Feed Your Hunger For Adventure With an Alternative Tour of Barcelona
Posted: Jun 15, 2016
Whether you’ve visited Barcelona before or are gearing up for your first trip, it’s always exciting to find a new way to explore the city. If you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous than following behind a tour guide like a sheep, then consider my suggestions for alternative tours of Barcelona.
Sidecar Tours for Foodies
Try something completely different with a tour of Barcelona’s best sites combined with some of the city’s best tapas bars, all from the comfort of a motorbike sidecar! The sidecar holds two people and the guide (who is also the motorbike driver) will pick you up from your hotel before whisking you around an evening tour of Barcelona. You’ll take in everything from beaches to the famous Sagrada Família before stopping off to sample some great local tapas at two different locations.
Explore the City in a Vintage Car
Travel in style around Barcelona with a tour in a beautiful vintage car thanks to Barcelona Vintage Dream. Choose from cars including the Rolls Royce Phantom III from 1937 and the Hispano T49 from 1929, then sit back and relax with the top down as your guide/driver takes you around the sights.
Discover Barcelona by Rickshaw
Fresh air and uninterrupted views are what are promised on the Funky Cycle rickshaw tour. Up to three people can fit in the comfortable rickshaws while a guide/driver pedals you through the city and delivers a tour in a choice of European languages. The benefit of the rickshaw is that it can travel in pedestrian areas, as well as roads, so it can deliver you to some of the less accessible sights in the city.
Ride Along Vespa Tours
Vespa hire company Vesping offer you the chance to enjoy the freedom and exhilaration of riding a Vespa around Barcelona while benefitting from the knowledge of one of their team of Vespa tour guides. Ride around the city from the Sagrada Família and Tibidabos to the old town, then on to the city’s beautiful beaches in an exciting four-hour tour.
