Travelling with kids and elderly parents, this is definitely the way to sightsee Barcelona! You won't miss anything in awesome Barcelona! The hop on-hop off concept is marvellous! Price may be expensive per head (there were 8 of us) but the service is very professional. Buses are 10 minutes apart and each can hear the guide with individual headphones. If... More

We went on the Blue route, which proved the most popular. Beware, at the first couple of stops, the queues were mental - although you have more chance of jumping the queue if you don't mind sitting downstairs (defeats the object, imo). Free earphones and voiceover in various languages which was great. You can get on and off as much... More

My family had bought a similar hop on and off tour in London and loved it, paid for one in Paris years ago & it was bad due to poor weather and poor audio quality (recording). For 4 people for 2 days, we did get to round the city, but a Barcelona bus pass or saving the money and using... More

Great tour taking in all the main sights, very frequent buses, lots of staff but it did seem a little expensive, over €100 for 3 of us. But all in all a great service and I wouldn't have seen half of the things I did without it!

The bus takes you to the main touristic sites and gives you some interesting facts on the audio. Fairly frequent though occasionally you couldn't get on the top which was worth waiting for the next bus for. The free wifi was also very helpful. However, there is a 2nd tour bus which runs a slightly different service which is worth... More

Friendly staff, good service (never waited more than 10 minutes) and choice of 3 routes open. We took the 2 day pass which at 70Euros for 2 of us was very good value. Little limited on the information given at some points of interest but overall definitely recommended!

There appears to be 2 different companies offering much the same thing in Barcelona. We used the Bus Turistic as it offered 3 separate routes that overlapped at certain points, to enable us to hop on, hop off and join another route. We did all 3 routes, red, blue and green, albeit that the red route takes in the better... More

The tour in our opinion was a bit overpriced as it cost over €160. However it did give us a great tour of the city. You would need to do two days to have enought time to hop on and off.

Of our group of five well-travelled friends, tow were a bit skeptical of taking this bus... But it turned out to be a great day, being able to jump on and off wherever we liked, with the three routes, Red, Blue and Green, taking us all around the city... Well worth while. I also recommend taking a close look at... More

the 2 day bus tour is excellent value as long as you get up early both mornings and use it as a taxi service as well to visit all the sights across barcelona over its 3 routes
