Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the City Sightseeing Stockholm Hop-On Hop-Off Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Exactly as described, however start/finish times and bus intervals were different than stated on the providers website. Also, bus driver and "ticket seller" didn't seem to understand the Viator voucher, didn't provide us with a ticket so we just kept showing the voucher. As we did quite a few of the HOHO buses in Europe, worked out they give a substantial discount if you show a ticket from another HOHO bus from another city. But you don't know that until you are there!
It was exactly as advertised. What you would expect from a HoHo bus. No complaints
Good overall tour of the city with the ability to do all 3 routes (although the Green Route is the less desirable if you have to eliminate one); clear audio although not all headsets were working so you have to hunt for one sometimes.
Great way to see Stockholm. I just hope you get a sunny day becuase we got drenched switching to the other color line of the bus.
The Red and Blue routes get you to the same places, The Yellow one is different. Worth doing.
The young men and women at the main stops were great. Their main job is to sell BUT they were very helpful, informative and fun. You must to do something about the two different companies with RED Buses. I thought "Hop On Hop Off" was a protected trade name. Guess not. Had a little logistics problem at the end of the 1st day with everyone trying to get back to the cruise ships and not enough buses but a late afternoon rain solved that problem our 2nd day.
Commentary could have been more. But with the 3 lines it was worth it.
Unclear as to where to pick up the bus (it's down by the river - map provided via Viator was incorrect). Three different routes, only had time for two but covered the major sites. Be forewarned, if taking the tour bus to Vasa, check the times of the museum as the bus goes quite early vs late summer museum hours.
I love Stockholm. The ticket is actually valid 48 hours, not 24 as originally though so a nice surprise. Convenient sight seeing option, worth the money.
Very well done and a good way to familiarize yourself with a new City; we only had the day so it sewrved us very well and our thanks to one of the guides who made specikal arrangements for us to get back to ship on time!
Initially couldn't find the bus stop and had to wait over 25 mins in torrential rain for the bus, but after that all was fine. Did all 3 routes, but didn't get off much due to the rain. Windows very steamed up - but not Viators fault as everyone had decided to do the trip. Commentary, headphones and itinery good, so would strongly recommend.
TOUR WAS GREAR, ONLY DRAW BACK WAS THE LONG WALK TO GET ON and OFF BUS AT CRUISE PORT
A very informative and interesting tour of Stockholm, unfortunately marred by the audio commentary CD failing towards the end of the trip. The driver apologised for this and added a few extra minutes to the tour as 'compensation'. Nevertheless, we were pleased we had taken the trip.
Excellent, if rather crowded. The one problem - three routes more if you count the boat trips they also organise and the voucher didn't say exactly what we'd bought or how much we'd paid. First driver refused then another when I said what we'd paid gave us a ticket for all three routes. Wish we'd known about the boat trips as well! The bus trips were excellent - multi lingual audio commentary although many of the sites were 'full' so getting off and waiting was not a success - Vassa Museum, Ice Bar, etc.
Having our voucher ahead of time saved us time, and we didn't have to worry about exchanging money or getting credit card approved while standing at the curb outside the bus. It was very easy to exchange for one of the tickets. Also, the price was competitive with purchasing direct. With limited time in Stockholm, having our tickets ahead of time saved precious time.
We quite enjoyed our tour. There was lots of interesting information. Thanks.
