An Auckland hop-on hop-off bus tour provides all the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transport and on-board audio commentary—with the flexibility of independent travel. Tickets are valid for 24 or 48 hours, and there are two different bus routes, covering top attractions such as Mt Eden, Auckland Zoo, Sky Tower, Princes Wharf, Bastion Point, and Parnell Village.

What to Expect

Make your way to any of the bus stops (see Itinerary) to validate your 24- or 48-hour ticket, and then hop aboard one of the double-decker sightseeing buses. Your tickets offer access to both the Red Circle and Blue Circle bus routes, and buses leave every 15 to 30 minutes depending on the season.

Each circuit takes around one hour, and you can jump on and off as many times as you like. Perhaps visit the Auckland Museum, Auckland Zoo, or SEA LIFE Aquarium; admire the views from Bastion Point Lookout, Sky Tower, or Mt Eden; or take a stroll around Parnell Rose Park Gardens or the Winter Gardens.

While on the bus, plug in your headphones and listen to the on-board audio commentary, which points out the main attractions along the way and offers background history and fun facts to help you learn more about the city.

Good tour

We are seasoned hop on hop off bus travellers. The route and frequencies of the buses were very good and the drivers friendly. Just felt a bit let down by the condition and cleanliness of the buses.

Not worth it, our guide/driver wasn't much motivated to introduce surroundings and places to us.

Hi, Unfortunately, I got the last bus to start my hop on hop off and it does not make sense to me why when there is no following hop on buses on the route for the day, the charges are the same. - Our guide...More

Another Great Way to Learn a City Cheaply

I have done this style of Hop on Hop off bus tour in several places in Asia. This was one of the better ones. (Best was Hong Kong). The two looping routes give you a very nice coverage of the city and you also get...More
