  • "However, if you plan on spending several hours at a location, it is a bit of a waste as the bus only runs from 8:30am - 7:30pm." See review

It’s a must when you are in Sydney
, Jan 2022
We absolutely loved the experience and the drivers were so helpful. It’s fun seeing the sights and listening to the music and commentary as we toured Sydney. I’d definitely do it again. Well done!
Great experience
, Dec 2021
The drivers and guides were excellent. Friendly and super helpful. They provided a poncho when it rained and recommended things to do based on my expressed interests. Great way to get bearings in a new city
Loved Being Outdoors While Tiding The Bus
, Jan 2021
Loved the fact that I was outdoors while riding on the upstairs section of the bus. Especially important during Covid to have the fresh air in my face.
Not good value with COVID restrictions
, Dec 2020
The staff are fantastic but due to COVID the service is only running from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm so I don't think it is worth booking the Hop on Hop off as a way to enjoy Sydney. The train and ferry system in Sydney is amazing so it is better to simply top up an Opal card and go.

A Must Do Trip Around Sydney!!
, Dec 2020
It was a fantastic trip. The driver was friendly, kind and helpful and went out of his way to ensure I got the return connection from Bondi to the Opera House so I could get back to my hotel.
Sydney hop on hop off
, Sep 2020
I am a local and have always wondered about the commentary. It was fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone.

This experience is one memorable one for me and husband. Regardless of the weather we enjoyed the tour. Listening to the history and seeing it at the time was so beautiful. I highly recommend the Hop-on-Hop-off bus if you want to know Sydney CDB well and the History. i will take my kids and Family back there at anytime. Regards Bex & Fred

Time Out in the City .
, Jul 2020
We travelled by train from Penrith to Sydney to do some sight seeing . Travelling by bus we covered a lot of ground and the commentary informed us about the many sights . My wife Marina and I Highly Recommend Hop on Hop off Bus Tours .

Hop on and idea ever
, Jul 2020
Great time. Even the 24 year old, who lives in Sydney, enjoyed the commentary. We have been twice and there is new information each time....Great for overseas travellers..A snapshot of Sydney for a small cost

Two areas !
, Apr 2020
Great time seeing the sights. The city is in two areas, but we didn’t have time to tour both. Maybe next year ?
