This tour is a MUST. Because it's a private tour, our guide (Florent - who was AMAZING) personalized the tour to show us both highlights and areas off the beaten path. He was incredibly knowledgeable so he was able to tell us all types of things about history, the various attractions, etc - literally everything you want in a local guide. We did the 2-hour tour because we had lunch reservations, but if we did it again I would do a 4-hour tour. Also, the bamboo bikes have an electric function which makes them super easy for all levels of experience. Additionally, the area is almost all flat and you are in dedicated bike lanes for almost the whole thing. It's a great way to get to know Barcelona and he also gave us recommendations for other tours (not his own) based on our interests. 11/10 would absolutely do again.

The tour was so fun! It was better to see the city in e-scooter rather than walking. Lucas (our guide) was very friendly and accommodating. He made sure we are safe all the time and even gave us good restaurant recommendations. We booked a shared tour but we were the only ones at the time so it felt like a private tour to us. Highly recommend this tour especially to those up for some cool e-scooter experience.

To do absolutely as soon as you arrive to discover the different districts of the city. We all loved it and the guide was at the top!

Flo was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and warm. Great way to see the city and get a background to Barcelona.

Great guide, good gear and nice tour around the port area
