Full description
Start the tour with a trip to Gaudi’s iconic masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia. Listen to your guide explain why it has been under construction for over 100 years and why it is still not finished. Continue the tour along one of the most popular avenues in Barcelona, the Passeig de Gràcia which contains several of the city's most celebrated pieces of architecture from artists such as Antoni Gaudí, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, Lluís Domènech i Montaner, and many others. As you glide along the street, soak up the rich historical atmosphere and listen to fascinating stories about the city’s past. Stop by the city’s Arc de Trumph next, which was built for the 1888 Barcelona World Fair, then head over to Ciutadella Park. Ride through the green heart of the city to reach the famous Cascade Fountain and see colorful parrots flying around. Travel back towards the Eixample district, passing by La Monumental, which is the last bullfighting arena in Catalonia which was still in use until 2011.

    Brilliant! A must for people who want to get the feel of Barcelona.

    I was shown around by David who was a fantastic guide. After a tutorial for riding the Segway we were off to see the sights. From then on it was history politics and art galore. David really knew his stuff and had photos to show of how Barcelona was like before olympics 1992. The tour really created a window for a foreigner to glimpse the Catalan/Barcelonian identity and leaves you thirsting for more. A brilliant intro to Barcelona and a must for first timers!

    Excellent fun

    My wife and I really enjoyed this Segway tour so much. Diego (our guide) was absolutely brilliant - he was passionate about Barcelona, funny and friendly. I was amazed at how easy it is to ride a Segway, with it being completely natural within a couple of minutes. I would definitely do this tour again, and as such would recommend it to anyone.

    An excellent and informative tour at a very reasonable price

    Booked this tour a day before we took it - got a confirming text from their office within hours, with clear directions as to where they were situated (very convenient location). Was met at their offices by our very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide Pablo, who spoke excellent English (as well as Catalan, Spanish, German....). The tour was excellent value for money which covered the gothic quarter, the promenade, harbour (out to Hotel W on the harbour wall), along the beach and back through the older harbour quarter. Pablo even took an extended video on the iPhone of our drive along the promenade We looked at the 'official' Segway tours, which are promoted by the Tourist office...however they are c.€5-10 more expensive and look to be much more crowded, so this was an excellent choice...thoroughly recommended
