Great Way to See the City!

Hop On Hop Off bus is a great way to see the city, actually whatever city. We did a once around Chicago tour first to see where we wanted to go back. Our narrator, Gretchen, did a great job. During her lunch break, Joanna took over and was fabulous. We took the bus at other times and found each escort providing additional knowledge. One person actually did the driving and narrating at once! Highly recommend this transportation..

Si piensan en reservar este tour para español, no lo reserveis! es una estafa! We asked for spanish tour and they didnt care when we arrived. We double checked several times in the reservation by phone and the guide speaks very little english. It was a shame

Bad experience

I bought tickets on line & since I was visiting from out of town, did not have a printer handy. I assumed wrongly that the electronic confirmation was good enough. It is the 21st century. However, upon my arrival at the kiosk, the representative said he had no way to print out my tickets. Bummed, & did not utilize the tickets at all.

Good way to see many areas of the city. Narration by guides vary. Can access a narrative in several languages which is verbal or written. Buses are older.

Rip-off by Viator on ticket price

I was outraged that, when I called Viator, the woman told me that the $19 hop-on and hop-off bus was sold out, and that only the $37 ticket was available, because the bus was nearly empty. This is very unfair to tourists and a ripoff by your company. I therefore demand a refund of the $18 extra that I paid. I am warning other customers to therefore avoid your service. Please respond today.

The best Uber or taxi in the City!

I do HOHO's all over the world whenever I hit a new city or am introducing a loved one to a new city (even if I already know the city) as this is a great way to sample the major attractions (the stops hardly miss a one) with a great blend of history sprinkled into the live commentary that introduces you to the major relevancies about the city. The tour guides there in Chicago were a very lively bunch and each was very helpful (even shammying off the windows and seats on a off and on rainy afternoon). Side-note to my fellow-travelers: If it is sunny in Chicago, get on the top of the double-decker buses. If it is rainy, see if you can catch one of the trolley cars. Sitting downstairs in the double-decker buses, you can hardly see a thing whereas the trolleys are what they run most in the winter so they are better designed for an enclosed but viewable scenario.

We only had a day to explore the city and after reading other reviews opted for the bus tour. As a family of 5 we have different preferences but this trip.pleased everyone. Would do it again if we visit in the future. The guides are very knowledgable and humorous.

Didn't even get to go...

The tour was hard to find at the locations, and I didn't even get to go on the bus. It was a thunderstorm so I ended up paying for Uber's to go to my locations ..or walking when it was nicer weather later in the day. If you can walk, it'll save you money rather than going on this tour.

I don't know if I will ever do hop-on hop-off again. This is about the 3rd city I've tried them as it sounds like a great idea but in reality its pretty much a waste of time and money. No explanations and if they try the intercom system is useless. They basically drive you past places and you have to be smart enough to know if its someplace you want to explore.
