bit disappointed.

We had a fantastic morning - the trip was everything it promised to be. We were taken to unusual sights, with a small group and great insights with real local knowledge. Highly recommended.

Given how busy and at times crowded Barcelona is, we were surprised at how easy it was to get around the city via bikes. It was a terrific way to see many of the buildings, get the history, and hear stories about the city. This was a much better way to see the city than a walking tour we had done previously because you get to see so much more. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun.
