Perfect way to see the city!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Best way to see Barcelona. If you have 2 days take the 2 day tour. Start with the Blue line and stop at Casa Batlo, Sagrada Familia buy the tickets online in advance and Park Guell. Do not leave Barcelona without going to Sagrada Familia! Then the 2nd day you can take the red bus and stop at Pueblo Spanhol and take the cable car to the beach. Barcelona is awesome!!!

Easy way to see Barcelona. We hopped on after we arrived - and just rode around the city jet lagged. We figured out where we wanted to go the next day - and the next morning after a good night's rest we hopped on and rode right to our starting point. What a great way to see Barcelona!

Our family of 3 booked the 2 day trip to get about Barcelona and see the attractions. This was our 1st trip to Barcelona and this was the perfect method of seeing the city. Buses were frequent and we never had to wait more than 10 minutes to get on a bus. What particularly stood out was how the staff policed the upstairs seating. Obviously in August the upstairs seating of the bus is where everyone wants to be, especially since the view from downstairs is restricted. At each stop the bus stops a few yards from the queue of people wanting to get on. Once people have got off the staff ask anyone downstairs if they want upstairs before allowing anyone else on the bus. I thought this was a very fair way of treating the customers. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting to explore the city of Barcelona.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

great, bus goes past all of the main places of interest and its a good idea just to go all the way round to get an idea of what you want to go and see next. glad we got a 2 day pass.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great way to see the city of Barcelona!! The line at the first stop is quite long so get there early or be prepared to line up - it moves fairly quickly. Audio guide provides useful information and you can hop on and off as you please. The buses come frequently and you're able to do more than 1 line

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great tours. We did Red one day and a Blue the next. Get on by 10am, queues are shorter and it will be cooler.
