‘We used the bus for our Melbourne trip. We did the city and St Kilda tours. The staff were very helpful, especially Jessica. Each tour was approximately two hours long. It was a great way to see the city in a short period of time. The commentary was very informative and went into great detail. It was really easy to hop off at locations you wanted to visit and hop back on and head off to the next stop. I would definitely recommend it.’

    The city traffic is too congested and the bus frequency is too far apart. We were on time for one scheduled pick-up which didn't happen so we walked instead. Later, after finally catching one bus and getting off, we waited for a return pick-up that never arrived.

  • Kathy

    We enjoyed using the hop on hop off bus for the day and really loved the river cruise. Highly recommend this.

  • Richard

    A great day. The bus is easy to use and enabled us to see many of the highlights of the city.

    We use hop on hop off tours to quickly get to know a city new to us and then can decide which bits we want to explore later. We did the Melbourne City Tour first which lasted about 2 hours and followed that with the St. Kilda tour. The recorded English commentary was loud and clear and perhaps a little over enthusiastic at times. The only down side was that these old buses did emit quite a few smelly diesel fumes when stopped.

  • Fathimah

    The drivers were very friendly and helpful, the timing of the bus is almost as close to punctual (due to unavoidable reasons). Me and my family had a great time discovering Melbourne city on the first day of our holiday, great way as intro.

  • John

    We took 30 people from our club on the bus yesterday and they thoroughly enjoyed the trip. So much so, that they want to do the St Kilda tour next year. So we will see you again!

    Great tour, covers most of the important spots in the city. The commentary is also good. It is a must to do if you are new to Australia/Melbourne.
