We often take hop-on/hop-off tours in a new city to get oriented. This tour (300 Swedish krona--$35 each, bus only) was one of the lamest. The commentary was very brief and general; some of the bus stops were not correctly marked on their map, one of our two earphone jacks was bent and wouldn't accept the plug; the windows are... More

This was a major disappointment as it was quite expensive-$50USD for a one day combination boat/bus ticket and the service was very poor. While initially a very convenient service with a choice of either their boat or bus near the cruise ship dock and a very pleasant view of the harbor, the complication began on the bus where there are...

Hello and thank you for your review. I'm glad you at least found Stockholm beautiful :) This is of course not how it's supposed to be though. The traffic in Stockholm can sometimes be bad and that means problems for the buses to get around. I hope you enjoyed your stay in Stockholm. Best regards Jakob More

We enjoyed the boat ride itself and the bus was okay too but they could be better organized with an online interactive time table so you can see the nearest stops and when the boat/bus is supposed to arrive. Would save valuable time and raise user satisfaction for sure.

This is the Hop on Hop Off bus line that is included in the Stockholm Pass. Buses ran relatively frequently (20-30 minutes), when they ran, but you need to be sure that you know the hours of services as they stopped early. This line has both red and green buses, which can be confusing since the other line has red... More

Hello and thank you for your review. I know that it can be confusing with two different types of buses, we try to make it as clear as possible which one is ours, one hint could be the "Grey Line" logo that only our buses are allowed to have in Stockholm. I hope you had a nice stay in Stockholm!... More

Wanted to catch as much of Copenhagen as possible so bought bus and boat package. Huge mistake. Buses were standing room only, with extremely long wait times. After waiting 45 minutes we couldn't get on one bus. The next was SRO but we got on hoping a seat would open up and the sound system was broken. All we saw... More

Our last day of our cruise trip was totally ruined by this tour bus operator. We bought the tickets outside the cruise ship terminal and boarded on the bus, only had to wait for a long time before our bus started up the engine, while multiple "red buses" from the other operator came and left the terminal. As the bus... More

For such a small city, beware, there are more than one hop on off bus services. This one is not as good as red bus because it has fewer busses which leads to unnecessarily long wait times. Also twice in a day we were dropped off in a random location because of a bus change but the substitute bus did... More

Hello and thank you for review. I'm sorry to hear that the buses caused inconvenience for you. Stockholm is, as you say, a small town with small streets and a lot of cars which unfortunately causes traffic jams sometimes.

We purchased the hop on hop off tour at the cruise ship terminal.

We waited over an hour for a bus that never came. The agents ran away when we questioned them as to the long wait. If it had not been for the kindness of one of the Red Bus agents who took us to the centre we would probably still be waiting. When we tried to get our money back, even... More

Waited for 50 minutes at Stop 19 around noon. I think the green bus may have flown past us as we were looking for a red one, and had not been told they also have green ones Doubly frustrating because three " The Red Bus" (i.e. wrong hoho ) also passed in this period, and there is no sign indicating...
