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.
This is my guide to ‘the other Ibiza’, to the romantic, tranquilo, hippy side of the island, to what I’d like to think of as ‘the real Ibiza’. Based on my ridiculously romantic experience with my girlfriend Rosana.
