What You Can Expect
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.
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.
The guide was wonderful. Very friendly and personable.
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!
Brilliant fun. Friendly and very helpful when we missed our time slot, they organised another day. Would definitely recommend.
My electric bike tour with Jairo was wonderful! Jairo's knowledge is excellent and he imparts his knowledge with passion and love for this beautiful city. A brilliant guide!

What a great way to tour the city! The tour bikes were excellent! Easy to use electric bikes in great condition with comfortable seats with a knowledgeable guide! Great fun for all ages!
Loved it so much we thought about doing it the next day! Highly recommend.
We took a wonderful tour with Maria from Barcelona eBikes through the El Born and Gothic sections of Barcelona and got to see Gaudi's work, including La Sagrada Familia and the private houses. The electric bikes were easy and efficient and a great way to cover a lot of territory. Fortunately, we had our tour guide, Maria, to ourselves, and she made it very special for us.
WE had a great tour on the electric bikes with Maria, she was patient with us (We were late because of being unfamiliar with the town but we were able to finally figure it out and off we went on our adventure.) Maria was also VERY concerned about our safety in the busy wonderful town of Barcelona. I noticed other groups weaving in between cars and barely passing pedestrians. Our group was small and Maria was very interesting and gave us tips on where to go for the best chocolate and other interesting parts of the city. Our tour of Sagrada La Familia was great because our reservation was made early and the line was not so long. We learned local history while enjoying a beautiful day in the city of Barcelona. We would definitely recommend this tour! Thanks so much for making this experience one of our favorite memories of our time in Barcelona!
