Reviews and Testimonials
Read in our reviews below what our previous guests have enjoyed about their cycling experiences with Bicilona Tours.
“Excellent day out with the gents from Bicilona Tours. We escaped the busy metropolis of Barcelona and took in magnificent views while climbing to Tibidabo. I was further rewarded with a beach cruise to Montgat, which also offered wonderful views along the coast and back to Barcelona. For any keen cyclists, especially traveling solo, their guidance and local knowledge was outstanding.”
“This was a very enjoyable trip alongside Barcelona’s beaches using the mass of very safe cycle routes to a lunch stop about 12 km along the coast. Our host Kat was excellent and knowledgeable, and helped make it an excellent day out. Definitely recommended”
"We loved it! There’s so much to see in Barcelona it’s easy to not think about going outside the city. But take the time to go up the coast a little and you won’t be disappointed. This bike tour does just that. Great bikes; fun, knowledgable guides; and spectacular views. The only problem – you might not want to go back to the city at all! Highly recommended."
"Amazing day! so nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and to actually experience what Catalunya is like by cycling out to a really quiet beach and then stopping for food in a family run Catalan beach cafe. The tour guides 'Kat and Nico' are absolutely brilliant and make every part of the tour seem effortless! Definitely should be on everyones to do list! Thanks again guys!"
"You think Barcelona is a great place to visit? Wait until you get on one of these trips. I was really surprised how much more there is to see and visit beside the city itself. Took 2 trips during my holiday. The first one, along the coastline was pretty relaxing. I was astonished with how many calm places for sunbathing you can find not far from the center. I would highly recommend that trip for families. The second one was the Tibidabo Callenge and man... it was exhausting!!! But never felt better in my life when we got to the top of that hill. It was totally worth it - the road, the view, the downhill - everything was really amazing. I highly recommend Bicilona tours and I'll surely come back and try the other ones they have - nice service, 100% professional - it was a pleasure.
"I was recommended Bicilona Tours from a Friend who lives in Barcelona, having spoken to other Bike Hire and Tours in BCN via email/ messenger, Nico and Kat were so easy, quick in communicating, helpful and straight to point, (compared the rest, who weren't) Before I had even arrived to Barcelona, a couple days beforehand, I spoke to them via Whatsapp and then spoke over the phone, about what I wanted from the trip. (a keen road biker, wanting to make sure I could use my cleats/shoes and what bikes they have) Nico was mega helpful and ensured they could match everything I was after. They suggested Sitges the first day, a great ride out of the city, seeing the top sights, alongside a 10km coastline, up and over the hills - super nice ride and nowhere near as threating as the U.K. with traffic or cars etc, so much fun and the views where spot on! when we arrived into Sitges we had the most amazing Tapas lunch by the sea, with a short ride back via Train into BCN. The following day was the ride to Tibidabo, another ride highly recommended, the ride itself was great, we left the city via a different route and again saw many sights coming out of the city, heading into the few towns outside with a food stop before the climb upto Tibidabo (12km of up hill) nothing too harsh, and no rush either, was thoroughly enjoyed and the views from the top are spectacular! the ride down into BCN to the beach was awesome! I came away from both days feeling amazing! ( Thank you again!) Kat & Nico have clearly put a lot of thought into the routes, Highly commend these two, doing a fantastic job! 100% go with Bicilona Tours."
“Bicilona Tours was recommended to me by one of my friends. He really enjoyed the tour and suggested that my friend and I book one when we visit Barcelona. The tour did not disappoint. We rode all along Barcelona's scenic beaches and saw parts of Catalonia which we never would have experienced if not for this tour. We were even able to stop off for a cold refreshment at a small cafe on the beach. The tour guides were both really lovely and taught us a lot about Barcelona's/Catalonia's history. This bike tour was definitely the highlight of my Barcelona visit.”
"Via a google search 'cycle tour around Barcelona' we ended up at Bicilona. After an enthusiastic reception by the owners (Cat & Nico) we got comfortable bikes (fixies) and instructions. After 15 minutes we were already outside the hustle and bustle towards the north of Barcelona (Badalona). Made various stops along the way and got an explanation about culture and history. Excellent experience. Next time we will go for a custom daytrip!"
