Did this tour today with my partner, was a very good way to see Oslo. We bought our tickets from the city sightseeing stop outside of Oslo central train station. They spoke English too which was excellent. I would recommend only buying a 24 ticket and use it from start to finish as you can pretty much see everything within... More

We were lucky to take this tour when all buses were working. We never had to wait for more than a few minutes anywhere. We did the full round trip, an hour and a half, on the first bus of the day and then stayed on, and off for the rest. Certainly got our money's worth! No complaints at all.

Sept 29th 2016 last day of their tour season and they were not prepared for the tourists off the Norwegian Star. They sold you a ticket without telling us that they were operating with only a few buses and that your wait might be up to an hour.Totally not acceptable!

Oslo really isn't a tourist destination. It is a nice clean town that is home to people who live, work and socialize together. Therefore, the city sightseeing tour was underwhelming. I would have liked to visit the Viking Ship museum but due to time constraints was unable to do so. Those that did visit the museum loved it. I think... More

My wife and I have used this red bus service in many cities in the USA and overseas. This operation was a poor example when compared with many others that we have taken. It seemed they were more interested in selling their service to cruise passengers(which we were) and then spending way too much time messing around in the cruise... More

Booked on 9/26/16. We always book a "hop on hop off" bus the first time we arrive at any big city and we stay on the bus for a whole loop on that first ride. That way we can choose the spots we want to explore in more depth later on. With good planning these buses can also become a... More

Im surprised at the negative reviews. We were lucky to catch the days last bus. My wife and I enjoyed the trip and especially due to the woman who led us. She was very knowledgeable and asked the bus (about 80% full) which language we spoke. The trip provided a great overview of the city and took us to the... More

Paid the exorbitant NOK285 each (that's A$46 in my currency!) for the day ticket. Commentary was useless, drivers didn't care. We were made to change buses at the cruise terminal as it was "the last bus of the day" at 1530 - this despite the brochure saying the last bus would come through there around 1700. Told the driver of... More

Complete let down. I was expecting more but was a waste of 300 krone. Good if you are tired and won't mind going round the circle. I will recommend 'Oslo City Card' instead of this.
