Had to catch the bus after taking the shuttle from the cruise ship ($6.00 pp round trip). Very poor instructions as to where to catch the bus. The instructions stated that we needed to redeem the certificate for the actual tickets at the address given. The address only stated the street name (long street). Thankfully the redemption booth was at the foot of the street. At the redemption center, they told us that we didn't need to redeem the tickets. These were our tickets. It all worked out, but poorly organized. Be advised that the whole routes (red or blue) takes about two hours (not counting stops). Very busy.

The Hop on Hop off Bus was a great way to travel around and see places. We wish there were more spots where you could cross over between routes so that you didn’t have to repeat large portions of your trip to get back to a starting point. We traveled on the blue line which included a major stop at La Sagrada. I would also cut out the long trek through the university.

On the first day the tour was fine and met expectations. On the second day it was another story on bus #2333 on Sept. 27th late morning. For a reason that was never communicated to passengers the bus did not go to the end of its usual tour Placa Catalunya and continued going around on the balance of the tour. Therefore we missed the connection to another line where we were supposed to meet friends who got very worried when we did not show up where we were supposed to meet them. The staff on board was unapologetic and did not care about us and other passengers who were going to the same place we were expected to. We lost a full 2 hours of our touring day on top of missing meeting friends. Not impressed at all by this recommendation.

It is a convenient method of seeing the city. Just found that we drove past interesting building and statues and there was no info given. Perhaps a bit more general info on the city to fill the quiet gaps.

5 | 2019-09-10

I would definitely recommend this tour. Well worth the price. Bus runs every couple minutes. Can stop at a sight you want to see and get back on. We had a 2 day pass. Spent the first day seeing the city and the 2nd day stopping at places we wanted to see.

The bus is a very inexpensive and convenient way to see Barcelona. The audio is very informative. You can get on and off as you please. The multiple routes offer a chance to see the whole city. Would use them again for sure.

The hop on hop off bus tour consists of multiple routes, the red, blue and green route. To complete them all would take you all day so a 1 day pass isn't really suitable if you want to hop on and off through out. We bought the one day pass and only completed one route unfortunately (we did stop throughout the tour). It's great to get an overall view of the city and go places you might not have originally thought to go to. It's an open top and there is aircon in the downstairs part which might help on a hot day.

Great value for money. Literally hop on and off when you see something you want to explore further. Good commentary. Buses were very frequent so didn't have to wait long if you did get off.

5 | 2019-08-05

IT was good. Busses were very full but all in all it was a good experience. The locations that it took you to were great.

An excellent way to see the majority of sights in Barcelona. We did all three routes and then decided what sites we wished to explore further.

Excellent day seeing the sights of Barcelona. Our guide Miguel helped us through the “heaviest thunderstorm he had ever experienced” and ventured out into the rain with those of us who wanted to go. Our bus driver Rafa managed treacherous conditions with skill - and then the sun came out again - as Miguel said it would!

This was a very worthwhile tour attraction that takes you all around the city of Barcelona with options to get off of the bus and explore various locations and landmarks

I always buy the inexpensive two-day ticket for the "Big Bus" whenever in a new city. Barcelona stretches for miles so the bus really was a perfect way to see all that was available, as well as just sit on the top deck and marvel at the Spanish architecture, as well as the urban 'busy-ness' of the city. It was wonderfully easy to hop off, head to a museum or whatever, and then know that another bus would be along sooner than later to take me to another adventure.

We we really enjoyed our third day in Barcelona on the hop on hop off bus. It was a great way to see the entire city!

This is probably the easiest way to get to see Barcelona. Our only complaint is that not all of the buses had working wifi.

This bus company oversold tickets, therefore there was a line around the block to catch the bus, and return on the tour. You would have to stand in line for a good hour in hot humid Barcelona. We got tired of waiting and continued our own tour on a taxi. We took taxis for rest of day. So we paid 34 euros for a 20 minute one way ride to venue. Not a good value.

We purchased 2 day hop on/off - it was worth every penny. There are 3 routes taking to all the main areas of the city. Lots of stops and lots of buses - we didn't wait more than a couple minutes at any stop. Great value!

Terrific way to get an overview of the city and get your bearings. Very well done. Never had to wait more than a few minutes for a bus.

5 | 2019-07-03

Buses are super efficient, they would go by every 5-10 minutes, it's a great choice to move around the city. Will take you to all the key places in Barcelona.

A very interesting bus tours, all over Barcelona. We saw a lot we missed by walking. A little fast driving, so pictures were limited.

We love using the local Hop On Hop Off bus service in soooo many cities we have visited. GREAT service to get oriented and see many aspects of a city.

We went round 1.5 after the first time we had decided what we wanted to see more of! If we come back then I think we’d do it again and drop off at several other ‘attractions’ Good clear commentary, The prebooked tickets were not of any particular benefit - in fact having to scan the before boarding meant we didn’t get a front seat! But a score of 80% isn’t bad! How about considering giving a bottle of water to each customer?

My family of 4 (2 teenagers) enjoyed the tour throughout the city of Barcelona. We did find the audio commentary lacking with minimal information given about the sights we were seeing. I have done two other hop on hop off tours in Rome and London and was disappointed in the lack of information we were told about the stops and the city. We only did the one line that included the Sagrada Basilica.

5 | 2019-05-13

We only had 2 days to see all of Barcelona as we were in transit between cruise an flight. NEVER been to Barcelona before and thought this was best way of getting to as many sites as possible. Weren't disappointed. Wish we had booked longer stay. This is a first class city and will make sure we will visit again. Great value for price.

A bit of a shaky start with long queues and a broken sound system (no audio guide) so had to wait for another bus. Once we got going though I really enjoyed it. Good tour information on the audio guide too. Only other drawback was the amount of people eating and drinking on the bus even though it was specified that food and drink wasn't allowed. Staff didn't seem that bothered but I didn't really want to see people stuffing their faces.

Have the opportunity to see the major sites in the city accompanied by audio with the headphones provided by the bus.

Great advantage rather than walking. Stops could be at better site in city but for price this is a must for Barcelona travel.

I always take Hop on Hop off tours when I am in a new city. I did this here, too, but I found that the buses were full, and sometimes it was only standing room, therefore no audio guide, no safety, not a pleasant experience. We were tired of walking. We would have like to sit down and enjoy. And the second thing I really did not like - not too many explanations, just a lot of elevator music. I would have liked to have rich commentaries for such a rich city.

Good way to see the city. We went around with our daughter who is into arts and she really enjoyed Barcelona.

We had a very good visit. The bus always I’m time. The descriptions of the different sites were always informative.
