Have you thought about booking a Private Hop-on Hop-off Tour Bus in Barcelona? These comfortable and colourful buses are usually for hop-on hop-off tours, but can also be hired privately for large groups visiting the city. 

Organising group activities, private tours, and guides for large groups in Barcelona is one of our specialties. We’re always looking for something great to offer our clients, and new ways to showcase our favourite city. We’re thrilled to be able to provide this twist on the classic sightseeing bus tour.

Private Open Top Bus: a hop on hop off tour

The public hop-on hop-off buses sell individual tickets that stick to their specific routes and they stop at every bus stop on their route. 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 buses privately.

When you hire the bus privately, you can take a tour for 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 where everyone can join 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 buses, so that no member of your team misses out on the fun.

The Secret to Navigating Barcelona

No matter what you think about the hop-on hop-off buses, they are a great way to get around a city. Another big plus of these buses is that they have access to roads and lanes that regular cars and buses can’t access, meaning you’ll get even closer to the main sights.

Contact us to book a Private Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour to take in all the spectacular sights.

Multilingual Guides Onboard

When the public takes the open-top hop-on hop-off tour bus, they have headphones to hear the tour commentary. With a private hire, there will be tour guides on board with you. You can’t ask a recording a question about what you’re seeing, so having guides on board adds something extra special to the experience.

Whether you have one 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 onboard guides speak English, Spanish and Catalan. For other languages, please ask us and we can make arrangements.
