Sad new to hear about the demise of the Brisbane Explorer tourist bus after two years in existence, but never fear, coming soon is the All New Gurgler Brisbane Tourist Bus – The BNEXpress.
Some say that the Brisbane Explorer was too expensive, that the city is too boring for a Brisbane Tourist Bus, or that the route didn’t cover enough of Brisbane. We have solved all of those problems with the BNEXpress.
We are just in the final stages of getting the fleet of All New Gurgler Brisbane Tourist Buses – The BNEXpress – on the road, but thought we’d share what will be on offer soon.
Below he have outlined the Route, some special Theme Nights to make every day an occasion on the BNEXpress, and other inclusions which will make the All New Gurgler Brisbane Tourist Bus not only a proud ambassador to Brisbane Tourism, but a fun place for locals to hang.
