    Just a lovely way to spend the day. Our guide Bea, was delightful, informative with a sly wit. It was great to learn about the city history and well as gain geographical markers for when we explored the city on our own. Enjoyed meeting our fellow riders who were from all over, Scotland, Canada, Rhode Island. Would highly recommend- and would do so as early in the trip as possible.

    Our tour guide was Kieran. He’s from Ireland and has been living in Barcelona for four months then. When we started the tour I was fairly doubtful about the guide as he was neither from the city nor experienced. But to my pleasant surprise he was very good. He was very interactive and pretty good insight into the history of places. Barcelona is one of the best places to cycle. The city has laid dedicated lanes for cycling. It is a beautiful experience to cycle in Barcelona. Felt a deep connection with the city as you pedal through the narrow streets and arriving at the destinations.
