We booked 2 day tickets through our hotel (Europark Hotel) and would recommend to all. You can get on and off as often as you wish and headphones are supplied to give a running commentary of the tours. We started with the Red tour, switched to the Green tour then returned to the Red for the first day. Second day... More

We stopped for the day off our cruise ship, and knowing we only had a few hours, we chose to see Barcelona with the Hop On Hop Off Bus. We managed to do all 3 circuits, which gave a very relaxing ride, good info through the ear buds, and great views of the city. We did get off at the... More

Paid for a 2 day pass as we wanted to use all three routes-Blue and Red very good and consequently very busy too-had to queue at a couple of stops but the staff were very good at marshalling people and made sure we got on the bus with the minimum of fuss. If you're pushed for time give the Green... More

The bus routes are good with many sights to see and great places to hop off and explore the city. We bought a two day pass and explored the red and blue lines. This got us around to most of the places we wanted to see, including Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Camp Nou, and many of the museums. Overall, it... More

I had been surprised by work colleagues with a birthday treat visit to Barcelona for my birthday, as they knew it was on my bucket list. I loved the city so much. On the first day of two, we walked and walked for seven hours. On the second day we thought we'd take the city tour to get to see... More

Our first day in Barcelona was raining which didn't deter us from sightseeing, we got two tickets at 27Euro each hopped on an undercover top level bus and set off to do the whole run. We had to move down stairs as we were getting wet (not their fault) but when we sat in various seats on the lower level... More

We bought the two day pass for the hop on/hop off bus tour. The narration was awful. We passed so many sites that we were curious about, but the tape told us very little. It was boring. Most times buses wouldn't show up, then two or three would come at the same time.

Great way to get around Barcelona's main attractions with good commentary along the way. Very friendly staff too. If no seats on top deck at busy times, the conductor will allocate you seats as soon as they become available.

Went for the 2 day option for €35 each, and found it very interesting. See everything you need to and the option to get on and off knowing there will be a bus within 5 mins of finishing. Beware of long queues at Place de Catalunya, worth getting up early to avoid (or going much later) not 11-2 when queues... More
