Sidecar Tour

How about a local expert filling your mind with fascinating information about the most beautiful city in the world? Well, your dreams have come true!

Bike Tour

Barcelona is known to be one of the most bikeable cities in Europe. Though not entirely flat, the majority of the city center is on the easy scale, and if you combine this with its sunny and moderate Mediterranean climate, you can see why people love to cycle here. Seeing the city from the seat of a bike is a fun and unique way of visiting the sights. We recommend Steel Donkey Bike Tours for a truly off-the-beaten-path adventure.

Civil War Tour

When thinking of Barcelona, the Spanish Civil War is not the first thing that comes to most people’s minds. Nonetheless, it was a devastating time for the Catalan capital, and the city was greatly affected by it. Nick Lloyd is a fantastic story-teller and your number one expert on the subject, and has been guiding the Spanish Civil War Tour in Barcelona for several years now, shedding light on his adopted city’s dark history.
