We never had to wait very long for a bus and the stops were conveniently located. Sitting on the second floor gave such a great view of the city and the first floor was also good to view the city when the second floor was too hot. We enjoyed listening to the recorded guided tour and the maps provided were easy to read.

I purchased the hop-on hop-off City Tours package with the 1 hour catamaran trip. I found out the day before my bus excursion was to start that the catamaran was going to be closed until August 4 and we were leaving August 2nd. I called Viator support to get a refund for the extra money that I was charged for the 1 hour catamaran ride. The person I spoke to was extremely difficult to understand and I was told that I was within the 24 hour window and I could not cancel. I was not asking to cancel as we still wanted to do the hop-on hop-off bus. All I wanted was the $27 extra I paid for the catamaran refunded. His response was I will send a message to the operator and someone would get back to me. I have returned home and still have not had a response. We went to the City Tours booth and were told to try going to the dock where the boat was to leave from. We did this and the gentleman that helped us told us that this particular tour should have never been sold since the catamaran was not operational. He apologized and booked us on their 1.5 hour catamaran tour. I should have been able to get this resolved through Viator since this is who I purchased the product through. I am very disappointed at the lack of support that I received from Viator on resolving this issue. If I had not taken it upon myself to try to get some answers to resolve my issue I would have been out the extra money that I spent for the catamaran portion of this tour. SHAME ON YOU VIATOR! Up to this point I never worried that I would get what I paid for from Viator. This will make me be much more cautious in using Viator. Getting a quick or any resolution for a problem that I did not create is non-existent. Truthfully I feel like I should get the money back just for my aggravation. If it had been my mistake that is one thing, but this was your mistake for allowing me to purchase a product that you could not supply!

Good experience. The woman who helped us redeem our vouchers on the bus was kind and patient as she had to do some digging to get them to work. The narrative on the bus in several languages into a headset is a great benefit. We did not use it as much as we had thought we would but do not regret buying the 2-day pass. Plenty of spots and great points of interest.

We had booked for 7/23/22 tour with catamaran but was told that the both boats had burned the night before and that I would to notify whoever I got tickets from for refund for 4 people… we were very excited for the catamaran so it was very disappointing…

Excellent way to see the city. Buses run very often so if there is a line, it moves quickly. Not all audio works every time so check it as soon as you are seated. Share a headset if not working till you can move. Notify driver. Well worth the price!

It’s such an easy way to orientate yourself with a city. A 24 hour pass is adequate for a short stay but a 48 hour pass allows more flexibility to cover all routes.

Where’s the catamaran?
Jacqueline_M
, Jul 2022
So, this was sold with free catamaran trip but we couldn’t find the boat . Maybe I’m just being dim but I asked when I got off at the stop and the guide grudgingly pointed across the road but, when we got to the harbour, there was nothing to indicate where to go or wait? A wee sign with the bus logo might have been nice or som info on the ticket. So we hung around for ages feeling stupid and by that time we needed to get back before the buses stopped. As it happened, the busses at the end of the day were all full and we were lucky to get on.

Everyone was fascinated, the service, no long lines or waiting, but the best of all the warming welcome of the employees, always willing to help and whatever questions you have. They are very professionals, I totally recommend.

Horrible experience! The bus broke down! I want a refund
Mike_M
, Jul 2022
The bus was old and not very well maintained. It broke down on the route and we had to stand out in the sun for half an hour waiting for a replacement. The attendant assured us we would still make the connection for our Catamaran Harbor tour, which we had also booked and paid for through the Hotel. Well, we didn't make the Boat connection and they left us in the middle of the crowded City to "try and get a cab". Good luck with that! We missed our boat appointment and endured a horrible experience. The sound system on the bus was static and terrible quality, we were not able to understand any of the dialogue. Total lack of any interest from the driver or attendant.

Cheaper to take a cab
Bessie_G
, Jul 2022
For the most part, the hop on hop off experience was just ok….however during a heatwave you would expect adequate air conditioning on the bus where 3/3 busses didn’t have. We sat inside a couple of times and the rear of the bus had no air flow. We had difficulty locating the park guell stop and walked for nearly 40 minutes. It would of helped had the trip notified us there’s an app for the specific stops, not just a website that keeps freezing and isn’t user friendly. One of the ticket agents on the bus was very rude to me which made for a very unpleasant experience.
