Very fun and educational tour

Joe was very knowledgeable and very adaptable to small changes we did to our tour. Motorcycle tour is very fun and can get through places a car wouldn’t be able to.
BEST tour I've ever done in any city!
MelissaR2012, 31-05-2022
I've traveled to many cities and taken many tours. This was hands down the best tour experience myself and my family (husband and two kids aged 11 and 13) have ever experienced. Joao and Allesandro spent 8 hours with us over the course of two days showing us all the highlights of Barcelona (the must-see attractions) but also parts of the city most tourists never get to experience. Off the beaten path spots, local neighborhoods, all on a super fun way to get around the city. We felt absolutely safe the whole time, and the tour was completely customizable. As Joao put it, riding the motorcycles makes you feel and see the city in an entirely different way. You will not be disappointed in this experience - trust me! And my kids LOVED it.
The best tour in Barcelona

We had such a great time in Barcelona! The tour was really interesting and it was so fun going around in the sidecar of this amazing motorcycle. The helmets were equipped with a headset and a microphone so we didn't miss a thing and we could also ask as many questions as we wanted.

I totally recommend it and we would definitely do it again.
An amazing day in Barcelona!

Our guide and driver for the day, Alessandro, met us outside of the cruise terminal right on time, and after introducing himself, pulled out a map and gave us an overview of what we would see and do on our tour. Next, Alessandro fitted us with our helmets, tested the wireless headsets, and since it was a chilly morning, pulled out a wool blanket for my wife (who had the sidecar seat). With everything in order, we were off!

The tour route was a very thorough drive through the entire city, stopping along the way for pictures and commentary. We were given the option of going inside Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell – we decided to only go inside Sagrada Familia (which is amazing) so that we had more time to spend touring the city.

A few of the many highlights of our day –

• Alessandro was always the slowest driver, usually taking side streets, and often pulling over to allow faster cars to pass. Not only did this make us feel safe but allowed us to soak in all of the sights.
• Alessandro made frequent stops for us to stretch our legs and take pictures. One stop was at an overlook high above Barcelona, and Alessandro had a small bottle of sparkling white wine for us to enjoy.
• Throughout the day, we were stopped by a lot of folks on the street for pictures of the sidecar – that was fun!
• For lunch, Alessandro gave us several different options based on what we liked and didn’t like, and then dropped us off at a very nice Tapas restaurant. A great choice with good food!
• Because we were on a motorcycle sidecar, parking was never a problem. Alessandro was able to park as close as possible to Sagrada Familia, right at the front door of the restaurant, and in the middle of the Gothic quarter for our walking tour.
• Our tour ended in the Gothic quarter, and Alessandro offered to either drive us back to the cruise terminal or let us walk. We chose to walk – after being on a motorcycle for 8+ hours, we needed to stretch our legs. Alessandro gave us great directions, and we had a nice walk along the marinas.

Overall, an amazing day. Can’t say enough about Alessandro – he was very knowledgeable as a tour guide, very courteous, extremely helpful (he helped us with a little shopping), and gave us a great day in Barcelona. Thanks Alessandro!
Amazing tour- amazing day!

We are pretty much speechless about how fabulous this day has been. Every single thing, from pick up to drop off was perfect. The schedule allowed us plenty of time to see Sagrada Familia and Park Guell as well as stops at all other landmarks and monuments. We feel like there is no better way to become acquainted with this charming city. Our guide was beyond knowledgeable and happy to share his keen insights about his town. Thank you for introducing us to one of your favorite Bodegas for lunch! The octopus was the best we have ever had. And the cava on the mountain- well that just topped it off.

Do not hesitate to take this tour or any tour with Brightside. Worth every cent! Do dress warmly and in layers!
