Waste of money (for me)
I basically wanted a bus ride of the City. We are only here a day and not very mobile. The ad said it was an hour ride. Fit the bill. Our experience? Just missed the bus near the hotel by 10 seconds. Driver wouldn't let us on 30 meters from the stop. Next bus was 45 minutes. Went back to the hotel to wait. Got bus finally at 3.30. Then bus stops arbitrarily at one stop for 30 minutes. That bus then became the last bus of the day at 5pm!!!! The service stops at 5? So waited on the bus for it to start again. Swung by the Palace and back to the hotel. Very expensive bus rude. I could have got a personal horse and coach tour for the same price. For me, infinitely better value. Don't know why I used this company again. Took their Paris tour with the same issues plus that bus broke down (the French buses were on their last leg). Just feel fleeced. And... The English sound track is really irritating...

Worse city bus tour ever
We paid 35€ which is currently $41 US for a 24 hour tour. We only had one day in Vienna to explore. The audio commentary was the best part of the trip. It was hard to hop on and off because although the bus was scheduled to come every 45 minutes it was late every time. We did more waiting than riding so we only got to do the blue route because it was too late in the day to do the red route after all the time waiting. Not enough buses to make it run smoothly. Too much money for the tour we got. Very disappointed

Great Way to Get City Overview
Sep 2021
We wanted to see the city and so bought the 1 day pass in mid afternoon -- took the Red line the first day, and because it is a 24-hour pass, we took the blue line on day two. They give your earbuds, and have narration all the way and it was a great overview and helped us decide where to spend our time.

Great experience
Aug 2021 • Couples
We took a night tour with BigBuss in August 2021 and we enjoyed every moment. The guide (Charles) is very funny and storytelling about each building on the Ring with both historical and funny stories. I recommend this tour at the begging of your Vienna trip to make an idea of the things you can visit.

Great value good guides.
We bought the 3 day pass and it worked out great. Rode red line one dat then did the narrated night trip that night. Great guide, the next day we took the blue route and roamed the city. Day 3 we said the walking tour with the same guide that was excellent and took one of the river cruises. I kind of wished we had done the river cruise at stop 15 instead of stop 8.

Would happily recommend

Not frequent enough, not according to app
We bought the tickets as there were loads of stops around Vienna and we downloaded the app to be able to keep track of the buses. We thought it would be frequent and easy to get around from attraction to attraction, but we were horribly mistaken. Buses were so infrequent, there was barely one or two for the whole city. Each bus would arrive at the stop after 45 mins or an hour, so if you missed the bus you were stuck waiting for ages. Sometimes, it just made more sense to walk to the actual attraction as it was quicker than waiting for the bus to arrive then actually get to the right stop. Also, the app would say that the bus wasn't moving and it was , or that the bus was arriving at a certain time and it would arrive too early then leave before the set time on the app. Twice we rushed to the stop that said the bus was arriving in say 14 mins only to get there (within that time) and find it leaving. Don't book this bus, it's a waste of money and time. Its very easy to walk around Vienna from one place to another.

A great way to visit Vienna with family
Jul 2021
We are a family with 3 kids (9, 11, 13 yrs old) and all of us enjoyed this way of sightseeing a lot. Our kids loved sitting on top of the double-decker bus. The bus really allows you to explore hidden secrets of the city, while you can have some rest between visiting the famous places. This was the very first time we used such service and it was a very positive surprise, beyond expectations. The boat trip and the personal guided tour were also both excellent. Highly recommended.

3 day pass worthwhile
Jul 2021 • Couples
The morning walking tour and boat ride that comes with the three day pass were excellent! The bus was good and had helpful historical information. With the three day pass we didn't feel so rushed to see everything that day.

It is our goal to give our customers a good overview about Vienna and indeed with our 3 day Deluxe ticket you have enough time to explore the city on your own path. Hope to see you again at any other Big Bus destination worldwide. Regards Big Bus Vienna
