An all-around Barcelona tour perfect for first timers


  1. Just like all our tours, the Half Day Barcelona City Tour is 100% private and fully customizable to meet each traveller’s expectations.
  2. Weather insurance: Barcelona has a fantastic weather all year round, however, in the unlikely case of rain at the time of your sidecar tour, you can try to reschedule if available, switch to a Van Tour if available (price difference refunded) or just cancel your booking (full refund).
  3. Cancellation policies100% refund for all cancellations with minimum 24h notice. Less than 24h notice or NO-SHOW: no refund. Entrance tickets to visit the inside of the attractions (if specifically requested) are not refundable.
  4. We run our tours all year long. During the winter season the temperatures drop but the weather is mostly sunny and the sidecar motorcycles are equipped with windshields, blankets and windbreakers so you will be perfectly comfortable (warm clothing required).
  5. The visits to the historical landmarks are only on the exterior. Our aim is to give you a broad and deep overview of the city whilst experiencing the authentic local lifestyle. After the tour, you will be ready to explore further on your own, and visit the interior of your favorite landmarks with the proper wealth of information to make the most of it.
  6. The half day tour includes a number of short stops all around the city, however, if you wish for longer stops (to visit museums, art galleries, shopping, walking or just to sip a cocktail along the way…) you should book a Full Day Barcelona Tour.Bar
