Traveler Tips


Make sure you buy a two day pass as there is lots to do and see!
The day tour used headphones which was not as good as the evening tour with a live guide to interact with.
Convenient for getting to the palace using the blue line.

Great but Darkened Tour
Karyn_H, Jan 2023
The in person guide for the night bus tour was very good. She responded to all questions we asked her too. However, at this point (1/10/22) the lights in the city are very muted in order to save electricity due to the war in Ukraine.
Nice
Roberto_L, Jan 2023
Nice guidance but it finished before time! I hope to see all Budapest in this tour! Not good! I paid for everything and not have
Vienna hop on hop off bus
Kristina_L, Jan 2023
The bus was a great way to get around and explore the locations we wanted. It’s good for a quick trip around Vienna if you have a couple of days to stay.
Comfortable, affordable, interesting
Barbara_S, Dec 2022
I enjoyed learning the history and architecture of Vienna. I appreciated that it was a recording that you could listen to or not as you wished. There were times the recording was off a bit, though as traffic would slow down the bus. Thanks for a memorable experience in Vienna!
A great way to tour.
Bruce_J, Dec 2022
Learned a lot from the pre recorded audio guide. and the 2nd floor offers a great view. The stops were easy to find.
Vienna Bus Tour
Wade_S, Dec 2022
Excellent tour - the music of Vienna makes traffic feel enjoyable. I would love to go back during warmer weather when the bus is open and you can take better photos.
Horrible
Nezar_T, Dec 2022
Bus never came at the mentioned location. I was there 5:50pm till 6:30 and it didn’t show up. Waited 40 minutes and it didn’t show up.
Vienna hop on hop off bus
Deborah_W, Dec 2022
Easy way to get around & see the highlights of the city without driving. Many stops at popular attractions.
Not a good experience
Maria_D, Dec 2022
The stops were impossible to find!!! The app was also difficult to navigate. We had to take cabs instead.

Elkin_L, Nov 2022
I enjoyed the ride around important landmarks and historic places in Zurich. Driver provided by driver was really good.
An unforgettable experience
Magdy_S, Nov 2022
All museums and the Danube shore. Also the Danube tower was exciting Have lunch in the restaurant tower was a dream come true
Confusion on pickup location
Linda_G, Aug 2022
The website said to meet at one place, the reservations said a different place. We missed the bus as we were at the wrong stop for pickup. It said on the reservation to contact the operator by text if there were any difficulties but they never responded to us. Viator was great and got us a refund.

Highlights of Vienna
Simone_A, Aug 2022
A great way to get around and find out more about the city, some stories and interesting facts. I did a round on each route and then went to places that I specifically wanted to visit. The stops are close to the interesting places to see. Staff were friendly and very helpful and spoke English well. Go for it...
Value for money
Sara_C, Aug 2022
This is so great to see the sights and learn about the history. Lots of stops and free headphones. Made our visit to vienna so much more enjoyable

Completely misleading, expensive and disappointing
Susanne_J, Aug 2022
The title of the tour is misleading! Although the title reads ‘ Night Tour, Hop and Off Bus, optional walking tour and River Cruise. The river cruise is not included! £77 / 90 euros is a rip off. Please be aware that even under the heading what is included it still says river tour but in small print states with a ‘deluxe ticket’ . Very disappointed.

Don’t waste your money
Caitlin_T, Aug 2022
Booked this ticket as we thought it was a great deal with the inclusion of the river cruise, but in the end we wasted our money. Not once were our tickets checked getting on the bus or before the walking tour. Each time I tried to show my ticket to the bus driver as we got on I was shooed away. This lead to us not realising that there were physical tickets that were supposed to be used, as we were never given one in the 2 days of using the bus. We found this out when we went to the river cruise and told we couldn’t get on with the online ticket I had been emailed. We were told to get on a bus and ask for the ticket, which we did. The bus driver then told us he didn’t know what we were talking about, he didn’t know anything about tickets and couldn’t give us anything. This led to us missing out on the river cruise due to lack of communication and the staff being incredibly unhelpful. This ruined an otherwise pleasant experience. We would have been better off just buying everything separately and not through the Big Bus Tours.

Boat was great
Janet_G, Jul 2022
Best part: boat ride A lot of money for nothing no tour bus in town as part of tour, guide had to speak different langages Little historical info Guide her English minimal. Town pretty but way too much touristy junk.
Too hot, no headphones offered on getting on
Jonathan_H, Jul 2022
The bus was like a greenhouse on the top deck and a hot box on the lower deck, We got on and were half way around the tour before we realised we were supposed to have been given/offered disposable headphones, so we missed half the tour and were not going to stay on to around again.
