Covered most of the stops of the city tour. The underground, museum and sky tower will beg you to return.

if you are not driving this is recommended as the bus stops at all the major tourist places. when we went on the tour, it was pouring and did for the rest of the day...good way to spend a day. We were dropped off right outside the attractions and picked up later from the same place. We went to the Sea Life place, as well as The Sky Tower. The commentary was excellent and the driver was friendly as well.

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.

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.
