Full description
Experience the beauty of Barcelona by Segway on a 3-hour tour of old and new neighborhoods, including the former fishermen’s enclave of Barceloneta.

Following a short training session on the easy-to-operate, self-balancing vehicles, start by riding to the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic), known for its 4th-century Roman Wall. Along the way, learn how the 1992 Olympic Games dramatically changed the city, including its connection to the sea.

Marvel at the urban art of Sant Sebastià beach, and see street performers entertain the crowds. Admire the yachts and sail boats of the Old Port (Port Vell). Pass through the former fishing village of Barceloneta, and learn the dramatic history of the Catalan people and their struggle for independence along the way.

Pause at the ground floor terrace of the W Hotel for a panoramic view of Barcelona’s coastline. Continue to Port Olimpic, site of the Olympic Games and now a hip night spot of seafood restaurants and nightclubs.

Reflect in the tranquil gardens and open-air spaces of the Olympic Village, before riding to the Arc de Triomf, built as the main entrance to the 1888 Universal Exhibition. End in Parc de la Ciutadella, and hear how vast areas of La Ribera were demolished to create the city’s only green space for decades.

Excellent private tour with David, a very knowledgable guide.

Excellent private tour with David, a very knowledgable guide. We covered quite a lot of the Barcelona seafront and parks area. David was an excellent guide its good liquistic skills. He had a high regard for safety. The pace was just right. You need a good map to find the meeting place in the arrow alleyways of theBarrio Gothic.

A great way to see Barcelona!

Although some of my friends were apprehensive about riding (and potentially being run over by) a Segway, piloting the Segway was completely intuitive. Touring on a Segway is now my preferred means of seeing a new city -- we probably saw in 3 hours what might otherwise have required 2 days to walk. Philip was a great tour guide!

Eine ganz tolle, individuelle Tour mit Guide Knut. Er hat tolle Ortskenntnis und Detailwissen. Da wir nur zu zweit mit Knut unterwegs waren, konnten wir die Tour frei nach unseren Wünschen gestalten. Wir würden die Tour jederzeit wieder machen und können sie uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen. Preis/Leistung passt. Segways technisch einwandfrei.
