  • 5 star ratingExcellent Tour! Cannot rate Barcelone Sun & Segway high enough, they kindly opened early and squeezed us in (our group of 15) after another company left us in the lerch. They went above and beyond and we are so grateful. Friendly staff that made us thoroughly enjoy our Segway tour.
