This tour is the best way to see many interesting places around Darwin. Get off and see a sight then after about an hour the bus comes by on another round trip to pick you up for another destination stop. As it says, Hop on, Hop off. Very interesting and informative. Well worth the tour.

Hop on-off bus with commentary in Darwin. Things are a bit far apart and it was hot there in Sept. So the bus was a good way to get around and learn a bit about the town. We picked it up just outside the cruise ship terminal, very convenient.

Firstly, the bus met my cruise ship at the pier. The prepaid ticket allowed me to get on first bus which was a big plus. The advice given was to get off as each attraction I wanted to see as we came to it. Then catch the next bus to the next attraction, with buses running every 30 mins. Very... More

The Darwin explorer double decker bus is a great way to get a snap shot of Darwin city and town. You can purchase 24 and 48 hour passes. Sit up the top of the bus as it's a better view and better air flow.

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

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!
