Drivers are friendly, leaves every hour so lots of chances to leave at a convenient time. Wherever you get off, they will be back to get you an hour later minimum. It helps if you have an idea of how long you might light to stay at what hop off stops. If you are into shopping and cafes, you want a minimum 2 hours in Leura village. I recommend at least 2-3 hours for scenic world to enjoy the walks and the café.

Driver was good for info on the sites as going around although quite a few stops were at accommodation etc rather than the sites themselves. Down side was there was only 1 bus which meant an hour at each stop to wait for the bus to come around. Ok in town but some places you are not going to spend an hour unless you go on a walk and this then soon eats into your day. Ticket to sky world included but you still have to join the normal line to get your wrist band for the three rides so no skip the line benefit I could see. Recommend for the bus they get two buses to cut the waits to half an hour.

Had awful weather when I went, rain mist and fog so can’t really give a true review as unable to see all the beautiful scenery. However, there was still a certain beauty walking through some of the bush walks in the rain forest. Had a really helpful driver on one of the Hop on, Hop Off buses who went out of his way to tell me things and even stopped to show me a LyreBird.
