Vienna is a big city and the hop-on/hop-off bus is a good way to become acquainted with its many sites of interest. The company that runs the service was very helpful. I somehow managed to lose my bus ticket and, while they did not replace it for free, they did sell me a replacement at a discounted cost.

Many different routes the buses take by choosing the color bus. You need two days to see it all. This covers all of Vienna with such information. A great buy and bargain.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

A great way to see the most of the city in a short amount of time. A leisurely way to enjoy the sights while getting in-depth commentary in your language through earbuds so every seat is a good seat! Plus, it provides transportation around town to the best parts without having to read signs or fool around with city buses or the Underground. We've done this type of bus in other European cities, and its always enjoyable!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Excellent stops, we took full advantage of the various routes. Vienna is a beautiful city with many things to offer and the Vienna City Hop on Hop off Tour does a great job of show casing what Vienna has to offer. Highly recommend getting a 48 hour pass.
