  • 5 star ratingSimply excellent Highly recommend this tour for families with teens! We did a 2 hour tour and had a fantastic time. We were shown how to use the segways and then we set off for an informative trip around the park and beaches. Our tour guide was Rut and she was delightful (and very patient).

  • 5 star ratingPERFECTO E INMEJORABLE !!!!! El paseo de 2 horas fue magnifico, hay que destacar a nuestra guía Karine que es una persona encantadora que con su simpatía y sonrisa, nos hizo un tour de lo más ameno , como dijo mi hija "yo le daría una valoración de un 11" (sobre 10).

    El personal muy atento y el equipamiento estaba en muy buen estado.

  • 5 star ratingBest way to see Montjuïc!! Beautiful and historic Montjuïc is a tough walk, but Segways make it quick and fun. Do this on your first day in BCN to get a great over view of the city. Our guide Adrian was knowledgeable and and had wonderful advice for our stay in Barcelona.

We had no prior experience and after a 10 minuet guide we were soon speeding along the streets of Barcelona in total control of our new machines.

  • 5 star ratingExcellent way to explore Barcelona! We went on the Gaudi’s works tour (2.5 hours) and can’t recommend it enough!

    Adrian, our guide was excellent - very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful (especially with taking photos!).

    The tour covers a lot of the artistic work of Gaudi and we found it very interesting and well worth the trip. We went on a Sunday which was definitely advantageous as the streets were much quieter.
