I usually choose the hop on hop off bus option whenever I go to a new city and When I haven't done my homework a lot of preplanning. Auckland explorer has many conveniently located stops around the city. The red line driver of the bus I got on was a nice elderly gentleman and gave me good tips. Saw most... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this flexible way to see the must see sights of Auckland. Staff very helpful and friendly, buses were punctual and route was good covering all the recommended sites. Buses running every 30 minutes which was ideal and meant we could jump off view a recommended site and hop back on the next bus with minimal hanging around.

We only had 1 full day in Auckland so decided to do this to try and cram as much in as possible. Excellent service and buses generally ran on time , so was easy to plan around. We did Bastion Point, the Rose Garden, Eden Gardens, Parnell village and the Civic Theatre stop. We never would have seen this much... More

We were met by a gentleman at the bus stop who made sure our tickets were in order and then gave us a run down of the stops so we could choose which to hop off at. He suggested Mt Eden and Parnell place - both of which I would not have picked but were PERFECT for the limited time... More

A good way to get around and see the most in a short time but if you are not able to walk very far then you may want to reconsider another means of teams since some of the stops in the Blue Route will require some walking to the attractions.

We decided to do the hop-on, hop-off tour on April 1st and I guess the joke was on us!! Stranded at Mt. Eden stop for 48 minutes waiting for the next bus was typical of the day we had with this company. The busses start running at 9:30am and finish at 3:30pm!! I've never seen this before in any other... More

We decided on the one hour tour and this seemed to be plenty. There is not really a great deal of special interest to see. The trip gave us a quick tour round but it didn't leave us wanting more.

Great Quick way to get an overview of the city. We wanted to see what there was in Auckland in the one afternoon we had when we arrived, so that we could decide how much time to spend when we returned before heading home. Well timed, never late, we got off on one stop and had enough time to take... More

This is a good way to see the city sights if you are short of time. We only had the time to do the red loop which took about an hour. The timetable was a bit messed up because there was a cruise ship in town but the busses run very frequently so it was not a problem. There is... More
