We had booked a 1 hour tour for 10 people. Myself and 4 of my friends were the only ones who booked it, so essentially had a private tour. Natasha was amazing, really friendly and made us feel at ease and comfortable on the segway really quickly considering none of us had been on one before!! Her knowledge about Barcelona is incredible, she took some great pictures and videos of us on the segways and gave us some really good recommendations on restaurants and places to visit. Would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Barcelona!

Tolle Erfahrung! Super Tour, unterhaltsame und freundliche Guides, Fahrräder waren in gutem Zustand und es hatte für jede/n etwas. Schade, dass wir das Casa Batllo und Mila beim Vorbeifahren nicht besucht haben.
