We took the Barcelooona tour at the beginning of our stay and it was one of the best highlights of our entire holiday.

Just a few reasons to book a sidecar tour:

1) You'll be hanging out with a friendly, funny, and informative local the entire tour.
2) The sidecar itself is extremely fun. Take turns sitting in the sidecar and behind your tour guide - they're both completely different experiences.
3) You'll get the best photos - all the good spots are pointed out for you and special stops were made to make sure we got the shot.
4) The tour is catered to your own interests which means you get to enjoy what you want to.
5) We ended our tour with a list of best places to visit and eat at for the rest of our holiday, pointed out by a local who knows your interests - you can't get this information anywhere else.
6) Totally worth it.

We'll definitely be booking another BrightSide tour next time we're in beautiful Barcelona.

Barcelona from the perspective of a sidecar shouldn't be missed -- period! Our guide was knowledgeable and personable, and we learned so much about the city. The weather didn't really cooperate with us (cold and light rain) but we would do it again in a heartbeat! A fabulous experience that we won't soon forget.

What a kick to see a city from this point of view. Barcelona is particularly beautiful and to be able to see it so easily in one tour with a personal guide is an incredible experience. Peter was a terrific guide and really made this special. We had this as our first exposure to Barcelona and it was perfect. We saw so many things, learned a bit about the history and Peter's personal perspecive. This gave us a road map for what to do on the rest of our visit. Don't pass up this opportunity. It is truly unique and lots of fun.

Our thanks to our driver Matthew for an outstanding tour that we won't forget. It was the highlight of our European trip.

We are a 68 year old couple and we felt both safe and comfortable taking this tour. The helmets come equipped with both a microphone and headset so that all three parties can communicate while moving down the highway at 30 or 40 mph. The bike is small enough to go down narrow streets that would be impossible to see when taking a tour on the bus.

Although we have been to Barcelona a number of times, we have never seen it like we did on this trip. My wife had a recent knee replacement and was very comfortable sitting in the sidecar. This bike inside car have shock absorbers like a Lexis LS 460. We could see a bump in the road coming but we never felt it.

If you go to Barcelona we highly recommend you try this tour. You will also need to book this tour ahead of time long before you get to Barcelona. We had seen this tour on our last three visits to Barcelona and each time we called they were already booked. A lesson learned as we booked this tour a month before arriving in Barcelona.
