      Reservations are required for every tour we offer except our Barcelona City Bike Tour. We cannot guarantee spots for walk-ups therefore we do strongly recommend reservations, especially in the summer months.

    • Expand/Collapse What happens if it rains?

      All of our tours operate rain or shine, and we have rain ponchos available in our office for purchase (fully refunded if not used). 

    • Expand/Collapse How many minutes prior to tour time should I meet?

      We ask that all guests arrive no later than 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.

    • Expand/Collapse Are bike tours appropriate for children?

      We welcome kids of all ages on our standard city tours. We have several kid bikes in a couple of different sizes, as well as adult bikes equipped with child seats and child trailers and we have plenty of kid-sized helmets, so we can pretty much accommodate anyone and everyone. We also have available child tandem attachments for those kids who are too big for the child seats and trailers, but still a bit too young to ride their own bikes through the city.

      The cost of the child tandem attachment is the same as the discounted "kid" price for children ages 12 and under. There is no charge for the use of our child seats, child trailers and helmets.

      Our Montjuïc E-Bike tour is not recommended for children younger than 12-years-old.

    • Expand/Collapse Are helmets provided?

      Helmets are optional for all of our tours, but we have them in sizes for all ages.  Please let us know if you think you’d like to reserve some for your tour.

    • Expand/Collapse I haven't ridden a bike in years/is Barcelona difficult to bike in?

      While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount. Barcelona is a very bike-friendly city and cars are used to sharing the road with cyclists and pedestrians.

      The areas we bike in is very flat, and our tours follow carefully selected bike-friendly routes. On our Montjuïc Tour we use electric bikes which are especially designed to help you cover more ground and go uphill with less effort than a regular bike.
