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.
