Overview

Steel Donkeys are the first and only alternative bike rides of Barcelona. We're not about dry historic facts and the same daily routines that characterise other mass market bike tours. We're about getting on a bike and exploring the hidden corners of the city, like flea markets, futuristic skyscrapers, vintage shops, secret courtyards and local beaches... Our guides are young, knowledgeable locals who were either born in Barcelona or have lived here for several years. We like to talk about the real experience of life in the city, modern politics, culture and stories. But most of all we like to have a fun relaxing day out on a bike with our new friends... you! We ride with a maximum of 8 people, offering a more personal experience, greater mobility and sustainability (as this way we don't contribute to the congestion of mass tourism). When you ride with us you'll never feel like just another tourist on the treadmill. Hope to see you soon in Barcelona!

My wife and I had a tour with Edu earlier today and had a blast. Taking bikes allowed us to cover a lot of ground while still getting an intimate view of the city. Edu took us out of the Gothic Quarter and into some...More

We chose this bike tour over international ones like Fat Tire (everywhere) because they claimed their tour was different, did not go to the normal tourist sites, but took you on a tour "off the beaten Path". I wanted to give Steel Donkey a 4.5...More

Hi Cris Thanks for your feedback. We're really glad you enjoyed the tour, but sorry that it was not as alternative as you were expecting. Nadim was actually bravely stepping up to the plate at the last moment, as our scheduled guide was not able...More

Not sure. I prefer to ride alone. We went on a tour with 10 friends. Had a ball!
