Barcelona: Bike Tour
- Duration options: 3 - 4 hours
Barcelona's Montjuic is the city's highest mountain. Its park is also a microcosm of the city's culture - the beautiful nature, fascinating museums and well-known art.
What better way to get a view over the slopes of Barcelona than from the air? The cable cars departing from Montjuic have been open since 1970 and will let you see the city in a whole new light.
Taking a bike tour around Barcelona is a healthy, ecological, and sociable way to explore the city! Parc de Montjuic is one of the stops - pedal up and downhill for an exhilarating experience.
Peeking out of the hill, this place provides a complete introduction to the artwork and life of Joan Miro, the legendary Barcelonian painter.
More treats for art fans: this is an aggregate of the different styles of art from the Catalonia region, which maintains its own unique identity from the rest of Spain. Check out the permanent Romanesque exhibition.
In 1992, Barcelona hosted the Olympic Games right here in Parc de Montjuic. Italian architect Vittorio Grigotti designed the stadium's unique olympic tower.
Please note that in the Montjuic cable car seating is limited to eight people per car.
Barcelona's status as capital of Catalonia means that the official language is Catalan. If you already know some Spanish or French, it'll be easy to learn a few Catalan words - locals will be very happy to hear you try!
It's easy to forget sun safety when you're having fun, but remember to keep reapplying sunscreen - especially if you're active outdoors!
If you think you'll be sampling a lot of museums in Barcelona, why not look into a ticket that will give you discounted entry to a few museums or skip-the-line privileges?

Tour was excellent. We left on time, the scooters operated flawlessly and the guide was superb. Navigating the complex web of bicycle paths would have been a serious challenge on our own. Our guide made it look easy. We covered a lot of terrain and the guide provided an interesting ongoing commentary on all the major and minor sites we stopped at. Excellent value and a very enjoyable way to experience the city. Highly recommended!!
Our guide, Victor, was very nice, very friendly. He gave us an amazing experience, taught us alot about the basic history of the places we visited, was always checking to see that we were safe and gave us some very good tips on where to go and not to go. 10/10 for him!
We had a wonderful experience. Our driver was very knowledgeable and experienced. He was a pleasure to be with, spoke excellent english and very informative.
Getting the audio guide is a must if you are at all interested in what surrounds you. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
