The Hop on Hop Off Bus in Barcelona gets you where you want to go but public transit can do the same! On the positive side, the buses run frequently and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes for the next bus to come. However, the bus runs in only one direction and the routes are long, the... More

We bought our two day pass just before it decided to rain, on each bus we were told if there was no cover upstairs and on some we chose to sit downstairs ( I agree about the lack of seats with good visability), we did hop off at our hotel and pick up a towel which meant we could dry... More

My boyfriend and I had spent 3 days walking around Barcelona and wanted to give our legs a break so we decided to do this bus tour. It was such a waste of our money!! It said its last bus runs around 8pm after getting off a few stops to walk around my bf and I were waiting at a... More

There are very few seats on the bus with good visibility: the publicity on the sides of the bus makes it very difficult to see through the side windows and, when it rains, the top level, although sometimes covered, is extremely uncomfortable. There are plenty of buses and we never had to wait for a long time.

Overall I think this was a great way to move around and see the city. We made a mistake of not buying the two day pass. I think it makes it worth it the most. The idea of this bus is great. They have many stops all over the city and three different lines that all make various size loops.... More

There seems to be only two hop on hop off companies ,Barcelona bus touristic and the buses that are all Red. We used the Bus Turistic ,which I think has the best routing. The big problem is that when it rains very few of their buses have a movable cover on the top. So when it rains they stop people... More

this was a real waste of money and time. We have done this hop on hop off bus tours in many cities around the US and Europe with positive experiences, but this was just awful. We sat in traffic, there were long stops to allow people to pay before the bus moved on. When we passed a notable site we... More

This is a perfect way to get around. Certainly suggests areas to browse around that will not have been suggested to you when you have told others about your planned visit. We did a 2 day ticket and went on all three routes stopping at different places each time. The only down side is that as you would expect -... More

I got on the HOHO bus at Placa Catalunya, right by my hotel. Started with the red route which was wonderful. I didn't get off but just used it as a city tour. I had a seat on top and the weather was very conducive to sitting outside. Give you a map and headphones so you can listen to the... More

Anybody visiting Barcelona for a few days should really hop on these busses! You can buy a day pass for around 28€ or a two day pass for 35€. We only bought the one day pass but regretted not spending the extra money on the two day pass because it's such an easy system of getting around the city. There... More
