It was very nice!!! weather was absolutely beautiful and having the two days package was very helpful. I would recommend this service to anybody.
Very good. Time well spent getting an overview of Barcelona. Commentary excellent.
We really enjoyed this tour. Took you all around the city, even the outskirts of Barcelona that we wouldn't have seen otherwise. Well worth the money in our opinion. If you do this bus, you don't really need to do the Barcelona Card.
We found these 3 bus Hop-on Hop-off tours allowed us to get a real feel for Barcelona City and its culture. You can get off and get back on as many times as you like during the day and although we didn't have time to get off and see all the major points of interest, the bus commentry was a great help in infoming us along the way (although we found problems with some of the earphone connections within the bus). Highlights for us were the 'Park Guell' and the 'Sagrada Famillia' Cathederal - sights not to be missed.
The tour through Barcelona was very well done and very informative. Unfortunately, due to the crowds it was impossible to see important places such as Segrada Familia, but otherwise we got a chance to see the entire beautiful city.
Awesome stops. Good people. One bus had audio problems. Otherwise was highlight of my stay. Would be good to allow cell phone ticket presentation or scanning
The hop-on-hop-off tour is the best way to see the main highlights of Barcelona! I would highly recomend this to anyone who doesnt have too many days to spend in the city but would like to see as much as possible.Barcelona is an amazing city!!!And this bus allowed us to see all we wanted in a space of a day!Definitely the best way to see the best sights Barcelona has to offer.
This was an awesome tour - highly recommend it.
Buses were on schedule all the time - and never oversold - so we were able to get a seat above at all times.
Great way to see the city of Barelona in 2 days!
For anyone visiting an unfamiliar city for the first time, and lacking a personal guide who really knows the city, the Hop-on Hop-off tour bus is by far the best way to get a feel for the city. At least the parts of the city of interest to most tourists. You get the most tour for your money and unlike formal or structured group tours, there are really no time restraints. You do not feel that you are pressured to take a quick loo, a photo or two and hop back on the tour bus to move on to your next destination.
My wife and I bought a two day pass and our initial circuit on the green and blue routes (there is also a green route which we did not take until our second day) and for the first time around, we stayed on the bus the entire route. We did this with the intent of noting those stops on the map which we would want to hop off and spend some time exploring on the next go around and on the second day.
The buses are double decker so sure, weather permitting, why not go up top? It's better for shooting photographs. On our visit to Barcelona the mornings were a little on the cool side and so the second day, as we already knew where we wanted to go, and the upper deck will tend to fill up faster than the lower one, we simply stayed below.
The audio narration (with the free supplied ear buds and the selection of languages) gives a good overview of each "destination" as you approach it. This helped us to mark notes of interest on our map and travel notebook.
The buses run very frequently (every few minutes, it seems) and thus getting off at any of the stops, assures you a quick return to the route when you're ready to continue. At one of our get off points, we walked to the next one before reboarding. Don't rule this out as it offers a great chance to see the sights between the stops as well as those just around it.
Don't visit Barcelona without taking advantage of this great touring method.
Lots to see on these routes and the frequency of the buses was outstanding.
This was a great value for the price and very convinient to see the whole city.
