"Vienna Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour" Vienna Tourist Trap Tip by marciaca

Vienna Tourist Traps: 118 reviews and 86 photos

In order to see a lot of Vienna in a short amount of time, we took the Vienna hop-on hop-off bus tour. I had taken one in Dublin, but enjoyed it. I didn't really enjoy this one for the following reasons:
1. It was not "open-top" so taking photos through glass usually includes a reflection.
2. There was an audio guide instead of the driver talking. If you had do desire to take pictures, it is okay. However, the audio guide would start just as you are passing the historic monument, which is not early enough to take a photo.
3. The buses come rather infrequently, usually only once per hour.

Fun Alternatives: It's still hard to find an alternative if you want to see a lot of Vienna in a short amount of time. If you do have time, take the U-bahn around.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
