Description

During a TOURISIMO tour, a professional guide will lead you on carefully planned route from our premises only 50 meters from Park Güell, up to the hills, sights and cool air above Barcelona City.

 

Tour plan

After a brief introduction to the twizy and safety talk, you’ll be in charge of your own two-seat electric micro-car. You’ll star off in the one-way system of La Salud, where there is little traffic and no traffic-lights. This will give you time to get used to the new experience, before turning onto Avda Vallcarca.

You’ll follow the guide 1.3 kms on Avda Vallcarca to the start of “La Rabassada”, a true country road on the edge of Barcelona city.  This quiet, winding road will take you up the hills of Collserola where you will stop at a viewing point for some amazing views.

After time for photos and some local knowledge you’ll be guided onwards and higher into the hills. The views get better and the air gets cooler as you go.

If you choose our “Premium” tour you’ll head for the iconic tower on the hill, “La Torre de Collserola”. At the tower you’ll ascend up though this incredible structure to reach the viewing deck, 560 meters a.s.l. From there the views are unforgettable.

After the tower visit you will re-join the “Sightseer” tour route along the city side of the hills until you pass through the beautiful and historic village of Vallvidrera with it’s many modernist houses.

From Vallvidrera, you’ll begin your decent to the city but will stop again at another viewing point which has a completely different perspective on the city, and then continue down the winding roads to meet Barcelona’s outer ring-road, “La Ronda de Dalt”.

You’ll be guided along the lateral of the Ronda back to Vallcarca and arrive, once again, at TOURISIMO’s premises.

 

Duration of the tour

The tour is approximately 18 kms in length, it will take from 1.5 hours to just over 2 (depending if you choose the “Sightseers” tour or the “Premium”, tower visit tour. The entirety of the tour takes place within the 50 kph speed limit and all but a few kilometres are on quiet country roads.

I’m sure you’ll have fun riding in the Twizy, be amazed with the views and photo opportunities on offer and our guide will ensure that no one gets lost on the way.

Enjoy.

    A well done excursion to a very interesting partr of Barcelone. Many fotos to take home and nice to meet the other people on the trip. Only problem it was a little cold because the electric cars do not have heatings. We enjoyed the time a lot. Mercí.

    Best views in Barcelona, better than from park Guell or Mount Juic. A good and interesting way to get to the lookout points driving a Renault Twizy electric car, my son thought it was the best part of his holiday and wants to go back to Barcelona just to ride in a twizy again.

    We took advantage of the September special offer and it was well worth the 37.00€ for over 1.5 hours of fun. Highly recommendable.

    4.9 stars. Excelent excursion, great fun. My five year-old son thought it was the best thing ever. Only one problem. No toilets at the lookout stops. A tree had to suffice.

    Nice way to spend a couple of hours. We saw the hills and tower from the top of Park Guel and wanted to go there. This company, TOURISIMO is situated is situated between the park and the metro so we found it when we were heading back. Perfect. They offered to take us up to the hills on a tour which turned out to be really fun and interesting. We didn’t think we could get better views than from Park Guel but the sights from up there were really amazing. Just like the Hoillywood Hills.

    Great experience when you visit Barcelona. This is a way to see all the city from the best vantage point. We mixed a visit to Park Guell with a Tourisimo tour that we saw advertised on the way there and had an excellent afternoon away from the craziness of the centre.

    Tourisimo rocks!

    Well planned and timed tour, 1.55 hours door to door, that’s not bad in Barcelona traffic. We took some visitors to see the views and they enjoyed every minute of it.

    Well done Tourisimo.

    Cool trip. Interesting and enjoyable. Spanish drivers are crazy but still good fun. Best tour for photos in Barcelona, I live near the Hollywood Hills and it’s a little like that, I can see the similarity.

    Gracias and Adeos – Randy C.

    • Marvyn

      I agree Randy, the drivers here are a bit crazy but with the Twizy you can easily get between them all. Thanks for taking the tour and your comments. Take care.

    If you’re looking for something to do in Barcelona that doesn’t involve queueing for ages in 30 degrees of heat or being packed like sardines in a tin then this is it. Totally awesome experience out of the crowds and heat of the city, but still only 15 minutes away. Radical little electric cars and a great guide to show you where to go. Views, photos, great fun.

    Well done Tourisimo.

    Some things are good even when it rains. We paid about 25 euros each for a trip with Tourisimo today driving little Renault electric cars up in the hills above Barcelona. All was going well until on the way home the heavens opened and it started to rain big, heavy, drops. Electric cars with no windows, I thought we were in for it. Luckily our guide had it covered. We took an alternative route back up into the hills to get back to the office and were high above the city when the rain really set in.

    Thanks Marv for a really ejoyable tour, it was too short. And thanks for keeping us dry. I’ve e-mailed a couple of pics for your site.

    Cheers – Stan the man.

    Belle expérience.

    A route very hidden out of Barcelon to the best vues of the city. From the hills at the back you can see all la city and the arriving was very good. Electric cars, very funny. We wanted to come back for sunrise excursion but they are not available yet. Maybe the next year, I hope it.

    What a great day. So interesting to see the whole city from such a new perspective, and such a fun way to get there too. We had thought about going to Tibidabo but the combination of buses, trams and funicular railway seemed too complicated. And it was definitely too hot to go on foot.

    Tourisimo offered the perfect answer. We combined a tour with a visit to Park Guell, they’re on the way from the metro station to the park, and spent a fantastic day seeing all the sights of Barcelona from the high ground in the upper part of the city.

    The Renault Twizy is just a great little machine. Great to zip around in and with the help of the guide we were completely comforable after just a few minutes. Plenty of time driving on country roads with almost no traffic and stops every 10 to 15 minutes for photos and a chat. Some lovely Russian people were in the other twizy who didn’t speak much English or Spanish but I think they also had a great time.

    Thank you Marvyn and staff for an unforgettable experience.

    The Tourisimo experience is both exciting and very easy. It starts with a clear and informative website that provides all the information up front. Unlike so many airlines, car hire companies and other service providers, there are no hidden costs, surcharges or other nasty surprises waiting for you. The booking system couldn’t be easier and any questions you have get an instant reply. The cars are so easy to drive that you can just jump in and go, although there is always someone on hand to provide you with instructions and a safety briefing. Just because they are easy cars to drive, don’t think they are slow or boring. In fact, the opposite is true. They are fun and sporty and just crying out for the open roads ahead ……….. and what roads they are! The views just get better the higher up you get and when you reach the top, you are rewarded by a cool breeze and an a panoramic view over the city that can’t be described in words. You really need to see it for yourself. As I was on my own and had to fit my trip into a busy schedule, I only had time for the basic tour but I will be going back with my son next week to do the premium tour. I can’t wait. My next review will follow soon.

    Really enjoyed it. The Twizy was really easy to drive, and I didn’t really have to think about anything as I was just following our guide the whole way. A lovely relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Great views, and interesting to hear Marvyn talking so passionately about a place he obviously loves. So good I might do the longer tour before we go home!

    FANTASTIC! Loved the whole trip. Great scenery, and easy driving in such fun cars. It was fab to see the whole view of Barcelona open up in front of you as you got a little higher in the cooler hills! Marvyn is very knowledgeable and passionate about the tours! Thanks heaps!
