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!

Decided on big red bus tour as only there for a day. To begin weather was awful so decided to stay on bus and just do the rounds of the city. Usual commentary not on board. Unable to sit on inside seats upstairs due to the rain. Decided to hop off at Barcelona football club. Took the tour of the... More

Get a two day pass if you can. We got a super late start on day 1 and having a second day to explore helped us go at our own pace. I've done these double decker hop on, hop off tours in other cities and per usual, its a great way to learn about the city and get around to... More

It turned out to be the artistic tour which took us to see the buildings and structures which make Barcelona famous especially the works of Gaudi.

Both myself and my partner arrived with no real knowledge of Barcelona as a city and the way it's laid out. We found the HOHO bus a great way to familiarize ourselves with this great city.

I am probably being a bit unfair here. Having been to Barcalona before there was not much this tour could show me that I had not already seen..... BUT - If you have never been before then this is the thing for you especially on a Sunday morning. It takes a while for the city to awaken and taking this... More

We bought our tickets in Place Catalunya and boarded the bus on day one and toured around no problem. The commentary is very boring and sounds like it was recorded in the 1960s. The voice is emotionless and flat and the content is aimed at nursery school children I'd say. On day two we boarded the bus at the same... More

We bought a two-day pass online as recommended and glad that we did because it was no hassle to board. We found the audio and the stops of both the green and orange line okay. Several stops should be re-evaluated especially during the winter time due to complete lack of interested individuals e.g. Port Vell, World Trade Center, ...). English... More

This was a great option for our family to take on all the sights in the short amount of time we were in Barcelona! Highly recommend for a family with young children!

I'm standing at stop 13 on the green line as we speak waiting for the next bus. Why am I waiting? Because the moment we stepped in front of the door of the waiting bus, the bus pulled away. The driver and the tour guide looked at us as if to say "too bad". Well, too bad for you. I'll... More

Very dirty buses. Low qualified staff. Routines boring. Little punctuality. Very expensive service. I do not recommend it.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
