Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Auckland Hop-on Hop-off Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Buses were clean, commentary was informative and buses kept to time. I have never used such a well-organised hop-on-hop-off bus service before - really appreciated knowing exactly when the next bus would arrive.
Our family really enjoyed Auckland! We went to visit the Hobbit Farm. GREAT! A MUST SEE FOR HOBBIT FANS! (There is a lot of walking. It would be hard it you had a pram, wheel chair or were unstable on your feet). The countryside was gorgeous! You really need to look into which tour to take, as there are a few options.
The next day we were on a sailing boat. That was great and worth it. The water was lovely and we really enjoyed that. You can even go sailing on a America's Cup yacht, but that was a little adventurous for me. We stayed mainly in Auckland as my husband and son were at a conference. So I went exploring on my own. I went on the Hop on Hop off bus (I got a 2 day ticket for $60 ONLINE). I went to the zoo. That was worth the trip - a few of the animals were really close (leopard, elephant and the gorgeous giraffes). A lot of monkeys too - wow they were noisy! I also went to the Kelly Tarlton Aquarium (the penguins were cute and the stingrays were massive!). I also went to watch a game of tennis - all the seats were close to the game. I enjoyed the shopping and the lovely food. Overall we had a great time!
Usually on time and will take you all over the city at all the different sites. My family and I enjoyed it and was worth the money spent.
Everything about this is 5 Star... The location, friendly staff, suitable price, places visited and choice.
Going to be booking again in April when i go back there this year.
Timing was spot on; commentary was great describing the different stops and areas of Auckland.
All-in-all, the Hop-On/Hop-Off Bus Tour throughout Auckland managed to hit all the high points of this lovely city. In particular, the several stops made during the journey were well worthwhile in particular the city's Cathedral. And there were no long waits for the next bus to arrive. The "canned" commentary was well scripted and pertinent. Would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting Auckland and would even consider doing it over again if/when visiting again....
Very worthwhile doing and good value for money. Easy to find and would have liked to have done a second day of it so we could have got off at more stops. The down side was that the Maori Cultural show at the Museum was $45 each!! Certainly too expensive!
A great way to get an overview of Auckland. Very impressed with the friendly and courteous drivers. We loved the city . People were really happy to give you directions and were proud of their city. Looking forward to coming back for a longer visit! Bob and Peggy Lang. Canada.
The price was right to see as much as you can see in a short time since we were on a tight schedule being on a cruise. The tour guide was very informative.
fantastic sites to see with the convenience of the inexpensive Hop on Hop off tour bus
