Big Bus Vienna Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

4.5

141 Reviews

Romantic architecture, Imperial-era landmarks, and delicious coffeehouses and cake shops make Vienna a gem to visit any time of the year. One of the best ways to discover the city’s delights is on a Big Bus that allows you to explore at your own pace. Enjoy your choice between classic, premium, and deluxe ticket options, offering upgrades such as a Danube river cruise and panoramic night tour by bus.
Two routes, 16 stops on the red and 9 stops on the blue route with 1.5-hour full-loop durations, can be used with your ticket. For those who want to sit back and relax, stay on board for the full duration, listening to the entertaining audio commentary as you go. If you want to explore Vienna on foot, hop on and off wherever, and whenever, you like. Buses for the Red Route run in every 20- 30 minutes from 9:30am and the Schönbrunn Blue Route is available every 30 minutes from 9:30am.
Your ticket is valid for one or two days (depending on option selected) from the time of first use, and you can use it as many times as you like during that time period. Travel to the Imperial Palace (Hofburg) to see the former home of the powerful Habsburg dynasty, or amble around Burggarten Court Garden to see monuments, statues and sculptures. Have your camera on hand to capture sights of St Stephen’s Cathedral (Stephansdom) in all its Romanesque glory, and hop off near the must-visit sites of Schönbrunn Palace, Maria-Theresien-Platz, Vienna State Opera and more.
If you prefer only to do the night tours, you can also book it separately! You can expect informative and entertaining live commentaries in English from a Tour Guide. The Tour lasts around 1h and is no Hop-on Hop-off Tour! Within this tour you will explore Vienna when dusk falls. You will go along the famous Ring Street, to the Prater, the Blue Danube and back to Stop 1 "Opera"

    My wife and I chose the 72 hour Hop On/Hop Off package, and it was great. Started using it the first afternoon we arrived on the Red Line, then caught the Night Tour that first night. The next day we did the Danube River boat tour, then more of the RedLine HO/HO tour of the city. Our final full day, we took the Red Line into the city center, and switched over to the Blue Line route to see a totally different side of Vienna. The narrated tours were great, and the live Night Tour was not only informative, but also very entertaining. Great way to see a new city and the major sites.

    I love going on these buses because of the ability to get on and off where you want. Unfortunately I didn't have time to get off due to a flight I had to catch that afternoon. But from what I could see on the bus from the outside was still very pretty. The 2 routes meet up at an ideal location and the routes don't overlap much.

    When visiting any city the HOP ON HOP off bus is a must and certainly Vienna was no different.
    We were able to experience the history of Vienna through clear head sets and get off at all the places we wanted to experince. Vienna is a large city and tjis made it verh accesable. We were only there a few days but this helped us get our bearing and discover all the beautiful buildings and the amazing Christmas markets

    Wow this voucher was excellent value for money. We did the deluxe 3 day tour which included a one hour walking tour with George who was very passionate about the city. The ticket also included a boat trip which was on a lovely boat called the Blue Danube. We sat inside up stairs which was beautifully decorated for Christmas and was lovely and warm. We had a few beers on the journey which lasted 90 minutes. You need to exchange your voucher for tickets before going to the boat but this was simple to do. The voucher also included a one hour guided night tour on the bus which was just delightful seeing Vienna all lit up at night for Christmas. There are two routes blue and Red which take you to all corners of the city and as long as you follow the map they have on board it is easy to work out where you need to get on and off depending on where you want to go. This tour was exceptional value for money and I would 100 recommend it to anyone visiting the city.

    Being able to get the bus ticket via Viator really saved us time and money! I love that hop-on hop-off tour buses are offered in so many cities. This allows you to get around to all the cities easily. I highly recommend the Big Bus tour!

    We love using the hop-on hop-off buses. Multiple routes. Informative, easy to use and perfect for getting around town. Highly recommended to all to get detailed history and information of the town one is visiting, along with transportation to all areas on their routes.

  • William C
    (September 20, 2017)

    Vienna is arguably the most beautiful city in the world. We took this tour on our first day and really enjoyed it. The bus route gave us a chance to see all of the city and get a feel for places we wanted to focus on later.

    (September 12, 2017)

    The Big Bus Vienna Hop-On Hop Off Tour experience was fabulous. We purchased a 48 hr. ticket and enjoyed having the freedom to get off and on wherever we wanted. Our Viking Boat was docked very near one of the stops and it was incredibly convenient to use the bus to get into the City Centre. Using the bus is a great way to see all the sights and then using specific stops afterwards.

    Easy to use! Wonderful way to see a beautiful city. Would highly recommend!
