Owner description: 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 of the city, like flea markets, futuristic skyscrapers, vintage shops, secret courtyards and local beaches... Our guides are young, knowledgeable locals who were either born in Barcelona or have lived here for several years. We like to talk about the real experience of life in the city, modern politics, culture and stories. But most of all we like to have a fun relaxing day out on a bike with our new friends... you! We ride with a maximum of 8 people, offering a more personal experience, greater mobility and sustainability (as this way we don't contribute to the congestion of mass tourism). When you ride with us you'll never feel like just another tourist on the treadmill. Hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

This was such a great tour. The authenticity and level of information was brilliant! Our guide (Valerie) was spectacular! Small group tours are the way to go, and we would recommend this to anyone visiting Barcelona.

I have been around a lot, and so far this is the best kind of Bike tour I have ever been on!
Edu (edward our tour guide) was very helpful, full of knowledge and enthusiasm, he filled us with all the details around Barcelona as much as he can. and even though at the beginning, a 4 hour bike tour seemed like a lot to me, but turns out it was amazing! went through the old and narrow streets in Barcelona that carried its rich history, away from all the "commercial" very common sites.
Edward is just perfect in taking you back in time, into the mood!
Totally recommend this one ;)

Easy-going. Interesting. Enough time to admire things. Surprising stories. Great locations. Some of them quite dull in the first glance. But even more interesting to hear about. Nothing fancy and fluffy. Nothing fake. Real stories. Real places. Real, down to earth guide (we went with Edu). Time and money well spent. We had a privet tour for 15 riders and it was perfect. With less riders it's definitely even more cosy.

This was a great tour which took in parts of the city which we would not otherwise had visited and were really interesting. The tour groups are kept small, which means you hear what the guide says and can ask more questions if you like. I really loved le Born area and the non-touristy market. The length and pace of the tour was great. Thanks Edu.
