Great tour, great guide!

We had booked a tour with a German guide. Chris had led us through Barcelona in a humorous and adventurous way and at the same time told us an incredible amount about the city, its history and details of the buildings with backgrounds. Very well done! Definitely recommendable. Book at the beginning of your visit to Barcelona to get an overview! Thank you very much :)

Very informative. The guide (Kris) was well prepared.

Kris, the guide, has been living in Barcelona for 15 years. You can tell that he knows this city well and knows how the residents "tick". He loves this city and that also applies to the participants. His information is very extensive and additional questions have always been answered satisfactorily. Even when my wife had a flat tire with her bike during the tour, he was able to quickly get a spare bike. He drove very carefully and always kept an eye on the whole group. Thanks again to Kris.

A great way to get a first impression of the city!

We really enjoyed discovering the city by bike. It's also definitely well suited for kids. There are lots of safe bike routes, but they don't have them all over.. Thus it's necessary to proceed with caution at crosswalks and when riding on the street. We took the tour on a Sunday, since the traffic isn't so bad on that day of the week. I would also have liked a little more info about the sights and maybe also a few other sightseeing tips, since you don't get to see all of the interesting places in the city. However I'd highly recommend this tour.
