I do not recommend it
Patricia_P, Jun 2023
We went to Monaco for e few hours, so we took the hop on hop off bus. After 3 stops , we waited more than 60 min for the bus . It was a waste of time and money for us, because we had to walk and end the tour of the city early. It was big and expensive disappointment. I think I'll complain and ask for a refund
Buses do not run every 15...
Julia_T, May 2023
Buses do not run every 15 minutes . Mostly every 40-50 minutes, very u reliable, we almost missed our scheduled train back!
Wasted 2 hours looking for pick up spot.
Dina_P, May 2023
We could not find the pick up spot. We asked everyone from metro staff to police personnel to store shop owners. I tried to call the contact number and nobody answered. I reached out to the contact person given via email and they did not respond for 4 hours. I have requested a refund.
Nothing to review…they took our money and never showed up!
JoAnna_M, May 2023
The tour bus never showed up. There was no signage at the bus stop indicating the tour was cancelled. We received nothing from the tour company or Viator about cancellation. The email and phone contacts on the Viator pass were disconnected. The email on the bus website never replied. If the bus was not going to run during the Monaco Grand Prix, those dates should not have been sold. We expect a refund of the entire purchase price for 2 adults, 2 day passes.
Monte Carlo Moments
Dianne_G, May 2023
This was an amazing way to get an overview of Monte Carlo, especially during F 1 preparations. The intensity of the upcoming race made this a perfect way to travel around and see the sites of this beautiful city.
Scaffold city
Kathryn_S, May 2023
Monaco is small but very hilly so the bus was an excellent way of getting to everything. Unfortunately the grand pix scaffolding was everywhere spoilt Monco for me
Great way to see Monte Carlo
Susanne_C, May 2023
We really enjoyed seeing Monte Carlo with the hop on hop off bus. It was a great way to get around since there are a lot of hills and construction and busy roads. The only issue was we did the whole route once and they included pick up and drop off at the cruise ship terminal, but in the afternoon we hopped in the bus again at the cruise ship terminal and rode up to the palace, but on the way back they skipped the terminal and didn’t tell us. Finally, when we realized we got off and walked over to the harbor boat. We would’ve gone all the way around the whole route again, without getting dropped off at the cruise ship terminal. Advice would be to let the driver know that you need to go to the cruise ship terminal so they can take the correct route.
Monaco Hop On Hop Off experience
Mark_J, May 2023
The route is perfect, the driving was safe, we got seats up top on a busy day. What else can you ask for. Super polite driver.
Beautiful panoramic views...
Paul_M, May 2023
Beautiful panoramic views of Monaco and Monte Carlo. Ability to hop on and off provides great flexibility. Highly recommended. Merci !
Barrington_H, Apr 2023
We arrived by Train from Nice. By turning to your right and walk a little you will find the Hop on Hop of Bus Stop. Excellent time spent.
Very good
David_P, Apr 2023
Very friendly and helpful drivers, all three drivers excellent. Would recommend and do again. Very good tour
Hop on hop off
Richard_R, Apr 2023
The madness of Monte Carlo. The excess of the city is fun. F1 racing was setting up. Boats. Great big freaking boats!
Good service
HRoger_S, Apr 2023
The service worked well, just as expected. The route is circuitous with lots of tunnels. Stops are convenient for major attractions.
Monaco was a spesial expirience.
Kari_A, Mar 2023
I had a lovely tour an saw beautiful plases. But I used a lot of time looking for the stops. I came from Italy on a one day trip. I tried the day before my trip, to send a mail to the Viator guy and got the mail returned to me. Tried then to send a message on WhatsApp and have not got any answer to that.
Honest and helpful driver
Kalismary_A, Nov 2022
Great experience with these buses! It was in time and took us to all the wonderful places described. We hopped off at the palace and purchased some items in a small bag. When we hopped back on the bus and got off at the Casino we left the bag in the bus with the purchased items. The driver was sincere and helpful and brought it back to us at the stop. Thank you very much!
Great way to explore the city
mitzi_d, Nov 2022
Great way to explore the city and stop at all of the highlights. We chose the 2 day pass, rode the entire route at first, then decided where we wanted to get off and explore. There were a few times we waited 30 mins for a bus, rather than the advertised 15 mins.
Don’t use this service. Ever.
Tim_C, Oct 2022
I tried to cancel because you booked wrong tour. Got no response until we were in the cancellation window. Rip off could not go as Monte Carlo was 2 hrs away I was in Cannes.
Response from Host, Oct 2022

Hop off, but no hop on again
Bruno_M, Oct 2022
We hoped off, and then the road was closed due to football game. No one advised us, so no hop on again, and had to find a transport home on our own.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Dear Bruno, We are very saddened to read your comment. We are going to check what happened and pass on the information so that this type of incident does not happen again. Your comments are very valuable and allow us to improve our services. Thank you for sharing your opinion. Best regards,

Tony_n, Aug 2022
Brilliant way to see Monaco, drivers were really helpful and friendly. It was a great way to hear the history and get to know the area a little. I wish we had more time.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Brillant feedbacks as well, we do appreciate it. Thank you for sharing with us your positive experience !
Ok but overpriced
Rikke_B, Jul 2022
Trip gives a fine overview BUT is highly overpriced. It was impossible to hear the guidance and many of the speaker sticks didn’t work.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
We do take into consideration your opinion. However, as you have seen on TripAdvisor our grade is justified by a right ratio price/quality and the quality of our services such as the hear guidance and speaker sticks.
The best way to
Karen_J, Jun 2022
The best way to see a vertical Monaco! Old Town delightful, you must have a passport and 17 euros to enter the Casino Monte Carlo.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thank you very much for your feedback. It is a pleasure for us to read your opinion. We hope to see you soon on board our bus Hop On Hop Off - Monaco Le Grand Tour
A great way to get around
Brigita_A, Jun 2022
The Hop On Hop Off was a great option for us. We never realized how hilly actually Monaco is! We were staying at Le Meridien which is at the east end of the principality, and the bus was a mode of transportation for us by using the 2 day pass. We got to see a lot of Monaco and up high! so we were above and had a great view while touring and we were able to get a lot of great photos even from the bus!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
We are delighted to read your comment and above all to know that you enjoyed so much your Monaco le Grand Tour thanks to our services. We do hope that we will have the occasion to welcome you back during your next stay within the Principality.

Sorry I Hopped On
EdSackley, Jun 2022
Sound system was horrible. Plug in jacks didn’t work at some seats. Pre-recorded audio was not running when we were passing major sights. Driver was not announcing stops. I went downstairs to tell him and he said “Sorry, my friend (previous driver) switched off the microphone. Not what I expected from previous HOHO buses in other cities.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Dear, We are very sorry to hear about your bad experience. Our team is trying to provide the best service and I am sorry it did not meet your expectation. We take note of your comment and will make sure it does not happen again. Kind regards Monaco Le Grand Tour team
No bus!
Mary_P, May 2022
Never saw a single hop on hop off bus in Monaco…..probably not running because of the Grand Prix?? Lots of things were closed because of the race. Would like a refund.
