Taking the Explorer bus is a great way to see the sights of Darwin. You can get off at any stop and explore a little more of that particular area. We enjoyed the commentary and being able to sit on the deck and experience the sights from a higher level. The ticket lasts for 24 or 48 hours and is... More

We caught this on our first day in Darwin, and it gave us a really good snapshot of Darwin. The Art and also the Military Museums are top class, as are the Tunnels near the Waterfront. Being able to hop on and off, is great, make sure you are careful with your time because the extra loop at the end... More

The explorer was an unexpected joy of my tour of Darwin, as a new resident of the city I wanted to see as much of it as possible and I wasn't disappointed. A great afternoon spent enjoying the sights and at great value, very informative guide and a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend it on your trip to... More

With an unexpected couple of day in Darwin before flying offshore I decided to go for the " Hop on hop off experiance "and to do it on a open top double decker bus was just a little bit extra special. After checking out the website I was ready to dip my toe into the NT Aussie Darwin history. The... More

Brilliant!!! A MUST do when in Darwin. A "Hop on - Hop off" bus tour, double decker bus , that stops at 10 most popular attractions/sights in and around Darwin. Operated by 4 awesome guys, you can be assured of a terrific time. Tickets are either 24hr or 48hr ones, so if you miss something, you can always jump aboard... More

I really enjoyed this tour., I thought it would be very uncomfortable on an non airconditioned bus. I was happy to see the upper deck was covered and cool and breezy. The recorded information was both interesting and entertaining. The location of the tourist stops were good, but the drivers were exceptional! Friendly, and very helpful. I was very impressed...

The commentary was good - pretty comprehensive and the route gave a good look at quite a bit of Darwin. It is a good view from the top of the bus. We have used the hop on, hop off bus in many cities and usually it is a great way to see a new place. Unfortunately, this one left us... More
