Tallinn City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Tallinn, Estonia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Although the Hop On Hop Off was not able to access the beautiful centre of the town, it took an interesting route, and gave fascinating information about this delightful place. It was exceptional value at around £11.

Istanbul Shore Excursion: Istanbul City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Istanbul, Turkey

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

The bus was waiting for us at the cruise terminal and was ready for all weather with a top but no sides upstairs. There was an exciting trip through the city which seemed to truly reflect the way of life there! The commentary advertised other tours which could have been helpful for some visitors. The most useful stop is at the square where the major tourist places are eg The Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, The Archaeological Museum, Topkapi Palace and access to the river trips. This was clearly indicated by the commentary.

Athens Shore Excursion: Athens Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Athens, Greece

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Very well organised with lots of knowledgeable and efficient helpers at key bus stops. The Blue Route took us from the cruise terminal in Piraeus to the Acropolis, which was very convenient. We were able to spend a long time looking around this historic site. After the Acropolis visit, we were able to pick up the Red Route from the same stop, in order to see the rest of the city from the open top of the bus. On returning to the Acropolis stop we were transferred to what seemed to be a port-only bus, which took us speedily back to the cruise terminal at Piraeus.

Rome Hop-on Hop-off Double Decker Bus Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

We had to wait for nearly an hour for the bus. A local man told us that this bus service was only running once an hour, not every 20 minutes or so as advertised, and that only two buses were running. This turned out to be true. The river trip option (which is why we chose this company) was not available. When the bus eventually arrived, we were not given headphones, so we asked asked if there would be a commentary in English. We were told that there would be NO commentary. Other people asked about this and were told that "it was broken" on all of the buses.There was a tape across the stairs - it was raining. We were given a map, but could not easily identify where we were on the route, and so did not know which of the heritage sites we were passing - apart from the major ones (eg collisseum) which we knew already, so we learned nothing new! The girl announcing the bus stops did not do this clearly, and spent much of her time speaking on her cell phone! This was not what we had paid for - we feel a refund is needed!! Other HOHO trips we have taken have ranged from very good indeed to fabulous! This was dire! We would definitely NOT recommend this HOHO bus company!!

Rome Arrival Shuttle Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Rome, Italy

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

An expensive transfer - we later found a regular coach shuttle transfer from Termini station in Rome for 4 Euros per person. The driver arrived after our group had been waiting for about half an hour, and when he did arrive he stood chatting at the tour desk for around ten minutes. There was a bit of a walk with our cases to where the van was parked, but the van was in good condition. The driver used his cell phone almost all the way to our hotel - a little unnerving, especially when he drove at high speed on the motorway, and along the tram lines in the city. However, he got us safely to our destination - when in Rome....!

Auckland Hop-on Hop-off Tour

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We cannot rate this tour because our cruise itinerary was changed twice, so we were not able to use the tour - more's the pity! We have given a Five star rating because the company responded courteously to our emails regarding our change of plan.

Honolulu Hop-on Hop-off Tour

5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Brilliant!! We thoroughly enjoyed our day with this company. There were three useful and fantastic routes. The Arizona Memorial route did not use the multi-language commentary format, but the driver gave an interesting, informative and amusing commentary, which we thoroughly enjoyed! He told us where he would pick us up, and at what time, and he was there waiting for us. The city/Waikiki Beach route commentary was interspersed with happy, Hawaiian music which lifted the spirits!! At each key stop there was a helpful and chatty representative to direct us to the correct bus. The last route - the Green Route - took us around Diamond Head. We were the only people on the bus as it was quite late, and the headphones were not working, but the girl came and sat by us and gave us a personal commentary - what a fantastic job these young people do! We thoroughly recommend this company.
