We are proud to be able to offer the same great tour as pre-pandemic, but we have enhanced our cleaning procedures. All high-touch surfaces (handlebars, seats, etc.) are sanitized before and after each use, and groups are asked to socially distance whenever possible on tour.

This tour meets in the corner of Plaça Sant Jaume near the intersection Carrer del Call and Carrer de Sant Honorat near the Starbucks. Your guide will be standing next to a blue bike. The closest metro stations are Jaume I (L4) and Liceu (L3). Be sure to arrive 15 minutes prior to tour departure. Other cycle tours meet in this same plaza, so please confirm that you are with the Fat Tire Bike Tours group.
We will stop at a relaxing beach bar a little over half-way through the tour. You are welcome to purchase drinks, snacks and/or lunch, but the cost is not included in the price. This is a great opportunity to get to know the others in your group, ask your guide questions about what else to see and do in Barcelona, and relax with your toes in the sand.

Unfortunately, this four-hour bike tour won't give us enough time to see the inside of any of the museums and monuments that we'll point out on tour. We will, however, stop for a few minutes outside of each site so that your guide can provide you with the history of the landmark, allow you to take pictures, and depending on the stop, give you some free time to walk around. Our guides' mission to bring Barcelona to life, and they will provide you with all of the information you need to understand the history of these beautiful structures and the know-how to go back on your own to visit the ones that interest you most.
