“BrightSide - The Ultimate Way to See Barcelona!”
Reviewed 5 October 2010

I just returned from a 2 week Mediterranean cruise and without a doubt, the highlight was the evening tour of Barcelona I enjoyed with Matthias from BrightSide. I was picked up promptly at my hotel and we took off for a completely safe and enjoyable look at this lively, colorful city. I had a few locations I definitely wanted to view at night and Matthias was totally accommodating, fitting my requests into an itinerary that covered Barcelona from the sea to a beautiful look at numerous buildings and plazas. Matthias was very knowledgable about all the sites and history and we had a fun conversation going the entire evening.
I highly recommend this tour for anyone of any age. Whenever I can get back to Barcelona, I will not hesitate to book an even longer daylight tour with BrightSide - this company deserves to succeed for such a novel and thoroughly awesome way to experience a city. Don't hesitate - give your vacation a great highlight that's such a kick. Reactions from passersby and friends at home when you return make it even better!

“Awesome way to see the city”
Reviewed 4 October 2010

My wife and I did a half-day Barceloooona tour with Matthias, and it was an amazing experience. We booked online only a day in advance, but got an immediate response and the next day in the morning Matthias was waiting outside our hotel. The tour is loads of fun - great and unique way to get an overview of the city, explore the parts of town you normally wouldn't get to see and zip through little side-roads to avoid the congested roads.
I can definitely recommend this!

“Best way to start visit”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

We did the night tour. Being our first time it was perfect. We were able to see the city at night lit up on the open air tour. Our guide was great and very informative and knowleable. Would not hesitate to book again or to recommend.

“A great way for couples to see Barcelona.”
Reviewed 2 October 2010

Just spent 5 hours on a Ural sidecar w/ Matthieu (sp) - many thanks for a great day and a great way for my wife and I to see Barcelona. The bike is very comfortable (even sitting on the back seat behind the driver!) and the open air and microphones really give a great impression of the city.
