Barcelona Bus Turístic Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Discover Barcelona at your own pace and get a real flavour for the iconic city courtesy of this double-decker bus tour. You can hop on and hop off at more than 30 stops covering three different routes meaning you can create your own itinerary.

Much more than a city tour, a Barcelona Bus Turístic Ticket allows you to hop-on and off at any of the stops throughout the city, giving you the freedom to explore, sightsee or visit attractions before boarding the next bus to continue your tour.

What's more, the tour combines three sightseeing routes around the city stopping at over 30 different attractions and locations, all of which are conveniently situated.

Plus, on board the bus you can enjoy guided commentary through your individual earphones while Turisme de Barcelona Representatives will also be on hand to answer any questions.
