A great way to get around this beautiful city! You really need 3 or more days to take in all the sights/attractions.
It worked out perfect and we were able to see everything. We bought the boat pass and it was really good. They worked out perfect for the two days.
Loved it! Buses ran regularly, Windows were kept clean enough to take pictures, because the top had to remain on. The buses were clean and the drivers very friendly. Enjoyed the 72 hours. Each day seemed like a new trip. At first I was concerned about purchasing 72 hours, but I used it every day.
Awesome tour, great information about the city. We tied it with the boat excursion and it was perfect!!
The bus driver did not accept my voucher I printed off. He eventually allowed us on. Great way to see Stockholm!! Did not appreciate the 10-20 minute stop at the square.
If you are coming off a cruise ship or just don't have enough time this is the perfect way to get a feel for the city and visit some of the high spots. We managed to had time to take a full tour of two of the routes, and to visit Gamla Stand (Old City) and the Royal Palace. Just don't make the mistake of going for their boat ride. Without actually saying so you are led to believe that this is THE trip through the Archipelago when in fact it's a boring boat ride on some lake. Apart from the we had no problems and decided that Stockholm is a place we'd love to return to.
Enjoyed ourselves, and our hop on hop off bus was in site as we disembarked the ship at this port..so that was a plus.
We find that a hop on hop off tour is the best way to get an informed overview of a city, we then walk the rest of the day dropping in at cafes and bars. If time allows my wife likes to do some shopping away from the tourist areas
First driver was rude and unknowledgeable about his bus. The Wi-Fi did not work and the driver said so what. Got off bus and onto another bus. It took approx. 35 minutes for the next bus but once on another bus, the tour bus was good.
The places to see were excellent but not well marked, the drivers didn't accurately know opening times nor pick up at the same places. 3 busses went past us while we waited at the same drop off spot.
This was nice to cover a lot of area, but the audio narration was not as detailed as many others we had been on in other locations. They were waiting when we disembarked the ship was nice and convenient! They brought us back to the ship as well as it was one of the stops.
If I had know that a boot combi ticket was easier and faster than I had take that ticket.
The last bus leaves at 4.00 pm and that was very earlie, so we have take the taxi back to the cruise
As with hop on hop off principal time is necessary. Here ran out of time and also buses very busy.At times not able to get on bus because it was already full.More buses might have be better.
unfortunately, the hop on hop off bus service in copenhagen left a lot to be desired. We waited a lot for buses, and one bus actually drove right by us at one of the stop.
In other cities this system worked really well.
Horrible!!! Do not book this excursion!! Their ads all say buses come every 15-20 minutes. NOT TRUE. I waited 40 minutes multiple times. I had bought a 72 hour ticket. The first day they tried to blame the delays on traffic. The second day they claimed I must not have seen their red buses they have green ad red buses, believe me I looked for both. The third day I was so disgusted by their lack of timeliness that I did not even use my pass. And their competitor, the Big Red Bus seemed to have no trouble sticking to the every 15 minute schedule. Do yourself a favor and book with the Big Red Bus instead!!
We caught the first bus at the cruise ship terminal. My audio did not work for long periods of time. The bus was full so I couldn't change seats. We had a limited amount of time in Stockholm. Therefore, we knew we could only stop once or twice. The buses didn't come in half-hour increments. When they came by, the buses were full. We had to take a taxi to the port from the Royal Palace.
What a mess! The first Hop-on/Hop-off bus at Nynashamn port won't take us because it's a different company. We end up taking a taxi and paid E105.00 to go to Stockholm City. When we got to town, the red bus hop-on /hop-off kept telling us we have to wait for the green bus. By the time the green bus came, we don't have anymore time to see the place. Poor information by Viator! Take the cruise tour or just go to info center.
The company used had red and green buses which became confusing which bus to get on. We were turned away several times by bus drivers and told to wait for another bus. All buses looked the same! We were not the only people who had this problem. We were told the bus ran every 30 minutes but had to wait over 45 minutes for a bus to take us to the cruise ship. Another couple had already been waiting over 20 minutes when we got to the bus stop. We got to the ship with only 10 minutes to spare!!!
