Bring water and a snack along :-
This tour was the best tour my husband and I have been on! It was so much fun riding the bikes through the city and Montjuic Hill. You did not need the electric power of the bike in the city and down the hill. But having it as an extra for up the hills was fantastic! The guide Marc was excellent! He is a history teacher so he really added a lot of history while we were stopped to take pictures along the route. He also volunteered to get my husband and I and he would pose us to get the background perfectly for pictures both using our good camera and the iPhone to post on Facebook. The tour gave us a great views from the hillsides and the cable car. The boat ride was relaxing with breathtaking views. Marc modified the tour a little to suit all guests since we had already seen or about to see the Gaudi Basilica. We saw area much more faster than a walking/bus tour that we did the next day. This is a must tour for young adults, older kids, and adults who like biking or even those who will bike a little. We are in our 50s and the others on tour were older. It was fantastic for all!
Superb tour. The e-bikes made the tour a doddle. I thought the cycling might be tiring but the e-bikes do 80 of the work. Our tour guide Pablo was brilliant. A real gent. Great variety in the half day tour - see Barcelona by bike, a cable car ride up Montjuic to the fort, cycle around the fort, back down to the bay for a 40-min boat ride, back on the e-bike for a tour of La Sagrada Familia then cycle to the shop. One piece of advice: The We Barcelona shop is hard to find. Its in a tiny lane at the back of the Cathedral de Barcelona. Give yourself extra time to find it.
A wonderful tour and fantastic value for money when you consider that the tickets for the cable car and the boat are included ... plus the e-bikes and the guide's time. Highly recommended.
Highly recommended. Macro our tour guide was awesome. Great value for money. Perfect way to see the city when you have limited time.
Great tour, the guide was great and took us to a lot of different places. We would go again.
that tour was very good our tour guide was very very good and he was very good with me he know his area on the tour and we would do it again
Excellent tour. Our guide was Evelyn who knew a lot about the history of Barcelona. We did the full day tour which included admission to the Sagrada Familia, the Gaudi park, a trip on the cable cars and a boat trip! Excellent value for money - would definitely recommend it
This was a great experience and allowed us to get our bearings around Barcelona. The hill climb to Montjuic was certainly made easier using the e-bikes. Only minus was that we lost time due to one family on the tour that insisted on trying to bring their 8 year old son - not a good idea!
Really enjoyed this half day tour. Luckily there were just 4 of us which was a bonus but cannot imagine how a group of 12 would have managed on the busy roads with all the traffic lights etc. The meet point is not that easy to find although in a central tourist area so we were glad we had done a reckie the day before to make sure we could find it. We weren't offered helmets but if you want one I'm sure they were available. We had to go to a second point to collect our bikes - which were brilliant - so we were probably a bit late departing. The bikes were really easy to master and the battery basically kicked in to boost your own pedal power. We didn't tire and hills were no problem.
We were hurried along at a fast pace as we had to be up the mountain and back down in time for the scheduled boat. We took the bike on the cable car with us up to the top and rode them back down. We would have liked more time to appreciate the views at the top of the cable car and on the way back down to the harbour. We enjoyed our boat ride but our guide stayed back on land so we didn't get any information about the sights we could see from the boat. We were straight back off on the bikes again and went to some key tourist places. Pablo our guide was very friendly and informative and spoke excellent English. We rode the bikes back to our meet point on many of the bicycle lanes through some very busy traffic. As active adults in a small group we really enjoyed it. It wasn't a detailed tour - so was fast paced and good fun.
Excellent day - only reason we did not give it 5 stars was because the bikes were not all fully charged when we started and towards the end of the day a couple of the bikes there were 4 of us were running out of charge. Also one of the party fell off the bike - on coming child!- and the rep was more concerned for the bike than the person. We saw so much if Barcelona and with the electric bikes IT was excellent getting up the hills. We would highly recommend this tour.
Tour guide: Excellent. Chevy was great! Highly recommend him!
Places visited and tour itself: excellent
Bikes: We-Bikes equipment are borderline horrible. Old. Uncomfortable seats. Electric part was not easy to use and broken most of the time. They need newer, easier to use, more comfortable bikes!!!
Office staff: Not overly friendly or welcoming, you're in the customer service field, try SMILING!
Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback. The local supplier had a temporary problem with the bike’s motors but they have informed us this was fixed soon afterwards. All equipment is checked and maintained on a daily basis to ensure the best service is offered.
