The price of the Steel Donkey bike ride experience is below. We’ve tried to keep our prices as competitive as possible bearing in mind the small group/private nature of the experience, which is part of what makes us different to every other bike tour in Barcelona.
Price per person: 35 euros each on a normal city bike
NEW for 2017: We are also offering the option to do the tour on an electric bike for a 10€ surcharge (in total 45€ per person). Please just indicate this in your reservation!
Please note the maximum riders on any tour is 8 people (average group size is just 3-4 people), so you’ll always get plenty of opportunity to interact with your guide.
The price of the day out includes the bike rental and the guide, however it DOES NOT include food and drink purchased at bars/cafes, so please bring some extra cash. We suggest around 10-20 euros, although you may want to bring more for impulse purchases and funky souvenirs.
Booking A Tour…
We currently offer three regular tour departures per week:
Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 10.00am
NEW for 2017: Due to the high demand, we have added an additional departure from April to October on Wednesdays at 10am!
A reservation in advance is always necessary! You can either BOOK ONLINE up until 24 hours before tour departure (in which case you will also pay online via credit card). Or if you prefer to pay on the day you can send us a booking request via email and pay in cash at the end of your tour (pls. note we can only accept Euros). For last minute bookings (ie. less than 24 hours) we advise you contact us by phone (+34 657286854).
If you can’t make one of our regular tour departures, we also offer private tours for 45 euros per person (minimum 2 persons). In this case, please send us an email with your preferred departure date and time and the number of persons in your group. For a 10€ surcharge (in total 55€ per person) we will do the tour on an ebike! Also, please let us know if there is anything in particular that you would like to see or that you are interested in (art, architecture, vintage shops, markets, parks, beach, food…).
All tours depart from the shop of e-bike rent on Carrer Cervantes 5 (it’s a little bit hidden, so head to our contact page for a map and directions – and make a note of our number just in case +34 657286854).
Important safety/legal notice: We are looking forward to showing you around the city, however please be aware that we will not be held responsible for your safety whilst riding with us. We suggest this experience only for competent bike riders and advise all travellers to take out adequate travel insurance before they leave home. (Ps. We don’t want to scare you however… we choose safe routes, utilising bike paths, quiet roads, parkland and beach boulevards wherever possible – and we haven’t had any accidents so far in several years of operation!). Helmets are available for free on request.
As of 2013 Steel Donkeys also offers bike hire and rentals.
