Hop-on hop-off double-decker bus tours in Kiev. Open Kiev tourist bus is a great possibility to enjoy Kyiv from the height. The tour is comfortable whatever the weather; in case it rains the double-decker covers its top in an instant. During the wintertime we give to our guests warm blankets and a nice cup of tea. All-day tickets. Open Kiev tickets are valid all day long! You can get off at one of 35 bus stops at any moment, have a walk, see the nearest landmarks, visit museums and get on the bus again. Tours are arranged in two languages – Russian and English simultaneously (audio guide). Buses comply with the timetable, notwithstanding the number of people. You will get a chance to enjoy the tour even if you are the only passenger. Tour duration is 2 hours. The tour embraces all the city’s key sights. When buying tickets for the Open Kiev tour, you will be presented with a map of the city, which will help you plan your time in the best possible way.

I have used the hop on hop off buses in many cities around the world and they are typically wonderful; however I think the Company should be ashamed of the Kiev Hop On Hop Off. We wandered around various supposed 'stops' to try and catch the bus; we waited and had lunch next to one stop for 95 minutes and... More

We got on the Hop On Hop Off bus of Kiev that included 11 stops of the city sights....at least that is what the brochure promised. When I noticed that the bus route did not follow the map and there were no stops, I asked the guide what was going on. She then informed that it was just a ride... More

This was a big disappointment and a rip off. We took the hop on hop off bus so we could visit all the sights in Kiev and after spending 200 Ukranian dollars each for our tickets, the bus did not follow the route on the map and did not stop to let us off to see anything along the way.... More

The bus that never ever arrived. After attending a Tourist Information booth, having their attendant contact & confirm bus would arrive, it never did. Stood, hopefully, waiting,with no success. Had to hire a private tour operator to see the sights of Kiev! 24 hour bus not worth considering in your itinerary.

Costs 200 UAH for the "day" - we made one stop and waited 1.5 hours for the bus to come back around to collect us again. The traffic was so terrible (not the tours fault) it took another hour to make the rest of the trip. The bus didn't make any stops along the way and when we wanted to... More

The sites you see are really great and you get a great overview of Kyiv. The bus didnt stop on all the stops on the map, there are a few places where i wanted to hop off, but the bus just went past. Think you have to ask to stop? Im used to the bus stopping at every stop. There... More

It is a great tour and you can have 2 ways: as a usual hop on/off tour or as customized tour, with your own tour guide. The second one would cost you more ($100 per person as of July of 2012), but I suggest to go with it (as I did). Here’s what we got for our money: our tour... More

If you are in Kiev for a short period of time, it would be worth taking this hop on and hop off sightseeing bus tour. It will give you an orientation on where the main landmarks of the city is. The whole trip if you do not get on and off takes around two hours. A ticket costs 150 hr.A... More
