Our gide Sara was fabulous! My daughter and I were very happy with our tour today. We recommend this tour, we saw all Barcelona beaches, Barceloneta area and old port of the city. Everything was well explained and riding bikes was very fun. We look forward to going to Barcelona all over again.

The bike tour was amazing! We've seen all the top spots with a great explanation from our guide. Too bad we had bad weather so we couldn't stop for a drink at the beach. All in all very beautiful and informative.
