Great service, we go the 48 hour pass, the buses pass every 5 minutes and if the notice that in a specific stop they have too many people waiting the will send empty buses to deal with the extra costumers. Will take you to all the main attractions and narrate in different languages. Highly recommended.

Great way to discover city, and main attractions. Especially at the beginning of your stay therefore allowing you to take note of what you want to visit later on. And buying the tour allows you to get a free booklet of different sites around the city with discounts (Güell Parc, Casa Batllo, flamenco show, etc). Therefore, visiting different attractions allowed... More

We hadn't been to Barcelona for 42 years and the bus tours allowed us to get reacquainted with the city and environment. We didn't find it unusually crowded but the seats are made for shorter people and not very good if you are over 6'. The audio recordings are "passable" but not very informative. They could be a lot better.... More

Good tour- only way to cover the area really. Audio tour ok although lacked detail and lots of music in between. Earphones uncomfortable and tours got very busy.

Brilliant way to get around Barcelona and learn about the history and sites. However that is if you can get on one as the Queues in certain places especially the cross overs between the different routes are awful. At Placa du Catalonia, the cross over from the blue to the red the queue was well over 100 yards long and... More

We arrive later in the day but only had limited time in Barcelona, so we wanted to see all we could. Unlike ALL other bus companies we used worldwide, this company does not give you a 24 hour ticket from when you purchase your ticket. We bought it at 3.30pm thinking it would last us until the same time the... More

Barcelona is a very beautiful city blessed with many tourists, if you wish to spend your day standing in queues, Bus Turistic is the way to go. It was a busy day and we spend half a day in queues, we did not get to any of the attraction as there were queues for entry. To top it off, one... More

I'm not a big fan of touristic buses. All of them give me the impression of "tourism for lazy people". But if you don't have plenty of time I must admit it's a very good option. Although the price of the ticket is expensive, it gives you the opportunity to travel all over the city main atractions. There are two... More

Would not have had an accurate concept of why this city is world class without it. Convenient and the better price is worth a second day if you have the time.
