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.
