Booked a sidecar tour for something a bit different from the norm. My guide was lovely and showed me great sights and had some brilliant tips on what's best to see. Really enjoyed. Make sure you wrap up in the winter months. A bit over priced

We spent a morning travelling around Barcelona with Giorgio, who was a great guide and a lot of fun to spend time with. He catered our morning to what we wanted to see but also made some great suggestions. The ride is very easy and laid back and perfectly suitable for anyone that hasn't been on the back of a... More

We had a wonderful time with this tour. It was a unique way to see Barcelona at night. We did the tour our first night in town and it gave us a good sense of the various monuments, sites, areas and attractions so we could decide what we wanted to spend more time seeing later. Highly recommend!

We did a Barcelona side-car tour with Brightside. Kim and Peter were our guides. They were prompt in picking us up from the apartment where we were staying, spoke to us about what we had already seen on our own to craft an itinerary and gave us a very nice tour of Barcelona. They have a nice communication setup for... More

This tour was amazing! I don't even know where to begin. Our tour guide Matias was so friendly and informative. We toured the city on the sidecar and tapas tour and loved every single minute of it. The side care experience alone was very unique and extremely comfortable. They even give you a blanket so you stay warm! The headsets... More

My family did an afternoon van tour of the city that gave us a good understanding of the history of Barcelona and an appreciation for the different sections of the city. Our guide asked what we had already seen and then developed an itinerary that provided an excellent compliment so we didn't see the same things over. It brought us... More

I had many expectations and unfortunately i ended very disappointed. The trip is not cheap at all (75 € for 3 hours), and it felt like the guide is an average guy from the street. No added value... he was really nice, but definitely not a certified tour guide that can tell you the story of Barcelona in interesting, well... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
