Full description

The tour begins beside the fountain in Plaça Reial where your guide will be waiting for you. Then, get on your bike and make your way through the back streets of the Gothic Quarter towards Placa del Rei. From there, the tour heads past the Barcelona Cathedral toward one of the city's greatest pieces of Modernista architecture, the Palau de la Música Catalana concert hall.  Continue on from there as you head to Ciutadella Park with a stop along the way at the Arc De Triomf. After enjoying a walk around the gardens and a refreshing drink, you will be on the move again towards Europe's second most visited landmark, La Sagrada Familia. There will be time to take photos and just generally be in awe of Gaudi's final masterpiece.  Then it's down to the beach to soak up the Mediterranean Sea. Finally, the tour heads back up to the vibrant neighborhood of El Born where you’ll have the last stop at the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar before returning to the starting point of your tour.

Our guide Lorenzo was funny and extremely knowledgeable. The tour went at a comfortable pace and our guide did well keeping us in the shade as much as he could. My knowledge of Barcelona and Catalonia is now much more extensive and I feel I have a much better understanding of the city’s history and culture.

We had Benja (min) as a guide and he tells super fun and fascinating about the things you see. And even when it's hot, cycling is great to see a lot because you have some coolness from cycling. Just don't book lunch, because they haven't had it since before Corona!
