About The Barcelona City Bus Tour:
The Barcelona City Tour is a flexible sightseeing service that lets visitors explore the Catalonian capital for either 1 or 2 consecutive days. Tours run all year round and are served by a fleet of red double-decker buses, each one featuring an open-top upper deck and a sheltered lower deck, as well as ergonomic seats and ramp access for wheelchair users.
The upper decks are equipped with a sliding roof which can be engaged to provide shade during warm weather. Air-conditioning is also available on the lower decks for those who require it.
Audio commentary is available in a choice of 15 languages (including English), and you don't have to bring your own headphones as these are provided when you exchange your ticket voucher.
Present the ticket voucher you receive from this site on any Barcelona City Tour bus and receive a complimentary tourist guide plus discount voucher book. It's possible to save over 200 Euros with these vouchers, as the deals are valid in shops, restaurants, museums and much more. Other amenities include free on-board wi-fi and a free mobile app.
