    Fabulous tour! Highly recommend! Misha was an excellent guide with much knowledge on history, art, recommendations of this lovely city. Our 1st tour was Berlin, 2nd Barcelona and we loved both. Will definitely look for them in other places.

    The guide was so nice and we had a great time, I discovered some places even though it was my second time in Barcelona. However we didn’t do everything that was on the list. But it was great though!

    We loved this tour! It allowed us to visit without a map and the Kyra took us to so many places and explained the culture and history--there was no way we could have appreciated the city or gotten as much done on our own. As long as you are comfortable on a bike, there were lots of stops and milling around, so endurance on the bike was not an issue. You can attach your water bottle to the back of the bike. We met Kyra at 1030am at the Starbucks at Placa de Sant Jaume. There is a grocery store near this Starbucks where you can buy water if you want. My favorite part of the tour was stopping by the Parc de Ciutadella. There was a guy who had sunflower seeds and was calling the green parrots from the trees. Another guy had a wand and was making the hugest soap bubbles we'd ever seen. There was another local guy who selling homemade samosas for two euros. Bring cash so you can get this if he is there. We roamed on our own for 20 minutes here. Kyra was flexible on where to go, and she took us to the beach and pier area. She encouraged questions and had a good sense of humor. We needed to use the restroom and Kyra was understanding and knew where to find restrooms in Barcelona. The 12-year old's favorite part was riding bikes in the pier area. The college kids liked Kyra's cultural and historical explanations. They said their favorites spots were the beach, the Roman columns, and the Parc de Ciutadella. We all thought this was one of the favorite parts of our whole holiday.

    We had a fantastic tour by Kyra in December. She guided us around all the best spots and shared all the most interesting facts! We didn’t feel overwhelmed with information but she was super engaging and full of energy! She gave us time to explore the different locations and was easy going with itinerary, showing us the not so touristy spots and where she likes to hang out as a local! At the end she shared her recommendations setting us up well for the rest of the trip. Highly recommend booking with Kyra to get the best version of Barcelona!

    What a fantastic tour, our guide was extremely knowledgable and great fun! The bikes are easy to use, and the cycle was predominantly on flat surface while capturing many of the major attractions. Thank you so much Kyra!
