Barcelona - Bus2alps

Bienvenidos a Barcelona

Embarking on the adventure of studying abroad in a new country can be equal parts thrilling and intimidating. With over 15 years of experience helping study abroad students to find the best this Barcelona and Europe has to offer, we can't wait to help you have the time of your life. Our staff is made up of former study abroad students, so we know not only the best places to travel and what makes a trip great, we also know the ins and outs of Barcelona. If you have questions about the best tapas places, how to get a phone, getting to an FC Barcelona football game, or anything else during your abroad adventure, we want to help. 

Whether you are studying in Barcelona with CEA, ISA, API, IES, CIEE, GSE, Erasmus, Pompeu Fabra, the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Penn State, Indiana or any of the other dozen programs, Bus2alps is here to help you.

"Every trip we have gone on has been a blast with this organization. We have stayed at high quality hostels and have been given the opportunity to see both the touristy and local attractions in each destination. The Bus2alps leaders have also been amazing. All the Bus2alps leaders have a very transparent devotion and passion to taking care of every group member and to making sure they have the best experience possible while traveling around Europe. I would highly recommend using this travel agency while studying abroad!" - Sophia G.
