Oslo City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Oslo, Norway

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We basically used the hop on hop off bus for transport from our cruise ship to a couple of particular attractions, such as the Viking ship museum and for transport back to the city and the cruise terminal. Like all hop on hop off busses, they seem awfully slow to get around and take longer than you might expect to do a circuit. I refer to some of these buses as hop on - don't go! This particular bus was better than some, but not ideal either. And do they represent value for money? I guess that depends on how much time you have. The reality is, that for one day, they don't represent very good value, when time is considered waiting for the bus and allowing sufficient time to visit museums etcetera. May be a better option for a longer stay.

4-Day Tour from Frankfurt to Munich: Romantic Road, Rothenburg, Augsburg, Neuschwanstein Castle

Frankfurt, Germany

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The 4 day romantic road tour was quite enjoyable. We particularly enjoyed the area around Ludwig's castle and the Hotel Meuller was very very nice. Didn't think much of Augsberg and wondered why we had to stay there at all when the time could have been better spent elsewhere. Really enjoyed Rothenberg and again the accommodation provided there was excellent. Commentary on the bus was a bit limited and could be improved a bit.

Rhine Valley Trip from Frankfurt including Rhine River Cruise

Frankfurt, Germany

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The cruise was the highlight, but to get to the cruise base involved a lot of driving. I thought the lunch and the return to the 'wine tasting' was all a little farcical. I would rate this tour as just OK for the money it cost.

Heidelberg Half-Day Trip from Frankfurt

Frankfurt, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The visit to Heidelberg was great. This little town sells itself with its history and beautiful setting. The bus ride was pleasant and overall I thought the tour to be well balanced. Not too much, not too little, just right, like the porridge in the three bears story.
