Low Price Guarantee
A Sydney and Bondi Beach bus tour lets you enjoy all the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transportation and onboard audio commentary—while exploring the sights at your own pace. Tickets are valid for 24 or 48 hours, so you can hop on and off at attractions like Sydney Harbour, the Rocks, Royal Botanic Garden, and Hyde Park, or simply enjoy the views from an open-top double-decker bus.
What to Expect
Make your way to any of the 34 stops (see itinerary) to validate your 24- or 48-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker buses. Your tickets offer access to both the Sydney and Bondi Beach bus routes, which connect at Cook and Phillip Park, 100 William Street or Central Station stops.
Each circuit takes around 1.5 hours, and you can jump on and off as many times as you like. Perhaps get off at Sydney Harbour to enjoy magnificent views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, take a stroll around Hyde Park or the Royal Botanic Garden, or explore Chinatown. Or visit Sydney Fish Market, watch the surfers at Bondi Beach, and discover neighborhoods like the Rocks and Paddington.
While onboard, don’t forget to plug in your headphones and listen to the audio commentary, which points out all the main attractions along the route, and offers background history and fun facts to help you learn more about the Harbour City.

I am wonderfully pleased with the friendly staff Serena and the bus journey of sight seeing. Definitely a must to try the Hop on Hop off bus service.

This tour is the typical hop-on/hop-off style found in other big cities. It's a great way to see many different parts of Sydney, at your own pace. Headphones are provided, tops of the bus are uncovered. I find these tours to be more enjoyable if...More

I was very disappointed with this Hop on Hop Off option. If you dare to get off at one of the stops don’t expect the bus to be back to pick you up within a reasonable time. I wondered if they only had two buses...More
