Great Experience for one day in Barcelona
Jessica_R
, Jul 2022
The bus hit all the must see spots. Buses came very frequently and we never waited. We were there for one day while on a cruise. Book tickets for La Sagrada Familia in advance. We couldn’t get in because we waited until we got there. If you’re only there for a day, skip seeing Park Guell. It took too long to walk there and there wasn’t much to see.

Having to see camp now...

Having to see camp now and some other great sites. The experience was one of a kind and the description was top notch. It was good there was language translation on the bus as it made it easy to understand the significance or each site

Awesome way to explore the city!

Excellent way to explore Barcelona! We took the 7:00pm catamaran and it was totally with the add on. 48 hours may be worth the money to be less time crunched if you have yours booked at any of the spots.

Okay to see the sights but could be better
Christopher_J
, Jun 2022
The audio guide could have given more information about the sights. The bus stop locations could have been more clear on the map (maybe a link to the actual location) as it was difficult to navigate (especially the parc guell stop as there were no directions on to and from park to the bus stop). The catamaran tour was a bit boring and wasn't worth the extra

Great way to see the area to know what the options are. So easy to hop off and visit any stop and hop on the next bus when you are done. Catamaran is a great bonus!

Disappointed
Molly_H
, Jun 2022
The bus was fine if you get on first thing in the morning. By 10:30 am it was full and there were no seats. The loop was supposed to take 2 hours but it took 2 hours 45 minutes. Getting to the catamaran on time didn't happen for the early boat because the bus took more time than expected. And then the 2:30 and 4:00 boats didn't arrive due to mechanical issues.

The bus was clean and punctual. Easy to see where the stops were and proximity to sites. I wish the buses ran in the opposite direction also.

We have done Hop On / Hop Off in at least 10 cities around the world. This was by FAR the most disappointing.
DONALD_M
, Jun 2022
We were hoping for live, on the bus, tour guides to help us understand the sites we were seeing. The prerecorded narration that used the on board audio (earbuds provided) was very, very limited and disappointing.

I could not go due to COVID; Viator kept my money
Tomika_A
, Jun 2022
I got Covid, ask this company for a credit and they denied me. The irony is that I own a travel service and have a membership in the thousands and constantly used by eater. I will think twice about using them in the future or recommending them to my clients due to their inflexibility.

It was good but you must go early so you have time to finish route, and get off at some stops to explore the city.
