Great way to see the mountains as you can get off where you want to visit then re board when the bus returns. Or if you have limited time just stay on for the circuit which takes an hour.Can see all the sights without having to have a car. Excellent driver too, David, with interesting commentary. Definitely recommend.

The service is good (especially the driver was excellent). But if you are reasonably well on foot, you can do without the bus and the sights run off. The advantage is that you can avoid the big tour groups who gather at certain stations. All in all, a bit too expensive for the offer, especially compared to BigBus in Sydney.

We had a lovely visit to the Blue Mountains.

The Hop on Hop off bus drivers were very informative and helpful. One even took a photo of us as a keepsake of the day. The scenery was spectacular even in the mist. The town of Katoomba had many cafes and interesting shops. We got the train from Sydney and had a lovely scenic ride to the mountains.
