How does the Hop On – Hop Off service work?
As the name implies, you can hop on and off the buses at any stop whenever you want. Naturally, this is only possible according to the timetable. The Hop On – Hop Off service is an excellent choice for most visitors to Prague who do not want to be bound by a timetable or are not interested in a guided tour of the city. The Hop On – Hop Off service offers our clients the option of deciding for themselves what monuments and sights they want to visit and how much time they want to spend there. However, you will certainly not miss out on any interesting information from the history of Prague. Once on board our buses, you can choose a commentary in one of 14 international languages, while your children can listen to a program which has been tailor-made for them. Each ticket comes with a set of single-use, hygienic headphones.
How many times can I get on/off the bus?
The number of times is unlimited – it is entirely up to you. You can purchase a ticket which is valid for 24 or 48 hours.
Where can I purchase the tickets for the Hop On – Hop Off bus?
You can purchase all of the ticket types online from our website, directly on board the buses or at our meeting point at the Main Railway Station. Tickets can also be purchased at most Prague hotels and from all of our partners.
When does my ticket become valid?
The ticket becomes valid as of the moment when you first board a bus and mark it. A purchased, but unmarked ticket does not bind you to use the Hop On – Hop Off service on a specific date. You can therefore purchase the ticket online from the comfort of your home. It is then entirely up to you when you come to Prague and use the service.
Is the Hop On – Hop Off service suitable for families with children?
Our Hop On – Hop Off service is suitable for all families with children. We have prepared a special program for your children, thanks to which they will not only learn something about Prague, but will also have a lot of fun. The program is designed for children aged from 6 to 12.
Can children outside the age group of 6 to 12 listen to the children’s audio channel?
Even though our special program has mainly been designed for children aged 6 to 12 let, it can also be used by older or younger children. This all depends on the individual interests and abilities of the listener.
Is the Hop On – Hop Off service also suitable for visitors with physical handicaps, for example for people in wheelchairs?
Our Hop On – Hop Off buses provide wheelchair access and have been adapted for people with physical handicaps and in wheelchairs. Wheelchair entry is simplified by the wide, low–level doors with an entry platform. Inside, all of our double-decker buses are equipped with areas designed for transporting people in wheelchairs. We are the Hop On – Hop Off service for everybody!
Does the Hop On – Hop Off service include anything else?
