The hop-on-hop-off bus is a good way to explore the city. There are different routes that you can take. Gives you time to go see the different palaces and different sites to see without walking too much.
Overall good options for multiple segmented tours. Had a couple challenges: Signed up on line and had to go to office to print tickets (traveling internationally without printer) as that was the only option to board the bus1st leg of the tour was without spoken audio, but still classical piped music, so no info on points of interest passed on tour. Operators suggested it was our fault not the driver's that we were in silence.
Take the Red Line to see most places of importance. I took the yellow line but its only good if you want to get off certain farther places like Schonbrunn palace or Beveldere. Since the buses go only in one direction and every 30 mins, its tough to really make efficient use of the 24 hr ticket. I would rather take the underground to visit places. Taxis or Uber is also a very cheap and effective alternative.
So-so. The info via the headphones was very cursory and not very informative. This is more like checking the box vs getting a good sense of the city. I have been on other hop on hop off tours in different parts of the world and they were far superior to this one.
Fantastic bus tours. There are several lines and all offer a very modern bus, which is well heated in winter, open top if its not too cold. Great sights and routes. Good regularity of buses, although be careful to read the small print on when some of the lines run - not all are every 20-30 minutes throughout the day - some are specific days only or only twice in a day. Other than that I would highly recommend this brilliant way to get around the city.
