Previously, I've taken hop-on-hop-off tours in Milan, London and Paris - they all permitted converting a voucher to on-board ticket on the coach. This one doesn't! This means that after boarding, I had to get off at a kiosk (there were only 3 along the route) and lose 30 mins waiting for the coach

The circuit was excellent as it covered all areas we sought. Sound in open air buses was weak and would have preferred the ear phones - such as in Paris. Good value for the money - highly recommended.

Nice way to get an over all view of the city and the main tourist stops.

This trip was good but you have to wait for speaker to state the sights in 4 different languages and sometimes you are past before your language was spoken. I feel they should have a bus going in each direction not just one. I would recommend this tour for first time visitors

Worth doing to see parts of Santiago. However, if u are in a hurry, do not do the full round as the traffic jams will cause entire trip to be more than 2 hrs long. Not all stops are worth stopping at so plan properly. Also, the Turistik bus sop signs are really tough to find becoz they may not necessarily carry the Turstik logo, this part can be better improved.

A great way to see the city. However, do not try to redeem your voucher at the international airport. Although convenient the gentleman had no idea. We gave up after 15 minutes of dithering. The mall office took less than 5 minutes. Occasionally the bus commentary was out of sync with the actual route

Very Dissapointing. Too much time was spent in the LaBoca Area including an approximate 30 minute stop there that the bus made with no explanation with everyone left sitting on the bus.

I truly had a wonderful time getting on and getting off the bus. This was so worth the money.

Takes a long time to do the whole route.
Suggest getting on and off as you go as we did the whole route first and we ran out of time.

Good stops! Allowed a quick visit to some key areas of Santiago. Buses were clean, on schedule and guides very helpful and informative. Suggestion would be having a 'pre map' available on line as we had never been to Chile and weren't sure distance to hotel, (close) sites etc.... We have used Viator in San Diego as well and would recommend

I had planned on taking the hop on/off bus early....as it happened, I couldn't catch it until after 11am. The system has it that it's only that day (NOT, as with others) 24 hr. basis. So I felt shortchanged. You should change this to it being good for the 24 hrs.

It was too slow. The worst was when the driver stopped at a shopping mall and sat there for at least 15 minutes! The temperature was in the 90s....it was ridiculous and not necessary. The tour should be a continuous loop. I've taken much better hop on off tours.

The bus was much more helpful on the west side of the city than anywhere else. Once we got toward the east side we went in a big circle, and then took a totally unnecessary trip to a huge shopping mall, adding another 30+ minutes to the trip. Stops can be hard to find, even with their map.
