You've probably seen the red and yellow double-decker buses that run in different cities at one time or another! These buses go around the streets of the city giving tours for visitors and residents to learn about the history of the place. The name of the company is City Sightseeing, and it was created in the late 1990s.
It was born in Seville in 1998 and, a year later, it was presented at the World Travel Market as a franchise model, a tourism event that takes place every year in England and where projects and destinations of the English and world tourism sector are presented.
In the 2000s it began to expand and went from having a few routes in Spain and the United Kingdom to being present in numerous countries such as Denmark, Australia, Turkey, Italy, Scotland, Germany, the United States, Greece, Canada, Peru, South Africa, Vietnam and Russia, among others, making up a total of almost 100 locations internationally, present on six continents.
Buses have live guides or audio guides available in several languages who explain and provide information and commentary about the places visited, their history and culture. Discounts are offered on a regular basis and flexible tickets are available for use during the rest of the year.
Tourist buses are a good way to get to know the most interesting and emblematic places in the city in a short period of time before deciding which are the places you will be interested in visiting during your stay.
In Palma de Mallorca, the citysightseeing bus offers different packages with different prices, from the "iconic" package, which is the most basic package that includes the whole route through the centre of Palma passing by the most emblematic places, to the "ultimate" package, which is one of the most complete packages, with entrance to the Cathedral of Mallorca, Bellver Castle, Es Baluard Museum and a boat trip in the bay of Palma.
Whenever you visit big cities, be sure to take the citysightseeing bus tour, which is easy to use and ensures that, if you don't have much time, you'll at least see the most beautiful sights. You can get off at any stop along the route without limits, the ticket is valid for 24 hours. And on the bus you get a free map with recommendations of each place.
