Return Details

You may disembark at any of the available stops.
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.

This was our first time in Barcelona and booking this Hop On Hop Off bus tour was definitely worth it. We were only in Barcelona for 3 days , so using the bus routes that were offered we were able to plan our visits. Strongly recommend for first time visitors to this beautiful city.

We have seen these hop-on-hop-off bus and boat tours in various cities over the years and never tried them. Finally we decided this might be the best way to get a sense of Barcelona’s top sights and geography on our first day. It was a great experience!

Good bus but bad experience for us
Karen_R
, Aug 2022
We toured Sagrada Familia and then hopped on the Hop On Hop Off bus. We rode it two stops to Park Guell. What we didn’t know was that it dropped us at the bottom of a very steep hill with a long walk! My husband cannot walk that far! So we had to take a taxi, which still couldn’t take us all the way up. We walked and finally made it to the park. After being in a short line was saw the beautiful park. After e left we came done the hill, got lost and couldn’t find the Blue Line station! We waited forever for a taxi and finally got one after an hour! So we hardly got to use our ticket! We are still in Barcelona! I hope we can use it on another day!

We registered with the apple wallet they gave us tickets on 1st ride We lost the tickets for the remainder of the booking and we where escorted out of the bus although we paid Such a unprofessional bus company it is a shame that on the buses they have all the electronic equipment except the ones to help you if you have a problem What a shame for the management and ownership of a company to treat so badly customer’s arriving from another continent Shame on them !! Viator tried to help but after 30 min of cell discussion no luck…!

Trouble with the passes
Robert_S
, Jul 2022
The tour itself was good and very informative however one agent let us on the bus before printing our passes from the app and when we boarded the first time the other agent who was scanning passes got mad at us that she had to print our passes. This should have been better coordinated.

Top deck was a great spot to take in the blue line. Wish we had time to do the red line too! Easy access and recorded narrative was good. Thanks!

The perfect way to see all of Barcelona on a first visit, and particularly a first day. We took the blue line and switched to the red and got a great overview of the city.

Green route gave a good view of major attractions. Only criticism was that it was a hot day and although there was the option to close a roof on the upper deck of the bus, we were wilted after the ride.

Worked well. Wish they had bottled water since it was very hot. The bus speed was slow but that did not bother me too much.

Don’t hesitate on hopping off to go get a snap of the view you wanted - another bus will get you. Overall worth it but make sure you’re positive of when you’ll use it so you don’t buy two days and need only one.
