Cheated out if day two of our 48 hour ticket.
Margaret_H, Nov 2022
We did not use the hop on hop off bus the first day of the 48 hours and when we went to use it the next day we were unable to use the ticket. I felt cheated! I feel we deserve a 50% discount.
Well worth it
Tanya_D, Nov 2022
This tour was well worth it. We especially enjoyed being able to hop off and site see, then hop on the next bus. We saw many parts of Barcelona that we would not have been able to see without the tour.
Barcelona trip.
Shona_B, Nov 2022
Easy to access. Frequent times. Efficient staff were very helpful if we were unsure. Maps provided. Audio easy to use.
DRIVERS DID NOT ALLOW BOARDING EVEN THOUGH THE BUS HAD SEVERAL FREE BEMCHES AVAILABLE (10+)
ESTHELA_E, Nov 2022
PLUS: Convenient way to see the city DOWNSIDE: I was very disappointed that in several occasions, we had to wait for the 4th bus because drivers were not allowing boarding even though there were at least 4+ free available benches, and more than 10 seats available . We waited at least 45 minutes playing this little silly game.
Best way to see the whole city!
Michelle_C, Oct 2022
Fun way to see the city! Catamaran ride was the highlight, just make sure you ask what time it runs, so you can plan the rest of your stops.
We bought a two day...
Jan_M, Oct 2022
We bought a two day package with the catamaran but only used one day. We were both too exhausted for a second day. It was awesome though.

Great way to see the city!
MARYJ_B, Oct 2022
The best way to see the city and points of interest to further explore. The bus was clean when we traveled in the morning. Audio tour had cheerful music in between attractions.

maryvil_R, Oct 2022
everything went very well. would have enjoyed it more if we had more time. would definitely go on it when i come back to Barcelona
Great tour
misty_p, Oct 2022
Loved this hop on hop off tour. I always like doing one of these in a new city to get an overview and then know where I want to explore more in depth!

Great way to experience the city!
Katrina_B, Oct 2022
Very convenient and fun way to tour! We did the 90 mins catamaran, it was ok, but the bus hop on and hop off was the best!! Drivers and bus ticket ladies were very friendly and helpful!!
Great way to see the city!
Linda_C, Oct 2022
Great way to get around town and jump off where you want. We enjoyed seeing all the areas where we wouldn't have even known about.
Great routes
Deb_L, Oct 2022
Great routes, nice that the company has split the route into two since there is so much to see in Barcelona. The sound system could be improved, though. Sound was not great, although the coverage was good.
Barcelona City Tour
Laurel_C, Oct 2022
What a convenient and easy way to get around Barcelona and see so many great sites! We would take this option again. Adding the catamaran cruise was the best addition to our city tour.
At your on time!!
Maritza_A, Oct 2022
It was very good, we went a couple of times to a different places and went to the trip in the catamaran. My recommendation is to buy this tour guide f you want to do things at your own time.
Touring Sagrada Familia...
Marissa_L, Oct 2022
Touring Sagrada Familia and Park Guell. Beautiful sights. The bus was easy to get to and the tour guides were very helpful.
Bus tour great way to see cory
Lurana_C, Oct 2022
Tour if the city is great. The two routes help as if you don’t want to see some things you don’t need to waste your time. This also comes with a catamaran tour the staff attending at the stops don’t know what is going on with that and as a result we missed being able to do that section of the tour. Found that disappointing as we were there and could Have gotten on one but we weren’t told that the one we were waiting for wasn’t working until it was to late
Had a very poor experience.
Marissa_d, Oct 2022
It was disorganized. No proper directions were given. Buses were late. Catamaran ride schedules provided were inaccurate, and there was no real direction provided on where to catch the catamaran ride. I wonder how people book that ride and were not actually able to take it. We paid for something we were not able to avail with.
Worth the time
David_K, Oct 2022
Only took one route but it was very informative. English audio was good. Easy to follow with map. Good overview of the city.
