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...more

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

We are a family of four with two teenage boys. We loved getting around the city on bikes and Maria was a fabulous guide! There were only two other people in our group. Maria took us to non-tourist places and it was interesting to see...More
This was a great bike tour around the whole city of Barcelona. Our tour guide, Edu (short for Eduardo), was great! What we liked about it was that he took us to the real Barcelona not the touristy parts. He was very knowledgeable and personable....More
We had previously done a bike tour of Barcelona (with Fat Tires) about 12 years ago which was also excellent, this time we chose Steel Donkeys as it was something a bit different and the group sizes were smaller. Booking was very easy and the...More
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local
musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
