I get to see many places conveniently. I have the freedom to spend as much time as I want in the places I love, and skip those I dont want to see.

We firstly used our ticket to get over to Devonport, and we ended up staying there for most of the day as it was so interesting and pretty.
We did get a chance to take the whole Red Route tour when we got back, which was very good, but sadly we were too late to take advantage of the 'Hop On Hop Off' element to visit other attractions.
Oh well, maybe next time :

Great way to see a city, especially for the first time visitor. Wish there had been more narrative and less music. Enjoyed several stops along the way.

Great overview of the city.There is pre-recorded information about each stop. Due to our own time constraints, we only got off the bus at Mt. Eden which is an old volcano crater. I'd recommend it to get a higher elevation view of Auckland. Only complaint would be that for some reason the blue buses used a really offensive deodorizer that will bother anyone with allergies. The red buses didn't use this deodorizer.

Too crowded!! Inside Bux is says you can not stand and ride, but quite often there is no where to sit. Confusing on how to receive tickets and map. On-line map is terrible!!
