As you travel around the city by open-air bus or double-decker bus, hop off when you wish at any of the 17 stops, which include Fort Douglas, Temple Square and This Is the Place Heritage Park. The open top buses are the best for picture taking. Then, get back on the next bus within an hour or less. While you’re on board, listen to consistent, accurate, and fun narration to learn about a bit about Salt Lake City and the history of this unique city. When booking, you have the option of a 1-day or 2-day pass.
  • Create your own tour by choosing when and where you get off and back on
  • Travel aboard an open-air bus or double-decker bus and enjoy commentary written by an expert Salt Lake City historian

The full route takes 1.5 hours, and you can hop off at any of the stops to check out the sights that most interest you; see the Itinerary section for the list of 17 stops. Learn about the city when you’re on the bus via the onboard narration, which was written by a knowledgeable historian, and enjoy access for either one or two days, depending on option selected when booking.

Coverage of sites good, but audio hard to follow with person upstairs pointing to left or right at different times. Please synchronize better.

We are actually from Salt Lake City but have found when we travel to other locations, it is fun and very helpful to get the Lay of the land from a hop on hop off bus before we decide how we want to spend our time in that particular city. We decided to have a staycation here at home this year and enjoy our own city and sights. In comparison to other cities we have visited, this tour was not the best, by any means. There was a recorded message on the bus but the staff was not anything like we had experiences other places. They seemed very bored with their job rather than making it an exciting place to visit. The recorded narration was interesting and we learned some new facts about our own city. It definitely was not worth the money we paid for the tour. We have such an outstanding city with so much to see and do, it was a real disappointment to see how it is portrayed to our visitors. I hope the staff can up their game in showing our visitors what a great place Salt Lake City is!!

We scheduled only one day to visit Salt Lake City and thought the Hop-On Hop-Off would suit our purposes just fine. We were not disappointed! Driver Jerry and his assistant Ryan were TERRIFIC in their commentary and willingness to instruct us on the various venues. We took this tour on a Sunday, however, which is a caveat for others. Why? Because SO MANY businesses are closed on Sunday including City Creek Shopping Center and most restaurants in the Temple Square area. Free car parking is available at This is the Place Heritage Park Stop 12. There is NO BUS STOP sign outside of the Heritage visitor center, but it is in the pavered circle adjacent to the parking lot. If you take the bus, plan on doing so early in the day -- there is a lot to see and the last bus goes back to its Welcome Center by 4:00. A schedule is available from the driver. Two buses run the route, each approx. 45 min. to an hour apart. If you have limited time, take in Temple Square, the third stop on the route.

Saw some of the highlights in the city of Salt Lake that takes 1.5 hours to do a complete loop. However, if you get off the double decker bus, you may not get back on the bus since there are only two buses the traverse the city. Tried to call the phone number to find out where and when another bus was due but the call was not returned nor did the second bus followed the schedule that was provided for the day. Be aware that if you are a couple of seniors, you WILL NOT be able to book two senior tickets but can fool the system by booking one regular ticket and one senior ticket. Of course, that means no tipping the driver or the person that stops and starts the tape that describes the sights that you may be seeing while the bus is traveling throughout the city. Also be aware that there are sights in the city that are not identified and you will not be exposed to, such as the planetarium, the children's museum, Grand America Hotel, the City Creek Center or the Gateway Mall. Good way to be exposed to the city, but at a price.

Booked the 2 day on off. They did not tell me that it was not running because of a State holiday. I was left standing at a stop waiting until I finally called to check on the schedule of the pick ups and they informed me about the holiday. Very disappointed.

Loved it - sometimes the wait to hop back on was a little long, but with only two buses, I don't know how to avoid that. At time the speakers were a little hard to hear, especially on the open-air bus.

I had waited at City Counsel to be picked up. The driver drove straight past me as if he wasn't going to stop until I flagged him down. I handed him my voucher and he stated that there was a convention in town and that he wouldn't show me all the stops. I inquired about a refund and he stated that he only drives for the company. I then said that I would take the tour as I had planned. When we were a few blocks away from my pickup location he stated that he didn't know what I wanted to do from this point. I was confused by his comment so asked for an explanation. He stated that to get me back to my car it may take him 50 min. He stated that I could walk to my car in about 20-25 min. I had a flight to catch so I had no other option. I was upset because I never hopped off so the entire tour should have taken 90 min as your website stated and as the phone operator stated when I booked. I asked the driver if he could get me back to my car within 2 hours and he assured me he could even before I started the tour. He skipped a few of the stops due to the convention going on down town and he was ahead of schedule. I could see the building where my car was parked so I asked if he could just drive me there. He said he couldn't. I walked which was about 30min away on foot and the entire walk was all up hill on State Street. There was no other tourist on the bus. I was his only customer. He never had to stop to pick up anyone else. I even left him a 5 tip. I am sorry but I can't recommend this one to anyone and I should be getting a refund. The only time that I hopped off was when the driver stopped to take a smoke. Angela

I did this in early September and there were few tourist in town. As a result the operator didn't seem to be to well motivated to make the service work well that day and I gave up at midday when the bus simply didn't come to the stop I was told to wait at. The stops would certainly give a good overview of Salt Lake City and the drivers are friendly. The service is probably better during the busy months.
