Excellent! The hop on hop off was great. It was a task to find the station to redeem our Viator tickets for tickets needed for the bus but that was the only downside.

Loved it. But do not do it on a Sunday. Three stop attractions are closed.

Loved this Hop On, Hop Off Tour! We were able to go through the tour and then decide where we wanted to get off. There's so much to see in Santiago, and it was hard picking where we should explore. It's also awesome that points of interest were pointed out early in advance so that we could take pictures from the bus. We got our bands from the Turistik office at the Central Market and these guys were so helpful, including securing a taxi back to the airport for us. We only had a few hours in Santiago and this was the way to see most of the city in such a short amount of time!

This was an excellent way to see the city, particularly as our hotel, Mercure Centro, was beside one of the stops. We enjoyed seeing the different areas and hopped off for coffee at the huge glamorous new mall and rode the funicular up San Cristobal to enjoy wonderful views over the city. We loved the whole day.

Good value for money. A good way to see the city
As others have said you need to pick up your wrist band in advance.
We found the Central Market the day before ( the fish market). The tour office was easy to find at the front of the building. The tour guys English was good and he was very helpful asking where we were staying and advising us of the nearest pickup point the next morning. He gave us a map and headphone sets for the running commentary on the bus
The buses are clean and the two that we used had open 1st floor sides as gave a most welcome breeze as the bus progressed. The wristband get activated when you first alight the bus and is valid all day.
The buses are frequent but we found that we didn't always get off at the correct stop and so had to walk, then rejoining the bus didn't now exactly where it would stop so found ourselves running to the stop
We saw several street vendors displaying the red tour sign so I would have thought you could buy the tickets from them and save the trek to the tour company main office ( one opposite stop number 3)
At the end of the day you need to be within 5 stops of your final departure by 5.30pm and someone came around advising people of the best spot to alight
Completely recommended

We were very happy with the bus tour. The information given about the history of the city was excellent and being able to get off where we wished allowed us to ride the funicular up the mountain. It was wonderful.

Great way to see the highlight sights of Santiago especially with a visit that is limited and to get around to an overview of the city.

Customer service was spectacular. Great tour that stopped at all the sights I wanted to see. Friendly staff that spoke excellent English. I could not be happier with the quality of the bus and the information provided on the tour.

The easiest and best way to checkout inner Santiago ... and observe the traffic chaos around 5.50pm

My husband and I highly enjoyed our city tour, we think that it showed us the best sides of the city. The frequency of the buses was good for us when we wanted to hop off at some place and had no problem getting another one as asoon as it was possible. Thank you, it was a pleasure.

One of our travelers had mobility problems and we called our guide from our arrival transfer and she was instrumental in arranging another tour for us which was great. Hats off to her!

This is a great way to get the lay of the land in Santiago. We only had about 2 1/2 days in town and this tour actually covers a lot of ground and hits virtually all of the tourist must see spots. Buses run about every 30 minutes and we found it a great value for the cost.

This is the most effective way to make oneself familiarity with such a dispersed city like Santiago. Thanks.

The Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour of Santiago was an excellent way of getting to see the major sites of Santiago in comfort and safety and with ease, particularly when on a short stopover in the city. The information provided about the important landmarks around the city were concise and informative. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. I really enjoyed my trip around the city using the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour.
