About Open Kiev - Day Tours
Hop-on hop-off double-decker bus tours in Kiev. Open Kiev tourist bus is a great possibility to enjoy Kyiv from the height. The tour is comfortable whatever the weather; in case it rains the double-decker covers its top in an instant. During the wintertime we give to our guests warm blankets and a nice cup of tea.

Paid nearly £35 for 2 people online on a Saturday, ( fyi thats 20 hours wages in Kiev ) only told then via the ticket that they have 1 bus running and runs 2 hourly , from 11 am till 7pm we had our first trip at 1pm as we were busy at 11, met the bus at Maidan at the listed start point . The bus is very very old and is need of minor repairs to the interior... Went round for the full trip which was quite interesting. Got back to Independence Square at 2.30 told by operator that the bus was finishing early get off now ... I asked why ? She told us not our problem and we can use ticket tomorrow, which wasn't any use to us as we were coming home on Sunday . Contacted head office via email they responded by saying they had to contact the regional office in Kiev for an explanation. 4 days later still no response. Still waiting for a refund. Have had great tours with Hop on Red bus in several places and have been really good . Book a private tour with an English speaking Taxi , better value for money and will only cost £30 for 4 people

I really enjoyed the tour in this amazing city. The great opportunity to explore Kyiv, especially if it’s your first time here. Loved all the places and new information from this tour as it helped us to make our own rout for the next couple of days in Kyiv. Only remark is that WiFi didn’t work. But all in all it was cool. Thanks!

Complete rip off. First day we went to board the bus we were told three of the seven buses were booked for a private tour so there would be no bus between 13:00 and the last bus at 17:00. Second day told bus would go every two hours so only three trips that day. They should go every hour, but they were charging full price both days (approx £13.50 each). The first bus should leave at 11.00, the stop is in Kreschatyk Street in front of the Mr Grill restaurant, there are no signs for the bus stop at any stop and every stop except the first is a request stop so there is no use thinking you will get off at one stop walk to the next stop and get on there because you will not know where the bus stop is, we tried it and failed. Unless you are at the correct place they will not stop. The bus has very high windows upstairs and unless you stand you can only take photos through the window. This is by far the worst hop on hop off bus tour that I have ever been on, I am nearly 70 and have been on dozens of these tours all over the world, this was beyond awful. It would probably be cheaper getting a Uber everywhere.

I was planning on taking the hop on hop off bus tour in Kiev for the following day. I seen a bus pull up at Independence square and the doors where open. I stepped on the bus and took a map to check which route the bus travels only for the driver on the bus to snatch the map from my hand, close the door which hit my back and shut the window on me. I can honestly say I would never use this service with the completely rude and aggressive attitude which this driver had. Very worrying these people are working in a customer service role to apparently help tourists. RUDE RUDE staff! avoid this company! Picture attached of the bus at independence square today. Hope this man gets better training in customer service.

I was in Kiev for 2 days and spent the first day looking for the bus stop signs, of which I was to discover there was only one at the first stop. The first stop was really hard to find and I had to use google maps to try to narrow down where to actually find the stop (even asking locals they did not seem to know) - for those interested it was near the Star-burger. They only take cash and the staff were not helpful at all. The bus did not stop at the stops and the audio was repetitive.
