This was an excellent choice to see Barcelona. Would suggest a hop on/hop off the day of arrival to get a lay of land and see the city in short time period to allow for selections of sites to revisit later. The stations were easy to locate using their map and guide. We missed our first tour on date of arrival due to weather delay in USA arriving 3 hours late so this option on date of arrival would have been perfect. Booking through the app was easy and have best discount

We took the 48 hour pass, and did the 2 different routes on 2 separate days. The routes are perfect, taking you exactly where you want to go, to see all the attractions of Barcelona, and you can get off to see things, and go back on when you want. It's the best way to see a city as far as I'm concerned. Some of the speakers don't always work, and you have to fiddle around with your earphones, but on the whole or was fine

Marlon was such an awesome guide: very knowledgeable, fun and informative - he showed us and explained so much about the wonderful areas of the old town and Gothic Quarter in a really entertaining way. It was such an enjoyable tour, highly recommended

Our guide was amazing! Her name was Jana and you could really feel her love for Barcelona. She was full of information and very friendly! She spoke perfect English and we could have listened to her all day! Highly recommend!

Lovely way to see the City. Buses were very regular and the routes were great - an opportunity to see all the major sites.
