On time, chatty and helpful driver. Commentary ok but a bit Aussie corny. Comfortable bus. Runs every 35 mins. Seems to cover most areas of interest. Able to get a seat at each stop we boarded. Bus stops could be a more clearly labelled.

Ticketing was easy on my phone and the driver was very helpful with information when we boarded the bus. As we didn't hire a car this trip the hop-on bus enabled us to still sightsee around Darwin and visit key attractions as required.
