Placa del Rei: Tours & Tickets
What people are saying about Placa del Rei
A good choice for a short visit of the city. The price for the 2-day variant is roughly the same as a metro ticket from/to the airport (separate ticket) and a 10-rides ticket for metro. Discounts for museums are a nice extra value, I would say. I don't know if the lady giving me the card (in the tourist info at the airport) made a mistake, but I only got a blue "transport card" which worked on public transport (incl. the airport metro) and then in the museums and other places they asked me to show them "the red card" (Express card) which I didn't get. In most places showing them the map which comes together with the Express card was enough to get the discount, but they said I was supposed to have "the red card". So make sure that you get all you are supposed to get when picking up the card(s)!
This was a great start to our short trip in Barcelona. I didn’t know how to use the segway, but Alex was lovely, and gave us a little training session at the start! It was just my husband and I on the tour, which was much more comfortable. When searching for the meeting point, it is on the corner of an alleyway, so you might miss it, just look out for the “segway tours” sign.
We were very lucky with our guide Victor. He led us through his city with lots of knowledge and passion. He kept it interesting and fun and we learned a lot during our tour. Yes you can walk through the old city yourself but getting to know more about the history and traditions makes it so much more interesting. Thank you Victor for making it a fun experience!!
Any tourist can do the walk, but a walk with knowledge needs a guide and a good guide is always welcome. Thank you Fiore for being that guide. Fiore is patient, informative, welcomes questions, knows every one’s name, inclusive ... and on and on with a wonderful smile and demeanour. She blossomed for us.
It was super easy to exchange the voucher for a ticket at the airport without having to struggle with ticket machines. The only down-side, I didn't get to explore the discounts that the card offered but there were really a lot of options!
