3 day pass worthwhile
Jul 2021 • Couples
The morning walking tour and boat ride that comes with the three day pass were excellent! The bus was good and had helpful historical information. With the three day pass we didn't feel so rushed to see everything that day.

Not much time to spend in Vienna but Big Bus made possible to see a lot.
Nov 2019
We only had two days to explore Vienna. We bought the 48-hour ticket and on the first day, we did the whole tour, on the second day we did a few stops where we wanna see with more time.

good & not-so-good...
Sep 2020
Due to the virus they only ran 1 bus every hour which meant that the whole concept of hop-on-off did not work as it would have taken us all day to view only 6 sites... anyway we decided to sill consider it but expected a lower rate... Only thought so! Full rate; the only positive thing to say is that there hardly any tourists on the bus so we had a quiet time. But still one of the best ways to see Vienna!

Walking Tour with Charles is a MUST
Oct 2020 • Couples
The Big Bus Tour itself is great but what changed our trip was the Walking Tour with Charles as our guide! I could max out the character limit with how phenomenal he was, but in short if you’re in Vienna you MUST do the walking tour with him. You have not seen Vienna unless you’ve been toured by him, we could’ve listened to him talk all day. Frankly, we wish he would just travel with us 24/7! I can’t sing enough praise of Charles’ performance, Big Bus is insanely lucky to have him - the ticket price is worth it for him alone!

Fantastic walking tour with Charles and great time riding with BigBus!
Oct 2020 • Couples
We did both the Big Bus hop on hop off tour, and the walking tour with Charles. Charles was FANTASTIC, very knowledgeable and very funny. You can tell he has a real passion for this city and he is a wealth of knowledge for those looking to truly dive into the history of Vienna’s beginnings and history regarding the monarchy, arts and culture, and politics. Thank you again Charles and BigBus for making our trip to Vienna very memorable.

We spend nice weekend in Vienna. The city is really cool. Sadly not very much people are in the town, but good for visitors. We took your big bus tour. Hop on hop of is very good. Thanks to you we get know Vienna. We saw whole centrum. And I really appreciated language choice, because we are international family. I recommend.

It does what it says on the tin!
Jul 2020
During the COVID days, we were pleased to see this tour actually operating. Fewer tourists, so fewer buses. Only one an hour, in fact. The buses are good, with decent audio quality. Friendly staff everywhere. We bought the 3 day package. However, the Red Route did not connect to the boat tour, meaning we had to wait for nearly an hour at the jetty. The DDSG boat tour is not great! A bit of Danube, 20 minutes in the lock and then a smaller river. We were promised a 110 minute boat ride, which turned into a 70 minute boat ride only.

Dear JuRut! We are happy that you choose Big Bus Tours Vienna in order to explore the city and we are happy to read that our service did meet your expectations. For the boat tour, you can choose 1 out of 3 tours. We are sorry that you were not satisfied with the River Cruise Service, but we hope we can welcome you soon again on board of Big Bus Tours maybe in a different city. kind regards Big Bus Vienna

Staff was so rude!
Mar 2020
I have visit Vienna 10-13.03 (before coronavirus hit us) and we were never explained the tickets. We also want to purchase tickets from the lady on the street but she gave us higher price than online due to lack of 0.50 in prices. So of course we went online for 2x day premium ticket. They scanned our online tickets and gave us yellow ones (like a confirmation?). Then on the 2nd time one guy asked us to show not QR code but the yellow receipts. I thought I lost mine and as no one said to us to keep it - we never did. The guy on the street said :I'm not gonna argue with you - and I said well me too, you can see QR code, you can see purchase, you can see my card being charged and date when this was used. So 48 h did not pass yet and you are blaming me for YOU not explaining me the rules." He just said that he will check with his colleague to make sure this is explained but nothing to help us was done. This is how good representatives are on the streets. God luck using them.

Dear aniaruthi! We would like to thank you for your honest words about your experience with Big Bus Vienna. As soon as our colleagues scan the QR Code you will get a yellow paper strip which is your bus ticket. There was obviously a lack of communication. We are very sorry for that. We should have explained this more in detail and arguing with our customers does definitely not belong to our customer service principles. Beside your experience with Big Bus Vienna we hope you had a memorable holiday in Vienna. regards Big Bus Vienna
