Most majors cities have a hop on and hop off bus tour. This experience in Auckland was excellent. Well organised, informative, and the coaches were very clean. There are two routes being the red and the blue. We selected both for a day pass of...More

Easy pick up and hop off. Brochure says pick ups were 30 mins apart. But driver said hour.At some spots 30 mins would have been much better. Good way to see the sights of the city.

This is a good choice for visitors having a short visit to Auckland. The Hop on Hop off bus stops at many of the most interesting attractions around Auckland. Particularly liked the wharf area. Well worth the cost.

Good value. We were able to get around the city and stop at places easily and hop back on. We had a little trouble finding where it to start with, but once we did it was great.

Not sure I would do this again. It does take you to the highlights, but I think once all the metro rails are completed, you can do it with that. We went to the Aquarium, the Zoo and Mt. Eden. There are 2 lines (blue...More

Could depend on whether you want to visit any of the attractions e.g. park at the zoo if you want to visit it first or last. Best bet would be to park in the Domain near the museum as you have easy access to both bus routes... More
