We went on all three of the Hop on, Hop off bus routes over two days. We found it a very useful way of getting around a city we had not been to before; getting off to visit many places we wanted to see; then continuing on. The commentary (which kept more or less in sync with the journey) is useful; and yes there is quite a bit of music, but you can always turn it down. I found the supplied headphones rather useless, or may be it's my non standard ears! but they kept falling out. I suggest you take your own if you can; standard 3.5mm plug. We never had to wait more than 10 min for a bus; usually about 5 min. Booking through Viator in advance seemed the cheapest way of doing it. We found the tour staff helpful and friendly.
