For 34.84/person, this is not worth it at all. I recommend that if you would like a Hop-On Hop-Off Tour, it would be a good idea to pay a little more, and use the Red Tour version of the Hop-On Hop-Off Tour. This bus, the city sightseeing version, does not come frequently. So we were left waiting in the hot sun without air conditioning. Also, it starts when the whole bus is full. We saw the Red Tour version take off many times before we did. We also made a mistake in booking these in Tallinn, Estonia and Helsinki, Finland. The Estonia bus was not parked where they were supposed to be, and the wi-fi didn't even work on the Helsinki bus. Even the bus drivers were not friendly.
I recommend this tour to other travellers.
Since it's a hop on hop off we were able to visit different points of interest. There are 2 operational HOHO buses in Stockholm, one is RED bus and the other City Sightseeing. Both have the same color, almost the same stops and can be confusing. Ours was at Citysightseeing.
We booked this hop-on-off from Viator and not our cruise ship. The good news is that there were so many wonderful stops. The not so good news was the wait time for the bus. Also at one of the stops the driver shut down the bus and we had to wait 15 minutes before we took off again ?????. Because of the wait time we weren't able to spend as much time at a couple of our stops as we wanted because we needed to ensure that we got back to the ship in time for sail away. I believe the issue is that there were so many cruise ships in port that this hop-on-off bus company didn't add extra buses to the route. Too bad ... because there are so many incredible sites to see in Stockholm and we felt we didn't get a chance to see so many of them.
We loved seeing everything from the Royal Palace to the Vasa Museum on this comprehensive tour. If you need to pack in a lot of activities in a short period of time but still want some flexibility, this is the way to go. The guide was so adept at pointing out all types of attractions that would otherwise be missed such as the tiny, medieval theatre run by an 80-year old lady that seats only 8 people. Stockholm is a beautiful city full of surprises, so you won’t want to miss this!
