    “The convenience of getting on and off was fine.”

    Reviewed by Bertram – Howell, United States on July 22, 2015 The convenience of getting on and off was fine. But using earphones for the guide was most unsatisfactory. Either train the driver to be the guide, as was the case with the ferry, or use a paid guide. It would be a little more expensive, but infinitely more useful, especially for out of country visitors like us, visiting from the US. It was also unfortunate that the driver would not accept a soft copy payment/ticket advice, forcing us to pay again, after we had paid through your reservation system. We also did not realize that the bus picked up very close to our hotel, and we were making all sorts of arrangements to get to one of two locations directed on the website, with the result that we had to stand at a pick up stop for almost 2 hours to get on the bus. The information could have been much better with respect to possible pickup locations.
    In any case, it was a good way to see the beauty of Sydney.

    “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.
