Really great option to discover Basel in a glance!
Jul 2020
Loved the 'open' bus with open windows, giving a nice breeze on a hot summer day! Very friendly driver, good audio tour with a lot of interesting and fun facts about the history and present of Basel. Option to interrupt the tour for 1 - 2 hours on the way, then take the next bus, or do it in one go and still have the possibility to get off the bus for short photo stops on the way. Total tour is about 2 hours. Great opportunity to discover the town, also if only in town for just 1/2 a day.
I think it's really good value for money as well, definitely worthwile doing, getting a first impression of the town and then return to the parts that you liked most in a more slow paced way!

The red bus tour around Basel is definitely worth the time and euros although Basel isn’t that large there is still plenty to see and do

Perfect place to start your visit
On my first day in Basel it was absolutely pouring with rain so two hours seeing the city by bus was perfect while I dried off. There are a couple of stops where you have five minutes or so to take photos which was much appreciated. Driver was excellent, she even gave a very wet group a lift to the other side as the ferries weren't running due to the weather. Really liked the use of the iPad, handy for replaying parts I'd missed.

A quick trip through the city
Jun 2019
can give it a try if you are in for a short time in the city. It was provided at quite a discounted price along with the Basel City Pass so I gave it a try. The best part is that you can get off the bus, cross the river by a boat and hop on the other side of the river.

Excellent bus and guide
Oct 2019
With half off with your Basel card, you should do this. It isn't actually a hop-on, hop-off (I think you have to stay on), it's still a nice tour. Clean, new bus and tablets at every seat with additional information. Basel is a walkable city, and the best things to see are by foot, but this is a great overview on the first day.

Basel City sightseeing - a must have!
Nov 2019
After using city services for 2 days (congrats to Basel authorities- it really works and helps), the family decided to take the sightseeing - we were surprised; from a bus driver which speaks 5 idioms fluently (including Portuguese), to a great tour around Basel with valuable information. In fall and winter, there are only two trips a day. In the spring and summer, there are numerous trips that allow you to hop on any tourist spot to explore it and take the next bus and continue your journey. Include it in your script, it's worth it!

Basel City Tour....hop on hop off.
Oct 2019
This was a great way to see the city of Basel on a rainy day or if you only have limited time in the city. We were there 2 days and on the rain day we went on this tour and it was great. Good bus and audio tours in many languages.

Great way to see Basel!
Sep 2019
Sightseeing tour put on by the city of Basel. With our hotel we received 50% discount on our tickets. The tour lasted 2 hours, with an awesome bus driver negotiating very narrow streets and traffic! The audio was excellent quality all done through iPads with GPS. Most of the tour there was commentary on the audio. For $24 per person (with our discount), great way to spend 2 hours seeing sights and getting in some history of Basel. Highly recommend especially if you are mobility restricted (one member in our family has limited mobility).

This tour has the right idead but ipad / commuication needs to be worked on. However, when it works it is good. Goes to all the right places and you can hop on and off which is great.

Could be so much better
It is a two hour round journey. The bus goes every two hours, so if you get off, you need to wait another two hour
