I got on the bus in Bondi Beach where I was staying. The driver strongly recommended the extra upgrade to include 4 sights. I’m not complaining; they were great. BUT that was my only bus trip because it took me the rest of the day to visit the 4 attractions. Expensive spin into the city! Ironically I could have got much the same extras when booking online with a two day pass thrown in. I live and learn but you can learn from my mistake. Just think it through!

Always a good way to get our bearings in a new city, as well as stay awake during that first jet-lagged travel day, this hoho was what we expected. Remember to grab ear pieces on your way into the bus, because no one offered them to us, and I had to wait till everyone was on, go back down, nab some, and go back up.

Great transportation option and informative. We travel a lot and use Hop on, Hop off when ever we are in a city. We are able to ride and learn about the city while stopping to see the things that are of major interest to us. If you are looking for a 5 star tour, hire a tour guide. This option is for people who like to explore on their own.
