Nice way to see the city. Appears to have hit all the highlights. Recorded audio was very informative, and useful.
Chaotic buses

Not very well organised buses chaotic. Too many people and not enough buses. Tickets not checked and people boarding at rear entrance. Absolute shambles and waste of money.

Great way to learn and see the sights on our own time! At the dock when ship docked! If a bus was filled soon a second were arrive
Cancelled tour

Hop on and off was canceled that day due to the citywide gay/pride parade how do I get a refund? The office in Oslo told us to contact you since that’s where we bought the tickets
Excellent way to see Oslo during cruise port stop

The pick up location was right outside the cruise port building, so get tickets ahead so as not to wait in the queue for same-day purchase. The stops were in great locations to the main tourist attractions (we went to the Viking Museum and Vigeland Park) so having this option available to us made our day in Oslo wonderful.

Hop-On Hop-Off tour was very convenient from Oslo cruise port terminal. The bus was waiting right at the gate of the terminal before the time indicated on the confirmation voucher for the first tour. City sightseeing was prominently written on the red coloured bus and the staff was quick enough to exchange our booking confirmation vouchers for the tickets. The bus goes on all the highlights of the city and the frequency of the buses is good. The city of Oslo and attractions are quite spread out in area and therefore walking the city could be tiresome and choosing HOHO tours are economic options. Do check the opening and closing times of the places of attraction carefully. For passengers arriving in Oslo on cruise and only have one day, this tour is highly recommended.

The bus tour in Oslo was good and informative. It enabled my wife and I to see the main points of interest in Oslo within the limited timescale allowed by our cruise ship visit. The bus was literally feet from the ship and brought us back to the same spot in plenty of time. If anyone is going to Oslo in 2018 there are a lot of road works in the city centre which make the bus journey a little tortuous but nonetheless the tour is recommended. There was only time for one real stop off as we only had 4 hours in total to be safe. We opted for the Viking ship museum which was first class.If we had had another 2 hours the other museums are within short walking of this museum and we would have hit them all in turn. The only negative I can mention was the rather angry demeanour of the Bus Conductor who was quite rude to many guests who had not pre booked and who could have marred the experience for some. Otherwise I WOULD GIVE THIS EXCURSION A 5 SATR RATING
