Overview
A City Sightseeing Melbourne bus tour offers the benefits of a guided tour—including hassle-free transportation and onboard commentary—but lets you explore at your own pace. Tickets are valid for 24 or 48 hours, so you can hop on and off at attractions like the Eureka Skydeck 88, Queen Victoria Market, and St. Kilda beach. Or simply stay on board and admire the views from the open-top double-decker bus.
What to Expect

Make your way to any of the 27 stops (see itinerary) to validate your 24- or 48-hour ticket, then hop aboard one of the open-top double-decker City Sightseeing buses. Your ticket includes access to two different bus routes, which both start and end at Federation Square.

The City Route is a 2-hour circuit stopping at sights including the Melbourne Star, Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne Zoo, and Eureka Skydeck 88. The St. Kilda Route takes around 90 minutes and covers the sights of South Melbourne including Luna Park, South Melbourne Beach, and St. Kilda Marina.

While on board, 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 Melbourne.

What a disappointment

The chaotic way in which buses were loaded and unloaded should have tipped me off from the start that this was a bad idea - unfortunately, we'd preordered our tickets on line. Worst was that although we were one of the first in line, we...More

Melbourne Hop on

We did not enjoy this mode of transportation. Bus schedule is very slow with busses coming to the stops only every 40 minutes, So if you miss one stop it will be another 40+ minutes for the next. Better to take public transitMore

Not a Bad Way Around

Found it a great way to get around the city and locate everything we wanted to see. I think I was lucky enough to get a day where it wasn’t too busy so the buses were running pretty well on time. Would benefit from some...More

Disappointed 24/10/18

Commentary poor and out of date, almost childlike in places. One speaker only and not clear. Have done many of these tours in other places and standard much higher. Swapped buses to do 2nd route and was given conflicting information. Unfortunately has put us off...More

I thought the trip was great. My only advice was to buy the 48hr ticket so you can take your time and see st kildas as well
