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.
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.
