Traveler Tips

Also, they need to extend the hours, they only give you 6 hours and in reality you can not get off too many places and get back to your original location in that amount of time.
I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city for the first time.

Great way to see the city!
Ninette_F, Jun 2023
Buses are clean and well maintained. Driver was courteous and helpful. Buses were hard to get in and out of however if you are like me and don't have the best leg strength. They stop at all the right places. I would kind of wish that the buses ran a little more frequently (right now at ever 30 minutes) but understand why they don't.
Waste of time and money
Julie_F, May 2023
Despite being told the bus would be around every 20-30 minutes we waited an hour and 20 minutes for the bus. The attendant at the spot continually said it’s almost here. Had he been truthful we could have explored more rather than waiting in line. Additionally the long wait made us not want to get off at any of the other stops. We ultimately ended up getting off the bus and walking on our own. A complete waste of money.
Costly for the service available
Tonya_H, May 2023
Although our tickets were good for 48 hours, your service was only available 20 hours. You seriously need to extend your hours of operation by starting by at least 9:00AM and ending beyond 6:00PM.
Seattle’s Highlights
Elsie_S, May 2023
Easy way to do the must sees like the Space Needle, Pike’s Market, Seattle Observation Tower, Seattle art Museum, & the convention center.

Overpriced and lacking content
Karen_G, May 2023
We sat up stairs no speaker or ear phones, so unable to hear commentary, had to sit downstairs just to hear which isn’t good for photos. More information could have been in the commentary about the history of Seattle. The lady bus driver did well on the hills which were very steep and was very pleasant as passengers got off and on. I thought it was expensive for what it was.

Waste of money if you hope to hop on and hop off on several places.
Jo_A, Oct 2022
We were lucky to opt for a 2day pass because the 1st day was absolutely waste of time. The bus timing was absolutely off and after waiting 1hr or so, we decided to take a walk after a single travel to start the tour. The rest of the day will be spent wait g for bus. 2nd day we were wiser and decided to take the entire run in go and hop off on the 2nd run on place we want to visit. After that, uber was our friend.
Not easy to hop on and off!!
Donna_M, Oct 2022
This is a great way to get am overview of Seattle. However, the day we hopped off at the Observatory and then got on later, the two stops we wanted to get off again, the driver did not stop. He did not say we needed to tell him we wanted to get off and there is no way if you are on top of the bus to let the driver know! We were really disappointed we did not get to the Starbucks Reserve or the shopping atea! We had no more time that day, either! I feel we paid for something that did not deliver!

Not enough time to really hop off to see sights.
Lora_V, Sep 2022
Wasn't worth the price. Only was only able to hop off at Chinatown before we had to get back on being it was the last hop on hop off coming. We started at 1130 but bus didn't come until 12. After getting on that bus hopping off at Chinatown and hopping back on 45 mins later just to find the bus driver bus was going out off commission went to the orginal sight had to wait until 230 to catch next hop on hop off. Got off at another stop and when we got on that bus it was also going in. Si wanted time and money
Not well organized
Joseph_D, Sep 2022
Canceled tour. Waited long time for bus. Couldn’t get response from tour operator. Really wanted to do this trip
Disappointed ☹️ no pick-up
Jo_W, Sep 2022
We booked on-line stated we could “hop on or hop off” at any of the locations listed. We waited at both the Paramount Theater/Hotel locations for 1hr 40min. After waiting for about 35min A bus flew by us not even slowing down. I called and talked to someone who said she was contacting a driver. The “customer service rep” said her calls were going straight to voicemail so she would send an email. This all while we were standing right in front of one of the signs that designated as a pickup locations. Over 24hrs and still no call from the company. Therefore, we requested a refund because we couldn’t even get on! Extremely disappointed with this service!!!

Not Happy
Robyn_L, Sep 2022
Skipped two relevant stops to my itinerary because of construction and didn’t disclose this prior to purchase. Complete waste of money. Bus was so late to the stop coming back, I ordered an UBER. Not happy. Not recommending. I’ve been very happy with Viator over the years but the non-disclosure was a huge disappointment. They should refund my money.

The worse bus 😡
Sol_O, Sep 2022
We have to wait for the bus for about 35 min, when it arrive the guy said that the last stop were the next stop, so we have to wait more time You never offer a map so we were confused about the place that we want most the visit We took the bus for about 10 min in whole day and we pay $92 😡
Construction Impacted
Jim_H, Sep 2022
It was disappointing that out of 20 scheduled stops only 12 were visited due to construction and road closures. We purchased a two day pass but have no intention of using the service on day two and will pursue a refund. The driver was good and the challenges were not her fault.
Poor experience
Shubhra_M, Sep 2022
Very poor experience! After a full circle on the hop on hop off we hopped off at Edgewater and even after waiting for an hour there was no trace of the bus.

Mostly good.
Joann_C, Sep 2022
The tour and guide were fine. No problem. But marking where to get back into the bus was absolutely horrible. The map must be more detailed for those of us who do not know Seattle as the company does. We wound up taking an Uber back to our hotel.
Excellent service and...
Andree_R, Sep 2022
Excellent service and great experience. Debbie the driver was outstanding, she answered questions and very friendly.
Tour above the bustling Streetscape
LaConda_M, Sep 2022
It was very nice seeing the city above the streetscape. We avoided lights, traffic, and tourist. In addition, drop offs were at convenient locations. We would recommend.
Very poor service
pandswilliams100, Sep 2022
Applied for a refund- 4 of the main tourists stops were missed out without explanation. The brochure indicated 20/30 minute intervals between the buses at each stop. We waited for over an hour at Stop 11 and no bus turned up. We had to walk back to our hotel Very poor service compared to the many hop on hop off buses we have used in many other cities across the world where we have always been very satisfied
Great Seattle
david_m, Sep 2022
Great time and full tour of Seattle center and ports are. Starbucks 1st store. And friendly staff and drivers for hop on hop off
Audio tour great, tour guide enhanced with their knowledge of city history
Cheryl_M, Sep 2022
The convenience of being able to hop off and on at your leisure and having a audio guide at your finger tips. We were able to see and learn about many of the points of interest and spend as little or as much time we needed to enjoy the sites.
The views of gas work...
Karen_G, Sep 2022
The views of gas work park and W Highland Dr we're amazzing,u can take vert good pictures there and breath fresh air
OK for first time Seattle visitors
Andrey_L, Sep 2022
It was too slow, boring, with recorder, much worse than we anticipated. Probably, it’s nothing else to show to tourists in Seattle
Seattle glimpses
Harry_G, Sep 2022
Hearing about Japan town and seeing architecture of bldgs. Drivers were very friendly, helpful, & informative.
Not worth it
Paul_V, Sep 2022
We waited for about an hour for the bus to arrive. This is consistent with other reviews. I would not recommend.
Day adventure
Lori_C, Aug 2022
Guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about Seattle. Great way to get to know the city. The survey is annoying as it won’t let you write a little amount
Seattle Best
Carolyn_T, Aug 2022
We went to the top of the Space Needle and toured the blown glass museum. The Pike Market was good...the flowers were so beautiful.
Disappointing and expensive
william_h, Aug 2022
Did not dare a hop off due to troubles hopping on. Never experienced this degree of difficulty with a tour bus and we have been on many in very high traffic patterns like NYC and Washington DC
