What is your policy in the event of bad weather?

With the exception of extreme weather conditions that would jeopardize safety, our tours operate in all weather, rain or shine. Refunds due to weather will not be granted unless the service is suspended as a result of weather.

I bought the ticket but it’s for someone else. It has my name on it, is this ok?

You're all set! Simply show your voucher(s) to any member of on-street staff who will scan the QR code and hand over your yellow Big Bus Tour tickets. Don't lose them, they're like gold (cash) and cannot be replaced.

I bought my ticket but now can’t make that date, can I use it on another day?

Bus tour tickets purchased online or via the app are typically valid for six months up until the point of the ticket being scanned (redeemed) – then the clock starts ticking and you’ll need to enjoy your tour within the time purchased. This is usually, one, two or three days.

Are buses wheelchair accessible?

Yes, the lower decks of our buses are wheelchair accessible, with ramps enabling access to all vehicles within the Darwin fleet. The boarding areas in the proximity of our bus stops in Darwin 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 explorerdarwin@gmail.com, including an indication of the width and weight of your wheelchair.
