The city is too big to see all the must see places on your own, but this trip makes for a great overview. We only got off once or twice to spend more time, so if possible with your schedule plan on two days to see it all.

I have booked with Viator in the past. I have booked in the USA and also Europe. Viator is always an excellent choice. The hop on hop off bus tour was a prefect way to see Barcelona. After finishing the entire route, we continued and go off on different stops throughout the city.

If you want to see Barcelona on a Panoramic scale this is the way to do it ! It was a bit chilly on our visit but I still sat on top, they have heaters for your feet but the views were incredible.
Yes I would do it again!

This is definitely the easiest way to see all of Barcelona. We chose both routes and covered the area of Barcelona. This made it much easier for the rest of the trip because we now knew were museums, restaurants, and sight-seeing places were located.
