Reviewed 17 April 2012

My friend and I stumbled across the shop, had a chat and a quick go on the bikes and were sold. We hired them for 3 hours hours at 15 euros and embarked on our own whistle stop tour of the mountain, Olympic park, beach, Guadi cathedral and city. The bikes are great for getting up some of the hills and because we didn't get tired we definitely saw much more than we would have on normal bikes. We loved them so much we went back and got them again the next day to take up to the Guadi Park.
The guys at the shop are really helpful and helped us with where to go and how to get there, gave us maps and tips. We did not go on the organised tours with them but I would not think twice about it I went again. The really were very fun and made a very memorable part of our trip.

“The most fun we had in Barcelona”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

My fiancée and I did the city tour our first full day in Barcelona and loved it so much we immediately booked the Mont Juic tour for the next day. Both were right around 4 hours long and we would highly recommend them both!

BBB is definitely a smaller (and newer) operation than some of the other popular bike tour services like Fat Tire, but when we saw the giant crowds of tourists on those tours we were glad we went with BBB. We were able to go on both of our tours with just us and our fantastic guide, Salvatore (Salva), who had plenty of interesting information to share with us and was happy to stop and take photos for us or even divert from the tour route to show us things that piqued our curiosity.

Besides the fantastic sights that we saw, we were very impressed with the quality of the electric bikes. I especially appreciated the adjustable power assistance, which let me effortless pedal up the steep roads of Mont Juic on the highest setting, while getting some exercise on less demanding terrain while using the lowest setting.

Overall I would absolutely recommend Barcelona Battery Bikes to anyone looking for a great way to spend a day seeing the city, whether from the streets or atop Mount Juic, and we will certainly return whenever we are able to revisit Barcelona.

Reviewed 3 April 2012

We rented the battery bikes to visit Barcelona and it was the best way to visit the city without too much effort! It is funny and really easy to use. The staff was great, they recommanded some beautiful places to go and some nice restaurants too. The staff also speak french and english which is very helpful.
I would definitely recommand this experience

“great personalized tour of the city, perfect for the avid photographer”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Our tour with Salva was great because he knew the ins and outs of Barcelona, and had interesting facts to share at almost every intersection. We did the city tour the first day we were in Barcelona to get our bearings, and we had such a great time that we decided to go on the mountain tour the next day! Salva was an awesome guide who let us "choose our own adventure" at times, which was great because we are rock climbers and we got to see an outdoor climbing gym that was off the beaten path, something we couldn't have done in a gaggle of tourists.

I didn't really appreciate the power of the electric bikes until we were speeding up Montjuic without breaking any sweat. The views of the city from the mountain were spectacular, and Salva was great about letting us stop to take pictures whenever I had the urge (which was often). The olympic stadium was a cool attraction to see, and the views were great. Both the city and mountain tour had their own unique perspectives of beautiful Barcelona and I would recommend both. These tours are great for anyone who is looking for a more personalized tour, rather than a bike tour where you're 1 of 50 and you only stop when the tour guide says stop. Great way to spend a day (or two) in Barcelona!
