What You Can Expect

City Sightseeing Barcelona Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Tour Barcelona by hop-on hop-off bus

Simply hop aboard the open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus and set off to explore the ancient, medieval and modern sights of beautiful Barcelona.

Sit back into your comfortable seat and enjoy the 360-degree views and informative onboard audio commentary as you weave your way through Barcelona's elegant avenues, pretty squares, medieval lanes and palm-lined waterfronts.

Switch between the three different bus routes as you wish to explore different areas and aspects of the city, and stay aboard for each full 2-hour or 40-minute loop to gain an overview of the city’s sights and landmarks.

When you’re ready, hop off at any of the total of 44 stops and explore the attractions by foot, at your leisure. Perhaps meander around the medieval alleys of the Gothic Quarter; stop off to visit the extraordinary UNESCO-World Heritage-listed La Sagrada Familia church designed by the late, great architect Antoni Gaudi; or soak up the lively atmosphere, shops and street theater along the vibrant Las Ramblas.

Alternatively, hop off to visit some of Barcelona’s cultural hotspots, such as the Picasso Museum, or to take a stroll around Port Olímpic, the picturesque palm-dotted marina crowned by giant copper fish sculpture by Frank Gehry. These are just a sprinkling of the many things you can see and do during your hop-off hop-on tour! 


Your City Sightseeing pass gives you unlimited travel on all three routes for your choice of 1 or 2 days. Buses depart from each stop every 10 to 25 minutes. See the Itinerary for a list of stops on each of the three routes.

Nice tour. Traffic was very bad and tour sort of slow.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

This an excellent way to see the highlights of the city and review all the stops for sightseeing. Audio is helpful as information about each stop is shared. Top tier of the bus is best place to snap photos.

We took the two day option, which worked out really well. We took a different route each day. We used the bus as a fact finding mission first to get our bearings and then worked out where we would like to revisit.
