  • General information

    What is the difference between 24 hours / 48 hours tickets?

    All Barcelona City Tour tickets offer you the possibility to enjoy all the routes and stops of our tourist bus, with unlimited Hop On Hop Off access as long as your ticket is valid.

    • The 24-hour ticket is valid from the moment you validate your voucher when you board the bus for the first time. It is the best option for those travellers who board the bus in the middle of the day and want to continue enjoying our service for part of the next day.
    • The 48-hour ticket is ideal for longer stays in the city. It will allow you to access the bus as many times as you want for 48 consecutive hours from the moment you validate your ticket when you board the bus for the first time.

    Can I change route on the same ticket?

    Yes, you can. The ticket is valid for both routes, and you can hop on and off at any stop, provided you show a valid ticket.

    Where can I take the buses?

    You can board the bus at any of our stops. If you don’t already have a ticket, you can buy one on board.

    Where do the routes begin?

    The main stop for both routes is on Plaça Catalunya, in the city centre. However, you can catch the bus at any of the stops.

    Can I go and come back on the same bus?

    The Barcelona City Tour routes are circular, so you can return to the stop you began at or to any other stop at any time, but both circuits are always covered in the same direction. The Orange Route goes clockwise and the Green Route counter clockwise.
