Barcelona bus tours are great for travelers who want to combine some information with their transportation. Like many other large European cities, Barcelona has its own hop on, hop off bus for tourists. Instead of hopping on the Metro or the local bus, the hop on, hop off bus brings travelers between major tourist attractions all while providing information about Barcelona along the way.
These tour buses in Barcelona are especially popular on warm days, as visitors are trying to escape the heat. For visitors who would be less mobile, a trip on the Barcelona tourist bus will show you everything that you would see on a walking tour or bicycle tour, just from the comfort of your seat. Another benefit of choosing these bus tours as your means of transportation, instead of the Metro, is the opportunity to see everything between the big attractions. Instead of zipping by underground, travelers who choose bus tours get a more well-rounded picture of Barcelona.
These open-top Barcelona bus tours are also a great place to spend a sunny afternoon. If you’re tired after walking around the city, relax on one of the tour buses in Barcelona. Unlike other European cities, you can purchase tickets for either one or two days on the Barcelona bus tours. Instead of having to squeeze in sights on different parts of town, you will be able to hop on and hop off for two days and spend more time at your favorite attractions.
Ticket prices are different for adults and children, and for one or two days. For adults, the price for one day is roughly 21 euros and for two days is 27 euros. This is how the Barcelona tourist bus entices visitors to return the second day—they offer great value! Tickets for children come with an extra discount. The buses operate year-round, from 9 am until 6 pm seven days a week. The only days the buses don’t run are Christmas Day and New Years Day, but they may also follow holiday hours, so check with the concierge of your hotel or bus driver for any changes. A great way to efficiently move between museums, architectural marvels, and churches, the open-top bus tour is a pleasant surprise for many tourists.
