“Very good for intro tour of the city”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

My wife and I have used hop-on-hop-off bus tours in many major cities, especially when it is our first time in the city. We enjoyed the Auckland tour, good introduction to the city and many opportunities to hop off and explore.

“Great way to see the city”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I did the hop on hop off tour today - both the red and blue ones. The connection between the 2 tours was good with only a couple of minutes wait between buses. The red tour double decker bus was very comfortable but the blue tour single decker bus was a bit squashy. Both drivers were ver pleasant. However, we did think the price of $40 each to be rather expensive.

“Highly efficient and enjoyable!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I loved the concept and was able to see most of what Auckland has to offer without having to worry about the hassle of driving. Great way to see the city in a short amount of time. Will explore other hop on hop off buses in future travels.

“Efficient way to see Auckland”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

This is an easy, convenient and fast way to see Auckland. I did not have much time to spend in Auckland, and this served as a good way to see most of the city. The buses are clean, and the guides were informative and polite. However connection between buses at the library was not efficient on the day I took the tour. We had to wait for a while before the next bus came.

“Great Way to see Auckland”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is a wonderful service if you have limited time and want to see the main sites of Auckland. It stops at 9+ sites and picks up approx. every 30 minutes. Modern double-decker bus, very comfortable. It has a very informative pre-recorded commentary on all the sites to be visited and you can get off/on at any time within the day of purchase or for an extra charge you can purchase a 2 day pass. Soooo many wonderful sites to visit and so little time, that was our dilemma. But, I think this is a very good excuse to visit Auckland again in the future and spend a week here. Absolutely beautiful harbour and a great ferry service to other locations of interest.

Highly recommended. And Auckland, we will be back!
