We all loved our experience on the Darwin Explorer after visiting as part of our cruise. Highly recommended, the guide was so friendly and helpful. We didn't book through the cruise just hop off and walk to their stop and you can book and pay on the spot for a better price.

I organised a Pub Crawl for my sisters Hens Party earlier this month in Darwin and I just wanted to share how fantastic this company is! They are truly professional and every detail was planned out already which made this a Matron of Honours dream!! We had a driver and an MC for the evening who ensured things ran smoothly... More

I really enjoyed this bus! Great way to get to the museums and other great places with some really interesting information along the way. Had really great bus drivers who were really helpful with times of drop off and pick up.

We bought a 24 hour ticket each at 1pm and used the bus to get to the furthest point away, the Military Museum. The bus is a great way to see the highlight locations around town. We had a very leisurely visit at this wonderful museum and got the last bus back into town. This happened to be a Thursday... More

What a fantastic way to see the sights of Darwin. The commentary was very informative and the driver was friendly and helpful. It is great to be able to hop on and off and use the same ticket for 24 hours. A must do!

We love doing hop-on hop off bus tours, it gives you an idea of where everything is and what is worth stopping and having a look at. The Explorer didn't disappoint. The whole tour only took an hour, so you could go all the way around and then think about where you'd like to get off on the next tour... More

This is a quick way to see the highlights of Darwin in a day. It may be superficial but if your time is limited you can certainly cover the basics, as well as pick out a few attractions to come and see another day. The commentary is informative and our driver was able to fill in a couple of gaps... More

A good way to get a 'feel' for the layout of Darwin, as well as pick up some key information. Commentary is enthusiastic and on a hot day it is lovely riding up top. Travels to main tourist spots and is quite scenic at times. A tad expensive but what is not expensive in Darwin? Would recommend.
