Steel Donkeys are the first and only alternative bike rides of Barcelona. We're not about dry historic facts and the same daily routines that characterise other mass market bike tours. We're about getting on a bike and exploring the hidden corners of the city, like flea markets, futuristic skyscrapers, vintage shops, secret courtyards and local beaches... Our guides are young, knowledgeable locals who were either born in Barcelona or have lived here for several years. We like to talk about the real experience of life in the city, modern politics, culture and stories. But most of all we like to have a fun relaxing day out on a bike with our new friends... you! We ride with a maximum of 8 people, offering a more personal experience, greater mobility and sustainability (as this way we don't contribute to the congestion of mass tourism). When you ride with us you'll never feel like just another tourist on the treadmill. Hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

We chose steel donkey as our method of touring around Barcelona as it advertised itself as something a bit different and more private than choosing one of the main stream bike tours- it did not disappoint. The weather unfortunately was a bit wet and windy,...More

I wish I could review the actual service (we had booked a private tour), but as our guide never showed up, there's not much more to say than this.More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local

Not sure. I prefer to ride alone. We went on a tour with 10 friends. Had a ball!
