Meet Your Guide in the Gothic Quarter

Your day begins in the historic Gothic Quarter of the city. Your expert guide will introduce themselves and set you up with a perfect sized bike. Jump on, snap on your helmet, and get ready for an amazing journey through Barcelona!

In the Gothic Quarter, you'll ride through the medieval alleys and learn about the awesome tapas bars and shops that line the streets. Your guide will provide local recommendations for the best places to try and which tourist traps to avoid. Pass by the iconic La Rambla and see the Cathedral of Barcelona while biking through this historic city district.

Sagrada Familia and the Works of Gaudi

Along your journey you'll ride past a number of works by Antoni Gaudí, the influential architect who built many of Barcelona's most famous landmarks. From the outside, examine the intricacies of the world-renowned Sagrada Familia Basilica (admission not included). The church broke ground in 1882 and is still under construction today! Scheduled to be completed in 2026, Gaudi's masterpiece will finally take full form as he imagined it so many years ago.

As you continue down the avenues from the Sagrada Familia, you'll come across two of Gaudi's other great works. At Casa Mila, your guide will point out the self-supporting stone facades that are both visually and practically ingenious.

The colors and structures of Casa Batllo make the building impossible to miss from the street. Now a museum dedicated to Gaudi, the mansion is covered by whimsical animals and patterns that amaze architects to this day.

Ciutadella Park and the Olympic Village

Your guide will lead you past Barcelona's Arc de Triomf and through Ciutadella Park. The largest park in the city center makes a lovely break from the city streets and cycle paths, and is home to Barcelona Zoo, José Fontseré's magnificent Gran Cascada fountain, the Parliament of Catalonia, and many beautiful landscapes features.

You'll continue to the nearby Olympic Village. Built for the hugely successful 1992 Olympics, the Barcelona Olympic Village has become on of the top sites to visit in the city. See the stadiums, apartments, and park developed for the Olympiad 30 years ago. From here you'll have amazing views of the city and out to the Mediterranean Sea.

Barceloneta and Port Vell

A deepwater Mediterranean port since Roman times, Barcelona is profoundly connected to the sea. Ride along the waterfront taking in Barcelona's famous beaches. At Port Vell, see the luxury yachts and sailboats anchored in the marina. You'll also see the large statue dedicated to Christopher Columbus, and learn how Barcelona and the historic explorer are connected.

On the streets of the Barceloneta neighborhood, you will feel as if you're in a seaside village. Make sure to ask your guide where to find the best paella!

Tapas Treats and Drinks

Even with the ease of riding your electric bike, you're bound to have built up an appetite by the end of this fun city tour. Your guide will take you to a much-loved local restaurant to enjoy some tapas samples and drinks, before waving goodbye and leaving you to explore freely and revisit some of your favorite places you've seen on the tour.

We loved the tour with Alfredo. He was an excellent guide and was very knowledgeable about the history of Barcelona. We saw a great amount of the city in a few hours and could not have been happier. The bikes worked great and the cycling infrastructure in Barcelona is excellent. We would highly recommend this tour.

Great day in Barcelona
