We first took a Tuk Tuk tour (say that 5 times fast) in Madrid and enjoyed it immensely, so seeing Barcelona this way was an easy decision. Little did we know that the Tuk Tuk tours had only been in Barcelona for 3 weeks. We met our driver/tour guide, Luis, with his brand new vehicle near our hotel and off we went. Luis is the coordinator for all Tuk Tuks in Barcelona and was very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We enjoyed 90 minutes of history, laughter, and something unexpected. Since the Tuk Tuks are new to Barcelona, we had tourists and locals running up to us at every stop asking about the vehicles. We were happy to share our experience with all. I’m sure this endeavor will be as successful in Barcelona as it is in Madrid. Adios.

Wir hatten eine wirklich tolle Stadtrundfahrt mit Luis! Er war ein sehr angenehmer Tourguide, der wirklich alles über Barcelona weiß ! Unsere Tour ging pünktlich an Abholort los. Die Fahrt war auch sehr sicher und entspannend, wir konnten jede Menge von Barcelona sehen und lernen. Wir werden das nächste mal auf jeden Fall wieder eine Tour machen.

What a fun way to survey the city in 2 hours. In the quiet, open tuk-tuk we felt closer to the city and its residents than on a hop-on hop-off bus. Luis was a delightful & informative guide.

Que sorpresa tener un guía tan culto y llena de conocimiento. Un placer conocer a Luis y una manera muy buena ver la ciudad rápidamente. Lo recomendamos!

Card is useful to take you where ever in Barcelona.
