A must in any city. The first approach that will provide the knowledge of the structure of the city and will enable enjoying it in fact.
There were two tour buses in Barcelona, and this one we bought from Viator is the Barcelona CityTour. For a great overview of Barcelona, this is an efficient way to familiarize one's self with the city. There are two routes, East and West and we rode first on the East route and started with the Gothic Cathedral. We also went later to see the other sites, and the tour ends at about 8 PM. The ticket we bought was for 2 days and so the next day, we used the buses to see the West route. I also later wanted to see the "Tibidabo" on the East route but it was getting late in the day and I wanted to take nice pictures while it was still bright. So, I just got a taxi to bring me to the stop number 14 of the bus and from there rode the tram to the funicular which goes up the Tibidabo mountain.
There is wi-fi available on the buses, but be forewarned that you have to sign up for this while still at home because they will email you back a passcode. So, make sure you try to sign up first on-line for wi-fi if u want to avail of that service.
A great facility, the buses came regularly and the staff were both informative and friendly.
Great tour as usual, this is our fourth year using your services and was very well organized .
The only comment i would like to make is that you should advise your costumers , of some of the closed ,or under renovations monuments . This year the two most important monuments were under renovations.
Great job guys.

I would recommend the Hop-on, Hop off tour to anyone and don't be deceived by the east to west route. It covers the entire city and has lots of drop off points. We enjoyed this alot and took real advantage of the ability to get a great explaination for each stop to determine if we wanted to hop off. Only disadvantage was we could not use our voucher at any stop and had to take a taxi to stop one to get on the bus, when there was a stop 1 block from our hotel.
Saw so much of Barcelona that we would otherwise not have seem. A brilliant tour.
Loved the ease of the hop on, hop off tour! We were jet-lagged and decided to ride it once around and decide where to get off the next time. It was perfect. It's a lovely city and we had a great time there. Can't wait to go back to Barcelona!
The bus was perfect for our first day in Barcelona. This gave us an idea of the city and what we wanted to visit the next day. It was easy to hop on and off the bus and the explanation of what we were seeing was very informative. Perfect way to see it all with a short amount of time.
You can see many different areas of the city in an inexpensive and organized manner.
We went on the East and West tours. The tours were thorough,hitting all the major attractions. The bus was comfortable and the bus stops were in the right spots. The narration was very good.
We were in Barcelona for 6 days. We did the 2 day pass for the hop on hop off. We loved sitting on the top for get great photos. Also very nice having the audio tour to inform you of the sites. Very convenient to hop off and see the sites. Loved it!!
Found this tour very good, just had to present voucher on board.gave us a good overview of Barcelona.
I wish we had done this on day 1 in Barcelona, it would have saves a LOT of walking and we would have known where the best shopping was without wandering around. Very convenient and full of information!
Great to do this tour on first and second day. First day got to know where places of interest to us were, and second day hopped on an off as we wanted. We even discovered that the Spanish Village was only 15 minutes from where we were staying. Excellent audio, although the ear phones kept falling out. Very worthwhile.
Excellent! The service could not have been better. Lucky for us it stopped right outside our hotel making it even more useful.
Really enjoyed the tour and the fact we could get on and off. The audio is very valuable. If I could give one suggestion, it would be to stop now and then so that everyone can take the photos you indicate would be good to have. It just keeps going and we never got a decent photo from the bus. Well worth the price. Glad we did it. We would never dream of taking a tour bus on a vacation.
Great way to see Barcelona. Recommend starting early in morning and then switching to other route midday so you get to take advantage of both routes.
