In addition to the open top, the buses also have an electric roof on top for use in the event of rain. The buses are adapted for people with limited mobility and are fitted with anatomical seats and heating on both decks. They also have an attendant aboard to help you with anything you may need.

To complete your experience select the option that includes a 1-hour catamaran cruise along the city coast.

We travelled the green route in its entirety first, got off and had lunch then jumped back in to see the orange route. A must see on the green route is the Sagrada Familia, and the bust stops just across the street from it! The orange print took us to a Montjuïc and the Tram ride over the Port of Barcelona which was awesome and My hubby's favorite! We tried the other bus company and we're very disappointed to be told we were late at the bus stop so we can't use our ticket. We had a 2-day ticket and it said the last tour was at 7pm and we tried to "hop on" for an afternoon ride before 5pm!!. We sat down and had coffee and saw their other bus leave the bus stop!!! Why didn't they tell us we could have hopped on the other bus?!!

Easy to use, you can hop on the bus at any of their stops, once you are on there is someone watching to scan your electronic ticket and issue you with a paper version, headphones for an audio guide on the bus which has 15 languages and a map should you chose this. It is really easy to use, just remember which buses to look for as there are 2 different lines which cover different routes. This bus is red and follows a green and orange route. Great value for money and you can get on and off when you like. Buses run all day from 9am-8pm ish. It is great to see the city and worth a 2 day ticket.

Every city break I go on i make sure to explore the city on a hop on hop off bus because it's the best was of finding out interesting facts and see all the hidden gems of the city. I'm so glad I booked a 48 hours ticket as there were 2 different routes to explore. I had plenty of time to visit attractions at most stops during the 2 days of using hop on hop off. Definitely recommended.
