Return Details

You may disembark at any of the available stops.
Simply hop aboard the open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus and set off to explore the ancient, medieval and modern sights of beautiful Barcelona.

Sit back into your comfortable seat and enjoy the 360-degree views and informative onboard audio commentary as you weave your way through Barcelona's elegant avenues, pretty squares, medieval lanes and palm-lined waterfronts.

Switch between the different bus routes as you wish to explore different areas and aspects of the city, or stay aboard for the full loop to gain an overview of the city’s sights and landmarks.

When you’re ready, hop off at any of the conveniently located stops and explore the attractions on foot, at your leisure. Perhaps meander around the medieval alleys of the Gothic Quarter; stop off to visit the extraordinary UNESCO-World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia church designed by the late, great architect Antoni Gaudi; or soak up the lively atmosphere, shops and street theater along the vibrant Las Ramblas.

Alternatively, hop off to visit some of Barcelona’s cultural hotspots or to take a stroll around Port Olímpic, the picturesque palm-dotted marina crowned by a giant copper fish sculpture by Frank Gehry. These are just a sprinkling of the many things you can see and do during your hop-off hop-on tour!

A good way to meet Barcelona

Being able to get an overview of Barcelona shortly after arriving made it possible for us to decide which places we wanted to return to to spend our time. Buses were available and timely.

Being able to see both the north and south parts of the city without the hassle of driving and not knowing where I was going. The tour routes gave us a wonderful overview of the city. I look forward to the one we have booked in Madrid.

The bus driver did not give us all the tickets for that specific day's activities. It made us waste a lot of time having to interrup our day to get them at one of the Bus offices.

It was difficult to hear clearly on the top deck with the wind and couldn’t always see what the commentary was about. Gaudis residential work was impressive- that was easy to spot!

We had someone who could not risk taking the tour for health reasons and could not get a refund.. I know it was late, however I spent so much money on other tours with you I though there would be a bit more understanding.

Great way to see the city. Very easy to hop on and hop off. Sound quality on audio could have been better.

Convenient but needs improvement.
Heather_F

Great way to see many points of interest quickly. Convenient for the most part. Some sites you have to walk quite a ways to see. Some staff were very pleasant but there were a few that were extremely rude, yelling at everyone who gets on. Not ok. These people need a lesson on customer service.

I've done hop on/ hop off tours in both the states and overseas and this was by far my worst experience. If this were my first, I'd probably never do one again. The buses were mostly nice/ clean and staff was friendly/ helpful. The buses do come very often (10-15 mins) which is awesome. The stops are like nothing I've ever experienced. The site could be a several min walk or a public bus ride away from the bus stop. There are 2 routes which take 2 hours each to complete. The audio, although clear, left MUCH to be desired. If you are going to do La Sagrada Familia that will take u 2 hrs. Assuming u stop for lunch (1 hr), that's 7 hrs out of the day right there. Yes, the bus gets you around to city, but they are not points of interested you're going to get off, so you're going to spend a majority of your day, wasted, on a hot bus. Just sightsee on your own and save your money. I wish I did.

Stunning way to see the beautiful city. Great when the weather is good. Headsets provided and gave informative information about landmarks and places. buses were clean and modern. Only issue was having to wear masks which seemed a bit pointless.

Yelyzaveta_C

Taking too long, too slow. Masks on the bus are compulsory. Translation guide was boring. Many times was describing place already passed. If you are only for few hours in Barcelona, like us being only for 5 hours, because we had to get back on a cruise ship, don't waste your money and time. Taxi to Sagrada Familia costed only 14.5 Euro from the port.

Great experience except for not knowing in advance which bus line to use!
Keith_S
, Jun 2022
The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is that there was some confusion as to which bus applied to the booking. We tried to get on (what I thought was) the correct "city tour" red bus, but when we got there the attendant immediately told us that it was not the right bus and that what we wanted was the "touristic" busses. Then, when we got on that one, the lady checking the tickets told us that the reservation had been canceled! I knew it wasn't, but then it was stressful trying to access the wifi on the bus and call up the most recent ticketing info we had from Viator. I had pre-printed the original ticketing before the trip so as to make things easy, but for whatever reason it was not valid any longer once we got there. I don't understand why since the bar code on both documents looked the same. So, at any rate, once she scanned what I was able to retrieve on the phone, we were good to go. We loved being on the bus and listening to the audio commentary and rode the entire red route - which was our goal being that we needed it to get back to our hotel after visiting Park Guell and La Sagrada (also through Viator). So my only dissatisfaction is perhaps not receiving specific enough instructions as to which operator Viator uses being that I didn't realize there is more than one bus line that runs the same routes. It was a bit stressful being told we couldn't use the first bus and then also having to fiddle with the wifi to call up the tickets. The lady handling all this on the bus, however, was so very nice and patient with us being that it took one or two stops till we got everything straightned out. I'd highly recommend using the bus as a great way to get around. Only wish we'd have had another full day to make use of a 2-day ticket for additional sightseeing!
