We bought a combo bus/ boat ticket for this company because their booth was right as we got off our cruise ship. The hop on hop off boat was good and came every 10-15 as promised. However the bus was horrible. We waited over 20 minutes for the bus and then when we finally got picked up, they sat there... More

Do not use the green buses. After waiting 70 mins (along with 20 others) for a bus back to our ship we shared a taxi (45 Euros!!!). It says every 12-15 mins but this is not correct. Unreliable!!!

This tour takes you to many of the places that you will want to visit. Unfortunately the recording provides very little information or history. I have been on other similar hop on/off tours in other cities which were much better. We were surprised.

Cost a lot of money and only got half way round and told to get off because he was going back to garage. Waited a while but one didn't arrive so decided to have a walk around the old town. Tried again at another stop and waited over 25 mins to go around part of the route we had done... More

Supposed to come every 20 minutes - I took the 3 day option and it has not come within 20 minutes at anytime during the 3 days. More like 40 minutes or more. In the meantime Red buses come and go. Disgusting service, not the drivers fault, but totally false advertising by the owners.

During highseason (July, August) the buses should have an interval of 10-20 minutes, we had to wait always more than 30 minutes. Absolutely unprofessionla. In the meantime we 2 buses of the red line - better take this one! And we've got the impression that there is only one driver on duty, we have always seen only this (unkind) man.

There are several companies with similar names. This is fornthe Green bus company. We were one one of at least two cruise ships docked in Stockholm the same day. At least one sold tickets to this line as a shore excursion. Safe to say that they way oversold their ability to carry everyone. Many people were unable to get onto... More

We have taken many of these bus services around the world and this one would be our least favourite in one of our favourite cities. I would recommend you save your money and walk. Our tour took just over 2 hours and I estimate 70% of this was spent waiting at stops or traffic. Obviously you can't control the traffic... More

We had a bad experience with this company and would not recommend it for the following reasons: 1) We waited more than 30 minutes for a bus - they are supposed to run every 10 minutes. 2) We wanted to get on the bus at number 15 and 19 which was impossible as the stops where no place to be... More

This was the most expensive of all the bus tours we took on the various Scandinavian cities we visited while on a Baltic cruise as well as the least amount of service provided. It started off bad as the bus that arrived when we paid was filled so the attendant recommended that we take the boat tour first which we... More
