Tour details

The "Hop-on hop-off" double-decker bus tour is a new approach to city bus tours that have already been appreciated in many countries around the world. Nowadays this system operates in all major European cities.

A double-decker bus tour is a new type of sightseeing tour for Russia. It will be interesting both for guests of the capital who want to get acquainted with the historical center of Moscow in more detail, and for Moscow residents who decided to spend a pleasant weekend and admire the beauty of the city center. Moreover, for adults with children this type of tour is just a godsend! If the child is tired or naughty, you can always get off, take a walk, relax and then rejoin the route. For the elderly, a free ticket on a weekday is a wonderful opportunity to relax from everyday activities and admire the beauty that gives pleasant emotions.

Buses move at a low speed, giving visitors the opportunity to admire the capital and take memorable photos. Our buses cannot be confused with any other: they are double-deckers, red, with bright captions and pictures of the main attractions, with a half-open or open top.

Features and benefits of “hop-on hop-off” system.

The peculiarity of the system is that the tour is conducted not by a guide, but by a synchronous audio recording (audio guide), which the tourist listens to using disposable headphones. This bus combines the features and advantages of sightseeing and public transport. The person is not “tied” to a specific scheduled trip.

That is the advantage of our company. A tourist can get off at the bus stop, walk around the area, take pictures, relax, and then rejoin the trip on the next bus. You can jump off and jump on as many times as you like. This is so-called “hop-on hop-off” system.
