We brought a ticket for two days. The drivers were very down to earth, helpful, ensured we had the right map and instructions. We enjoyed the commentary of some of Perth's history, seeing and getting around Perth in a relaxing manner.

Looking on the positive side of this open top Double Decker Bus tour, we did enjoy the drive showing us a few attractions; -- through Kings Park --to CROWN Casino --the bird's eye view of the many Parks we drove by The downside is the buses only come around every ONE hour and that certainly is a bit of a...

Thank you for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed your drive with us through Kings Park and over to Crown casino.

The fumes both inside and on top of the bus were very excessive and unbearable when the bus waited at stops as the ignition wasn't switched off, a serious health hazard. After our first drop off the next bus left early and we missed it so had to wait another hour for the next one. A mum and 2 kids... More

I am sorry you were not happy with our tour; however your comments do require me to point out some inconsistencies with your story. Our buses are regularly maintained, the drivers have not had any complaints about the fumes. Upstairs in open air – the front seats are 12 mtrs away from the engine, I find it hard to believe...

My wife and I joined this tour on the weekend and sat up top in the warm sun and open air. It takes about 2 hours to complete the circuit, however you can hop on and off as you please at Kings Park, Bell Tower, Northbridge, Perth and Crown Casino. It was great to relax and see Perth and Kings... More

We did a round trip on the Perth Explorer. A bit chilly on the top deck but excellent views. The commentary was good but with painful jokes, ideal for an 8 year old! You can pay by card on the bus which was useful.

We took the bus to get an overview of Perth and information on the sights. The drivers were pleasant and drove well. We paid by credit card on board, which was a bonus. The tour was OK and interesting, although I'm sure there are more things of interest in Perth than was spoken about on this tour. The only other... More

The trio takes 2-3 hours without hopping off. The company offered also uppgrades to certain attractions. On the second round I hopped off at Kings pari and continued to the Center. In the Center the attractions are in the walking distance

Excellent, informative tour of Perth although we were freezing by the end of it as we chose to sit on the top deck in mid winter! Perth to Fremantle by boat was refreshing and on the return visit we saw dolphins swimming in the wash! So exciting. Tram tour around Fremantle was again informative, but made much more personal by... More
