Highlights
  • Determine your own itinerary with a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus ticket
  • Enjoy unlimited travel for one or two days, depending on your schedule
  • Receive a complimentary coupon book with discounts to many top attractions
What to expect
  • 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 different bus routes as you wish to explore different areas and aspects of the city, or stay aboard for the full loop to gain an overview of the city’s sights and landmarks. When you’re ready, hop off at any of the conveniently located stops and explore the attractions on 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 or to take a stroll around Port Olímpic, the picturesque palm-dotted marina crowned by a 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 routes for your choice of one or two days. Buses depart from each stop regularly throughout the day. See the Itinerary for a list of stops on each of the routes.

I always hit the tour bus when I visit a foreign city. Its the best way to load up on pictures and see things to find out whether you want to get out and explore more. This time was no different.

I had a nice tour in Barcelona and the buses take you to most of the major sites. The ticket lady on the blue bus with also blue hair was very nice she asked where I was from and what part and then she explained to her colleagues in their language and they all seemed genuinely interested.

The system was fine, the English explanations were good enough but I could not tell which building the speaker was referencing. The bus had to be replaced, but I will say the trains fed occurred quickly.

It is very difficult to find the bus stops. The route map is very confusing. I’ve been walking and standing around Arc de Triomphe for almost an hour and the bus is yet to be seen.

This is a great way to see Barcelona both tours have around 10 hop on hop off stops taking around 2 hours each and the routes take in both historic and modern sights with good clear commentary. Would definitely recommend.

A great way to see the city. A two day ticket cost €40 per person which is slightly expensive, but it allowed us to take in both routes. Each route lasts approximately two hours and provides a good overview of the lay out of the city.

My experience today was horrible. All the buses were overcrowded with people. The tour guide on my bus was very friendly and even got off the bus to organize the crowd outside. I felt sorry for him and the bus driver. I do not know how he did it, but he was able to manage it. He has a lot of patience and speaks in many languages (That is very surprising). Please give him my thanks; his name is Javier, and he was wearing a brown cap. Thanks for being patient and understanding, Javier! The bus company needs to do something about it since it is not fair for anyone to go through this. As a tourist, all you want to do is to visit and explore quietly. My family and I have tickets for tomorrow, but the reality is that we are not sure if we should use the service again since we do not want to have the same horrible experience that we had today. We waited more than one hour for the bus. Would you mind adding more busses? I do not think it is problematic. Would you please do something? Thanks from the Peter Family from the USA.

I booked a two day hop and off bus tour. It has I think at least 8 languages which you can listen to. I can vouch for the Spanish and English version, they were good. This thing has multiple routes which take you to many places throughout Barcelona. The two day for me was worth it because I hopped off and did spend some time in the attractions which I definitely couldn't squeeze in one day. Better than catching multiple cabs or trains. If anyone asks me what to do in Barcelona, you best believe I'm recommending this tour bus.

Well, I haven't even started the bus tour because I was waiting half an hour at stop 10 of the Green Route, opposite the Glories tower, only to see on the stop that it is not in use and we had to walk around the corner. Yet the company's own app did not initiate this in the real time map. I'll post an updated review when we actually get to use the service but for now, this is to inform others to check the sign on the stop, rather than relying only on the app. My very happy right now, having paid for a family of four and we have only this afternoon to make use of it!

Great tour. Loaded with stops with unbelievable sites. We took a taxi into the heart of the city and quickly found out it was a mistake. Central Barcelona is very walkable with hidden treasures around every turn, however some of the best sites too far to walk and the bus got us there easily. All the buses were clean. Friendly staff. I could actually hear the narrator. Best of all I could charge my phone between stops.
