Good way to see the town. Some confusion with competing buses (Hop-on vs City Sightseeing)

Reviewer: Louis Cossette
Great experience on Hop on, Hop off busses, with multilingual audioguides. Due to limited time we had to make choices amongst all the city has to offer. We visited the Vasa Museum and went to the Royal Palace in time for the changing of the Gard. Very happy with our choices.

Enjoyed using the bus during a short stay on our cruise. Found the frequency of the busses to be great so we could get off, check out a sight, and find a bus without a lengthy wait.

Exactly as advertised and exactly as expected. You get an excellent overview of Stockholm and are able to get off at the Vassa Museum - a must see!
