This is the only tour in which a ride with the town bus is included and where we visit a mass tourist attraction. As we have designed this tour in our special way you can be sure that this really will be a unique experience.

Tour details

While you're sitting among downtown folk of Barcelona, the bus passes some of the most famous buildings of Gaudi. Through the former village of Gracia we go to the final bus stop which is called (translated in English): Great Views.

At the top of the hill where the first inhabitants of Barcelona once had their settlements, where the Romans had their observation post and where in the civil war the air anti-aircraft guns stood. Only visible signs of the latter are left.

When you are with us at this spot you will have a complete overview and you will also be aware of the essence of Barcelona, with its beautiful, glamorous side and its raw, primitive, unpolished side.
