I've used these tour buses in quite a few cities and this was by far the worst experience I've had. Generally they are good. The tours are always expensive, but this (at 270 Kr) was particularly poor value for money. The buses only run from 10am to 4pm, with each bus leaving at 30 minute intervals. I purchased my ticket...

Hardest thing was being able to get on this bus. Too many people (bus employees) saying the opposite to each other. So waited a fair while to even catch it. Don't think the operators wanted to be there...at least not the ones on this day. However, the trip was great and worth while doing though was a bit short on... More

Oslo in the winter... What was I thinking!!! But guess what, not bad at all! We spent two nights, as the first leg of our three-country tour in search of the Northern Lights, (which we never got to see by the way... Seems like God was in an energy saving mode and He turned the lights off!) But coming back... More

THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE CITYSIGHTSEEING IN GEIRANGER. we went to Norway through the Fjords in July this year. City Sightseeing offer guided tour trips at most of the destinations. They are very pricey. In geiranger, despite the heavy rain, they took us up the mountain top, knowing we would not see a single waterfall because of the mist. They... More

Open top sightseeing bus tour: This was the worst sightseeing experience I have had. Not only because of the fact that the bus only runs every 30 minutes, but the stops are not clearly identified or marked at all, and the tickets are way oversold. I could get over having to wait 20-30 minutes for the bus. However, my real... More

We joined this tour to see the sights with the view of hopping on and off. We purchased the two day ticket meaning that we could spread viewings over two days. Well the schedule for the bus was a joke, the stops that it says it stops at - they don't. When pinned down by the staff the stated that... More
