We loved being able to learn about the history of Darwin. We had 3 hours spare and this filled in our time beautifully. Next time we will get off and explore each location

Ticketing experience easy. Drivers were very friendly and informative. Arrival and departure times were close to advertised. Narrative on bus just right amount. Not too much, not too little.

Great overview of Darwin. VERY grumpy driver in charge when we got on at stop near Waterfront but he was replaced at stop 1 by a great driver who kept on coming upstairs to tell us about things to do at the next few stops....fantastic.
