I enjoyed seeing the city; however the company could update their website, pamphlets or even make an announcement on the bus to inform ticket holders that their buses may not run if less than 10 people are occupying them and to inform you of when the buses stop running. At 3PM I got off at a designated stop to get on the Basilica bus only to learn that it’s last pick up is at 2:30 (not indicated on the map). Then I got back on that bus to head to the designated stop where I could transfer to the Sur bus. After waiting at the stop for about twenty minutes, a Turibus employee informed me that the bus may arrive in another hour but she doubts they will continue with service because less than 10 people were onboard.

I understand we are all adjusting to this pandemic and have to be flexible and patient. I just think as a company they could have communicated better on their website, pamphlets/maps or via an announcement on the buses.

The bus is a great way to see a lot of MC in a cheap way. However the traffic is crazy. I knew that, but when you start a tour at 5PM with the announcement: this tour takes at least 4 hours! And this bus stops at 9PM and there is no opportunity to get back to the previous bus anymore that is a little annoying. Make that clear when entering the bus, so I could have made another decision. Also the explanations could have been a little more elaborate especially when you have to wait such long times in traffic.

Dear boekenwurm88, As mention in your comment traffic sometimes can be very hectic and that may cause affectations and slower our service. Kindly take note that we strive to minimize the impact on our service and make sure that our buses run as smooth as possible. I hope you had a lovely stay in Mexico. Sincerely. SusanaJT.

But..... the bus didn't stop at the last four stops and I had to do the tour again. This time asking the driver to stop at all stops please. This "cost" me two hours. The tour is cheap and convenient and a must do early in your visit.

First issue was they said the buses come every 20 minutes. In reality it is at least an hour sometimes longer between buses. Its a long slog through traffic and at one stop the bus driver decided to go for his lunch break leaving us all sitting on the bus for 20 minutes. Just make sure you really, really want to get off at a particular stop because you may be there for a long, long time. The map doesn't remotely resemble the actual city so hard to tell where you even are.

I had read some of the reviews prior to arriving in Mexico City and was really hesitant to try the hop on hop off bus. However, I figured the tickets were cheap enough, why not try it for myself and see what all the fuss was about.

I am SO glad I ended up going. The hop on hop off bus is exactly what you would expect it to be and definitely at the same level of service as any hop on hop off bus you might take in an international city.

Firstly, buying tickets was extremely easy. There were staff members ready to help at the stop and even spoke English with us which made it even easier. We bought the one day pass and it comes with all 5 of their routes. We were provided a map and headphones.

Second, the buses were clean and efficient. We had no problems with the headphones and listening to the English commentary. The stops were clearly marked along the routes and we never had to wait very long for a bus to come along.

Yes, you have to be mindful of your time and the traffic is pretty gnarly in the city. With that being said, we spent all day cruising around on three routes.There is just SO much to do and see. I wish we had bought a 2 day pass or something like that and then we could have broken the routes up instead of cramming them all into 1 day.

If you are a fan of hop on hop offs (I typically do them in every city for fun), I definitely recommend checking it out. It is a great way to see the city and learn from the commentary.

Know before you go: First, we collected a brochure about Turibus which said we could buy tickets for it on any of their buses at any of their stops, but that is not true. We tried and were told by a bus driver that you must buy them at the zocalo from a stand with a red umbrella. We did a lot of unecessary walking until we found this Turibus ticket stand.
Second, once on board, no one told us there were earphones available for use to listen in languages other than Spanish. Only when we had reached Stop 2 and asked some English speaking tourists on the bus, did these kind tourists show us where the earphones were, where to plug them in, and what channel to select.
A bit better attention to detail on the part of Turibus would have made this a more pleasant experience for us. Once we were past these two, time consuming mishaps, everything was fine.

Few buses, long wait, apps don’t track the actual bus location. We waited for an hour and 2 Capital tour buses passed by while we waited.

A number of the headphone plug ins on the bus don’t work so you don’t know what’s you are seeing

Dear wandereringjen, Thank you for sharing your experience on board Mexico City Tour. While we try to the best of our ability that the buses comply with the specified timings, please notice that those can be affected for reasons beyond our control (such as traffic jams, demonstrations, events taking place in the city, etc.). Regarding the audio service, we regret that you could not enjoy it. Although our buses are frequently exanimated in order to make sure that all of the features are working properly, unfortunately, this kind of issues may appear during the day. Anyway, we are going to report this issue in order to make sure that this situation is not repeated in the future. Sincerely,

20 million people, 8 in the "center", mix of old and spectacular new glass and steel towers. Endless monuments. Good open air top floor, english audio for descriptions. A must for a quick overview.

First day we were here we got on the bus. A great way to see the city. The red tour is the best with the yellow being second best. The other two tours were not really interesting. Friendly staff, most spoke English. A great way to get to the museums and other special spots. We were here during the Dec/Jan holidays and didn't have any problems - but we got on at 9am. Late afternoon they were really busy.

I would never ever EVER recommend this company.
We booked our tickets on line. We printed them out. We stood a the stop for 20 minutes. The bus approached. We waved our tickets. The bus kept going. We ran after the bus waving our tickets. The bus kept going. We waited for another 20 minutes. No bus. We walked from our hotel (Marquis Reforma) to the Anthropology museum (25 minutes). Ah! Finally another buts appears. (I'm steaming mad by this time).
We hop on. The host takes our tickets. We ask for the head phones. We were told to wait until he finished what he was doing. We found a seat. We went back and asked again. Got the head phones this time. 2 minutes later the bus pulls into the parking area and we're told to get off as the bus will now wait here.
We get off. We stand in front of the ticket seller stand while the ticket sellers and the guide kiss kiss and talk to their friends. We wait. And wait. I snap and demand some help. (I'm even more angry by now). We're told that the bus to Polanco will be another 30 minutes. I explain about the bus not stopping and having to walk and demand my money back. Surly staff tell me it's impossible and go back to kiss kiss and talking to their friends. We proceed to walk to the Soumaya. (35 minutes).
The app is complete garbage.
There is no way to find a schedule of the stops. (Just a vague statement about buses coming every 15 minutes. A complete lie by the way).
I paid for 3 people and was on the bus for a total of 10 minutes. Ended up walking everywhere we wanted to go. Pointless waste of money. Take Ubers, they're cheap and easy.
