The Hop On/Hop Off system enables you to spend the day visiting the places of interest to you, spending as much time as you like at the various attractions, and then rejoining the circuit and travelling to the next place you find of interest. It's a fun and easy way to experience Auckland City. A comprehensive commentary as you travel around provides an interesting overview of the city.
On this excursion the buses travel a scenic route, stopping at all the top Auckland attractions where you can hop off and explore at your own pace. The buses travel the circuit all day; when you wish to move to the next attraction you simply return to the stop where you got off and hop on the next bus.
The attractions are varied and interesting, with something for everyone. You can visit Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World. Travel on the moving walkway through an amazing underwater world, and ride a snow cat through the ice enclosure to view the penguins. Also on the circuit is the stunning Auckland Museum, a must for visitors to Auckland to learn the story of New Zealand's uniquely ancient natural history and Maori culture. Parnell Village is also a very popular area to visit, with beautiful, old period houses that have been transformed into charming boutique-style stores. Sky City contains a casino, and the Sky Tower offers breathtaking views of up to 50 miles in every direction. There are beautiful gardens on the circuit for garden lovers, shopping streets and malls for those who enjoy meandering through the shops, and the Auckland Zoo, which is one of the best in the world. You can visit lookout points such as Bastion Point, with stunning views of the beautiful Hauraki Gulf, and Mt. Eden, an extinct volcano and Auckland's highest point. The day is yours to explore and enjoy this beautiful city.

We felt that this excursion was a great value. It gave the opportunity to see as much or as little of the city as we chose. It was well organized.
Using an on/off service was a good value for the money.
Nice way to see Auckland. Picked the aquarium for first stop and it was great.
The hop on hop off experience was a great treat. We stopped at the various locations we wanted to take the time to see and the drivers were very friendly and knowlegeable.
