Really básic information about monuments and Barcelona.I think they must inform about the history and other projects in Barcelona. I wont recommend this service. I think the tube or urban bus would be the best choice.

As not lot of time to visit the city we've choiced the bus tour and it was great. But on Sunday no choice for the tour' side and it's little bit expensive and crowded. Please do this tour by good weather only.More

Great way to see around this vast city. Buses frequent. Staff very helpful. Some buses older than others. If you can sit on upper deck. Earphones included in price. Some connections on bus not brilliant. Free WiFi. Informative commentary.

Barcelona is big and spread out. The city tour bus was a great way to see all areas of the city. We bought the two day pass and it was perfect. I don't think we could have seen everything in one day. You have the...More

We bought a 2 day pass for €40 each and it was worth every penny. We did the green tour twice, getting off at lots of stops on the first day, then back round to the Sagrada Família on the second morning for a tour....More

Fairly good - being used to London, we were surprised by the long (and occasionally driven too fast) gaps between stops. The commentary was out of sync with the actual 'attractions' -so we heard about them as after we had passed them. Having said that,...More

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
