Hop-On Hop-Off Tours
By Viator, July 2011
Convenient and informative, hop-on hop-off tours put you in the driver's seat to plan your own itinerary. The tours follow a round-trip sightseeing loop, so you can hop on and off at whichever stop you like, as many times as you like, do some sightseeing then jump back on again to ride to your next attraction.
And when it comes to your mode of transport, there are all kinds of hop-on hop-off tours around the world. Ride on the top floor of an open-top double-decker bus in Brussels, New York or Paris. Glide along the water on a canal bus in Amsterdam, a Thames clipper boat in London or a harbor boat tour in Stockholm. Or take a trolley tour in Boston, Chicago or San Francisco.
Tickets are valid for at least 24 hours, and services are regular throughout the day. The route takes you through the city’s most popular neighborhoods, and stops are conveniently located for all of the destination’s highlights.
Onboard narration provides an outline of history and culture, and explains the significance of the sights you’ll see en route. Plus there’s a professional driver/guide at the wheel for additional on-the-spot information.
To make your sightseeing even easier, you can combine a hop-on hop-off pass with a city pass or admission to a city’s must-see attraction.
You might like to combine an Amsterdam hop-on hop-off canal cruise with entry to the famous Rijksmuseum. Ride around New York in a double-decker bus and include entry to the Empire State Building’s observation deck. Or travel around Paris with ease and include a visit to the Eiffel Tower.
Wherever you find yourself around the world, a hop-on hop-off bus tour will give you the perfect overview of the city, its layout, neighborhoods and major sights.
Perfect if your visit is brief, you can also use the tour to orientate yourself and work out which sights you’d like to revisit to explore in greater depth.
