A great experience.....much the best way to see this incredible city. At first thought it seemed a bit expensive but so glad we did it....no regrets at all and money well spent.....as the old saying goes 'you get what you pay for' and we certainly did!

You get a good overview of the city. There are 2 routes. Blue through northern Barcelona (including Sagrada Familia and FC Barcelona Stadium, red through southern Barcelona (including Montjuic. Hafen).

Great! Easy to find the check in points and very convenient for our first two days exploring Barcelona.

It was worth the money. The signs in every stops were also visible enough not to get lost.

Cool combination of a road tour across Barcelona, with many important stations!
