      As someone who usually rides the local hop-on/hop-off bus to orientate myself around a new city I was appalled at the lack of customer service at the Munich Haunanhof Office for the Citysightseeing Munich Bus.

      When I raised a query regarding online payment, the three staff refused to assist or to provide their names in support of my email seeking reimbursement.

      Dismissive and rude - not what you would expect from a tourist service provider coming out of covid

      Instead of paying €25, we simply got a day travel card for €7 and toured the sights ourselves

      Disappointing lack of customer care

      I have previously use hop on hop off buses in many other cities, all very informative & enjoyable. This was the worst trip ever. Crew unhelpful & discourteous. Map useless, very little info, did not match commentary, impossible to follow. Staff either shouted at passengers trying to board bus or totally ignored them. Will definitely not use again or recommend. I even advised potential customers waiting for bus "Not to bother, not worth any money". You need to seriously improve your game. Two very unhappy customers.

      Really disappointing tour. We had wanted to book the City Tour ( 7 stops) but could only start after 2pm according to the booking form. So booked the higher price 24 hour tour. Not clear from the map or information given exactly where the bus stops were, but finally boarded the Red Route at H3, Marienplatz. We sat upstairs, waited for the next stop, which should have been H4, but there were no announcements and the bus didn't stop. The tape the said the next stop was H5, the Deutsches Museum, so we planned to get off there - but the bus didnt stop again! It then went straight back to the station at H1! We found out afterwards that due to construction works they were unable to stop at various places, but we weren't warned about this, there is nothing on the website to say the tour had been reduced. So we got on again, and the bus stopped at plenty of traffic lights but there were no further announcements about other stops at all, either from the driver or the commentry, so we just sat on the bus for an hour. Total waste of money, we'd have been much better off getting the metro and exploring under our own steam. Would not recommend.

      There are three routes for the hop on hop off bus and you get to see plenty of different neighborhoods in the city. A 24 hour ticket was 28 Euro. If you don't like hop on hop off buses then you won't like this, but if you do then this is one of the better ones I have been on.

      ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE!!!! The girl who works at the main pick up location is an absolutely disgusting person. She refused to answer our questions and said that we were stupid Americans. She then proceeded to chase us down the street when we asked for her name and took a picture of her. She would not let us leave and continued to pull on my dad. I would 100% NOT recommend this hop on, hop off.

      Don’t waste your money. You spend hours sitting on the bus waiting for it to move and then it doesn’t stop at the stops. I appreciate that there are roadworks in Munich at certain locations which might prevent a stop, but not all. You’re better off starting at Marienplatz and walking or taking the S-Bahn.

      We rode the bus twice to make sure it wasn’t just our first bus driver that didn’t stop.

      I’d have been more satisfied flushing my €46 down the toilet..

      We enjoyed getting to know the city from the hop on hop off bus. It was a rainy day, so the top was closed. We were able to see everything they were talking about. The commentary was fine. We did not choose to get off, but rather road the entire route. We had purchased our tickets online ahead of time and had no problem at the ticket office getting a ticket and your phones. We rode the bus and did each of the three tours one right after another, which gave us no problem with wait time. A more detailed map would be helpful. You can easily take the underground to the central train station in order to begin the journey. There’s no need to take a taxi to get to them. you would never be able to take a train and see all of these sites and learn about them on your own. Take the hop on hop off bus, sit back and learn about a new city.

      I really recommend to avoid this sightseeing bus company. I visited Munich in July 2021, still Covid pandemic and yet they completely shrouded in chaos. They can not control the flow of the people, you need to wait for another bus, loose time. Once on a bus it is impossible to find a seat. And I am talking about the whole bus, don’t even dream about the upper deck. Unless you are really rude and go over the heads. The bus was dirty, jacks for the earphones broken, staff is not helpful and lying about the times you need to wait. Don’t come near this bus if you want to keep the good mood going :)

      My father is 95 yo and I imagined that Panoramic Hop-On Hop-Off Tour was a valid option for him to discover München. During the morning, we made the Express circle and then walk from Stachus to Marienplatz. After lunch, we get back on the bus at Marienplatz to return to Stachus with the intention to carry on the grand circle to Schloss Nymphenburg and the Olympia Park. Unfortunately, the bus didn't return to Stachus, we had to walk more than one kilometer and upon arrival, my father was exhausted. We were then told than the next bus for the Olympia Park would leave within half an hour… 30 minutes later, the same message was communicated. We abandoned.

      If you want to show München to a elder person, park you car nearby the surf spot in the English Garden and book a rickshaw tour. You will visit the garden and the city center in much better condition than in the middle of the traffic jams were the imperial buses stay.

      My family bought tickets for the CitySightseeing bus in Munich.
      And the first bus driver didn’t let us inside the bus, he didn’t even want to check out tickets.
      It happened on 31.07.2023 at 16:16 on the Max-Joseph Platz. Disappointed.
