Traveller Tips


I recommend starting early morning if you plan a few stops as the buses come to each stop hourly.
I'd recommended the 48 hour pass as there is way too much to fit into one day.

It was a brilliant day throughout. It was very informative and the tour of Cascade was also very enlightening and enjoyable..

suziq21, Jan 2023
Went from one end of Hobart to the other, so could have a really good picture of the city. An hour and a half is a good long period. We also went through the CBD.

Wendy55, Jan 2023
Took our granddaughters (10 &7) for a school holiday outing. They were very impressed with the history and just being able to ride on the top of the bus.

A good way to get to know the city
Monika_S, Jan 2023
The ticket is 40AUD for 24 hours through Viator website. During the booking process it changed to 48 hours and 50AUD, which is worth your while if you stay longer. We didn’t need 48 hours, so we felt we overpaid. You can also buy the ticket on the day at Brooke Street Pier, one of the bus stops. We enjoyed the 27km tour through Hobart and the commentary about places. Check places are open, some are closed Mon and Tue. Salamanca Market only on Sat. Cascade brewery by prior booking only. I would highly recommend a stop at the Cascade Female Factory but book a tour to make this visit worth your while. The Tasmanian Art Gallery is also very interesting. Close by the Lark Whiskey and gin tasting pub.

Dear Monika_S, thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this comprehensive review, we really appreciate you taking the time to do so!

Value for Money.
Enid_L, Nov 2022
When ever we go to a new town or country, we always join a bus trip as they are good value and you get a preview of what you may like to see in more detail. We loved seeing all the sites of Hobart., the commentary was very good, our buss driver was very friendly. He gave us some more tips as to where visit, that we would otherwise not have found out about. We would highly recommend this tour.

Bus was late
Chrissy_W, Nov 2022
We found this bus tour to be very informative however due to the bus running late, we missed our tour at the Hobart penitentiary and also received a parking fine for returning late. Not a great experience overall.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Chrissy_W, thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback and write us this review. Firstly it is so great to hear what a good time you had on the tour. But I am sorry that on the day you travelled with us the bus was running late and that this impacted another tour you had booked, that is disappointing to hear. Please give us a call at our booking office so we can discuss your trip further on 6236 9116. Thank you once more for leaving us your feedback. Kind regards, Bianca C. Marketing and Communications Coordinator
What a disappointment
Debbie_O, Nov 2022
We booked the 11am tour but received a text the night before that the time has been changed till 12 pm , the bus was then 30 minutes late overbooked and it was freezing, due to the time change we didn’t get to stop at the attractions we had wanted to because of the time and the overbooking
Loved the bus drivers and...
Janice_C, Nov 2022
Loved the bus drivers and their extensive knowledge of the area and the help getting on and off the bus (middle aged lady here)! One disappointing thing was firstly the walk that we had to do to actually get on the bus and the second was the actual wait to get on. I realise (or heard through the grapevine) that a bus had broken down but the queue was around the corner and down the street. A few strategically placed bus seats may help
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Janice_C, thank you for writing us this review and giving us your feedback, we really appreciate hearing back from our passengers. Firstly it is fantastic to hear what a great time you had while travelling on the bus, and what a positive experience you had with your driver! They all work really hard to ensure every passenger has an enjoyable experience! I am disappointed to hear that there were a few things that marred your time with us. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about the walk from the Cruise Ship Terminal to the Travel Centre which is where stop A is, as our Double Deckers cannot stop there, but thank you for pointing this out though and we will review other solutions. As to your second point, unfortunately, as I am sure you can appreciate, Hobart is a small city with lower visitation than other bigger cities where hop-on hop-off services operate, and sometimes with large cruise ships like on the day you travelled, many people all converge at the same time, and yes that day we did have the very rare occurrence of a bus break down. Feel reassured that we do everything humanly possible in the background on these busier days to accommodate all passengers wanting to travel and aim to provide 100% positive customer experiences at all times. We have extra buses and staff rostered on these days, and we clear queues as fast as we can, and the good news is this does clear promptly. But I am sorry that you were left waiting on this day. Unfortunately, we cannot place bus seats, but it is a good suggestion and I will look into it. Thank you for providing your feedback, and we hope to see you again in the future. Kind regards, Bianca C. Marketing and Communications Coordinator
Definitely worth doing over a whole day, or as a quick highlights of Hobart tour.
Shelley_K, Nov 2022
We didn't have much time in Hobart, so thought we would do this where we could get a quick history of Hobart.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Shelley_K, wow thank you so much for writing us this fantastic 5-star review! We really appreciate you taking the time to write this for us! Yes, Red Decker's Hop-on Hop-off is fantastic whether you have a long time or a short time in Hobart I totally agree! We are so glad you had a great time with us, and we hope we will see you again in the future! Kind regards, Bianca C. Marketing and Communications Coordinator
