When we travel there are certain “go-to” activities we gravitate towards. Exploring a new city with a Hop on Hop off Bus (HoHo Bus), is one of those things for us. It is wonderful to do with kids and takes you right where you need to go. Keep on reading to see where we’ve enjoyed the HoHo Bus on our family travel adventures.
Hop On Hop Off Around The World!
Fun family experience and you get to learn along the way. We have even seen people use these as a time for rest and possibly even a little snooze in the back!
Just like any other holiday in a big city, we enjoyed the hop on hop off Athens! This time we had the 3-day pass and used it every day! From the Acropolis to the Port of Piraeus, we had a great time. Read more about our hop on hop off bus tour in Athens!
This time it wasn’t the bus, it was the Hop on Hop off river cruise. It was the ideal way for us to get around Paris. There were 9 stops along the Seine. Read more about our adventures in our post about Christmas in Paris with teens!
It was time to explore another city in Spain, while on our 8-week European road trip. This time we were riding the double-decker Santander Bus. Yes, it’s the Santander Hop on Hop off bus tour, but this time we created a twist.
As you know we aren’t big organized tour people, but there are a few tours we do love and will take them any chance we get. This time it was the Valencia Hop On Hop Off Bus!
Kuala Lumpur Malaysia
We arrived in Kuala Lumpur, and it’s a big city. We explored our area a bit on foot, but there’s no better way to get a good feel for the city than by using the Kuala Lumpur Hop on Hop off bus. Being able to get on and off the bus for 24 or 48 hours is very convenient. Yes, many locations are easy to access by taxi or car, but the bus provides you with commentary as well, so you learn as you go.
If you know the Wagoner Family, you know we love to take Hop on Hop off Bus when we can. We find it fun and easy to get around a location with the kids this way and it has yet to disappoint us. Well, this time we did experience it island style with Hop on Hop off Penang. We found it a bit funny that it is also called Ho Ho! Instant thoughts of that delicious Hostess product or even Santa!
What’s the best option for seeing as much of London with kids, while not breaking the bank, and being convenient? The short answer is the Hop on Hop off bus in London. We received hop-on/hop-off bus tickets for 48 hours, a Thames River cruise and they even have free walking tours available.
Picture this…You’ve traveled to the city of Porto Portugal. Maybe you’ve done a lot of research, and you know exactly where you want to go, what you want to see, and how you’re going to get there. Or, perhaps there is so much to choose from that you get overwhelmed. The psychology of dealing with too many choices is well documented, but here is a tip to help you digest it all when visiting Porto Portugal. Try the Porto hop on hop off bus, it is perfect when it is raining too!
We’ve actually done a few more, but they all aren’t documented.
What about you? Do you like the HO HO bus tours too? Where have you done them?
