After walking around Barcelona in the heat on our first day, we chose to give the Bus Tour a go. It was a convenient (and cooler) way to learn more about the city and the different sights to see.

We went on the red route and found it very informative. It gave us more ideas on where to go next- we particularly enjoyed the tour of Montjuic and spend the next two days exploring this area by ourselves.

The bus itself was very busy- staff did really well to manage all of the different customers they met. We bought tickets online and we got a small discount in doing so. We showed this to the staff on board and they printed us a ticket which we used the next time we boarded.

Overall, would recommend but at the same time, you could easily see these sights yourself (if you don't mind the heat).

We completed this bus tour in order to get a full overview of Barcelona. We also had a daughter carrying an injury incurred earlier in our holiday so it was an ideal option. To do the full tour ie blue and red routes, allow four hours, only getting off to change from blue to red as you have to do at some points. We did it this way but if I were to do it again without injuries impacting our decision, I would recommend getting off at Sagrada Familia, Park Güell (you can't see it from the bus), Camp Nou, one of the stops in Montjuic for the views over the city (eg MNAC art museum or Teleferic de Montjuic), Port Vell, Casa Batllo (a stunning Gaudí creation). It costs €30 each and you receive headphones that you plug in beside your seat, selecting the language of your choice. The audio is very clear but descriptions of places are given before you see them, something I found frustrating especially at the start when I did not realise this was how it was done. I do recommend it as a great way to see Barcelona but not in one go which means devoting one full day to this tour.

The tour bus was comfortable and went well overall, with two full routes to view the city of Barcelona. The major complaint i have is that most of the sites were blocked by trees/foliage in Barcelona, so it was difficult to see them during the bus ride (unlike Paris). Its not the tour operators fault, but cost/benefit may not make it such a good option.

The second complaint is that the voice tour guide was inferior to other bus companies Ive used in the past in New York, Paris, and Sevilla.

So, the hop on and hop off tour bus is a proven concept in many cities. Barcelona is no exception in many ways. There are 2 routes. The orange and the green. Both offer some great sites to view although both are also punctuated with a lot of stops I didn’t think were of great interest. For example, the main train station and the ferry terminal. These stops are obviously convenient if you hop on from there but are of less interest to most I would guess.

The routes are very busy, the green less so. The bus was clean and offered commentary in many languages which was good. The routes themselves are rather frustrating, not least because of the amount of stops but also, transit around Barcelona is slow thanks to the millions of traffic lights. It makes for a lot of time sat on a bus, going nowhere.

Personally, I think there are too many stops and spread too far apart as the tours take so long, you end up having little time to then retrace the route and get off at places of interest. If you can, a two day ticket may be better.

We sat on the upper deck and have lovely views of the city on what was a lovely sunny day.

Overall, a good way to see things but a little long for my personal taste and a rather convoluted route which not only saw 3/4+ stops duplicated, but also took in a lot of things I’m not sure add any real value to the tour….although granted, that may simply be an effort to provide broad access to many people.

Tickets were 35 euro each for a day for adults and 45 euro for 2 days, which in hindsight, might actually be the way to do it.

Bought 2 day pass which started at 2 pm on a Tuesday, sales rep at Plaza Catalunya mentioned we can still get on the bus by 1:59 on Thursday. We rode the red route that afternoon, got on the blue route next morning after visiting Parc Guell, and took red route to Plaza Espana/MNAC on third day. Buses were running frequent during the times we used and not too crowded where we got on. It is nice there are shades at front and back of the upper deck. It is very difficult to take photos from the bus, we used it to get to know the sights and decide where to hop off. Since first bus did not start until 9 am and we had timed entry at Parc Guell and Sagrada Familia when they first open, we took taxi to these places then hopped on the bus afterwards. Overall not a bad way to get around Barcelona sights for first timers, especially with fresh air on top deck as opposed to metro. Looking back, I don’t know if I would do the 2 day pass again - on the third day, it may have been more time and cost effective overall to get to Plaza Espana by taxi. All staff we interacted with were pleasant and friendly.

As we were here for only one day, on a cruise stop over, we always use the hop on and off buses to get a feel for the city, and to see if it is worthwhile coming back for a few days visit. here In Barcelona, it certainly is. We used both routes, in different stages, and we got a great insight into the city. Good commentary, although it was a little out of sync at times, The buses were not too busy, and with a good frequency. Some stops will be a lot busier than others, eg Gaudi Cathedral, so you may have to wait a little time there.

A great way to see the city. A two day ticket cost €40 per person which is slightly expensive, but it allowed us to take in both routes. Each route lasts approximately two hours and provides a good overview of the lay out of the city.

One of the important aspects of a hop on hop off bus is that there are enough regular buses to cope with capacity. This is absolutely not the case with the Red Tourist Bus company. Buses are really infrequent in comparison to the Bus Turistic competition. In addition when trying to get on a half empty bus at the Sagrada Familia the conductor refused to let us on, on the basis that he needed to keep space for the other stops. Hardly hop on hop off then!!! I would recommend not to use this company and select the Turistic company instead. I cannot vouch for their customer service but I cannot imagine it is worse than the experience we received.

Booked the one day hop on hop off pass. Having done it, I'd actually recommend the 2x day over the one day ticket. This is because there are 2x routes, the blue route which runs the northern area and the red route which runs the southern area. Each route takes approx 2 hours (4 hours total) without taking into consideration the time it takes to hop off and view sites. So we ended up restricted with what we could visit in one day. Also consider sitting upstairs at the rear of the bus under the folded roof during the height of summer as its extremely warm in the direct sun.

We bought a 2x day ticket. It was worth every penny. The company have two routes, red and blue. The blue route covers Sagrada Familia, Park Guell and FC Barcelona. The Red route covers the old bull ring, Montjuic with the Olympic stadium and the port area. Both tours start from Placa de Catalunya which is located at the top of La Rambla. You can hop on and hop off buses at will, just make sure you keep your tickets safe as you need them each time you hop on.
The routes cover everywhere you need to go. The guide is in many languages and provides an interesting commentary.
We try to use a hop on hop off guided tour in every city we visit. This service was as good as any of the best bus tours. Thoroughly worth the money.
