Know More about this tour

Meet your expert guide in central Barcelona, then strap on a helmet and hop onto your provided bike. After listening to a comprehensive safety briefing, pedal away along the city streets. The pace is leisurely and follows a safe route, allowing you to listen to your guide’s commentary and take in the sights as you cycle.
Make your first stop by St Mary of the Sea Cathedral (also known as Cathedral Santa Maria del Mar and Basilica Santa Maria del Maris) in the heart of the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic). Pose for photos by the striking façade and hear how it is renowned as one of the country’s finest examples of Catalan Gothic architecture.
Continue on to Parc de la Ciutadella, stopping along the way to see two streetlights designed by iconic modernist architect, Antoni Gaudi. Cruise along the idyllic, palm-lined promenades and pause to admire the colorful Arc de Triomf.
Next, pedal to The Monumental Bullring of Barcelona (Plaza de Toros Monumental de Barcelona or La Monumental). Snap photos of the breathtaking exterior, a mixture of Moorish and Byzantine design, and hear how the former bullring often hosts spectacular concerts and events.
Then, find yourself amid the modern-day sporting sites of the Olympic Village (Vila Olimpica) and Port Olympic, where you’ll learn about the urban redevelopment that took place in preparation for the 1992 Summer Olympics. You’ll also see El Cap de Barcelona, a surrealist sculpture created by American Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein for the Olympics.
Soak up the sea views as you traverse the labyrinthine streets of La Barceloneta. Discover how the neighborhood, once home to many of the city’s fishermen, was built up in the 18th century for the families whose homes were demolished to make room for the Ciutadella fortress.
Your tour then concludes near St Mary of the Sea Cathedral.

  • Vera was an absolute gem with her knowledge and recommendations for places to see, visit and eat as well as the history behind certain places. The bike tour itself was relatively easy --save for certain moments when we were passing by a market and that was really haphazard. I didn't think it was the best bike tour I've been on I went on bike tour at every country I travel to but if you just want to kill time and get a feel of Barcelona before you head any place of interest on your own, then I think this is a great way to start your Barcelona visit.

  • Nice cheap bike tour from Sandemans. Enthusiastic guide with a love of the city. However it did not visit the most interesting parts of the city. Nice to see the park and beach though. The company provided free ponchos as it was chucking down with rain.

  • Our tour guide, Yannis, was very entertaining and had good stories of the history and culture of Barcelona. There were plenty of breaks and stops in between for pictures. We give him a 5-star, but unfortunately, the bike rental shop we give a 1-star. First of all, their bike selection was poor with many in need of repair. After our tour, Yannis said there was a restroom to wash our hands yet when we entered, the lady said yes, just go upstairs, then the male with a beard didn't catch his name abruptly yelled, No!! The lady embarrassingly said, sorry, only for bikes. We were shocked as to the unprofessional attitude and poor customer service. Really liked the tour guide, Yannis, but hated the bike shop.

  • This was a amazingly relaxed and informative bike tour we did. Our tour guide Brandon did know a lot about the history and architecture of the places we went to, he did not rush anybody, took the time to explain things on the way and was also interested in the people who joined the tour.
    If you are planning to go/come to Barcelona I would highly recommend this excellent way to see a part of the city by bike.

  • We choose this tour to get some exercise and a feel for the city on our first day. It far surpassed our expectations. Our guide Vera was outstanding. We learned so much about the history and grander of the city.
    I encourage anyone who like to get exercise at a leisurely pace and learn about this wonderful city to take this tour.

  • Great tour with Jenny!
    From Arc de Triumf to Barceloneta, via Citadel Park and Poblenou, we had a great 3 hours ride. Jenny, our guide, told us interesting stories and facts about the places we have visited. Riding the bike in Barcelona is quite easy, even the city is full with tourist. If you like cycling, I do recommend to try it. Having Jenny as your guide, for sure it will be a tour to remember.

  • My daughter, Kinneret, and I had the most fantastic time on this bike tour with our lovely and knowledgeable guide, Fillipa. The bikes were a wonderful way to see so much of the city and enjoy the beautiful coastline, as well. It was also a comfortable way for Kinneret, who is 6 months pregnant, to travel, see the city and feel connected - something you don't feel on a bus. We meandered through the streets, parks and neighborhoods as Fillipa stopped often to engage us in interesting and historical stories, pointing out all kinds of buildings and sites, as well as answering our many questions. We could have never covered that much area in 3 hours by just walking and we would not have felt so enriched as we did with Fillipa as our guide! We would recommend this tour to anyone who loves the wind in their hair and the feeling of freedom that a bike gives you!
