Saw everything we wanted to see and information was very useful. Lots better than a tour who talk all the time!
Stopped right at the Viking museum and didn't have to wait long at all
Easy access to the hop on, hop off bus from the port, a clean and beautiful city.

Location of bus stops was excellent, close to the port and key points of interests
Allow us to browse around key places with good amount of time and the drivers are friendly and helpful
Very impressive views at Vigeland Scrupture Park and Akershus Castle

Great value for the money. Best way to see the city on a limited schedule with commentary. The free Wi-Fi was great!!
Another excellent stop for us with this tour something we would highly recommend!
We were on a cruise with limited time in the city. They picked us up at the pier and took us to the sights we wanted to see.
Easy port pick up. The bus stops right next to the ship and the Castle. Oslo is spotless, beautiful. We would love to go again. We wanted to visit the Viking museum and it was really good. Amazing how these boats were able to go as far overseas as they did, the Vikings must have been an amazing race of people. We didn't want to venture too far and so this tour was idea for us, obviously didn't inherit many Viking genes !
The guides are the usual tour bus multi lingual headphones and provide more than enough info. Book it, save your feet for the climb up to the castle.
Brilliant, bus waiting two minutes from ship. Literally got off ship onto bus.
We thoroughly enjoyed te hop on hop off bus. First we rode the bus to see what and where the exhibits were and then went back to see them.
We use hop o0n hop off on all our holidays, we find we can visit or explore at our leisure without having to return to a coach at a set time. The commentary is informative and helps to decide where to stop.
Picked us up fight at the disembarkation place. Just make sure that you board the one that is labeled City Sightseeing hop-on hop-off and it worked great !
The bus came right to our ship. Oslo is a big city with many sites spread out in a large area. The hop-on-hop off made it easy to get from site to site. It was raining the day we visited Oslo and the bus made it convenient .to stay dry while traveling between sites. It was also possible to skip some outside venues and come back later when the showers stopped. In Oslo as in some other locations, there are copy cat hop-on-hop off buses that look almost identical. People were frequently trying to get on the wrong buses. Make sure you note the slight differences between them. Our's was identified as the "Official" hop-on-hop off. Bus staff pointed this out at our first ship side stop.
pick up right at pier - great - 1 1/2 hour around the circuit - good way to see the city even on a rainy day

Brilliant. Picked up right outside ship, by very friendly staff. Good value trip.

Using the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus service is probably the best way to see and discover any City. The Oslo experience is no exception. My tip is and always has been, to do a complete circle first, noting the particular places of intrigue/interest and then do the Hop-On Hop-Off bit. One confusing situation is that most Cities have more than one Company providing this service and all of them have turned the initiative into an art form by adding different coloured Tours which sometimes cross-over into their other Tours - so you need to be careful that your plans don't mix with other Company's!!
Another consideration is that whilst the average length of a round trip may be advised as 1.5 hours, it is more likely to be 2hours, also the frequency, often advised by driver and/or brochure as 15-20 mins couldn't be further from the truth! More like 30 -50 mins. Everything is dependent upon the flow of traffic - as it does anywhere in the World.
Apart from the above considerations all went.
There were many buses at the stop near the cruise port and we were rapidly on our way. We appreciated the info available in French.
The hop on-hop off bus was a great way to see what you needed. Super easy to use!
