Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 7,478 reviews

Really useful to have this, made getting round the city very easy - I used the Metro as this was the easiest/most convenient. Also helped give some ideas of things to go & see when I struggled to know what to do whilst saving me money overall, compared to if I had paid for every entry to a museum

A very convenient way of sightseeing, at each attraction you can get off, visit and continue your journey around the city. Stops are densely arranged, the bus runs frequently. Minus does not have a multimedia guide in Polish, it concerns Barcelona.

Great way to get to know the city Guides - some were helpful some were disinterested (they failed to open the doors to let us off the bus)

Great to get around Barcelona, ticket person very helpful with directions, lots of buses so no long waits for next bus.

Brilliant way to see the sights and get around the whole of Barcelona
