    Worthwhile
    Good way to see the city in a short time. I just did the loop which takes 90 minutes. The bus driver was very good. Arrive early for the first couple of departures of the day.

    Well worth 90 minutes of your time
    I realised that the cruise ship would dock very close to the city so I decided to just see Hobart by way of the Hop On Hop Off Bus. There was a ticket booth at the end of the pier as we disembarked and I got a ticket for the second bus of the day at 9.30am. The weather was forecast to be very warm later so I was happy to go earlier. Definitely get to the departure point well in advance of the scheduled departure time as it was very busy 25 minutes before the bus was scheduled to depart (maybe different for later departures). The driver was very good and helpful as people got off. The commentary was ok and it was a good way to see a bit of the City in an hour and a half. Worth doing.

    Pretty Average.
    The trip was ok to get an overview of Hobart.View was good from the upper deck but it took way too long to get around.There were many long stops very close together with people getting on ... so it lacked momentum and was rather boring at times. Commentary was pretty average.

    Excellent drivers & commentary
    I was lucky to have a beautiful day to be able to see all around Mt Wellington. Ed stopped along the way to see more views & was an excellent driver. The driver of the Hop On Hop Off bus even dropped us off at the cruise terminal so we would have plenty of time to reboard the ship.

    Look around Hobart
    We bought a combo ticket, for Mt Wellington first. Fabulous views along the way as well as at the top. Changed bus to the double decker, then did a Hobart city tour. It timed in well to get off at the Casino for lunch. Then an hour later got back on to finish the loop.

    Excellent Value. Great way to get an overview of Hobart!
    We decided to forego a cruise line excursion in favor of doing Hobart on our own. We chose the HoHo bus and we're very satisfied. This is a great value way to see the city whilst saving some money! Using the savings to treat yourself to lunch at the beautiful botanical garden!!

    Mount Wellington and Cascade Brewery
    A group of about 10 of us went on a trip to Mount Wellington (we came off the Resilient Lady Cruise ship for a day in Hobart). The bus was on time and our driver Paul (I think) was friendly and full of information along the way. We spent around 30mins at the lookout then hopped off the bus at the Cascade Brewery for a few drinks and a light snack. Hopped on another bus that took us back to near the wharf where our ship was. Everyone had a pretty enjoyable time. Highly recommended.

    A good way to see the city
    We did the 48 hour ride the first day was raining and cold but a great way to see Hobart...Jon was a great tour guide filling in details throughout the commentary..day 2 a different driver..very pleasant but the commentary stopped working and not sure it his mike did not work but no add lib commentary from him...a cruise was in town so very busy and the timetable was all over the place we were walking to catch the bus down Sandy Bay road and it sailed past us 10 mins early...had to catch the metro to connect with it in town. Overall good experience though

    Hobart
    Shore day of cruise ship. Bus was late getting to pick up point and not all could get on as it was full. Whilst we enjoyed the places of interest did not know that there would be an extra cost to visit that place, so consequently we stayed on the bus for the round trip.

    Driver was very friendly and I enjoyed the commentary and scenic tour
    The driver was very friendly and I enjoyed the commentary, although it was difficult to hear at times. I also enjoyed the scenic tour but the driver didn't stop when I wanted to get off even after I pressed the stop button. Not enough time to allow passengers to depart, I made sure to quickly exit the next time I wanted to depart.

    Hobart On Off Bus
    Arrived in Hobart around 11.15, made our way to the hotel to drop off our luggage and decided we would take a look around Hobart city. We found our way to the information centre and were guided to the On off Bus. It was a 90min round trip. We enjoyed the tour and our driver Tony was efficient and in between the recorded Commentary he told us a little more history and even some jokes. Highly recommend doing this to get your bareings.

Great shuttle to Richmond. Knowledgeable driver and pleasant drive to and from Richmond.
We loved the Richmond Bridge (including the rooster that appeared to live there!) and the gaol, very interesting. We were a bit disappointed that several of the shops (e.g. antique shops) in Richmond were closed on the days that the bus tour goes there.

Dear Holly C, thank you so much for leaving us this fantastic 5-star review, we really appreciate you taking the time to write this for us. It is awesome to hear what a great time you had on our bus, and it is lovely to hear what a good time you had with your driver as well. Yes, Richmond is a fascinating and beautiful place to visit, I also really love the bridge and the gaol! I am sorry that some of the shops were closed, unfortunately, the shops are closed some days, and our bus does visit Richmond daily so to avoid disappointment I would definitely google the shops down there and plan your trip accordingly. Thank you so much for travelling with us, we are so glad you had such a great time, and we hope to see you again! Kind regards, Bianca C. Marketing and Communications Coordinator

Excellent way to get an overview of the city and to spot places to explore further on foot. Great value for money (and our driver Tony was a crack-up with his extra commentary)

Hello FionaD. Thank you for writing a review of your recent tour. We are pleased that you enjoyed the Richmond Village Tour. We agree the small quaint village of Richmond has a lot to offer. It is full of History, great locations to sample local Tasmanian food & wine and specialty shops such as the Christmas Shop & the Lavender Shop that you dont see in the Hobart city centre. We hope the rest of your stay in Tasmania was a happy one! Many thanks again for your feedback. Kind regards, Fiona G Tour Manager
