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.

  5. Toby Gillingham

    Very good tour, the kids loved it, would have been perfect if we had stopped at a café or restaurant as we were all hungry, but the guide Marvin supplied bottles of water which as good also. Great to drive the little electric cars which are quite nippy, better than being stuck in a bus. The views from the stops were excellent as was Marvin’s explanations and anecdotes about Barcelona.

    All in all well worth the time and price.

    Tour ****4.5, Views *****5, Staff *****5, Value for Money *****5, overall experience *****5+

    • Marvyn

      Thanks a lot, always good to know guests appreciate the experience. I’m sorry we couldn’t stop at a café or restaurant during your tour, the main problem is parking the cars. In the near future we hope to introduce a “picnic tour” during which we will provide a picnic lunch of quality local produce served at a local beauty spot. Watch this space.

      Thanks again – Marvyn.

    • Marvyn

      Many thanks for your recommendation Eva and Lizza. Glad you had fun with us.

      Rgds – Marvyn.

  11. Jason P

    Four stars out of five, only because it started to rain and that reduced the visibility a lot. We stayed under some trees and didn’t get too wet and the rest of the tour was really good. We didn’t expect to see Barcelona City from the hills above but the route takes you from one end to the other so you look down on La Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, Camp Nou and all of the city.

    Well worth the cost, highly recommended.

    Best from Jason P.

    • Marvyn

      Yes, even in Barcelona in June you can find rain. Lucky it didn’t last too long and I’m very happy it didn’t completely ruin your tour. Really happy you enjoyed the dry bits.

      Best regards – Marvyn.

  12. V K Al Khalifa

    • Marvyn

      Thank you Mr & Mrs Al Khalifa. I’m very happy you enjoyed your tour with us. It was a pleasure to show you some of this great city from a different perspective.

  13. SCOUSE ANDY

    BANGING EXPERIENCE, THE CARS DRIVE LIKE GO-KARTS AND THE ROADS THROUGH THE HILLS WERE EXCELLENT. ONLY PLACE WE’VE FOUND WHERE YOU CAN HIRE A CAR AT AGE 19. THE GUIDE WAS A GOOD LAUGH AND DIDN’T SPARE THE HORSES ON THE TRIP BACK DOWN TO THE CITY. I RECOMMEND IT, GET IN.

    LATER…….SCOUSE ANDY.

    • Marvyn

      Thanks for the review Andy. Very happy you enjoyed the driving and sightseeing, enjoy the rest of your visit to Barcelona.

      Rgds – Marvyn.

  14. Peter

    Good way to spend a few hours, after all the queueing for La Sagrada Familia and Park Guell tickets, it was good to get away from all the crowds in the city centre. Even if all the Gaudi stuff was very interesting and the visit to the Camp Nou stadium of FC Barcelona was fine but the tour with Tourisimo was as good or better. Great views and great fun to dive the Renault Twizy electric cars up to the Collserola Natural Park. We’d done the ubiquitous Barcelona bus tours and the city sightseeing and were looking for more things to do in Barcelona when we found Toursimo only 50 meters from Park Güell. No need to worry about what to do in Barcelona centre when you can get out of it and experience the fresh air and fantastic views from the “miradores” or scenic lookouts in the hills above the city. The price was very reasonable, 24.95€ per person for over 1.5 hours with a human guide, not a GPS and a load of local knowledge thrown in.

    One of the best things to do in Barcelona, thanks Tourisimo.

    Peter J.

    • Marvyn

      A big thank you for your positive review, it was good to have you on the tour.

  15. Michael

    Best sightseeing experience in Barcelona. The Renault Twizy electric cars were great fun and the roads through the Collserola Natural Park were really good. We followed the guide up to various scenic lookouts high above the city, the “Hollywood Hills” description is just about right. We had been on some Barcelona bus tours and visited the Gaudi sites like La Sagrada Familia and La Casa Mila etc, but the Tourisimo tour was by far the best city sightseeing tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and give us some great tips for things to do in Barcelona. Good price, great fun, well worth it, one of the best Barcelona tours. RECOMMENDED.

    • Marvyn

      Thanks very much for your positive comments.

      Rgds – Marv.

  16. Johanes

    Excellent experience, great way to spend a few hours.

    • Marvyn

      Thank you for the comment Jonhanes. Greatly appreciated.

  17. Col

    COOL TOUR, LOVED IT, ECO TOUR, LOVED IT, GREAT BARCELONA EXPERIENCE LOVED IT.

  18. M.Craigie

    On a visit to the city I looked at all the things to do in Barcelona and was amazed at how many Barcelona sightseeing opportunities there were. I did a bus tour, a typical hop-on-hop-off tour but the best thing I did was a tour with Tourisimo Barcelona. This eco-friendly, self-drive tour left from very close to the famous Park Güell so it was easy to combine it with a visit to the park. You get to dive an electric two-seater Renault Twizy following a guide on an electric scooter up to the Collserola Natural Pak which borders the city. The drive is really enjoyable and the views from the “miradores”, or scenic lookouts, are incredible. So if you’re stuck for what to do in Barcelona, had enough of the queues at La Sagrada Familia, La Casa Batlló and La Pedrera, look no further than Tourisimo, one of the best Barcelona tours there is.

    Many thanks to Tourisimo guide for a great tour.
    Malc.

    • Marvyn

      Thanks for the great review Malc. It’s good that you found a way to get out of the city centre madness and relax with a Tourisimo tour. It’s certainly a different way to enjoy the Barcelona experience.

      Rgds – Marvyn.

  19. Richard T

    Nice tour, would recommend it to all my friends. Tourisimo is close to Park Guell and the tour guide leads you up the hills at the back of Barcelona city. We got some great photos. The little electric cars are really fun to drive and not too much traffic.

    • Marvyn

      Thanks Richard for the positive comments, always a pleasure.

  20. Isabelle

    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.

    Isabelle et Jean.

    • Marvyn

      Mercí beaucoup Isabelle and Jean. Great to meet you both, glad you enjoyed it.

      Rgds – Marvyn.

  24. Steve

    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.

    Steve H.

    • Marvyn

      Thanks Steve. It was a pleasure to meet you both. Tell little “H”, he can come back any time.

      Rgds – Marvyn.

  25. Vladmir

    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.

  26. JL

    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.

  28. Danny

    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!

  29. Steve Torrance.

    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.

    Saludos – ST

  30. Randy C

    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.

      Rgds – Marvyn J.

  31. Andres Gudjonssson

    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.

  32. Stan the man

    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.

  33. Didier

    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.

    Didier et Margot.

  34. Jan Torrell

    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.

    Jan Torrell / Richard Torrell.

  35. Ryan Rawlins

    Wicked tour, had a blast, gonna do the big one on Saturday can’t wait.

    Twizy number 3 is the fastest.

    Later- Ryan.

  36. Malcolm McKenzie

    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.

  37. Leticia

    Una experiencia recomendable si visitáis Barcelona. Conducir el coche es divertido y fácil. Las vistas de Barcelona desde los miradores son fantásticas.

  38. Marvyn Johnson

    Thanks very much Dougie, Peter and parties.

    It was great to have you all along on the tours, so nice when people appreciate the effort. If you get the chance, send me a couple of the great pics you took overlooking the city and I’ll load them on the site.

    Thanks again, and I hope to see you back in Barcelona.

    Best regards – Marv.

  39. Peter J

    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!

  40. Dougie Gray

    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!
