What You Can Expect

Barcelona Electric Bike Tour Including La Sagrada Familia

Pedal around Barcelona on an electric bike!

Meet your guide in central Barcelona, and hop aboard your electric bike: a regular two-wheeled bicycle with a handy electric motor that kicks in when you start pedaling. Riding your electric bike is simple, but your guide will deliver a comprehensive safety briefing to put you at ease.

Put on your helmet, and then pedal along the streets around Barcelona Cathedral (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia), one of the city’s Gothic masterpieces. Gaze in awe at the cathedral’s exterior to see the mythical gargoyle creatures that adorn the roof, and then continue past the Arc de Triomf. Hear how the monument was built for the 1888 Barcelona World Fair, and has since become one of the city’s most distinctive landmarks.

After stopping for photos, cycle onward to La Monumental bullring to see where Barcelona’s traditional bullfights take place. Learn about the controversial sport that remains deeply ingrained in Spanish society, and then enter Barcelona’s central park: Parc de la Ciutadella.

Cycle along the sheltered pathways that weave through the park, enjoying the tranquil surrounds, and head out onto the streets of El Born to see one of Barcelona’s most vibrant neighborhoods. Pass El Born Centre Cultural, home to a series of exhibits about life in the city in the early 18th century, before arriving at La Sagrada Familia.

Park your bike and head past the crowds with your skip-the-line entrance ticket to enjoy roughly 1.5 hours of free time inside the UNESCO-listed cathedral. Make use of an audio guide if you wish, and hear how the famously unfinished monument is set for completion around 2026, in time for the centenary of its architect: the inimitable Gaudi.

Having explored the cathedral, hop back on your bike and start cycling back to the start point with your guide. If time permits, enjoy a last photo stop outside two other Gaudi creations, the private houses of La Pedrera (Casa Milá) and Casa Batlló. Then, continue back to the bike shop where your tour finishes.

This bike tour was wonderful! Agatha took the time to acquaint us with both the safety guidelines and features of the bike. She also began the tour in an open area where we could practice. She was knowledgeable and friendly, answering questions and adding insight to our stops on the tour. We were like the mother duck with her ducklings in tow, winding our way through parks and streets, along bike paths and lanes. Such a delightful way to see Barcelona. I highly recommend this tour!

We had a wonderful bike tour around Barcelona, including entry to the Sagrada Familia. We were escorted by the lovely Agatha who speaks fluent English and German so all our group could understand what she was saying. The bikes were very well maintained and the ladies' ones were brand new. We would not hesitate to recommend this tour, especially if you haven't got long in the city as you cover the distances so quickly. Our 11 year old also really enjoyed it. Agatha also recommended us places to eat out and was happy to recommend other sites to visit. Altogether a very good experience.

Our tour guide, Chaavi, was excellent, energetic and very knowledgeable. It was raining, but that didn't stop this group. The rain slickers provided were of good quality and really made the experience a pleasant one. I highly recommend this excursion. We learned so much about Barcelona's history, saw the beautiful sights in a four-hour time period. This was time well spent.

This tour hit all the spots I really wanted to see. Our guide was superb, he was very knowledgeable about Gaudi's architecture. The electric bikes were very easy to use and fun. It was great they didn't cancel our tour despite being the only two on the tour.

Xavi was a super guide, giving us lots of interesting information about all the sites. The electric bikes are terrific - so easy - make the ride such fun. Saw lots of Gaudi's works and toured the Sagrada Familia on skip-the-line with audio guide included. The time flew by. Highly recommend!
