The best way to discover Barcelona ! Our first day began with this fun and amazing sidecar tour. Not only did we discovered the main attractions but we got a complete history class with our guide Quim who knows this city like no one else. It helped us to walk all around Barcelona afterwards since we could understand the “barrios”, which made us discover even more.
Secure and so much fun !!! A unique experience ! As for our guide: many many thanks to Quim, the best guide ever ! Thank you for that fun day ! We chose the 3 hour-tour and it could have lasted all day so much we had the time of our life. I would recommend it to everyone.

My daughter who is 23 and I (over 60) visited Barcelona for a week. I do in-depth research and planning for every trip so by the end of the week when we had scheduled our-tour I thought we had seen and discovered a great deal of the city. Our guide acknowledged that we had certainly seen a lot and then proceeded to take us on a 4 hour tour that was new, exciting and informative. Going on this tour ( which I consider the best booking choice I made) would be fun at the beginning of a vacation so you could get a great overview, but if you want to accomplish the regular tourist sites on your own this is a fabulous way to learn about the city from an expert who goes beyond the usual. I had been concerned about my comfort level in a sidecar due to arthritis but it was easy and smooth. Book this it’s worth it. We loved it.

Great way to see and learn about Barcelona! Easy to book online with prompt & informative email communication. Timing and content of tour/sights was exactly as described. Our guide, Peter, spoke excellent English, was very knowledgeable, and had a delightful personality. We had the bonus of a second guide, Kim, who was training and who was also wonderful. The van itself is very comfortable with huge windows all the way around the vehicle so there is no bad seat. There were stops at key places for photos and for learning more about the most interesting landmarks. I highly recommend Brightside and this tour!

We just got back from a fabulous trip to Barcelona and we did both the Sidecar Tour and the Tapas Tour and it was amazing! The sidecar tour is the best way to get around and see the City. Our guides were a lot of fun and were very knowledgeable! The tapas tour was a lot of fun and Matthieu showed us many different ways to enjoy the food of Barcelona. I highly recommend this tour company! Thank you for making Barcelona an even better experience!

Convenient, unique and fun means of orienting oneself to Barcelona and its variety of neighborhooods. The sidecar is charming and an attraction in and of itself, gleaning glances and admiration from many passersby. We were picked up from our apartment exactly on schedule by our wonderful guide Joao who tailored the tour to our personal interests. He provided a general history of barcelona and described the political and social influences affecting its expansion over the centuries. Joao also provided us with restaurant and activity recommendations (beyond the obvious!) throughout the tour. We highly recommend this tour!!! Book immediately!!!!

The best way to see the hghlights of Barcelona and drive up to Alella. Amazing guide, amazing view and amazing wines. I would recommend this to everyone! Many thanks for this experience!
