    We boarded this bus in the CBD and did both loops - A and B. Got a good overview of city generally. Commentary was easy to hear even though we were upstairs. No waits for a bus. In the afternoon we used our pass to visit Devonport which was enjoyable despite heavy rain. This was

    It was so convenient! It visited the best attractions in Auckland. The bus was clean and the drivers were very friendly. I highly recommend the Explorer. The pass to Devonport Ferry was also a plus. We got to visit a quaint little village.

    Kia Ora ican1982, Thank you for choosing to see the best of Auckland with us! The pass to Devonport ferry is indeed a plus, especially if it was a sunny day when you travelled. I believe the quaint little village you visted was Parnell, which has quirky shops, galleries, and a little cafe called The Chocolate Boutique. Thanks for hopping on (and off) on our bus! All the best for your future travels, Maye and the team at Auckland Explorer Bus

    Got us where we wanted to go in Auckland. Has two routes which do a figure eight and covers both. A great way to get an overview of the city. Davenport ferry not worth the time.

    The Explorer Bus with ferry ride to Devonport is a reasonable deal and a good way to see this fascinating city. I would also like to post special appreciation to Jody, who manned the streetside Explorer Bus "desk" outside the Skytower on Victoria. She was a fountain of
