Bienvenidos a Barcelona

With over 10 years of experience helping study abroad students to find the best this city and Europe as a whole have to offer, we can't wait to help you have the best semester 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.

Explore Europe with the leading student tour operator and let us show you the best this continent has to offer.

"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.
