We heard about 'Hoppa On Hoppa Off' on the website. You walk out of the ship and out of the terminal area and within a couple of blocks, 'Hoppa On, Hoppa Off' is right there. At $15.00 a person, it was well worth it. The...More

Aloha Sandu517, our service is similar to all Hop on bus services and not an escorted tour. It is designed for passengers to explore the stops rather then staying on one bus for the whole route. This causes limited seats when our bus reaches a...More

We had a lovely time on this tour. Some of the buses are old but they did the job. Rainbow falls was great. I snorkeled at Richardson beach. The waits were a little long sometimes but we survived. I highly recommend this tour to everyone.

We were on a cruise ship, so you have to walk about a block to get to their office, no problem. The tour itinerary actually covers a lot & you are free to get on or off when you want, buses run pretty frequently.
