Our guide, Victor, was very nice, very friendly. He gave us an amazing experience, taught us alot about the basic history of the places we visited, was always checking to see that we were safe and gave us some very good tips on where to go and not to go. 10/10 for him!

If you want to visit a lot, it is 100% worth it. I travelled with my mom, and if we were to buy all the things we had used from this Pass, we would ve spent 100€ more than this cost

The card was an excellent resource while in Barcelona!!! The metro is fairly easy to navigate and it was nice to also have admission of various museums included. Money well spent.

Can only be recommended. The cost of public transport alone is covered. And the discounts at the museums and free admissions make the card even more attractive.

Good offer if you're staying in Barcelona for a while
