Auckland, New Zealand
The shuttle was waiting right outside the baggage claim area. We boarded soon after arriving at the shuttle, and other passengers boarded around the same time. While on our way to the hotel, our driver told us about Auckland and made suggestions on places to visit. It was a pleasant ride from the airport to the hotel and reasonably priced. We highly recommend it.
It took a long time to get from the airport to our hotel because we had to wait quite a while for everyone to get to the meeting place at the airport. Then we had to walk quite a distance to get to the shuttle van. Finally, we were the second to the last couple to be dropped off at our hotel. So although our plane landed at 9:00 a.m., we didn't arrive at our hotel until 12:00 noon. This wasted precious time that we wanted to spend visiting Sydney. I would not use this service again.
The Hop-on Hop-off bus tour is a great way to get an overview of Sydney. The recording on the bus explains the sites as you pass them. There was only one bus where the recording was not working properly. Also, the recording and the bus driver warned the passengers to watch out for low hanging branches if you were on the top deck of the bus. Since we rode the bus the first day we were in Sydney, and we were tired from our long flight, we just rode the bus all around and didn't get off. This enabled us to know where we wanted to go the next day to spend more time. We bought a 48 hour pass before we left home, and it will was well worth the price.
