“Great way to see Barcelona!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

My husband and I had an awesome day with our guide Matthew, cruising around Barcelona. This is our 3rd time to this great city and we've never seen it like this! The side car was super comfortable and so much fun! I was surprised when my husband and I switched seats that the seat on the back of the motorcycle was really comfortable as well.... and you're not right up against your guide. :) Matthew had a ton of knowledge about Barcelona, architecture, great restaurants, bars, history, etc. We went at the pace we wanted... it felt spontaneous, highly customized to our interests and ultra enjoyable. We highly recommend this tour, it's worth every euro!

“Great way to see a great city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

If you have not been to Barcelona and want to have an over the top look around, jump on a bike or in a side car with these folks. They know their city, restaurants and night spots! Furthermore, you be photographed more than your camera will be out. Great time, fun guides, do it!

“3Hour Must Do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

My husband was a bit apprehensive about this tour, but I insisted. We met Peter at our hotel, he went over our tour mapping out our journey in Barcelona, gave us the helmut sand microphones and off we went. We both felt completely safe, Peter was an excellent driver and guide. We could have never covered the area by ourselves and in comfort. It was also exciting as we are seniors and riding this motorcycle with side car was a great experience. We would do it again. Peter took a few pictures of us on the cycle, which we are making our into our Christmas card this year. Thank you again. Great tour. Mary Ann n Tom

“Awesome Way to see Barcelona!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Our family of 5 (2 adults and three kids 22, 21 and 19) went on a sidecar tour and absolutely loved it! We had a day in Barcelona before taking a cruise around the Mediterranean, and our day in Barcelona was one of the highlights. The guides, Joao, Peter and Matthew, were all awesome! It is something special to be out in the open (on the side car or on the back) and experience the city while hearing the guides talk about sites, history, architecture, etc. The guides have microphones and the passengers have an earpiece to be able to hear the commentary about the sites. Joao, Peter and Matthew were all extremely personable and wanted us to experience their great city and feel the excitement of the city, as they do. We could not have had a better day in Barcelona! We highly recommend this tour!!!

“Absolutely loved it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

We booked this tour 6 months in advance and were really looking forward to it. It surpassed our expectations in every way. Peter spoke excellent English and was a fabulous ambassador for Barcelona. Taking the Barceloona tour in the morning was a "Perfect 10". The streets were quiet so we could really enjoy the sights. Peter mapped out a route based on our interests and areas we had already visited. It was spectacular! He also gave us really good tips on other areas to visit and places to eat. When our tour was over we were able to choose to be dropped in our favorite area of Born, where we spent the rest of the day following up on several of his suggestions. A great restaurant, wine bar and ice cream shop. Thank you Peter and Sidecar tours! It has been the highlight of our three week trip.
