  • Air-conditioned buses with Wi-Fi and Wheelchair access!
  • Easy to use system map of the Melbourne!
  • Audio narration on the bus!

For a great way to see Melbourne's best sights, here is the iconic double-decker bus that allows you to hop on, or hop off wherever you want to explore up close and personally. Customize your day and see the sights and highlights you want to see!

The views from the top deck are phenomenal, so keep those cameras ready. You'll receive a map with all the stops and what you'll find at each, along with a headset that allows you to hear (in English) a narration about the sights you are seeing. Please see the map link below. You can hop on the bus at any of the stops. You may book this up to 3 months prior to your excursion date.

There are 2 different routes that will take you in and around Melbourne - the City Route and the St. Kilda Route. Melbourne is a fascinating city that was founded in 1835, 47 years after the European settlement of Australia. It is also the capital and the most populous city in the state of Victoria with so many wonderful sights to see that it's hard to choose. You'll discover there are stops at such great locations as China Town at stop 12 on the City Route where you can take in the colors, atmosphere, and aromas. At stop 13 on the City Route, is Cathedral Place. This large Catholic Church was built in the 19th century. Or if you want to hit the beaches, then take the St. Kilda Route and hop off at stop 8 to enjoy South Melbourne beach.

Be sure to visit the Eureka tower, which has the highest public vantage point. Or maybe try your luck in the Crown Casino at stop 9 on the St. Kilda Route. Note that entrance fees to the attractions are not included in the excursion price.

The City Route begins at 09:30 AM and the last bus is at 05:30 PM. If you want to just stay on the bus and see the sights, the loop will take approximately 2 hours. The buses run approximately every 40 minutes. The St. Kilda Route begins at 09:45 AM and the last bus is at 04:45 PM. The entire loop takes approximately 90 minutes. The buses run every 60 minutes in the summertime and every 2 hours in the winter.

Finally, you can combine your stops with exciting attractions. Just check out what's happening during your visit online and then you can plan ahead. Whatever you choose to do, you're in for a treat as you explore the city of Melbourne on your own terms.

We got to see the highlights of the city in a few hours, we could decide where to hop off the bus. Most of the drivers were friendly and the people were very nice. This tour made me want to go back to Melbourne. My friend and I loved it!

We really wanted to see some highlights in this port but other excursions are limited to only a few. Our ship spent a whole day here, so we decided to do this excursion, we got the see many beautiful places just with the help of the map and the driver. By the way, the driver was very friendly.

We were looking for affordable excursions in the ports we visited while cruising and found this one. The buses were great and very comfortable, the staff is friendly, we highly recommend this tour to everybody! We are glad we did it and would certainly look at doing a similar one in another port.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour you get a great view of all the buildings and highlights. The commentary was very informative. The map was easy to use, and we could take advantage of the time our ship was docked.

This was our first time in Melbourne, so we decided to do this hop-on hop-off excursion to get to know the city. The views and architecture were amazing and we got off the bus at a few stops to see some of the locations we wanted to explore, have lunch and buy souvenirs. This was so much cheaper than taking a taxi or Uber around the city. It was super convenient and safe as well. We love that we could manage our time as we wanted and enjoyed doing this tour.
