The perfect way to see Barcelona! The bikes are properly maintained and easy to use. Julia was excellent and take care of everybody (wait to be sure that all participants follow ).

Miguel, our guide was awesome! Super nice and very knowledgeable. Learned a lot about the city and culture. Definitely would recommend to get a good layout of the city.

We saw a lot of the city, some of the sights from a different side than by bus, we were a larger group, but it wasn't stressful - we would do it again and again

It was such a great way to begin to experience the city.
