We were disappointed that the bus was only running every two hours and we weren’t informed. Otherwise the bus driver was excellent and assisted us with our travels.

I am sorry you were not aware of the schedule changes. It is advertised all over the Perth Explorer website. These changes are only temporary whilst we cope with border closures and lack of tourists in town. I'm am glad you enjoyed your tour and the driver was helpful.

We saw the bus and decided to get. Was never told if you got off you would not be able to catch another for 2 hours. The driver told us the cost was $70, but charged $80 x2 adults. Feeling so ripped off and actually had to walk back.

I am sorry you were not happy with our service. You were charged correctly, the cheaper price is our Perth Explorer online special only and you wrote direct to us and said that where you had seen it advertised at that price. Having less buses out on the route during this very uncertain time is also advertised thoroughly on our web site.

As a local I decided to to take my granddaughter for a ride on a double decker bus and tour our own city. We learnt some new things about Perth that we didn’t know and really enjoyed our day. I’ve been on these tours in many cities around the world and I was proud of how good this one is. I have only one suggestion and that is that I think it would be great if the bus stopped and the WACA and Queens park stop and tickets to the WACA museum be available as they are for the stadium tours.

Thankyou for your review, I am glad you enjoyed our tour and even as a local we told you some things about Perth that you didn't know. We too would love a stop close to the WACA but unfortunately we have never been able to get one around there due to the lay out of the roads and the lack of anywhere to stop.

While holidaying in Perth CBD from Cairns between 25/11/20 - 06/12/20 & 12 years since my last visit I decided to enjoy Perth Explorer Hop On & Hop Off. Unfortunately I'm informed this service was only operating on W/ends due to Covid-19 & less tourists. However I boarded the bus at 09:40am from Murray St on Saturday morning 28/11/20. Also a special offer a the moment with 50% off & paid AUD $25.00 for a 48 hr pass. The bus was very quiet with very few boarding & the ride was very pleasurable. I sat mostly on the top deck & enjoyed the views during the drive, if you prefer just to sit on the bus the entire trip takes approxamatly 2 hrs. The Hop On & Hop Off is a great way to explore many interesting places during the ride & suitable for all ages. Credit/Card facilities on board with ear piece & interesting commentary. I boarded the bus again the follwing w/end on Saturday 05/12/20 & paid AUD $20.00 for just 24 hrs. Highly recommended.
