When it's bad it's even better

A rainy fall afternoon and our tour was pushed from 4 PM to 4:30 PM - wondering if we wanted to ride in the rain and end up in fading day light..... totally blew us out on how fantastic it was and overloaded our senses - phantasmagoric - ending up on slight downhill runs in fading light in the narrow passages of Born quarter past lighted shops and streets - everyone in our group was overwhelmed by the sensual experience - much much better than any bus tour that has obstructed views form most any seat - out in the environment with mild exercise and 180 views all around, great tour guide, great fun, great price - a favorite memory of Barcelona. If you are in much shape at all you can do and enjoy this - more of an adventure than just a tour. Two thumbs up - highly recommended. The rain just held down the crowds and made for a more enjoyable tour for us.

Great snapshot of what the city has to offer!

Thomas was an amazing tour guide! I don't even like history, but he kept me so engaged and interested in what he had to say that I was able to recite dates and names of prominent historical figures based on this tour alone! The architecture is amazing and the weather made it that much greater! The city is clean and definitely very biker friendly, so I highly recommend this tour on the first day of your stay to get a snapshot of what the beautiful city has to offer!
