5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

I think the Hop-on Hop-Off trips are highly under-rated. This trip allowed MANY great stop choices - too many to use in one day. The drivers were always on time, helpful and some were even story-tellers. The coach was clean and comfortable with a great view on the top layer. The information provided in the extensive brochure was accurate and easily readable with a great layout. I highly recommend this as an option for next travels.

The overall experience was fantastic. The bus drivers are very knowledgeable and friendly. Not only they provided insightful descriptions of the attractions as we traveled along, but also they gave us many tips on saving time and effort. The brochure is very helpful as well. It has the most useful information including bus schedule, detailed description of the attractions, and must see locations by highlighting the corresponding bus stop. They also provided additional materials in different languages to help those tourists who do not speak English to navigate. The only recommendation I have is to hopefully extend the operating hour a little to 5:45 pm, for example.

Good way to get to all the sites in the Blue Mountain area, especially for first timers as we were. The drivers were very friendly and knowledgeable, making good recommendations. They were also impressive with their multi-language greetings. Price is also good for what you can get out of it.
