Steel Donkeys are the first and only alternative bike rides of Barcelona. We're not about dry historic facts and the same daily routines that characterise other mass market bike tours. We're about getting on a bike and exploring the hidden corners...more

We met Nadim outside the shop and immediately felt like this was someone we could spend a few hours with. A brilliant blend of insight into the sights, the sounds and the theory of Barcelona. We visited some top traditional but fantastic eateries and drinkeries...More

We did a bike tour with Maria today and it was fantastic. She took us to some of the less-touristy places and had great little stories and fun facts about the places we went. She also made recommendations for other things to see.

Really fun, informative trip around some of the more off the beaten track areas of Barcelona as well as the main hotspots. Tour guide Edu's English impeccable. And some vegan recommendations to boot.

We had a great e-bike tour with Steel Donkey. Our guide spoke great English (he had both lived and studied in the states and Australia) so our ability to communicate with each other was easy. Unless everyone in your party is an avid cyclist or...More

Edu's English was excellent and he gave us some interesting tidbits that we likely would not have learned elsewhere. The cycling was not challenging other than a few parts dealing with loads of oblivious pedestrians.

With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this

under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
