  • Rating: 5 “It`s a must if you want to make the most of sightseeing”

    Reviewed by Susanne – St. Agnes, Australia on March 11, 2015 It was great fun.

  • Rating: 2 “Not worth it”

    Reviewed by Nicolas – Winterthur, Switzerland on November 26, 2014 We had a 48 hour ticket to explore the city. The buses were loud, infrequent, and often all the upstairs seats were occupied. Considering the price we paid, we could have just as well taken a taxi between the few spots we wished to visit and done the rest on foot (walk through the Botanical Gardens for instance). I recommend doing a bike tour instead: it is cheaper, with a personal guide, and lots more fun.

  • Rating: 4 “Great commentary and great locations stopped at.”

    Reviewed by Laura – perth, Australia on May 19, 2013 Great service, stopped at great locations, good buy

  • Rating: 4 “The best way to see and get around sydney!”

    Reviewed by David – Sydney, Australia on May 19, 2013 The bus was a great way to get awesome information about sydney. You could get off at many different stops along the way. I would suggest this tour to anyone!

  • Rating: 4 “A very good opportunity to get an overview of central Sydney”

    Reviewed by Philipp – Wetzikon, Switzerland on December 28, 2012 When I started the hop-on hop-off tour I was surprised to learn that the tickets include two tours each lasting about 90 minutes. However, due to time constraints I was only able to take central tour. Generally it was a very good experience to get an overivew of central Sydney and the main attractions there. The guide was talkative and a good narrator and also very well understandable. The negative point was the bus. It was very old loud and obviously also not waterproof when it started raining.
