Barcelona Urban Adventures
Day tours, with a local
Prepare to be surprised every day! Barcelona is a melting pot of traditional Catalan and international trends, and thus boasts a very dynamic and vibrant day-to-day life. It's a truly passionate, colourful, lively and welcoming city just begging to be explored. With Barcelona Urban Adventures you'll get to experience the real heart and soul of Barcelona on our uniquely designed Barcelona tours.
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city that combines the past, present and future. it is one of the finest cities in Europe, elegantly embodying architecture of all styles and centuries. Apart from having one of the best preserved Gothic style city centres, the city is full of marvellous buildings, with Gaudí and other modernistas bringing together the richest selection of Art Nouveau buildings in Europe. Gaudi‘s Sagrada Familia and the multicoloured Torre Agbar are two fine examples from both eras. World class museums display everything from impressive Romanesque frescos and the joy of Joan Miró, through to gold from pre-Columbian America and the first works of Picasso.
Whilst Barcelona is full of treasures in art and architecture, many prefer to develop their talents differently, such as the young people skating the squares and streets of the city, or those in the kitchen. It seems that in Barcelona it’s always time to have lunch or dinner and the traditional and contemporary Catalan cuisine, considered one of the best in the world, offers a large amount of culinary sensations. Chef Ferran Adriá is considered one of the world's best chefs and tops the European Restaurant Ranking. His restaurant 'El Bulli' has three Michelin stars and is regarded as one of the best restaurants in the world.
Here at Barcelona Urban Adventures, we want you to experience the real energy of day-to-day life in Barcelona. Be sure to check out some of our Barcelona tours for some truly great travel adventures!

15 Oct 2013 Initially I was disappointed to have a German guide in Barcelona, but Mathias had lived there for years and had really done his homework. Definitely took us to non-tourist areas, and gave us a lot of extra historical and cultural information.
27 Sep 2013 Enrique did a wonderful job guiding us to three tapas bars and sharing interesting historical and cultural facts along the way. We saw a part of Barcelona that we would have otherwise missed and ended up going back to an area he recommended for lunch the next day
07 Sep 2013 The other couple didn't turn up, so we were able to really go into the non tourist areas, eat and drink like the locals
20 Jul 2013 Our bike tour of Barcelona was fantastic! Elizabeth was an excellent guide and we saw parts of the city that we would never have seen otherwise....it was great to get off the tourist trail! Our morning tea, beer and tapas was excellent. It was fun to explore different neighborhoods and ride down little back streets and lanes. Was also interesting to hear the history of different neighborhoods and about their transformation over the years, thanks Elizabeth ! The Martin Family
20 May 2013 It was just the two of us and Raphael, the tour guide. So he asked us about the Red Bus tour we did the previous day, which we were glad about, because he explained that some parts of the cycle tour would follow the same route. He asked us if we'd like to see other parts instead and we really appreciated that. Raphael was a very good guide, very knowledgeable and clearly very proud of his country. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. I highly recommend this as a way to explore the lovely city of Barcelona.
01 May 2013 Our guide, Matthias, was great. It was fun to spent the time with him. The only negative thing to mention was the female employee from urban adventures who was on the phone when I called because the guide was late. She was very impolite and unfriendly and not willing to help. Fortunately the guide arrived after a while and explained his lateness. He just extended the tour which wasn't a problem for the participants.I would suggest that urban adventure leaves the phone number from the guide in future than we don't bother the female employee.
13 Nov 2011 Fantastic day!!!! Boris our guide was wonderful, we got lost trying to find the meeting point and thought we had missed the tour when suddenly Boris came riding over all smiles greeting us and excited we were there! The information he gave us was wonderful and the whole experience of cycling around Barcelona was FANTASTIC!!! GREAT DAY!!!
20 Nov 2010 The cycling tour was fantastic and anyone can do it. Barcelona is flat and there are plenty of stops so you don't get tired. The guide was very good and his knowledge of the city is wonderful. Thank you so much I will recommend this Urban Adventure to everyone.
15 Oct 2010 Enrique, my guide is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. He is also a very interesting man,a writer and very passionate about barcelona and its unique architecture. I would definitely recommend this tour to other people and especially ask for Enrique.
11 Oct 2010 A great way to see a beautiful city! Cycling around with Charlotta (hope I got the spelling right) I really started to feel like a local. The cheese shop that we stopped at for tapas was amazing - I would never have found it on my own.
