This is the worst hop on hop off tour ever. All buses came full. They didn't ask to add an empty one to the line to accommodate for the lines of people waiting. We waited for an hour and the person handling the queue was rude and unhelpful. He told us to go to the next stop and try our luck there. Would not recommend this service.

Oslo is a fabulous and handsome city. Beautiful and well kept. If you go you must get an Oslo Pass as it gives you free travel on all transport plus entrance to all museums and works out excellent value for money

This is a complete waste of time and and (a lot) of money. On one of the buses the audio did not work at all, the information you get is terrible and a lot of it totally unnecessary and stupid.
The wait at the cruise terminal was 30 minutes while we waited for several dozen elderly cruisers to....hop on....
Last and not least you spend a whole lot of time on the crowded bus going around an area that can easily be covered on foot if you are semi fit, you also get to see suburban Oslo which is quite attractive and worth a look.

Good way to see a very nice and interesting city. We enjoyed the Viking Ship Museum and the downtown stops and walked back to see the stuff that interested us. The voice system was good compared to some other cities and the drivers were friendly and helpful.
They picked us up at the ship which was very convenient.

This tour was a total tourist trap ! We wanted a city pass to visit Oslo, and they sold us this tourist attraction ! The guy who sold that at the kiosk near the campus said we could have free entrances to all the museums for the day and we could go to the bus all the time we wanted!
We wanted to pay by card and he said no only cash.. so we paid by cash and he gave us a voucher each that we used for the national gallery and it worked. Once we went to the first bus trip, the driver took our voucher and gave us back one ticket for the 2 of us and didn't want to explain us why he took the vouchers ! So when we arrived at the Other museum, they didn't want to give us the free entrance because we were suppose to have the vouchers !
Hopefully the ladies at the museums were very nice and let us in but the company shouldn't be able to do that ! I think it was illegal to do that as the vouchers had no dates and no hours or no names on it !

So be careful.. I will never take this company ever again

Dear Elise

Thank you for your feedback.
When you exchanged the voucher, you should have been given a specific Oslo City Card ticket. To our understanding, this did not happen correctly. We would like to apologise for this incident. Hope you had a memorable visit in the Norwegian capital, and we wish you a pleasant autumn.

Kind regards
