Full description
Make light work of Barcelona’s narrow streets on a 2.5-hour electric bike tour, departing from the Gothic cathedral of the 13th to 15th centuries, and ending with a tour of the 19th-century L’Eixample. Your first stop will be the Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can admire the ornamental waterfall that Antoni Gaudi designed when he was still a student. Continue to El Born, a hidden gem of Barcelona’s old medieval center, and fast becoming its most fashionable district. Next, head to the Sagrada Familia in the grid-like streets of L’Eixample. Barcelona’s most iconic building, the spectacular - and still unfinished - cathedral would have been Gaudi’s crowning glory. Marvel at the distinctive spires and contrasting façades of the fairytale cathedral. You will skip the long lines to enjoy an audio-guide tour of its most impressive features. End with a cycle down Passeig de Gràcia to see 2 of Gaudi’s most famous apartment blocks. The Casa Batlló and Casa Milà are at the center of the famous "La Manzana de la Discordia," a collection of fanciful buildings of the Modernisme, with mosaic façades, ornamental balconies, and bizarre chimneys.

    Amazing, fun & informative, a MUST for Barcelona city break! Thanks!

    We booked this without too much thought, knowing our 3 teenage children were all good cyclists but we didn't consider big bikes and electric so our son, who has Downs syndrome struggled to get on with the bike at first. I was super impressed with our tour guide who instinctively offered a smaller bike, ran Toms bike back to the shop, collected new smaller bike and accommodated us so much. Its heart warming to feel so much support in the midst of a new city. The tour was amazing, fun, full of history and important facts that we wouldn't have known otherwise. I never dreamed 4 hours on a bike in a city could be so fun and relaxing. I felt safe and looked after throughout. The kids loved it too! After this experience, we will always do a bike tour on our city breaks from now on. Thank you so much to Barcelona E bike tours and our guide - Absolute Stars!

    A good way to get into the Sagrada Familia when tickets are sold out

    I was trying to purchase advance tickets to the Sagrada Familia to avoid the lines and everything was sold out - but then I found this eBike tour! It's a bit more expensive, but it was a great way to get the lay of the land in Barcelona and learn about Gaudi's life and work -- and it was the only way I was going to be able to see this amazing basilica on short notice. Do not miss it. Our guide was personable, knowledgeable, and very helpful -- she even gave us recommendations for other places to go, how to get there, where to eat after the tour. Glad I did it. Highly recommend.

    Wir waren mit Barcelona eines mit einer Gruppe von 11 Leuten und unserem Guide (Agata) unterwegs. Wir wurden sehr freundlich begrüßt und eingewiesen und es wurde sich Zeit genommen, für jeden das passende Fahrrad zu finden. Nach einer kurzen Sicherhetsunterweisung ging es Schiebend los zum ersten Stop, wo uns die Fahrräder erklärt wurden und wir einige Runden üben konnten. Wir sprechen und verstehen ganz gut Englisch, aber auch andere Teilnehmer waren überrascht, dass sie alles verstanden haben. Die E-Bikes machen viel Spaß, man bekommt viele interessante Informationen und Agata konnte viele weitere Fragen beantworten. Man merkt, dass sie selber ein riesen Fan von Gaudi ist und gibt die Begeisterung an die Teilnemer weiter. Etwas mehr Zeit in der Sagara Familia wäre toll, da die Sicherheitskontrolle bei uns ca 15 Minuten gedauert hat. Wer Kopfhörer mitgenommen hat, kann sie an das Audiogerät, das man in der Kirche bekommt, anschließen und hat die Hände frei. Sehr empfehlenswerte Tour!
