Yes –we’ll ask you to select the date you’d like to hop on the bus. If you’re touring with us for more than one day, your ticket must be used across consecutive days, and the date you select at time of booking should be the first day of your tour. Some tours also require you to select a time of travel, to guarantee your seat. If your ticket includes extras, you may also need to book additional dates & times for all elements of your ticket after your purchase is complete. See your booking confirmation email for instructions.
What is the child ticketing policy?
A child ticket is available for children between the ages of 3–15. Children under 3 may travel free of charge. All children must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 16.
Is it possible to hire one of the open-top buses for a private event?
Yes, buses are available for private hires and charters. For more information please or to receive a quote, submit an enquiry using our private hires and charters page.
Where is the information kiosk?
Big Bus Tours Sydney has an information kiosk located at the end of Sealife Aquarium Wharf, on Darling Harbour. Our kiosk is currently open on the weekend only. If you have a query, please feel welcome to contact us via email, phone, or to speak to a customer service representative via our live chat feature.
Is the Classic Ticket valid for 1 day or 24 hours?
The Classic Ticket is valid for 24 hours. It entitles you to use all Big Bus services during operational hours, starting from the time you begin your tour until that same time the following day. So if you board the bus at 12pm for example, your ticket will be valid until 12pm the following day.
The same applies to Premium and Deluxe Tickets, valid for 48 hours.
Are buses wheelchair accessible?
Yes, the lower decks of our buses are wheelchair accessible, with ramps enabling access to all vehicles within the Sydney fleet. The boarding areas in the proximity of our bus stops in Sydney are also wheelchair accessible. There is space for one wheelchair per bus. We regretfully advise that we cannot accommodate mobility scooters, and may not be able to accommodate larger wheelchairs, due to weight and stability restrictions. Please note that the total weight of the customer, their assistant and their mobility aid must be less than 300 kg (660 lb). This is to ensure the maximum weight capacity of our boarding ramps is not exceeded. The wheelchair also cannot exceed the width of the designated wheelchair seating area.
To avoid any disappointment on your day of travel, we would be happy to confirm in advance whether your wheelchair can be accommodated on board. Please send an email to [email protected], including an indication of the width and weight of your wheelchair.
Can I change the date (and time) of my tour?
Yes. If you want to change the date (and time) of your tour booking, we’ll need to know no later than 72 hours before your currently booked tour date and time. The speediest way to make changes to your booking is to chat with our friendly customer services team – just click the red chat button in the bottom right corner of your screen, or submit a request via our Contact Us Form.
