Montjuïc: The scenic hill overlooking Barcelona city
Barcelona is a city surrounded by hills and mountains. Montjuïc is one these, with a height of 173 meters, and is one of the most beautiful spots in Barcelona. Rich in history and beauty, this famous attraction features breathtaking panoramic views of the city and harbor and various monuments and fountains, castles, fortresses’, gardens, viewpoints, the Olympic stadium and museums, all contributing to the charm of the mountain.
Most interestingly, however, is its fascinating history, that by its very nature as a fort, is full of battles, architectural renovations and politics.

The e-Bike will make going up the mountain easy, possibly without breaking a sweat! The route mainly follows bike lanes and paths through parks and nature trails with no or little automobile traffic. The e-Bike will do most of the work, but pedaling is still a must! As with all of our tours, this is an easy route, perfect for any fitness level.

Q: Where do the tours start and when should I arrive? All of our tours meet at E-bikes Rent on Carrer Cervantes 8, in the Gothic quarter (unless otherwise stated, Map and directions provided with your booking confirmation). Please arrive 10 minutes before your tour is scheduled to begin, and give yourself extra time if your unsure of the location.
Q: Where do we keep our stuff during the activity? Please only bring with you what you will be carrying on the tour.
Q: Do we also ride on roads? We will stick to the many bike lanes as much as possible. However this tour will mainly be on roads. Don’t worry though, these roads up on hill are very wide and not busy.
Q: What should I wear? In the summer months (June – September) you can wear typical day wear (shorts, t-shirt etc). In the other months we would suggest bringing a top with you in case you get cold, with possibly a small rucksack to keep it in. We would also recommend wearing decent footwear. Flip-flops are OK, but only if your used to riding with them.
Q: What should I bring? •Drinking water and possibly some snacks for energy, just in case. Also any sun protection yo might need (Hat, glasses and cream) •Camera •Anything else you would take on a normal day / night out, in case you want to hot a restaurant directly after.
Q: What route will we be doing? Your guide will choose a route for your trip based on the group, your preferences and to avoid any congested areas (festivals, traffic, road works etc)
Q: How fast do you ride? Will I be able to keep up? Will I get bored moving too slowly? Our pace depends on the group, but we generally take our time. We almost always have plenty of time to get where we’re going, so there’s no need to rush. We’ll keep things moving, but we won’t leave anyone behind.
Q: Will I see any Gaudi Architecture? Not on this tour. If Gaudi is what your interested in then the City Bike Tour is for you. Or, ask us for a Private Tour to cover all his sights.
Q: What can I bring on the tour? We recommend bringing as little as possible. Whatever you bring with you will have to be carried around by you on the tour. Small rucksacks are OK.
Q: Who will be taking me on the tour? One of our experienced guides will be showing you around. All of our guides have been living and guiding in Barcelona for many years.
Q: Do you have weight limits for the child seats? Unfortunately yes. The maximum weight is 20Kg.
Q: Are electric bikes (E-bikes) different from other city bikes? They almost look the same. The e-bike has the added help from a small hidden motor that’s in the wheel hub and a battery that’s under the seat. The motor doesn’t do all the work for you, you still need to peddle to get it started.
Q: What are the age restrictions? Minimum age is 12. We have no maximum age, if you can ride, then please come and join us.

Just give us 48 hours advance notice, and we will offer a full refund on any amount that you have paid (with the exception private group trips, which must be canceled 7 days in advance for a full refund). If you need to cancel within 48 hours of our reservation we generally cannot offer any refund, unless we can fill your spots. It may be possible to reschedule your booking for another day, depending on availability.
Q: When do you cancel tours for weather? We usually do not cancel tours due to overcast skies but we do cancel trips for steady rain. Safety and your enjoyment are our priority. If you have reserved a tour, we email you if we are canceling the trip due to weather and give you a choice of either rescheduling (depending on availability) or receiving a full refund. We will do this as soon as we know the tour will be cancelled, however, this can sometimes not be until right before the tour.

Q: Do I need to tip my guide? No, only if you want to and feel that it’s deserved. Tips are never expected, but always appreciated.
