  • 5 star ratingGreat way to see the sights. After attending to safety procedures, and checking on our capabilities, we took off flying thru cobbled streets. Our 90 minutes was over before we knew it. Our instructor/tour guide was fabulous, he was very knowledgeable and entertained us with stories and facts as we saw Gaudi architecture, historical gates and buildings. One of our highlights on our trip. Fabulous.

  • 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).

Then we followed her like a family of ducklings along pavements and cycle paths, across roads and through pedestrians, with everyone...
