Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Stockholm Shore Excursion: Stockholm City 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.
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.
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
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.
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.
