Excellent service and commentary, No less satisfying than other similar tours that I have taken in other countries. To coin a phrase, it's the only way to fly when your'e not flying.

Informative with lots of different stops. Very good way to see Barcelona if your time is limited. Try to Baird the bus at one of the alternate stops and not stop 1 placa de catalunya. The ques are very long there

I highly recommended Hop on Hop Off Tour. You can get off and get on any designated stop you want. The operating hours are so long specially in the summer time.

Best way to see Barcelona. SO many stops and the bus was coming maybe no more than 7 minutes apart which was really great. The book provided by the employee on board worked very well since there is just so much to see it was very easy to follow along to plan our stops and touring. The ear buds and narration were great although on some of them they were a little loose and the sound had to be put way up. It was also nice that they also offered to purchase tickets to venues along the route and purchase right on the bus. So glad we gave ourselves 2 days in Barcelona to take in all the bus offered around town.

This is a great way to get an overview of the city--just staying on the bus for the entire circuit the architecture is stunning-- or to use as transportation from site to site for tours.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

This was far superior to the one in Madrid with very good historical explanations giving one good information. EG Gaudi, a huge architectural influence in the city, died in hospital after being hit by a tram and since 2012, bull fighting is illegal in Catalonia so bull ring no longer in use. You need at least two days to do all four lines properly, particularly if you want to get off and explore I would recommend that as there is much to see and explore in Barcelona.
