Good routes and you do get to see nearly all of the hot spots in the city. Pretty good for children as well. Only downside is that it's expensive so make sure you use it for both days (we didn't) and try to do the bus tour early in your trip (we waited until the end and had seen all... More

Spent three days in Barcelona, Spain and took the "Hop On, Hop Off Bus" which covers two large areas of the city. What a way to see this place in such a short time and let some else do the tour driving. I was given a tour guide book and earphone so I could hear everything in English. At various... More

I was expecting more of a sightseeing experience, rather than on off the buses, with dullness in between the sights! The sights that seemed to rush past. The upstairs of the bus was full except for when we first got on. The only way you can get a 10% discount is if you print the voucher! Can't show your phone/tablet.... More

Whenever I go to a new city I always look out for official tour buses, Barcelona is no exception. There are 3 routes to choose from, Red, Blue and Green, covering different parts of the city. The buses are impeccably clean and run very frequently. The guide onboard will provide you with headphones so you can listen to a commentary... More

Just returned from a trip to Barcelona and while there purchased a two day ticket with Barcelona Bus Turistic for €35. Nice touches were that you were given your own individual earphones and there was free wi-fi on-board. All the staff that I met were very helpful and pleasant. You can choose from three routes - Blue North(approx. 2 hrs),Red... More

You are able to get on and off an unlimited number of times during your ticket. Be aware that there are long queues at popular destinations, but the buses come very frequently. If you buy your ticket at your hotel you get a small discount.

I have been on several Hop on Hop off tours in a variety of European cities and this by far is my least favourite. The audio guide has more musical interludes than information. The routes are long and many things you drive by you can't actually see from the street. This tour should be condensed into one line and cost... More

I only had two days in Barça, so I needed to see everything quickly. The two-day tickets is a good deal, so I would suggest the red and green routes one day and the blue route the next. Or the other way around. The hop on/off style is convenient and the stops are well-placed in an order that makes sense.... More

We bought a 2 day ticket online, and be aware that they say that you must print it out before hand. As a family who prefers apartments for space and cost reasons, we don't always have access to one. The bus is definitely a useful way to see different parts of the city. It's not exceptionally quick depending upon the... More

We bought a 2 day ticket at 35 euro and made the most of it covering all three routes. The bus is comfortable; the audio guide clear and informative. We just jumped off if something looked interesting and wandered around and then got back on the bus. I'd recommend this way of getting a quick viw of all the sights
