The busses have always been in use for so called Hop-on Hop-off tours where you choose where you like to get on and off to visit the different sights at your own pace. « less

We made a mistake and bought a 3 day pass which turned out to be a bit of a waste. One day would have covered it all. The boats were running too ( beyond their normal season as the weather was super) but Stockholm is easy to get around. Also our third day was curtailled as half the roads were... More

We took the Green Boat Tour from our cruise ship port and were left stuck in the middle of the Old Town having to walk all the way back to the cruise ship. The sales people will tell you anything to get the business and unfortunately we were with an entire group who were left in the same situation.

We did both the Bus and Canal tours. This way we could see more for less. It is really a smart way to see all the local sights and not wear yourself out walking the entire city. We hopped-off walked the areas we wanted to see and then jumped back aboard. They have ear buds, select your language and hear... More

Because I could not find an entry for the GREEN buses on TA, I will post my review here. We only had 1 day in the Swedish capital and with the hop on/off we saw a lot and did not need the normal public transport to get around. The first stop was in front of the opera house we bought... More

this is the ideal way to see and learn more about any city and stop off at spots of interest to you. it is usually the first thing we do when arriving somewhere that offers these tours. well worth tha money especially if you get a funny guide.

When we visited Stockholm on a cruise ship in August we chose to use the Green hop on hop off bus which would be more correctly named as the hop on rip off bus. Firstly we went on the Green Line ferry service, the staff were pleasant and friendly and we had no problem with the service. When it came... More

Dear Sir/Madame, We are sad to hear you did not get the service expected. We work hard on our frequency and the tickets for the green buses are also valid on some of the red buses. This is somewhat confusing since there is also another company with red buses. We are looking through the comunication and marketing so that our... More

We used the red hop on off bus in Stockholm, Helsinki, Oslo and then got the fourth bus free in Copenhagen. You get the fourth city free so keep your receipts! It worked out perfect for the limited time we,had in each port. It goes directly in a circle to all the main attractions, so you see all you want... More

We chose to take the Green Hop-on, Hop-off bus around Stockholm instead of taking a tour. The salesperson at the ship was quite persuasive and guaranteed that the bus service would be great. Unfortunately, while the Green Line boat service was great, we found the bus service miserable. Our last stop was at the ABBA museum. After touring it, we... More

Dear Sir/Madame, We are sad to hear this information. We have this year had both communication limitations in regards to which buses you can take with the ticket and traffic problems on certain days with cruise ships in Stockholm. It seems as though you happened to get bad service because of this. The activities to improve our service during July... More

We have used the hop on hop off in nearly every city we have visited. I read the reviews for the service in Stockholm and saw many were not in favour. We used the hop on hop off as a bus service instead on trying to negotiate the buses and trams because 99% of what we wanted to see in... More

I have used this service in many countries and here in Stockholm it is an excellent service and invaluable for discovering this Capital which encompasses 14 islands. Very interesting info via the headphones provided and the ticket is valid for 24 hours.
