Planning Your Visit

  • Seating limit

    Please note that in the Montjuic cable car seating is limited to eight people per car.

  • Local lingo

    Barcelona's status as capital of Catalonia means that the official language is Catalan. If you already know some Spanish or French, it'll be easy to learn a few Catalan words - locals will be very happy to hear you try!

  • Sun safety

    It's easy to forget sun safety when you're having fun, but remember to keep reapplying sunscreen - especially if you're active outdoors!

  • Get more for your money

    If you think you'll be sampling a lot of museums in Barcelona, why not look into a ticket that will give you discounted entry to a few museums or skip-the-line privileges?

Tour was excellent. We left on time, the scooters operated flawlessly and the guide was superb. Navigating the complex web of bicycle paths would have been a serious challenge on our own. Our guide made it look easy. We covered a lot of terrain and the guide provided an interesting ongoing commentary on all the major and minor sites we stopped at. Excellent value and a very enjoyable way to experience the city. Highly recommended!!

The hop on hop off bus was a great way to see all over the city and get off at certain points. We did the whole tour first and stayed on for one circuit, then decided where we wanted to get off later. Having the commentary explain what everything was, was really helpful. The buses came every 10 -15 minutes so we never had to wait around for very long A really great way to see the city

My son and I had a fantastic time. This was my 5th visit to Barcelona but the 1st time on a Segway tour, I got to see things I hadn’t seen before so I loved it. Our guide was brilliant and full of interesting knowledge about the areas visited. The Segways are such good fun ! I would highly recommend this experience.

Our guide, Victor, was very nice, very friendly. He gave us an amazing experience, taught us alot about the basic history of the places we visited, was always checking to see that we were safe and gave us some very good tips on where to go and not to go. 10/10 for him!

Our guide Phil was very good. It was our first time on segways and he made it so easy while providing lots of information about the history of Barcelona and Catalunya
