Great way to orientate yourself
Sep. 2021
The Darwin HOHO is like all others around the world - it's a great way to orient yourself to the city when you first arrive. The drivers were friendly, the commentary interesting, and the timings well structured to hop off at a couple of the more popular attractions. We did two loops to get a good feel for Darwin.

Worthwhile
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Worth while if on your first trip to Darwin. Did a full loop first before deciding where to get off. Only complaint was length of time to wait between buses, an hour+. Drivers friendly and knowledgable. Commentary clear and relevant

Always worth doing!

We do this at every city we visit, and always find it valuable to help decide what attractions we want to go back and investigate. Darwin’s bus was no exception. Excellent commentary and an easy way to get your bearings…

Great way to get around Darwin
I thought this was great way to get around Darwin’s main tourist areas. As car hire is so expensive this was a cost effective way to get on and off around some of the town’s highlights. The buses ran about every 35 mins. The map provided with a timetable was very useful.

HOP on HOP off Bus
We took the bus on first day of our holidays to get our bearings& the layout of the area. Lots of stops. Bus drivers were polite. Need to show your ticket each time you get in , so have it handy. We sat upstairs & view was great. Commentary was informative & interesting. The map provided was very useful & keep for later when walking the City.
Only one negative.. I did think the price was a little high. But .. to be expected, as most businesses have done it tough over the last 12months.

I enjoyed it
It was a good tour - some of the commentary was a bit corny.. would have liked a few more things included - perhaps out to east arm. Bit more info about the fish the people were catching on Stokes wharf - is it safe to fish?? Enjoyed it still the same thank you

Relaxing way to see the city.
Mar. 2021
I got on in the afternoon for the 90 min circuit and as I seen the attractions before I just enjoyed a tour of the city. Having also been on this bus on a previous trip there were many things I had forgot so worth doing a second time. It is a relaxing way to see the city and the tourist attractions.

A great way to see the city on a typical wet season day in Darwin
Feb. 2021 • Couples
Good interesting commentary and plenty of attractions to see, especially the Military Museum. Very helpful drivers, who went an extra stop to drop us off at the end of the day.
