There are 2 lines, and all the excursion takes 4 hours each. This is the longest city sightseen I've ever got. The price is somehow expensive, but I think it's worth

This method of transportation to see all of the city sites was amazing. One stop was walking distance to hotel. Drivers were all good and friendly. Never was too busy to get a spot. I recommend this to everyone going to Barcelona.

Good by for your money if you lost the ticket. There is no way to get your ticket back even if you have proof of purchase, voucher, invoice and everything else. Be careful!
