I took hippo tour pass for one day and used Red, Yellow and Brown line. This covers most of the interesting areas of Singapore. Its Hop on Hop off bus with frequent service. I suggest take hippo tour on day 1. Have a view of city and then on day 2 cover the areas you liked the most.

The buses are very regular so you never have to wait very long There is a headphone system you can link... More

This was a great find. We went on all the different routes and had the chance to see the whole city easily. Warning 1 : the maps aren't that accurate - so finding the bus stops isn't always easy. Warning 2 : the easiest place to change lines is and the central point. Other areas where the bus stop is... More

We took the red route first which was really interesting -saw the Indian, Muslim and Chinese cultures of the city. It's a great way to get an overview of the city to come back and explore if you don't want to hop on/off immediately. Later in the day we took the yellow route which was also good but not as...

Bought two 48 hour tickets on our first visit to Singapore, which cost just short of S$100. They stop at the public transport bus stops, but keep your "hippo" map, since you need to check the bus stop number in order to confirm that the particular stop is used by them - not all are. Other reviewers mentioned the unreliability/lateness,... More

These buses are great if you want to get on one and ride all day, but like most people we wanted to get off. Well good luck finding the stops (they are not marked at the actual stops so unless you already have the hippo map you'll never know where they are!) and hope you're not in a rush as... More

I will try to make this a balanced review rather than a rant, though I have not had a good experience with this company. My simple recommendation to others is that the SMRT and your legs represent a cheaper, faster and more flexible way of exploring the city. I would say that the tour is good value if you ride...

After getting advice from our hotel we took a taxi to one of the stops. I rang the Hippo info line and they confirmed the stop number as there is no clear signage. We waved the driver down and he drove straight past. We then decided to walk to the next stop so we didn't have to sit for 25... More
