Very good service, but I recommend to take the booking confirmation printed. Otherwise, you may have some problems.
Good easy way to get around, see what there is to see and get positioned on where everything is. Recommended.
Warsaw s a really spread out large city the hop on hop off bus enabled us to see all the major sights and then concentrate on the ones that interested us. The commentary was informative and helpful.
Warsaw needed this! The hop-on/hop-off option is a wonderful way to spend the day seeing all the sights and getting around town.
It was a rainy day and the top deck was covered. Even so, sitting anywhere on the bus provided good coverage of the sites. The audio provides good information so you know what you are looking at. I got off at several places to experience more and then got back on to get to the next stop while learning what is in-between.
This tour is an excellent way to start your visit to Warsaw. It only takes an hour to complete the circuit, consisting of ten stops. I would suggest that the company state that the starting point is right across the street from the railway station, or Warszawa Centralna. Saying the location is near the Ministry of Culture is quite misleading. The Soviet era building takes up a very large block and there's another location where there are local buses. Across from Warszawa Centralna is as precise as you can get. There is a small McDonald's sign to the left of the station sign. The website should also state that the main route is the Red line, since there is a Black line and a Blue line. The Red line is one bus, while the Black and Blue line is another bus. You can transfer from one to the other at certain locations. The blue line takes you across the river to the National stadium, while the black line goes by the Uprising Muzeum. The driver, who spoke good English, told us about the other lines. If you coordinate your visit, it could save a lot of walking.
Enjoyed the Hop On bus in Warsaw. Saw much of the city and the tour descriptions were good. However we had great difficulty finding the stop closest to our hotel (Sheraton). We ended up walking to the Cultural Palace to catch the bus (also not clearly marked). We asked at our hotel where to pick up Hop On bus but they didn't know. Sheraton is a businessman's hotel - doesn't cater to tourists. You might want to drop off some brochures there. No one on Nowy Swiat knew where the stop was either. Turned out we were very close. Recommend the bus as it gave a very good overview of the city. Stopped at many locations we wanted to tour.
Easy to locate the bus. Toured all the major sites. It was raining heavily during the whole of the trip but the bus was fully covered and we could still see what we needed to. Obviously it would have been better if it had have been dry/sunny but this is not the fault of the tour!!!
Tour very good address not listed for meeting place so confusing
It was a great way to see Warsaw, but I felt the journey was too 'rushed'. The on-board commentary headset gave lots of information, but did not always coincide with what was being passed and sometimes was late which meant you missed some sights. I think maybe to fully appreciate the tour one needs to do it twice.
It was not very long and we feel it could have gone to more places around the city. We really enjoyed and got a lot from where we did go.
Probably not a must do. Although cheap, walking or a train will allow you to do most things, and a cab to the old town will cover that when needed. Worthwhile if you dont fancy walking too far.
Very thoughtful and helpful drivers.
The commentary often was not in sync with the bus's position making it hard to correctly identify places.
The route was too short. We had walked over most of that area and hoped the bus would take us further afield.
Route had changed on 1 day no notice given.Better signage around route for the bus stops.
The location given on the voucher for starting the bus tour was difficult to find as the Palace of Culture and Science is extensive. The instructions advised it was near the station, but we were left wondering whether the tour bus left from the station itself or elsewhere. After asking for directions, we finally located the starting point. Using the audio headphones in the bus was a hit and miss affair, depending on which seat you sat in. In some seats, there was no audio point at all. In others, in order to hear the audio, it was necessary for the passenger to be hunched up and leaning over the passenger sitting next to you, as the audio chord wasn't very long. All in all, disappointing.
The Tour was not very interesting. To find the depature point was a torture. We waited for an hour and still couldnt find the depature point. The tour itself not very interesting at all...better off walking to walk through Warsaw.
Commentary did not match route, indigestible, often imparted too late; a bus an hour is too few: driver friendly and tried to be helpful - except by letting us off to view a major point - Chopin Museum - that is closed weekly on that day! Rough riding bus on cobbles
I wasn't terribly impressed with this tour because I felt that it skipped some major sites. I ended up purchasing a ticket for a hop-on hop-off tour with a different company that made stops at more places of interest.
I never got on the bus. According to the information the bus runs from 10 am to 5 pm April through September. I waited at the bus stop on Pilsudski Square from 10 am to 11:30 am and the bus did not appear. I looked for the bus throughout my 2 days in Warsaw and never saw it.
This was a disaster. We could not find the pick up location consequently it was a complete waste of money for us. We have learned that we will never prebook one of these tours as they often have such poor signage that one spends hours just looking for the starting point.
