Friendly and helpful staff. Took me to my destination at ease.. Easy way to reach your destination with just one vehicle.
Overcrowded
rob_b, May 2024
The best way to get around and see a foreign city. However, the buses were too crowded and people, after waiting, were still left behind because the bus was full. Simply add more buses and fixed!
Good service but bad traffic
Nick_J, May 2024
I rode 5/1/24. I learned it was a holiday. Maybe the traffic and rode construction is less at other times, but I spent way too much time sitting on a bus in traffic. The staff was very friendly, but it seemed like a waste of my time. I’m assuming the stop at the river cruise boats was to pick up passengers from the cruises? I had no interest to look at the cruise boats. I have enjoyed other Hop-Ons in other cities and found this one Meh.
Excellent way to see the sites of Vienna with elderly family members.
Elizabeth_N, Apr 2024
Great views on the red route. We stayed on for the whole circuit. A good afternoon out. Our elderly parents loved this way of seeing the sites as they are unable to walk far.
Listening to the amazing...
PEEYUSH_G, Apr 2024
Listening to the amazing stories about Vienna and learning about its rich culture. The bus took us through many historical.places.
Very good day in Vienna
Stella_S, Apr 2024
We had a great time going around the city. The staff were very friendly and answered any question we had about hew to get from one point to another. The narrative was very informative. Thank you!
Ok experience.
Dawn_R, Apr 2024
The busses definitely didn’t come every 20-30 minutes. We were on the blue line and only had two buses running for awhile. They had a bus (PF19) parked at the opera for well over 3 hours. If you looked on the app it looked like there were more busses running than actually were. It was a good way to get an overview of the city, but time consuming. Our bus stop didn’t have a bus come until after 10am. To use the buses at night, you had to sign up for the 6:30pm night tour.
I would do this again in every city in Europe that offers this tour!
Pamela_R, Apr 2024
What a great way to get your bearings on where interesting sights are! We saw lots of great places to visit!
Vienna by night
Anand_Y, Mar 2024
Very comprehensive overview of Vienna in a short time. The guide was humorous and kept everyone engaged
App makes it worthwhile
LISA_S, Mar 2024
Fairly expensive, but the Big Bus app gives you a fairly accurate idea of when to expect the next bus, so you can make sure to be at the stop in time.
SCAM
Richard_D, Mar 2024
DO NOT USE THIS TOUR. Would not book this tour. I paid for and was charged for a cruise. The cruise was not open to take. They refused to refund the portion of the payment for the cruise. I am reporting actions to my credit cars as fraudulent as they advertised a service and charged but it was not available. The date it was closed was 3/10.
Buyer Beware
Jim_D, Mar 2024
We booked the 48 Hour Hop on Hop Off tour with the optional River Cruise. On the second day, we went to the dock for the river cruise portion and found that all river cruises that day had been cancelled because of winds. We requested a refund from Viator for that portion of the tour and we denied any refund.
One of my worst Big Bus tour experiences
ANUNAYA_D, Jan 2024
The agent was not to be seen for an hour plus. I tried to contact through Viator aap and no response. Walked an hour to get to next Big Bus tour office. We got the last bus and only could do one route.
Great tour.
Melissa_S, Jan 2024
Had a great time on the hop on hop off buses listening to the information about the city. Each tour was about 2 hours though so some of the longest I've done. I only wish I'd paid for the 48 hour pass.
Surprising and fun
Cassandra_L, Jan 2024
Finding an amusement park that we didn’t know existed was a nice surprise. We had lots of fun. The bus got us to a few points of interest and also helped us get to places we had booked to go to like Mythos Mozart and Schmetterlinghaus
Great way to see the city
Jeffrey_F, Dec 2023
The hop on hop off bus is always a great way to get an overview of the city you are visiting. We enjoyed this.
Skip the River Cruise!
Mary_S, Dec 2023
Hop-On/Hop-Tour: Great, as usual! It’s my top choice when traveling on a short trip. Walking Tour: Our tour guide was amazing, especially when leading us through crowds! River Cruise: Don’t bother! At least not at night. I couldn’t really see anything. I thought there might have been a little more light, and the canal was also very dirty. The only perk is that it was warm inside and they had food and drinks available for purchase. I was just looking forward to more sightseeing, though.
Terrible
Rebecca_S, Dec 2023
Not worth the money. The audio guide was not working. Miss the days of the live guides. Not a very good overview of the attractions.
Waste of time and money!
Nilda_B, Dec 2023
The worst tour I ever had with Viator.com. The tour guide could hardly be heard over the channel (using ear pod). His side comments are uncalled for like, “IKEA company is invading Vienna”, who cares about it. You are there to promote your place, so talk about the beauty of Vienna!
Should try more..
Jose_B, Dec 2023
Well you’re and despite the weather, people were attentive to help and drivers were save and helpful.
