Although Oslo is a nice city and there are plenty of attractions to keep you busy I would not recommend using the hop on hop off bus tour. The busses are unreliable. When we first arrived 3 busses went by (all full) so we had...More

I always use the "hop on hop off" bus's for city breaks. Give you a quick and easy sense of the city. Oslo is pretty easy to get around compared to other cities, but still worth it. If you can remember to take you own...More

Stops at the cruise ship dock, so pickup is easy provided you don't mind waiting a while. Lots of long delays at most stops mean it's a slow endeavour. 90 min is too long a cycle for the area covered. Still, better than nothingMore
