Sydney Shore Excursion: Sydney and Bondi Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Sydney and Bondi Hop-on Hop-off Tour

For great views of Sydney and Bondi while you’re in port in Sydney, travel around the city in an open-top double-decker bus. The Sydney and Bondi routes take you around the world's most beautiful harbor, past towering skyscrapers, iconic buildings like the Sydney Opera House, the iron-lace terrace houses of Paddington, Double Bay’s millionaires’ mansions and legendary Bondi Beach. Sydney’s year-round climate of blue skies and sunshine makes it the ideal location for an open-top bus ride while in port.

You can hop on and off as many times as you like aboard both the Sydney and the Bondi open-top double-decker buses. With 34 stops covering Sydney and Bondi's top attractions, each tour takes approximately 90 minutes and includes interesting on-board commentary. The bus departs every 15 to 20 minutes from each stop and tickets are valid for 24 hours from first use. The tours connect at 100 William Street or Central Station stop.

The departure point for the hop-on hop-off bus is located within a 10-minute walk of the Barangaroo and Circular Quay cruise ports so you determine the time you return to your ship. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

This is the best way to introduce a new visitor to Sydney. Very easy to learn where the sights and points of interest are and to get on and off at will. Viator booking rate saved us a few dollars off of the posted fare.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

An excellent experience to find your way around the city. As the lady on the bus suggested we did the first half of the tour, changed at Central and did the Bondi and beaches section then back to Central and changed buses again, they run regularly so never long to wait. We then got at at the fish harbour and had lunch, a great find before catching the bus back to Circular Quay. Very good value for money and a very interesting commentary.

This excursion was everything we wanted it to be. Our wish was that the busses ran a bit later into the evening and perhaps started earlier in the morning !

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2013

Great value. It was a very good way to get an overview of Sydney. We were on a cruise and only stopped in Sydney for one day. It gave us a chance to see many interesting sites in a very short time.

The hop on hop off bus always seems to work for my wife and I as we can see a lot and get a commentary which provides information. We hopped on and off on a number of occasions including Bondi beach. Good value especially as we had a reduction due to age!

3 star rating: Worth doing May 2015

Very good tour if you want to see Syndey in a short amount of time. One problem that we had noted was that the local tour was much cheaper than what we paid Viator because they offer a huge senior discount.
