This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! It was a ton of fun, and gave us a really good picture and understanding of the city. Our tour guide, Alessandro, was very knowledgable, spoke perfect english and was fun to hang out with for the day. The website was easy to use, and the company was great to communicate with when planning the tour. Thanks Brightside Tours!

First off - Tarek is the best tour guide we have ever had and we have done many tours all over Europe. He arrived on time and greeted us in the lobby of our hotel, straight off the bat you could tell this guy was super nice! He gave us a short but very informative history lesson of the different neighbourhoods of Barcelona just before we set off on the bike! He then completely tailored our tour to suit our tastes. He then fitted our helmets, made sure our head sets were working and then we were off! The sun was shining all day and every corner we turned he had something to tell us about certain buildings etc. We couldn't get over the wealth of knowledge this guy had about BCN, in every neighbour hood we went through he knew somebody there and always gave them a wave or a shout, so you know he is a great people person. Not only did he tell/ask us about BCN but also asked about ourselves which felt very genuine! He let us stop to get cold beers before we drove up to the top of Barcelona to admire the view and drink them! If you go on this tour, request Tarek if available. Super nice genuine guy who clearly loves and knows everything about the city! He even gave use great suggestions of where to go clubbing (myself and my girlfriend are in our 20's) and his suggestions were fantastic! Thanks Tarek!!

Secondly - This is the best tour we have ever done, everything else we have done just doesn't compare. The bike is super comfortable for a 3.5hour tour! Every neighbour hood we seen was super interesting and Tarek had an answer for all of our questions! This is worth every penny, money well spent! We will be back in BCN next year and we will be doing it again but obviously for different areas!

THANKS TAREK!!! THANKS BRIGHTSIDE!!

My family went on a brightside tour yesterday. The guides could not have been nicer or more friendly. Riding on the back of side of a motorcycle is a riveting and great way to see the city. Would 10/10 recommend.

We took the full day sidecar tour (mother and 2 adult children) with Alessandro and Quim as our guides and had such a great time. They were both excellent, well informed and friendly guides who gave us a memorable day. We saw all the major attractions which gave us a great taste of Barcelona. Even their lunch recommendation (Bethlem) was excellent.

One of the best tours that we have ever done.

Thank you BrightSide tours and Alessandro for a truly memorable and educational experience. Alessandro is great safe driver and very knowledgeable about the entire city and all the sites we visited. This was the first thing we did once we arrived in Barcelona and it really gave us a great understanding of how the city is laid out. We heard about this tour through a friend and would highly recommend it. Loved the old school motorbike and sidecar. Thank you.
