If like me you’re passionate about cycling and want to explore Barcelona, you’ll definitely want to get involved in one of these fun, eco-friendly and informative cycling tours of Barcelona.

Starting off in the old town and weaving your way down to the port, along the beach boardwalk to the leafy Parc Ciutadella, these head-turning bamboo bikes are the perfect way to explore Barcelona’s famous beauty spots.

This is unquestionably one of the very best bike tours in Barcelona!

Choose from either the ultra-comfortable chopper style bike or the hipper, thinner-wheeled road bike and follow your guide whilst stopping off at key spots to hear fascinating stories about the city’s past.

Note: Groups are always private — just you and your friends/loved one. The company’s passionate guides mean you you won’t miss a thing!

The Verdict

If you’re coming to Barcelona and you want to see and learn about as much of the city as possible, then I absolutely recommend taking a bike tour. And if you’re going to take a bike tour, you’d be hard pushed to find a more friendly, knowledgable and professional company than this.

The groups are private so you can see more of what you want and enjoy the company of your friends, family and/or loved one and not have to struggle to hear your guide speaking. And the bikes are absolutely beautiful.

The ideal Barcelona bike tour.
