Tourisimo; For kids of all ages

Kids of all ages love Tourisimo. This little guy is just waiting to reach the age of 18 when he can hire and drive a Tourisimo 100% electric Renault Twizy to the hills which rise high above the city of Barcelona. Among all the things to do in Barcelona this is one of the most eco-friendy tours there is. You drive you own little electric two-seater and follow the guide on an electric scooter up and out of the city to the cool hills of the Collserola Natural Park, where the views and photo opportunities are second to none.
Kids over five years old are always welcome at Tourisimo, our cars meet all European construction and safety and are fitted with European approved seatbelts and airbags. Young drivers are also welcome, unlike other hire companies, because each Tourisimo tour is accompanied by a professional guide, any qualified driver with a licence valid in Spain, and who is 18 years old or older can drive our cars. 

Tourisimo; For kids of all ages

For a cool tour in Barcelona where you and your friends can drive your own electric cars only Tourisimo gives you the freedom. Our Renault Twizy 80s, have a top speed of 80 kms and can cover 60 plus kilometres on a single charge. Even with two people aboard they nip around the hill roads above Barcelona very nicely. Your guide will lead you out of the city, after only a few sets of traffic lights you’ll be free on the quiet country roads looking down on the city. You’ll stop at some scenic lookouts, or “miradores” for views and photos and have a geat sightseeing oportunity coupled with a fantastic driving experience. Don’t get stuck on a Barcelona bus tour or ubiquitous hop-on-hop-off tour, express your individuality and drive yourself with Tourisimo. When wondering what to do in Barcelona, think outside the box, you don’t have to run with the tourist crowd, there are fun and exciting individual experiences to do too.

A city with so much to offer, the famous Barcelona sightseeing meccas of Park Güell, La Sagrada Familia, La Casa Mila and La Casa Batlló are all well worth the time and effort required to visit them. The only down-side is just that, time and effort. In the tourist season, which in Barcelona effectively runs for 12 months but peaks between May and September this often means hours of waiting in hot queues just for the privilege of standing shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of other tourists when you visit one of the famous sites. The Barcelona beaches are great, but in summer they are always crowded too. For a break away from the heat, noise and crowds of central attractions there is always the escape to the hills above the city. One of the few companies who specialise in this area and not the centre of the city is Tourisimo. From our base close to Park Güell, and the line 3 metro stations and Vallcarca and Lesseps we take guests on an eco-tour of the Collserola Natural Park using our 100% electric cars. Guests drive their own two-seater with friends or family in the back seat and follow our guide on a real adventure. Photo stops, incredible views and local knowledge are all on offer at the various scenic lookouts which we stop at, and on weekends, we can even ascend to the viewing deck of the telecommunications tower which dominates the hills beside the city, La Torre de Collserola. To add to the excitement of the drive, the glass walled lift will raise you to the viewing deck, 560 meters above sea level, where you can see all of Barcelona, and on a clear day, a great part of Catalunya.  

For an exciting and very different Barcelona experience, away from the crush and crowds of El Born, Raval, Las Ramblas and La Boqueria, try something more individual. A Tourisimo tour, available to any diver from 18 to 80, fun for children and to those who wish they still were children alike is truly one of the best things to do in Barcelona. We’re open seven days a week and look forward to welcoming you here at Carrer de Sostres 17.
