Completely misleading, expensive and disappointing
Susanne_J
, Aug 2022
The title of the tour is misleading! Although the title reads ‘ Night Tour, Hop and Off Bus, optional walking tour and River Cruise. The river cruise is not included! £77 / 90 euros is a rip off. Please be aware that even under the heading what is included it still says river tour but in small print states with a ‘deluxe ticket’ . Very disappointed.

Don’t waste your money
Caitlin_T
, Aug 2022
Booked this ticket as we thought it was a great deal with the inclusion of the river cruise, but in the end we wasted our money. Not once were our tickets checked getting on the bus or before the walking tour. Each time I tried to show my ticket to the bus driver as we got on I was shooed away. This lead to us not realising that there were physical tickets that were supposed to be used, as we were never given one in the 2 days of using the bus. We found this out when we went to the river cruise and told we couldn’t get on with the online ticket I had been emailed. We were told to get on a bus and ask for the ticket, which we did. The bus driver then told us he didn’t know what we were talking about, he didn’t know anything about tickets and couldn’t give us anything. This led to us missing out on the river cruise due to lack of communication and the staff being incredibly unhelpful. This ruined an otherwise pleasant experience. We would have been better off just buying everything separately and not through the Big Bus Tours.

Boat was great

Best part: boat ride A lot of money for nothing no tour bus in town as part of tour, guide had to speak different langages Little historical info Guide her English minimal. Town pretty but way too much touristy junk.

Too hot, no headphones offered on getting on
Jonathan_H
, Jul 2022
The bus was like a greenhouse on the top deck and a hot box on the lower deck, We got on and were half way around the tour before we realised we were supposed to have been given/offered disposable headphones, so we missed half the tour and were not going to stay on to around again.

The heat cannot be helped....unless you equip the top with fans or a/c... but the heat is unusual these days!

Vienna makes the trip awesome! I always like to use HOHO busses when I get to a new place to scope it out quickly. My most memorable part of Vienna HOHO was that the bus seemed to 'waltz' with the Vienna waltzes being played! We all got a kick out of that! The heat was horrible, so I suggest doing tours in the morning!! Also, don't buy 3-day pass unless you are sure you'll need it. I didn't do the night-time (6:30 pm) because it wasn't dark yet!! I saw more from a night-time taxi ride. Do the boat trip if you can...just an extra fun thing to do! Also, be aware of timing of the last tour runs... I didn't know until someone told me that if you do the night tour, the busses stop running and you can't get back to where you originated that day! Not every city ends by 7 pm.

Great way to explore the city!

I went for the ultimate ticket that included the boat tour and walking tour. As a first time visitor to Vienna I thought it gave me a great overview of this beautiful city and allowed me to get my bearings. I enjoyed the boat tour and the food / drink on board but it was a little confusing exchanging my ticket and finding the boat etc. very peaceful when I finally got on board - not overly informative but a nice change of pace. I thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour with Michael - very informative and enjoyable. Overall I would recommend the extra benefits of the ultimate ticket.

Vienne hop on hop off
Frances_D
, Jul 2022
There was a lot of traffic. It took about 30+ minutes to switch busses. We had to be back at the ship at 4:00 and almost missed the ship because of all the traffic. Had to call the ship and notify the captain that we might be late. Tour was enjoyable, but stressful because of the time.

Why I will never use Hop on-Hop off on my life
s_h
, Jun 2022
First, viator was not responsible for this rating. The customer service at viator was INCREDIBLE! I will use them anytime. However, I never got to use the bus. Why- maybe there are actual stops, but we couldn’t find them. I asked no less than 6 people, tour guides, Vienna experts, and they had no idea. I saw 2 buses my entire time in Vienna. They are not easy or convenient and the customer availability is laughable. Use the metro- it’s inexpensive and easy, the opposite of the hop on- hop off bus experience.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear s_h! We regret that you where not satisfied with our service in Vienna and that finding the stops was so diffficult. We do provide over 20 stops throughout the city, they are shown in detail on our website where we also provide the exact address and a description of the stop surrounding. Customer can also use our paper map in order to find the stops or our Big Bus App. Nevertheless we hope you did enjoy Vienna! regards Big Bus Vienna

Strict Cancellation Policy and Inflexible customer service attitude
An_L
, Jun 2022
I had accidently booked a Bus-on-Bus-off in Vienna on my credit card on 6/1/2022 (same day as booking), when in fact we aren't scheduled to arrive in Vienna until June 14. Within 5 minutes of noticing the error, I contacted Viator and requested their assistance in amending date change. The associate (Abigael) was extremely helpful and advised that she would contact the tour operator for date change. Later, another associate contacted me advising me that Viator can't assist since their policy requires cancellation to be made 24-hour in advance. I mentioned that this isn't a cancellation but a date change. As these Hop-on-Hop-off tours run daily, activation of booking typically occurs at time of boarding, as we had experienced in other countries. The associate keeps stating this is company's cancellation policy. So, unless the tour operator in Austria reviews my request, and is willing to make a date change, we'll be out by $200.

1st Anniversary in Vienna
Andrew_D
, May 2022
Going on the Big Red Bus, hop on hop off tour, was an excellent way to see the city sights and to get your bearings, We went for the deluxe option which included a river cruise and and guided walk, We only used the bus and the river parts on our trip and where worth every penny. I would happily use this type of service again. Top marks to all, thank you.

It is a perfect way to see many wonderful attractions in a few days. Easy to get around and yet feel free to make your own choices. Also enjoyed the evening tour and the river cruise. Definitely a good decision to take the deluxe ticket.
