great well worth the price, did it first day and got our bearings for the city after that 5 stars
The hop on hop off Bus tour is the BEST way to get around for a tourist! You are able to see everything and the explanation's of everything are top notch! Even telling you where to get off to see certain things and places to go (some tours DO NOT do that). The line ups were long however you did not really notice it because buses would come every 15 minutes so the wait wasn't that long, I think the longest time we waited was about 20 minutes. Definitely recommend the two day pass, there's no way you can fit all the sightseeing in one day (well worth the $$)
From the moment we departed from our rendez-vous at Plaza Catalunya, our guide Nuria began sharing so many interesting facts that I started taking notes while Nuria. (Trust me, that's a personal first!) This was categorically the best tour I have ever been on and worth EVERY cent. I especially loved that it was an afternoon trip ONLY. We left exactly at 3:00 pm for our 45-50 minute trip up to Montserrat. Our driver Jesus, even had bottled water if we wanted to purchase one. Upon reaching Montserrat and its stunning beauty, as a brief optional aside from the group, I and several others were able to board the day's last funicular (9 Euros, additionally) up the mountain and see the spectacular views (for 10 minutes. Back down the mountain to re-join the group to see the magnificent Basilica. By arriving in the afternoon, the crowds were greatly thinned out and it was just one more reminder of how I would only want to visit Barcelona and surrounding areas off season!! I enjoyed this tour so much that, upon return to my room, I immediately wrote Viator to give my compliments. With more time, I would have taken more of their trips. With the little I had, I am so thankful I did this one. Do it!!
Great, love the hop on hop off. Can see whatever you want when you want and for how long you want.
Oh it was well worth the price. We had the opportunity to see the whole of Madrid in so short a time. The North and South routes provided us the chance to see the major spots and interesting places in Madrid in the comfort of a tourist bus. The description of the tour guide was clear enough for us to appreciate the famous and historical tourist spots.
Both routes were wonderful , however the North to South Route won the prize. This is the only way to get to know a city and a perfect way to spend your first day there.
Exceptional. Have done it before and loved it both times. Plus wi-fi on buses.
I enjoyed the overview of Barcelona and, over two days, used the bus a great deal. The commentary was interesting, and made it easier to choose which sites we wanted to return to, again using the bus, and visit in-depth.
This is the best way to get to know and see Barcelona. First we took the bus all around the city to become familiar with the layout and then took it again to stop at the places we wanted to spend more time. It was great and very reasonable price. The second time around we made stops at the mountain to take the tram ride and then went on to the yacht club/beach area for lunch where there were many restaurants to choose from. This is an excellent system, I wish Chicago had something similar.
