Excellent bus - unfortunately it rained, so we came down to the bottom level, but the rain kept on rushing down the staircase like a small torrent. Would have been much better on a sunny day!
Great way to get around a large city and see all the sites. Would have been better if they start running earlier as most tourist spots open the same time as the run starts and the queues are long.
It was great. It was Sunday so most of the shops were closed, but we did find some local vendors and found some great souvenirs. Saw some amazing sites. Thanks so much. We have recommended your company
Great way to see the highlights of the city. Was quite packed with it being the height of summer so we didn't get off at the busy stops in case it took a long time to get back on. Some covered seats on top as well for those not wishing to sit in the sun all day but they get snapped up fast so bring hats and sunscreen.
This bus is very convenient and runs very frequently. We did not encounter any lines to board the bus. We enjoyed the recorded tour, and loved the stops - especially the Olympic Park and FC Barcelona stadium. Just note that a 2-day ticket must be used on consecutive days. I did not see that noted when I made my reservation, and wound up eating the second day because I had planned to use the bus on Wednesday and then Friday.
This is not the tour I would take during Spain's rainy season. Despite the roof on the double decker bus, customers will get wet when it rains. Time wise, it theoretically would be difficult to get on and off, and see all the sites without having to buy at least a 3 or 4 day pass. If you choose this option, do your homework and pick the sites you really want to tour. Thankfully, the tour bus stops have great signage and it is easy to spot about the city.
Had to wait at one stop for three buses before we could get on, after we were told an empty bus was picking us up.
We tend to do these type of tours in a city we have never visited to get an idea of what we want to visit more in length. This was a good tour, although a few stops were redundant, they are on both lines. We chose this one since there were two lines through one ticket. One day ticket was plenty.
Pisa was excellent, Florence was crowded.The tour was a very large one and time was spent rounding up stragglers who had stopped to buy souveneirs or gelato during the tour. I'm not sure what could be done about this.
