Owner description: 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!

We booked a two day trip through their website and got a small discount, which was good. But our overall experience traveling with a toddler on a stroller was terrible. Some of the guides on the bus were really unfriendly and rude. We were asked to fold the stroller all the time we got into the bus which we did. But the one time we wanted to get into the bus with our sleeping baby secured in his stroller we were asked to take him out and still fold the stroller. Which i thought was absurd as there were no other strollers in the bus. The guide was really rude and told us to get off the bus, which we eventually did. We took the next bus with no problems at all. We had to wait at some stations for more than 30 minutes for the bus to come. Having travelled in many cities using the Bus tours company, this was definitely the worst experience. We wished we had booked with the other company, perhaps it would have been a better experience.

Four "Barcelona bus turistic" comes, while one "City Tour bus" arrives. When it comes it is full, they do not allow to take off. Also the next bus.

We did a one day hop on/hop off bus tour and really enjoyed it. We did not hop off too often. We simply went and saw everything and then spent the next 4 days exploring in more detail the sites we wanted to see. It was a great way to see all the major sites of Barcelona. The frequency of the buses is great and the commentary was really well done. Definitely worth it!!

Wonderful tour and very knowledgeable audio headsets provided in all languages. Buses ran on time and were clean. Staff was very helpful with any other questions you might have about Barcelona.

We found this a great way to see the city. Yes you do get queues at the big places like Park Guell and Sagrada Familia. But the next bus is only a few minutes away. We choose these simply because the routes fitted well with the p[laces we wanted to visit. No complaints really. You can also buy the tickets on the bus, so you do not need to go the Catalunya Square to start your trip.
