Tour buses produced by Higer have been obtained especially for the 2013 Summer Universiade. The new means of tour transportation is designated for guests of Kazan. Tourists will ride on them through the city's downtown and see the main attractions, historical landmarks, and architectural beauties of Tatarstan's capital with their own eyes, and not merely see them, but also learn many interesting things about them. The two-level tour buses have been equipped with an audio guide. The audio recording designed to acquaint guests will the city functions in eight languages: Russian, Tatar, English, French, Spanish, German, Turkish, and Chinese.

A ticket for such a tour can be obtained both in the bus itself and in Kazan's tourist information centre. The trip about the city lasts around an hour. A ticket is effective for 24 hours and can be used to get on a bus an unlimited number of times. It is planned to retain a similar tour service format for guests of Kazan after the completion of the 27th Summer Universiade as well.
