Tried to use it just to get from one point of sight seeings to another, but had to wait for a bus for 50 minutes (it was 2 pm on Monday, and the official site says time between two buses is 20 mins). Stuff was not really friendly.

It's probably worth noting this is not run by the same company who do the hop on/off services in other major cities (I've had great experiences with them) We arrived to find two buses waitibg at a stop and were told to board the latter. (The first appeared to be a private booking). We purchased tickets after a few minutes... More

Price was reasonable, long wait between buses, sound system didn't work and stops difficult to find. Also hard to know where you are with no information.

There's so much history and architecture in Bucharest, it couldn't not have an open-top sightseeing bus. Problem is that the service is pretty awful. The earpiece and receiver didn't seem to work, and there's no speaker system on the bus offering a shred of information, and that includes announcing which stop you're at. It managed to skip a couple of... More

Currently approx 6/7 US Dollars for a 24 hour ticket (runs 1000-2200ish). This bus loop takes about 45 mins with 15 stops at the obvious sightseeing stops and for that as with all these hop on hop off tours, provides a good service for lost or weary tourists.

As most other reviewers have said already, this bus tour is a bit hit and miss but gives you a way to drive around the city for an hour. The bus didn't have audio, so most people just stared out the side, others with a keen interest had downloaded the information from the izi travel app. (get the link from... More

This tour only costs 25 Lei per person, and the ticket lasts for 24 hours. So it is a good way to travel between attractions such as the Village museum, People's palace etc. I didn't bother with the audio guide due to the bad reviews given before, but you get a detailed map which lets you know what everything is....

Tickets are 25 RON per adult. Got on first bus to discover that it did not have audio. Attendant said to hop off at next stop as bus behind had audio. Got off and waited 40 minutes for next bus.
