Booked this tour for our first day in Barcelona. We got to see so much and get a real feel for the city. Our driver - Joppe was excellent and so knowledgable about the history and culture of the city and even gave us some excellent recommendations for food and drinks. I would highly recommend using Brightside to anyone visiting the city. Highlight of our trip.

This tour was a highlight. Our guides, Alessandro and Tarik were fabulous and fun. We would definitely recommend this company and book another tour when we return to Barcelona.

My partner and I really enjoyed this treat of a tour. Loved the motorbike and sidecar, really appreciated the tapas places we went to - and so much easier when you're not entirely sure of the form and have someone along to choose and order for you - and indeed our guide, Alessandro, was a delight. We particularly appreciated an introduction to the traditional Catalan vermouth but everything was good - not a duff tapas in sight. Alessandro was great fun and very informative, though we never quite got round to explaining the Wallace and Gromit connection . . .

This tour was recommended to my wife by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Alesandro was a brilliant guide and gave us a fantastic tour of Barcelona and without doubt the highlight of our trip. If concerned about safety on the bike there is no need as it is a very steady journey stopping off at many attractions. He also seems to be a bit of an expert phone photographer and will take snaps on your phone at all the various attractions or what ever you want. While not the cheapest of tours i would still recommend if going to Barcelona to try and budget it into your trip as well worth it.

This sidecar motorbike tour was recommended to us by 2 different families with young teens so we thought we’d try it out. It turned out to be a fantastic way to see some Barcelona highlights, particularly as we were time poor (which was a shame as it would have been great to choose a longer tour but we couldn’t - we chose the 3 hour version)

Besides the fun of being on the back of a motorbike/in a sidecar, what made it so good were our hosts! Joao and Alessandro were both incredibly knowledgeable as well as lovely guys. We felt extremely safe (one adult and one kid per bike with the rider) - and we were miked up so we could hear our rider and talk between us/ask questions on the one bike. They were also flexible in that they showed us the planned route on the map/made suggestions, but also checked what we had already seen and if we had specific areas of interest. So definitely a cut above the usual tour - I would say it was intelligent, flexible and fun!

Thanks Joao and Alessandro!

Our tour this morning with Juan as our guide was a highlight of our stay in Barcelona. I was a bit concerned about the safety of traveling on the back of a motorcycle or in the sidecar. But there was no need for concern. Juan was a disciplined and safe driver ensuring we wore our helmets, that we were safely on the vehicle, and traveling at a safe speed, stopping for all traffic lights.

The tour was great fun as well as a perfect way to see Barcelona. Juan spoke into a microphone that we heard in the speakers in our helmets. Likewise we had a mic to talk to him, being able to ask and respond to questions. Juan asked us if there was any specific site or place we wished to visit and took us there. At the top of Montjuif we stopped to view the harbor and toast the day with sparkling wine in plastic wine glasses provided by the company along with the wine. Juan took photos of us with our cameras to remember the day!

Our friends were on a second motorcycle and sidecar with Joffa as their driver/tour guide and had equally high praise.

We recommend this activity highly as a fabulous and different way to visit all around the city.

Finally I need to add that we are seniors in our 70's with some minor aches and pains but had no problem doing this!

We had a fabulously fun 3 hour tour of Barcelona with Joppe and his motorbike with sidecar. He quickly kitted us out with helmets and put us at ease. He was very considerate and showed us a great alternative view of the city’s top sights providing us with an informative historic commentary. Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend!
