A Great Way to See Seattle
, Sep 2019
I spent two days in Seattle before taking a cruise, and purchased a two-day ticket on the Big Red Bus Hop On Hop Off tours. I took two different tours, one each day, and saw everything in depth that I cared to see. The drivers were extremely knowledgeable about the city and about interesting little known sights. Everyone connected to the tours was eager to help with answers to questions. They made my visit extremely worthwhile.

Gave basic overview of the city. The audio was not in time with the sites Very impersonal. I have been on a lot of other hop on- hop off that the driver narrates the trip or at least add to the recorded narration.

it was nice, location was easily found, person , who stood at the stop was very helpful, explain all details, driver had a nice stories. The down-part was the traffic, so we stand in line for some time, but that was not predictable. Nice way to figure out what else you would like to see in Seattle, when you have more time
The drivers and tour guide made the difference

The Company struggles with keeping on time due to all the road constructions taking place in Seattle but their staff does a great job to inform about what to expect. I purchased the Hop On Hop Off tour that includes all the major sights with lots of interesting recorded narration. For only $20 extra I was upgraded to more tours including a 2.5 hours Scenic tour with a live guide. Spencer was both funny and experienced. The tour includes time to stroll around at Lake Union and time to walk to the Locks. Their buses aren't the newest but we had a good time thanks to the staff.
Sorry I paid my MONEY

It sucked....buses did not come by like promised. I had to catch a cab back to the space needle and I did not see the sights I wanted. It was a horrible experience.

not worth it
, Jun 2019
I was very disapointed specially after 2 buses one in SF and the other in Capetown who were so great. Please if you come outside the summer dont expect to get into this bus. begins at 11 and finish at 4pm, also its difficult to see the sign on the streets. I paid for two days and at the end I should take few times uber.
Great way to see Seattle

I would have given this 5 stars for the nice staff and the interesting information but they do not provide a map on line so you could find a stop near your hotel. Also, they need to extend the hours, they only give you 6 hours and in reality you can not get off too many places and get back to your original location in that amount of time.

This tour was a great way to see the city and determine where in the city we wanted to focus our attention. The tour started at the Space Needle and was never overly crowed and stayed on schedule. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city for the first time.
Just a Recording

Just a recording that was not properly synched and the app kept locking up. Too hot, A/C didn't work.
