Sites were great

What a brilliant way to see Auckland. The commentary from the drivers is valuable and interesting. Sites are great to see, but keep in mind that it does cost to get into a lot of the attactions along the way. The only problem that we encountered was that if you got off to look at an attraction there was an hour wait for the bus to come along again. Some site I don't think you need an hour to look at, we feel the wait is too long. Also a 2nd bus should also be looked at for when there are traffic problems. One of the days it took the poor driver over an hour to return to base from the Auckland Zoo, as the traffic was terrible. You could hear that others waiting for the bus to come and pick them up were not happy. You have competition with the other company near you, they run every 30mins, we went with this company as they had a better deal.

Great way to sightsee in Auckland

The family really enjoyed the tour. We covered a lot of ground easily and ticked off most of the to-do things in Auckland. With the 2 day tour, we also got to go up the sky tower which was a great bonus. The buses are quite regular so the waiting times are less. But it'd be good to have some additional indicators so that time spent waiting can be used up for more sightseeing. Overall great service though. Would highly recommend it.

Good one day, less good on the second

First day was great, bus provides an easy way to go around. But on the second day the service on the blue line was cut by half (sick driver, no back-up?), and then the only bus left came over 20 minutes late and wanted to make for time by skipping part of the route (the bridge). That didn’t happen in the end because all passengers objected but still.., Positive: I called the number on the leaflet to see if the bus would still come and they were very friendly and could track the bus down (gps) and tell me how long the wait was still to be.

Great driver John!

We really enjoyed the tour. Our busdriver John did really well. With a lot of humor he told everything about the city.
