Another great tour. Good English commentary with a good mix of information. With two cruise ships in port at the same time it could have been chaos but the ticketing was handled quickly and efficiently with no delays.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great tour. Free WiFi on bus allowed us to share bus ride/sights with family 12000 miles away. Great service.
Please alter website so number of persons /tickets can be printed on one page we had lost page two indicating two tickets but operator accepted readily. Great experience. Ray Simpson

Weather was terrible, rainy and cold but the bus was good. Alesund is somewhat spread out and if the weather had been better, it would have been a great tour.


3 star rating: Worth doing September 2015

The Hop on hop off bus is the easiest way to see Alesund but they don't run often enough so you spend a lot of time waiting for the bus.

Ronald B

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2014

The trip was well worthwhile however although we had booked and paid for the trip two weeks previously with a dedicated time it was more by luck than judgement that we caught the right bus. We still had to wait in a queue to collect our tickets and if there had been two more people had been in front of us we would not have caught the bus and had wait 45 minutes for the next one. DEFINITELY NOT ENOUGH buses with 2 cruise ships in the port - the business you must have lost that day phew. Your staff were aware of the situation its just a another case where senior management refuse to listen to staff on the ground.
