Owner description: Responsible Tourism - Authentic - With The Eyes Of The Locals Bounce Around Barcelona is a private initiative for making vacation more colorful and spicy. We do private unique tours under the flag of responsible tourism. Our principle is to show the city to the guests in a different way: small groups visiting several spots in the Barcelona Magic City that normally are hidden from the eyes of the tourists, to feel the city as we feel, to see the districts with the eyes of the locals.

We were planning a Barcelona city roundtrip during our holidays, when one of our friends recommended to try this bike tour with Bounce Around Barcelona. We did not really know what to expect at the first time, but already weeks before the trip Krisz (our tour guide) sent us a lot of information, while not uncovering all the details and "surprises". :)

The tour started with a friendly conversation where we put together the itinerary considering our wishes. He planned to skip some of the places we already visited to spend more time at other great places we didn't know at all. So, I can honestly say that the tour was really personalized.

During the tour he talked a lot about the history of Barcelona answered all of our questions. Told interesting stories about buildings, artists, architects, city people and Barcelona-life. Even though we learnt a lot about history and city life, it was never boring since he avoided the "classical tour guide style" - focused only on details that we were really interested in.

Cycling in the city is a great experience. It's safe, people do care each other and the tour itself is not exhausting at all. We always stopped if someone wanted to stop, we had a drink or grabbed some food if someone needed it. That's great that "refreshment stops" are included, but no spoilers, so I won't share more details. ;) Another great thing is that this tour is only about you and your friends. You don't have to spend time with other tourists you don't know.

Overall we really enjoyed this day (yep, it's no just 2-3 hours, it's an entire day from around 10am through 8pm). Krisz was an awesome tour guide, the places we visited were really great and the communication before and after the tour was perfect. It really worth the price, if you not only want to see the best areas in Barcelona, but learn a lot about them in a personalized, friendly way.

Fantasztikus élmény volt! Az unalmas és elcsépelt idegenvezetés helyett, Christől hatalmas élményt kaptunk! Izgalmas volt más nézőpontból és kifejezetten lendületesen, egy helyi ember szemüvegén át látni a várost! Aki Barcelonában jár, ki ne hagyja ezt az élményt! Köszönjük! Ajánlom mindenkinek!

It was a fantastic experience! Instead of the boring and tedious guided tour, we received a great experience from Chris! It was exciting from another point of view and very expressive through the local people glasses to see the city! Those who are in Barcelona do not miss this experience! Thank You! I recommend to everyone!

My relatives recommended us the Bounce Around Barcelona-Team, and my friend and I immediately booked a tour (gastro deluxe) for our second day, which was amazing! Even before arriving in Barcelona, we were in contact with Krisz, who gave us tips what we could do on our first day, he helped us in every possible way, he was very flexible and friendly.
The tour itself was incredibly exciting, fun, we got to know important facts about BCN in an interesting way, we tried local goods, we've seen beautiful sights, we've seen it all!
We can ONLY RECOMMEND the BAB-Team, we'll also definitely go on a tour again the next time we are in Barcelona.
Thank you for everything BAB-Team, special thanks to Krisz for all your help, tips, trust and time!
