We're telling all our friends that the Hop On, Hop Off is the way to go when you visit the various towns where the service is available. The audio headsets were just so so, but the service is a great way to see the surrounding city and get a feel for the town.

A great way of seeing some of the highlights that Barcelona has too offer in a limited amount of time.
We took the bus until we got to the centre and walked down La Rambla which leads back to the port whereupon the shuttle buses 3 Euros return per person runs you back to the cruise ships.
