Hop-On Hop-Off tour was very convenient from Oslo cruise port terminal. The bus was waiting right at the gate of the terminal before the time indicated on the confirmation voucher for the first tour. City sightseeing was prominently written on the red coloured bus and the staff was quick enough to exchange our booking confirmation vouchers for the tickets. The bus goes on all the highlights of the city and the frequency of the buses is good. The city of Oslo and attractions are quite spread out in area and therefore walking the city could be tiresome and choosing HOHO tours are economic options. Do check the opening and closing times of the places of attraction carefully. For passengers arriving in Oslo on cruise and only have one day, this tour is highly recommended.

The bus tour in Oslo was good and informative. It enabled my wife and I to see the main points of interest in Oslo within the limited timescale allowed by our cruise ship visit. The bus was literally feet from the ship and brought us back to the same spot in plenty of time. If anyone is going to Oslo in 2018 there are a lot of road works in the city centre which make the bus journey a little tortuous but nonetheless the tour is recommended. There was only time for one real stop off as we only had 4 hours in total to be safe. We opted for the Viking ship museum which was first class.If we had had another 2 hours the other museums are within short walking of this museum and we would have hit them all in turn. The only negative I can mention was the rather angry demeanour of the Bus Conductor who was quite rude to many guests who had not pre booked and who could have marred the experience for some. Otherwise I WOULD GIVE THIS EXCURSION A 5 SATR RATING

Worked very well as a shore excursion from the ship. They picked us up right at the ship and dropped us off nearby. Very convenient and an easy way to see the city!

Overall good experience. Satisfied except the cost was lower if we were to buy the bus ticket there.

This was a good way to get to the main points of interest in Oslo, the audio provided is OK, not great but helpful.

, Jun 2017

We got on the bus and then realized that two of the speakers were not working - the bus was full so we could not change seats. We told a staff member that the audio was not working, but they did not do anything about it, not even apologize. So, we missed teh commentary for at least the first 8 - 10 stops

The bus(s) were frequent and plenty of them. We were able to get around the city and see all the sites outside the city that would not be accessible with a walking tour. The narration was also clear and informative. We recommend this option for a good overview of the city.

Booked as part of a cruise ship port day. Good option to see the city highlights with the freedom to spend time spent at each location

, May 2017

Good city with hop-on and hop-off bus is adequate.

, Oct 2016

I have taken a number of hop on hop off tours and realize that I find it difficult to concentrate on the materials offered. People are talking, arriving,. leaving --- and it is all too much of a distraction for me. The concept is great and Oslo is as good as any of the others but it is my ability to block out distractions that is bothersome. I will find another way of seeing cities I visit.
