Artisans at work

Make sure to check out the 40 or so artisans throughout the village, many of whom will exhibit their craft for your enjoyment. The glass blower is particularly popular.

Really good value. But a few staff members are not too friendly

Excellent value. Overall really excellent. You can hop on and hop off which is great, so you can get to pack loads in. However you will need to start early to make the most of this. I did find a few staff members to be unfriendly however, especially on one bus where she kept everyone waiting and before we could get to seats with young children the bus drove off and one of my children fell. Otherwise is was excellent value for money. Also we did get off at the Marina and it took ages before a bus with enough seats arrived for us to start our journey again. But overall excellent value for money and stops at all of the main points.

Easy to get to and the castle is well worth a visit!

A bit of a queue but it goes down quickly enough. Disappointed that a whole group 15 plus Russians pushed in front of us and no body said anything! However I was glad they were out of the way! Very rude! But the cable car was well worth it for the views! I would recommend you get on at mirador go down the rack then all the back up to the castle ... the queue are shorter there!

Regular service, very friendly and helpful staff

A fantastic way to check out the city sites!

It was a lovely day to see the sites and amazing buildings of Barcelona. Also having the opportunity to get on and off to visit the parks then enjoy ice creams along the way made our day more enjoyable. I would recommend everyone does this when visiting this beautiful city.
