Itinerary

The tour starts from the Carrer Freixures 23 bis bajos, ES-08003 Barcelona Spain (100m from the Cathedral), in front of Santa Caterina Market. Closest Metro stops are Jaume 1 (Yellow line) or Urquinaona (Red line).

You will be provided with your GoCar for an exciting ride around the beautiful Barcelona city. Before starting the tour, an English-speaking guide will orient you on how to drive a GoCar. The driver must be 18 years of age and should carry along a valid driving license and credit card.

GoCar is a little 3-wheeler yellow car that takes you on a GPS-guided tour of Barcelona. Your clever talking car (in English) navigates and shows you the way. You may also experience Barcelona in a GoCar that speaks Catalan, Spanish, French, Italian or German. The GPS can be changed to the mentioned languages at no extra cost. However, this must be advised upon arrival.

A GoCar holds a maximum of 2 people. Your GoCar is controlled with a motorcycle-style handle, throttle, and hand brakes. This 3-wheeled car seats two and has a lockable trunk for your things. Its small size makes parking a breeze.

As you enjoy the drive, your GoCar takes you to the best of sites and shares interesting stories that bring the city to life. You can stop for photos, take detours, grab a coffee or break for lunch.
