Covered most of the stops of the city tour. The underground, museum and sky tower will beg you to return.
These were definately the 'must do' attractions in Auckalnd! The zoo tour was quick, and we luckily didn't have any slow coaches. The harbour cruise was really good and well run. The Sky Tower was good, but entry slow and the iPhone ticket was a new one for the person on the gate. We had to wait ages instead of being taken straight in. Obviously the view is fantastic. Watching people drop to the ground on the Sky Tower Drop was hilarious! Strongly recommended.
In winter this bus goes only every 60 minutes and makes 9 stops, most of them destinations such as the Sky Tower or aquarium.. A very small portion of this trip could be described as scenic. At NZ$35 per person it's not worth the money: pick a destination and take a metro bus: it's cheaper and faster. Commentary is taped and driver seemed to know little history.
The confirmation details don't give you enough information as to WHERE to pick up the Hop-on Hop-off tour. I found myself wandering around the Sky Tower unsure of where to go. The answer is out on Victoria Street. Look for the sign that says "Explorer Bus." The other drawback is that the buses only come by every half hour and on the satellite loop, it's only once every hour. So, be sure to pick up a schedule of when they're supposed to be at each major stop or you may "just miss" a bus and have to wait a long time. Overall though, the Explorer Bus was an easy way to see most of Auckland's major attractions. I would recommend only a one-day pass, though. If you want to spend a lot of time at the Auckland Museum, there are cheaper ways to get there.
