A chose The Big Bus tour as I could pick it up from outside of my hotel, it was very hot whilst I was in Singapore and I didn't want to have to walk to far to find the bus stop. The two tours where great and gave me a good view of both the old and new towns with the ability to hop on and off where I wanted to.
I bought a one day ticket from the driver on the bus, they only take cash, not cards so make sure you have cash with you. Keep your ticket safe as you need to show it each time you get back on.
When you first get onto the bus you are given headphones which you can plug in and you get a commentary of where you are and what you are seeing. The jazz music played in between was a bit repetitive.
The drivers where all very helpful and shouted out stops just in case you where listening to the commentary.
Everywhere I go in the world if they have a hop on/off bus I will always use it, I think it is a fantastic and cost effective way to get round where you are visiting

We really enjoyed our day on and off the bus but getting off and on was quite time consuming.The app was most helpful and showed where we were in real time.could do Lear bus stop signs at the pick up points,we were left to guess most of the time. We didn’t listen to the commentary,when I tried there was some jazzy music instead. Best way to see the city if you have limited time, we got our tickets from the hotel,they said it was cheaper that way.
We spent the first part of the day on the bus,then ended up having sundowners on the viewing deck of the Marina bay sands hotel.amazing.then took in the super trees and light show,cloud forests etc. A fabulous day!

We'd like to share that the relevant audio commentary will play as soon as the buses passes the landmarks, but otherwise its filled with music in between. We're really glad to hear that you feel its the best way to see the city if we have limited time. We look forward to seeing you again, or in one of the 23 great cities that we operate in.

The routes the 4 different line took were very interesting and the commentary via the onboard system was excellent. The drivers in general were accommodating but at times were a bit rude. The organization at the main bus terminal "Sunlec" was a somewhat confused, but all in all I would reccommend this as a way to see Singapore city.

This is a perfect way to discover and admire the beauty of Singapore if you have limited-time to stay. On the bus you can listen to the stories and information to learn more about the city and its heritage. And yes we have walked 3 times around the wealth fountain ⛲️ 😀.
First of all we were the first couple on the hop on hop off bus after they have resumed their operations due two years shutdown due to covid - we felt extremely happy and honored
We tooked two rides red and yellow.
Drivers were informative and friendly as well the staff at the terminal
We only had one day to discover Singapore and we loved it. In a short time (one hr each ride) we got familiar we the attractions the city can offer. We admired the beauty of nature. We had a chance to use the bus as well for all rides to our hotel, covid test facility, shopping and hopon/off at the attractions we went to see.
We love the ride and the city so much and hoping to be back one day
We wish you lots of travelers that would love your services as we did and lots of prosperity ✨️ 😊

I have done hop on hop off bus tours in lots of other countries/cities and this was by far the worst. It didn’t start well as we booked on line with City sightseeing. We followed the instructions to get to suntec city mall and couldn’t find any sign of them. We could only find the Big Bus. So after wondering around for a while we decided to ask them if they knew where we needed to go to collect our tickets. Turns out it was the same company. They are going through a ‘branding exercise’ so you could end up on different buses.
Once we got on the bus and got off at our first stop we realised that the drivers didn’t operate like elsewhere. They insist on all passengers exiting the bus and those boarding to go through the front door. We have been used to exiting passengers leaving by the double middle doors. In addition the driver didn’t stop people getting on until those who wanted to leave got off, so as you can I,gained it was chaotic. When we came to want to get back on the bus we had to wait quite a long time. The schedule says 15 to 20 mins, but it was often longer than that. The traffic is always bad in the city but the schedules don’t seem to allow for it.
The commentary, via the headsets, was, when we got it, not particularly informative. I can’t believe there wasn’t more to say and the same piece of classical music did get quite irritating. I say when we got commentary. We boarded at least 2 different buses where we couldn’t get anything at all. It would also have been useful if the commentary had stated what stop number was coming up. The driver had to do this.
So all in all disappointing. We did end up walking quite a bit as it was better than standing waiting. So for the few mourners we did I’m not sure we got our monies worth.

Six of us wanted a good overall view of Singapore before setting out on our own. We chose the Yellow route and Red route tours which gave us an ample opportunity to see the highlights of this magnificent city. It was decided to spend our time on this excursion over a two day period. All of us (active seniors) were more than satisfied with our experience. Discounted tickets are available if you pre-purchase online or through some of your hotel staff.

We utilised the big bus hop on hop off buses for 48 hours this March during the coronavirus crisis. All of the staff were in high spirits despite what was going on and incredibly helpful. Winston at suntec city was a blessing - he remembered our names every day and told us several places to see that we didn’t even consider. The routes are super handy and in my opinion the best way to see Singapore! Keep up the good work through the tough tikes team. 110% recommend for all tourists!

The drivers go so fast that you can’t even take pictures. If you are listening to the audio guide you miss everything because they drive so fast that by the time you are hearing the info the driver has already past the location. You need to know your stops in advance because the driver does not announce the stops. I paid for 48hrs & did not use it for the 48 hrs. Waste of money! Very Disappointed!

We had two days to spend in Singapore so we thought it would be a good idea to buy a two days pass. It wasn't.
First day we wasted more time waiting for the buses than visiting places of interest. The cherry on top was the fact that the buses stop working after 5.30pm, when it's a bit cooler and more enjoyable to go around.
Second day we just used local taxis and, albeit a bit more expensive but not by much (for two people), we managed to visit a lot more.

We took the Big Bus Hop On Hop Off and it was a disaster.
When we decided to return to our hotel around 4pm we were left to take a taxi.
We waited over 1 1/2 hours with 5 other couples and some had babies in very hot weather.
Bus after bus drove by full.
We ended up taking a taxi to our hotel.
I complained to the company about this and they would not reply with a corrective action.
Apparently this happens every afternoon.
