We had horrible time and wasted lots of time trying to locate the bus and itinerary! Couldn’t find stops anywhere on The viator site and called the phone number no help. It was hectic until we finally saw the bus by this time it was afternoon so we only had half day to use the bus.
Did a good job covering the major tourist sites of Oslo and easy to access from cruise ships. Need to check your seat audio connections before you get too comfortable, some of the connection top side did not work on one bus, second bus showed no such problem. Another thing about hop-on hop-off buses, there are 2 companies through Europe that use that title, one is City Sightseeing and the other is Red Buses. Both go to all major tourist sights.
I wish the hours for the tour were longer. The bus also waits too long at stop 1 or 3. Great way to see the city. We always use these tours for any city we visit.
Great. We spent almost all good attractions in Oslo by joining this hop-on hop off tour. Excellent way to see the city for the first timers.
With 4-5 different languages, the bus tour major spots. We were able to see good street view. I did not know that I was supposed to pick up a earphone. I wish the driver were a bit more friendly.
Great way of seeing the city. Stops at all the popular attraction - Viking and Fram museums etc.
Brilliant way to get around Oslo and goes past all the tourist attractions of interest. We were on a cruise and the bus stopped next to our ship which was a bonus, saves walking or looking for the bus stop. Oslo is under quite a bit of building construction at present but that doesn't stop the buses going about the streets. All in all a fantastic way to get around with super commentary on the areas of interest.
The City Sightseeing Oslo HoHo Tour was wonderful - it took us around the city to see and hear about the main sights and events of Oslo. We only had one day in Oslo, so this tour gave us a great overview of a beautiful city. The narration gave us fascinating history and information. I especially enjoyed seeing Oslo's Royal Palace, the home/studio of Edvard Munch, and the site where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded. We also got a very good idea of the layout of Oslo, travelling through residential areas, seeing the cows of the royal family peacefully grazing in their meadow, and getting a thorough tour of the downtown shopping area. Oslo is a beautiful city, and we were able to see most of it in a fun and informative way.
