Steel Donkey Bike Tours of Barcelona

My second day in Barcelona started with an awesome morning bike tour of the city. I was immediately drawn to Steel Donkey Bike Tours because they are not your typical city bike tour. They are quiet unique bike tours that let you discover a different side of Barcelona, the one you don’t find in the guide books. Every tour differs from the next one, so you never know what sort of surprise is waiting for you. Another great part of this tour is that the group is always small and intimate which makes for a much better tour altogether.

We actually got to sample some roasted nuts, and let me tell you they definitely taste pretty special and nothing like your store bought nuts

  1. Beautiful images! I’m jealous! I was looking for images of La Sagrada Familia. Did you get any? My husband and I plan to visit Barcelona in the near future! I have this thing for that cathedral!

    • yes I posted one just recently from one of my hotels. I was on a scheduled press trip so I didn’t have free time to visit unfortunately on this trip, but will go next time for sure
