Worth it

Ben/Benji/the guy with the long hair was great. Very friendly and open. The tour itself was good it was an easy but fun route. The talks at the stops were informative, if I had one gripe it would be that they were all very history focused rather than what is going on right now. But I suppose that is to be expected. Great value for money would recommend.

I loved this biking tour, the guide was super friendly and just awesome, he knew all the best historic facts and made sure the group kept together and had time for little breaks if needed etc. I did this on my last day and I'd seen most of the sights previously but it was still amazing and gave a new perspective to everything I'd already seen. I would highly recommend, worth the price for sure! Group was super friendly also

The tour was AMAZING. Benji was a fabulous guide and had an insightful, balanced and very informative tour for the group. I would absolutely do this tour again. I learned so much about the history of Spain and Barcelona with careful attention to safety and the well being of the group. Cannot recommend strongly enough !

It was a fun way to see lots of the city without our feet hurting from walking! This tour gave us a good starting point to know where in Barcelona we want to spend more time for the remainder of our trip. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and shared interesting, memorable stories at each location. I wish there had been a bit more time for connecting and interacting with the other travellers in our group built into the tour. It was pretty much just tour, except for a short stop at a cafe for drinks and tapas. Notes: 1) This tour is best if you are already competent riding a bicycle - do not plan to learn to ride a bicycle on this tour! I honestly couldn't believe that people in the past (not my group) have signed up for this tour without knowing how to ride a bike. 2) The "lunch" part of the morning tour is really just a short stop at a cafe for drinks and tapas. There is not time for ordering something like menú del día. Plan to eat a good breakfast so you are not too hungry.
