Melbourne Hop-on Hop-off Sightseeing Bus Tour
- Duration options: 1 - 2 days
- Optional audio guide
Buying vouchers on line apparently doesn’t allow you to board the buses straight away. This should be clarified so we can allow time with the bus staff to “redeem” out vouchers for proper tickets. While trying to complete the voucher redemption process with your bus staff, the bus I was trying to board got full and I couldn’t start my tour as I had scheduled. It’s important for your company to remember that your service is but one part of my vacation experience... an important piece but a piece nonetheless. I’m in Melbourne for a specific # of days and there are specific things I wanted enjoy. A service that places delays in my plans or causes me to eliminate parts of my itinerary because of lost time won’t get a favourable rating from me.
For Both tours, Melbourne & ST Kilda Traffic not too busy. Weather changed in afternoon halfway through City circuit had to retire downstairs as front of top deck open/ half windshield and front corners of cover water cascades onto first 3 rows of seats when stopping. Excellent apart from dusty seats up top marking clothes ST Kilda Black route and delayed start to tour commentary which was out of sync with sights on City Red route. Feel sorry for foreign visitors. Bus fleets are different all over the world however MEL could update to better mitigate frequent inclement weather and represent city. Perth Bus configuration with 3/4 enclosed A/C Cabin upstairs are better suited to inclement elements and tourist comfort during tour & delays.
I booked for myself and my parents online and it worked out to be $49 more expensive than actually paying at the pick up point? Would have been good to know this? Other than that great trip, educational and friendly staff. Will recommend.
Really great way to get around the city and see everything and get your barring on the first few days. The company does require you to print the ticket though, just a heads up so you can't use the mobile version!
I really enjoyed it you get a great view of all the buildings The commentary was informative and maybe it needs to be updated and not have to be played all the time
