I have mixed feelings on this one. I agree with those posters who said it was very high price and relatively short operating hours. On the other hand I thought the taped... read more

I have mixed feelings on this one. I agree with those posters who said it was very high price and relatively short operating hours. On the other hand I thought the taped commentary was pretty good and I I could definitely understand it ( but then I am English speaking). At the Art Museum, which I highly recommend, one of...

Easy to use and navigate, this was a good way to visit many different spots in Auckland. Instead of paying for separate taxi fares to get the museum, the rose garden, the zoo and the aquarium, use the hop on, hop off. Best to get a two day pass so you have plenty of time to see each place, rather... More

Mediocre experience. This felt more like an urban transit service between sites than it did a tourist bus. The stops were very fast (aside from the museum), and the recorded narrative playing was basic. For the cost, I think using the public transit would be better.

We always do this 1st thing in any new city we go to. This gives us a good idea of the lay out and helps plan our visit. This tour was OK and would have been better with a live tour guide [vs. taped]. Each of the 2 tours takes about 90 minutes.

We had a full day in Auckland after arriving the previous evening from the UK and this was the ideal way to chill out and see a few sights of the area. Very good value for money and we got to do both routes but missed a few stops out. It would've been better to have had the 2 day... More

We were in Auckland for a total of 2 days out of our total holiday so this was a great way to see the major spots without having to do our own driving. We loved having the Hop On Hop Off to be able to see various parts of Auckland. Since the busses only run from 9am-4:30(ish)pm, I highly suggest... More

I'm so glad that I did this, although it was a bit of a rush but we enjoyed it all the same. We got on at the Sky Tower as this was just down the road from our hotel, & we got off at Civic Theatre Corner where there's a nice bar that you can sit outside & watch the... More

The tour itself was enjoyable and the auto narration interesting and informative with good opportunities to explore sites along the way. The second coach we caught at the Museum was also as above but the driver felt compelled to add to the narration which was pretty awful and I can only assume the non English speaking passengers couldn't hear the...
