Our Opinion

The Barcelona hop-on hop-off bus tour, is a great way to catch Barcelona in a few hours.

You can see and learn, with the audioguides, essential information on all the important places and monuments of the city. Depending on your preferences, you can either stop to visit or tell yourself that you will have to return to this or that place. It is at the same time, a spotting and a discovery of the city.

We love being out in the open-bus to experience the city even closer and take pictures. We like the rapidity to go from one attraction to another without wasting time looking for orientation.

For children as for adults it is quite fun and finally frankly practical. We can only recommend this experience.



In 2019 we enhance your experience! Visit more for less! now offers you combined tickets offering both the Barcelona bus and skip the line tickets to visit most known attractions. It could hardly be easier to discover the city.

  • City Pass - This is the best bargain of the moment to visit Barcelona and it counts!  It includes visits to the Sagrada Familia, to the Guell Park but also the hop-on hop-off bus for one or two days, your ticket to and from the city centre to the airport and 20% off for many other monuments and museums of the city. Think about your visit dates and hours before you buy it because it will be requested.

The other combined tickets with always the open-bus and the visit of a monument with skip the line ticket :
