There is no doubt that one of the best ways to see the city of Barcelona is using one of the tourist bus services which let people see most of the important places in Barcelona in a comfortable and enjoyable way.
Tourist buses have panoramic decks which not only let their customers see all the monuments from a different point of view but also make people enjoy the great weather of Barcelona.
There are two different tourist buses in Barcelona (from different companies):
With a daily service, Barcelona Bus Turístic offers 3 different routes that are included in the same ticket. Their double-decker buses cover all major sights and monuments with 44 stops in the city.
Also an audioguide, which has 10 languages available, will be offered to all the passengers in order to be able to know exactly your location and what the monuments that surround you are. Couriers will be also on board.
When in the tourist bus, just get off when you want and come back to the stop to take another bus, which will come in a frequency of 5-25 minutes. As for the routes, there are 6 transfer points that allow people to change from one route to another.
Barcelona City Tour offers a similar service. With 2 different routes, Bcn City Tour provides a multilingual audio system (available in 12 languages) that gives information on each point of the route. Also a guide will be ready to attend you at any time and leaflets (which are available in 6 languages) with a map of Barcelona and description of the route and the stops will be given to all the passengers of the buses.
In order to facilitate the access to the service by persons with limited mobility, all the vehicles have an automatic access ramp and space reserved for wheelchairs. It is also worth to say that all the Barcelona City Tour vehicles meet the European emission standards.
