When we visit a new city we always look for a hop on hop off bus to give a tatse of where we want to spend time. It was a great way to spend our first afternoon even though we didnt have time to "hop off!"The ticket can be reused over 3 days which is a great idea. Unfortunately we were leaving for launceston the next day before returning later in the week.
We sat up on teh top deck where unfortunately the commnetray was inaudible. In other cities we have had head sets ..perhaps thats the way to go?

Purchased a ticket for the hop on hop off bus from the Information centre on the waterfront so we could get our bearings on day 1. the one ticket gives you use for 3 days...great value indeed.
used it the following days to visit places we decided to explore some more. Perfect way to get around, especially as it went right past our accommodation on the waterfront :)

Great day relaxing and fun day out. The city tour is an excellent way to get your bearings and learn about the history of the city. The Cascade Brewery is a great destination. Highly recommend.

We picked up a voucher in the kids tasmania book that allowed us to buy one, get one free, so very good value. Spent an hour and a half seeing the sights of Hobart. The driver was excellent and had a really good local knowledge. The ticket is then valid for three days, so you can hop on hop off as you like.

My husband and I purchased a prepaid ticket for this when we came across on the ferry. We really enjoyed the bus trip, was lovely weather, and sitting up top found it an enjoyable and relaxing way to see around Hobart CBD. We found it so relaxing we thought about going around again but had left our time a bit late and missed the last trip. We quite enjoyed the drivers commentary too.
