The headphones are small and there was a weird smell. The reviews for the building were pretty good.

Easy pickup and drop off. We were only here for two days and this your was a great overview of what Basel has to offer. The price was reasonable too.
A complete waiste of time and money..

Not a true Hop ON Hop OFF tour. Very poor tour. There's no time to make photos. Only ten minutes on stop #3, is a complete joke. I would not advise this tour to anyone.
This was an enjoyable, comfortable...

This was an enjoyable, comfortable tour . Basel is a beautiful City. My travel companion left her purse on the bus and we were able to retrieve it when the dricver was finished for the day. How thankful and pleased in his effort to get the purse back to her.

"hopp on and off" Bezeichnung trifft nicht wirklich zu im traditionellen Sinn
, Nov 2019
-Erklärungen sehr ausführlich und informatif, gut -ich verstehe ausländische Touristen die enttäuscht sind über Bezeichnung "hopp on and off", dazu müssten wohl viel mehr Busse verkehren und das System grundlegend angepasst werden, vielleicht kann ich eine Stellungnahme erwarten -gut, dass die App auf dem Smartphone noch nachgehört werden kann, allerdings wären die Erklärungen ohne Unterbruch, d.h. ohne die einzelnen Stationen anzutippen, sehr erwünscht

Guten Tag, danke für das Feedback. ACHTUNG: Wir verkaufen den Bus nicht als Hop-on, Hop-off sondern als Bus mit der Möglichkeit die Tour an jeder Haltestelle zu unterbrechen und zwei Stunden später wieder zu zusteigen. Wir freuen uns, dass Ihnen der Inhalt der Tour gefallen hat. Der Audioguide und der gesprochene Inhalt ist das wichtigste der Tour - da freuen wir uns drüber.
