“Very poor quality compared with other bus tours”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I have toured many cities on the hop-on-hop-off bus tours and this was by far the poorest quality. Not only did the price double in April, but there was very little commentary. The sound was not working on the first bus I was on and after asking the driver to fix it several times and he did not, I finially asked to get off. I then had to wait for 20 min. for the next bus to come. I asked for a refund, but was refused even after speaking with a manager. I strongly advise against this bus tour.

“Not up to the SIA standard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The SIA Hop-On Bus is really just a bus service that gets you to different tourist destination. There is only minimal commentary on the bus so you get very little information on the tourist sites. Compared to the other hop-on/hop-off buses in Singapore this one is poor. I gave it an average rating only because it is pretty cheap (There is some savings if you have a Singapore Airlines boarding pass).
Overall this service does not reflect well on Singapore Airlines (which I think is an excellent airline)

“Great Attraction with informative narrative - repeat customer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We always take a hop on hop off bus in every city when on holidays. It enables you to orientate yourself quickly and decide which sites you want to visit and work out a schedule (if you haven’t already done so). The frequency of this service was excellent; the commentary was clear and in sync with the speed of the driving. Some cities do not have the timing right and you can miss some of the sights when the soundtrack is out of sync.
This was our 4th trip to Singapore and 2nd trip on the bus. The city is always changing so it worth doing the bus even if you have done it before.

“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

At Sing $8.00 per person this is a no brainier and puts all the others to shame. Clean modern vehicles, pleasant drivers, runs on time and easy route taking in all the major sites.

“Good price, lots of stops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

If you travel with Singapre airlines, show your boarding pass and for $S6 you can travel all day hopping on and off as many times as you like. the bus is always on time and the stops are never far from the major attractions
