The Barcelona Tourist Bus

The official Barcelona sightseeing bus is the “Bus Turistic” or Tourist Bus.

It is operated jointly by TMB and Turisme de Barcelona which are both official transport and travel organizations in Barcelona.

This is what this magnificent sightseeing tourist bus service offers:

  • Hop on and off as many stops as you need to
  • 10 languages on individual headphones
  • Buses adapted for disabled people

Running Times

There is a daily service except on the 01 Jan and 25 Dec.

A complete journey takes about 2 hours, the exception being the green rout which takes about 40 minutes.

In summer the buses run from 9 am to 8 pm and in winter 9 am to 7 pm (all the timetables are posted at the stops).

The buses come by every 5 to 25 approximately minutes but that all depends on the time of the year.
