  • "In hindsight this was not the best option and as we did in other cities such as Athens and Rome we would have been better off hiring a van and driver ." See review

Worth the tour of the city. However a tip for travellers that a day is not enough in Barcelona. The bus has multiple languages to listen to while driving. A bit slow but we were strapped for time so maybe felt so.

It's not a 10 min walk from cruise terminal

The cruise passenger ships dock at Terminals A,B,C and D. The hop on hop off bus, orange route is at least 30-35 min walk and the green route an extra 10 mins. Need to catch the cruise shuttle bus costing 3 euro one way or 4 euro return. Drops you at the orange route Hop on Hop off bus. The bus tour route was interesting but the point to join the bus is certainly a lot longer than a 10 min walk.

The bus was a flexible way to see Barcelona with many stops at important sites however please be aware of schedule constraints. We needed to take a taxi from the ship terminal to the cathedral as we had 1.5 hours before our scheduled tour which was not sufficient as we had to change from one bus line to another.

Barcelona is a beautiful city full of wonderful things to see. We were on a cruise so we were limited to the length of time that we had in the city. Even though we had two days for visiting. we were unable to get off and explore the many sights we wanted to visit. It is a very large city with a lot of people and traffic to deal with.

This is a great way to see a lot of a huge city! Pre-purchasing the voucher saved a lot of time. Barcelona is beautiful and impossible to do in a day. Unfortunately thats all the time we had and the hop-on hop-off feature made it easy to see as much as we could in the short time we had.

Can't beat the City Tour Hop on Hop Off. From the cruise port, we walked to the Port Vell pickup location, took Hop On Hop Off to Sagrada Familia for a tour and then back on the bus from there. Their stop is right across the street from Sagrada Familia.
