Overall rating

based on 6,741 reviews

Departing stop was easy to find, the staff was nice and friendly. Free wifi and headphones in your language with nice sites descriptions of what we were touring, also beautiful classical music all throughout the ride. We loved it!

It’s nice to see everything and get off and on wherever you want so you can see the place close and take pictures. We recommend to take the 48hour so you’ve time to get off and take pictures everywhere.

To be mentioned positively - the upper deck is currently closed & it is heated (pleasant with the currently low temperatures). Windows were very clean so that we could see everything well.

Perfect route. It was very interesting to tell about the sights. There was an opportunity to get off at stops, hum, then take the bus again

As in other European metropolises, a very meaningful and informative way to get to know a city and to quickly get an overview
