Barcelona City Tour is the 'Hop on & Hop off' service of this Spanish city. Our service offers you two routes to get to know and explore Barcelona from our bus but also letting you go on and off as many times as you wish to go all over the city on your own. Admire the architectural beauty of Sagrada Familia, a work by the great Antoni Gaudi and symbol of Barcelona; go for a walk at Park Guell that joins nature and designs; contemplate La Pedrera and la Casa Batllo, two Modernist jewels at Passeig de Gracia; go all over the labyrinthine streets of Barrio Gotico; fall in love with Montjuic Mountain and Palau Nacional, amongst others. Enjoy Barcelona with us!

Given that Barcelona is a busy tourist city, I was disappointed at the slow speed of the bus, obviously the city is busy and the bus is limited by traffic, but the time it takes to move around the route is pretty slow. As the...More

This regular service double deck bus tour gives a clear overview of the city; condensed, but still at the customer's pace. Some bus stops bit far from the attraction (e.g. Park Güell), but overall convenient, friendly and properly organised.

El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble
authenticity protrudes from the many independent
record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day

Your hotel concierge will likely be helpful. No concierge? The front desk clerks usually have them. If still no success, Google Barcelona City Tour closest bus location. Hope this helps! Have fun!!!
