I boarded the Perth Explorer at Elizabeth Quay and was welcomed by a most friendly driver. The family ahead of me had a small child who was given a koala you. Sadly I was deemed too old! However I was able to buy a 'concession' ticket as an over 60's tourist. The commentary was

Nice clean buses with informative commentary and you do cover a lot of Perth so it is a good way to get a feel for what you might want to return to. We enjoyed the tour and I know it is difficult in running a business but a bit more frequency (ie more buses) would be a step

Thanks for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed your tour with us. We would love to have more buses on the route but alas Perth is still well short of tourist numbers in comparison to most large cities around the world and we would simply go out of business. Please tell all your friends and family about how great Perth is and we will gladly buy more buses!

The tourist sites are very interesting but the bus does not stop regularly enough to make it worthwhile. We have taken the HOHO bus all over the world but found this one disappointing.

Thank you for the taking the time to post a review. Our bus has 13 stops around the city and as far as we can see stops close to all the major tourist sites, Perth landmarks and shopping centres. I really can't think of anywhere else we need to stop. We have 4 stops in Kings Park alone! Stopping and starting every couple of minutes stops the flow of the tour and would upset more people I believe than please them.

Thanks for your review, we are glad to have a good tour with us. We agree, the best views are from the top deck, that's the very reason we chose these vehicles to tour around the city. However downstairs is air conditioned for those of you who like a short break from the heat. Upstairs gets much cooler once the bus starts moving and its a great place to sit with the breeze in your hair. We provide free sunscreen on all the buses.
