Book a private Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus Tour for your group in Barcelona. These comfortable, colourful busses are usually for hop-on-hop-off tours, but they can also be hired privately for large groups visiting Barcelona.

Organising group activities, private tours and guides for large groups in Barcelona is one of our specialities. We’re always looking for the next best thing to offer our valued clients and new ways to show people our favourite city. We’re thrilled to be able to offer this twist on the classic sightseeing bus tour.

Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus, Your Way

The public hop-on-hop-off busses are sold by individual tickets and must stick to their specific routes. They also have to stop at every stop on their route to allow people to hop on and off! All this stopping and starting can mean that a one- or two-hour trip around the city can take twice as long. This is not the case when you hire one of these awesome busses privately.

When you hire the bus privately, you can take a tour of up to three hours and see the sights that you really want to see from the best seats in the house. No need to worry about other members of the public standing up and down and getting in the way of your photos!

Note: The prices on this page are for the three-hour tour which is the minimum hire time. To hire the busses for longer, please contact us for a personalised quote.

Team Building: Space for Almost 100 guests

With space for up to 86 people (61 on the upper floor, 25 on the lower floor), this is a group activity in Barcelona that everyone can take part in. Book it as part of your team building day or as an extra special mode of group transport in Barcelona.

Suitable for all seasons, the bus has a roof that can be placed over the top level for those colder, rainier days.

For even larger groups, we can organise multiple Open-Top busses so that no member of your team has to miss out on the fun.

The Secret to Navigating Barcelona

Love them or hate them, the hop-on-hop-off busses are a great way to get around a city and take in the highlights. A huge bonus is they have access to roads and lanes that regular cars and busses can’t pass through, meaning you’ll still get closer to the big sights in comfort and style. Book the Private Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus Tour to have the best chance to see all the sights.

Guides on Board

When the public take the Open-Top Bus, they have headphones through which they listen to the tour commentary. With private hire, there will be tour guides on board with you!

You can’t ask a recording questions about what you’re seeing, so having guides physically on board adds something extra special to the experience. Whether you have one question or one hundred questions, our experienced, multilingual guides will be right there to help you. You can also ask for their advice about the route and the best places to go once your trip is over.

All on-board guides speak English, Spanish and Catalan. For other languages, please ask us and we can make arrangements.
