Beautiful tour that can be tailored to your wishes and your cycling experience: mainly through nature, beautiful views, but also along amusement park and church, through the residential areas. Nature via wide hiking trails or small rugged mountain bike trails whatever you wish. Juan is wonderfully relaxed and competent in everything: guiding cycling, explaining culture and history, but also many facts about normal Barcelona life. A bit of effort and no chatter is also good. Very good quality bicycles, even good saddles against saddle pain have been thought of (and we are critical as Dutch mountain bikers :-). Trip to do well thanks to the electricity. Done with family and even our teenagers liked it! Highly recommended if you want an active Barcelona experience after sightseeing, strolling and beach. We will definitely come back to Juan again because of a good experience. You can never find those nice paths in the forest yourself.

Wonderful experience, highly recommended. Knowledgeable friendly and observant tour guide Jules made this a special day for us.

Fantastic experience! Our guide Pablo was very friendly, knowledgeable and made our trip fun. Highly recommend

Christopher was an awesome guide. Learned a lot of history on Barcelano and the bike ride was fun!
