Well run buses of this type are always a great way to get an introduction to a city, especially when one has limited time. This was one of the better run Hop-ons. Unfortunately a situation beyond their control (major roadwork) made getting to the first stop challenging and a longer walk than we expected, but all of our interactions with the Explorer employees were positive. The bus was clean, ran on time, and was comfortable, so we were very pleased with our experience.

We only had time for a 1-day pass (I would recommend getting a 2-day ticket but enjoyed the knowledgeable commentary and very friendly, helpful staff and drivers.

If you're only in a city for one day these sort of buses are a great way to see the highlights and this didn't disappoint. Covers the highlights and if you start early enough plenty of time to hop off and do the sights.

This is one of the best hop - on hop - off buses that I have ever used. For an small fee I was able to add Waiheke Island which included the ferry return admission as well as the Waiheke Explorer hop - o hop - off buss as well. It was an incredable value. It made for three days because you could use the add on following your 48 hour pass. It was lovely to get out of the busy city to enjoy wineries, and/ or walks on this beautiful Island. Highly recommended.

To be fair, we took this bus just as COVID 19 restrictions were going into place. Buses weren't running nearly as often as advertised, which we totally understood. It just would have been helpful if they had updated their website and/or phone information line. The bus went everywhere we wanted to go and we were able to get out and see the city for a reasonable price. Sit on the upper level if you want to hear the automated commentary. The engine noise on the lower level made it extremely hard to hear, even when sitting directly under a speaker.
