Stop 4 instructions were good, but there was a closer stop 5 which was nearer to embarkation. Again due to time restraint by cruise line only about 1/4 of West tour was completed, Cruise shore time restrictions was the most frustrating for us. Second time for hop on and hop off in Barcelona, more time was given in 2015, service is good and helpful, maps and earpieces provided. tks

These hop-on hop-off are the only and best way to get around madrid, or any other city. You probably should buy the 2 day. no need for expensive taxi. just great!

This is the perfect way to spend one day in Barcelona, especially if you have already been to Le Segrada, the Gaudi apartment and park. If not, just hop off and do so. There are two lines, an orange and a green. When you take them both, you see the entire city from a double decker bus....feeling the cool breezes all the way. It's perfect, and economical.

I chose to take one of 11,000 taxi's from the ship direct to Gaudi's Familia. I had purchased a ticket on-line for a 10 AM entry, and what a wonderful amazing building. From there, I got on the hop on hop off bus. Barcelona ended up being a favorite city.. very clean, and the bus drove thru all the streets of importance. I rode both routes available, then got off to have a wonderful lunch and Sangria , from there it was a walk down the main street full of crowds and sights, and another taxi back to the ship. All the Hop on Hop off Bus tours in any city is highly recommended.. with head phones in all different languages provided, and makes it easy to see the sights and decide where and when you want to get off.

Excellent way to a lot in one day of shore excursion. We enjoyed viewing the city from the bus and had time to get off at a few places we definitely wanted to see close up. The tour consists of two routes each taking around 2 hours. What a beautiful city with marvelous architecture. A very enjoyable day which made me want to visit Barcelona again for a longer period.

The very high frequency of buses and the easy-to-read route maps made this a convenient way to get around Barcelona. My wife and I never had to wait for a seat on any bus, even though occupancy was high. Buses were comfortable, staff were helpful, and the overlapping routes were scenic.

Very easy to use. Very easy route maps to help us know which bus to catch and where to return to the bus. Loved the evening ride with the colorful water fountains and monuments.
