Had to drag my other half on this but he loved it as well once we got going. Great fun, informative tour from Phil who gave us loads of tips about the city. Wouldn't hesitate to book a tour with these guys!

My wife, teenage daughter, and I signed up for a 7 pm tour of Barcelona after flying in around 4 pm, and we're so glad we did! It was the perfect way for us to see Barcelona and get oriented so that we could better plan our next two days in the city. There are two great things about this company, compared to their competitors (I researched all the Barcelona egway companies on tripadvisor before flying from the US): (1) Their prices are cheaper (yet the service is just as good; I'm pretty sure this is because they supply the other companies), and (2) they let you set the time that you want to go on your tour. It is a huge advantage to be able to go when you want to, because you can more easily work around flights or other tours. I love the flexibility of this company! Tim (a Lithuanian who had also lived in England and Ibiza) was our tour guide, and he was a lot of fun (we were starving after the tour, so he recommended a great local chicken place, and he ended up joining us, which was even more fun because we could learn more about his own life and travels). He was also super patient with a young child on our tour who had never ridden a segway before (he looked to be about 10, and you could tell he was probably not safe enough to ride on his own); Tim pulled/held the child's segway handlebars for almost the entire ride to make sure that the kid could still enjoy the tour, but do it safely. I also really like that they restrict the tour size to 6. Tim took us on a great tour through Citadel park and all along the waterfront (Barcelonita) and not only told us about he history as we went (we stopped for rest breaks), but was very opinionated (in a good way--I hate when guides feel like they are promoting a place for referrals, or when they talk about everything in a positive way; I prefer opinions that seem more genuine, as Tim's were). Thanks for a great introduction to Barcelona and a fun ride!!

We were in Barcelona on July 1st awaiting a cruise departure and wanted to see as much of the city as possible. We had never tried segways before and decided this would be a great place to try them. Our 2 teenagers and my husband and I had such a wonderful experience! We took the 2 hour tour with Jonas and he was awesome! We saw so much of the city and found that the segways were a great way to see it. Within a few minutes, it felt like second nature to us. Our guide, Jonas knew so much about the city and was willing to answer every question we threw at him. Highly recommend this as a way to get to know the city and to experience a lot of it in a short amount of time.

We went with Segway Day Barcelona because they had only 4 and 5 star ratings and the reviews were quite positive.

Plus, they had a two hour tour starting at 9 AM that fit our schedule perfectly.

So glad we went with Segway Day!

Jonas was a great tour guide and was friendly, patient and easy going. He showed us a lot of Barcelona and gave us a just the right amount of information about the various sites we saw.

We had a short "getting acquainted" time with the segways outside the shop and then rolled around the city quite easily.

We saw a lot of wonderful and interesting sites - buildings, monuments, the beach area, the port, the Olympic village area and the Gothic area.

It is great fun and definitely recommended for families with older teens.

Recommendation: Book an EARLY DAY TOUR (~ 9AM for 2 hours is a good time) because the number of tourists and locals out and about is much lower at that time of day. Barcelona can get quite busy once the locals and the tourists wake from their slumber and get out and about. At 9AM there's lots of room on the pathways to travel and crossing the streets is much easier.

Thanks Jonas and Segway Day for making our tour of Barcelona very special!

This was a brilliant tour and the guide was outstanding. The tour takes you to see much of the city and port you might not normally see. The guide was brilliant and gave a superb commentary. All in all a fantastic trip and definitely recommended.
