LivTours Private Bicycle Tour of Barcelona with Cava starts in front of the palace-like main post office of Barcelona. Before saddling up in a nearby bike shop, your private guide will take you inside to admire the stunning stained glass ceiling of this 1920s building.
Once you are all set on your bike, your private local guide will ride with you a short distance to see a Roy Lichtenstein sculpture and a large golden smiling lobster of Miquel Barcelo before exploring the glamorous Inner Harbor with all the high-end yachts. As you glide past the Inner Harbor, your guide will stop to share with you the amazing views and the amusing anecdotes behind a harbor created in the 1700s. You will ride towards the end of the Barceloneta neighborhood where it meets the sea where you will stop to savor a glass of ice-cold cava, Spain’s sparkling white wine, before continuing on your panoramic tour.
Riding along the boardwalk with the wind in your hair and the Mediterranean at your side, your guide will take you to explore the Olympic Port and Village. You will gain an understanding of the massive urban changes the city completed for the ‘92 Olympics and see why Barcelona is considered a global forerunner in urban planning. Formerly the city’s main industrial area, it is now filled with parks, modern housing, restaurants, outstanding beaches with pristine waters.
After exploring the Olympic Port and Village your private guide will take you along one of the most peaceful tree-lined streets in the city to discover the wonders of the Parc de la Ciutadella. This elegant area was once the fairgrounds for the 1888 Universal Exhibition and is now a much-used green space in the heart of the city. As you ride through the lush park, you will make your way with your private guide to the majestic Arc de Triomf built in the early 1880s as the main entranceway to the 1888 Universal Exposition. Nowadays this area is full of locals rollerblading through obstacle courses, street performers, and locals enjoying the start of their evening.
The impressive Mercat del Born – built in the 1860s, this was the largest covered market in Europe until the 1970s. Serving as the wholesale fruit and vegetable market for the city. Slated to become the central library for the city, plans were scuppered when they discovered a world of ruins, some dating back to Roman times underneath it. Built on top of ruins from the extensive damage caused during the War of Succession, this space serves as a cultural center and museum.
The luxury of having a private tour is not to be rushed and delve deeper into the areas that interest you the most. Your guide will make sure you have plenty of time to take photos, ask questions and if there is a particular area that interests you more than others, do not hesitate to let them know!

Highlight of our stay in Barcelonoa
"If you want to do something just a little different (and a whole lot of fun), book this tour! It was a great family experience (kids aged 12 and 13) and not too stressful or tiring for any of us. The guide Thomas was really great and connected with the kids right from the start. Thanks, LivSpain, for a great afternoon! "

We had a blast on this tour
"This tour was the most fun!!!!!! Going around on a bike makes it so much easier to see more things than walking would. The confusion and traffic was at a minium because the tour was in the late afternoon. We got some fantastic pictures on the boardwalk at twilight and had fun tasting the cava too!! A really fun tour!!!!"

Excellent small group tour
"My wife was in Barcelona for a convention so I decided to take LivSpain's bicycle tour to pass the time. It was quite fun and a great way to see the city highlights. Our guide, Nancy, was very knowledgeable about the city's history and culture and set a relaxed pace so that no one in our group was left behind or stressed. We all got lots of great pictures and ended up spending time together after the tour was over. Highly recommend!"
