Great way to get around--particularly if you want to get to the Viking Museum and Kon Tiki as they're not close to rest of city. Stops at all the touristy places and saves some walking. I'd do it again.
Was OK

It visited some highlights, but near the opera house, the route seemed to duplicate the stops . It was a weird route

Very good way to get around the city and see major sights. The only thing that surprised us is that in one stop the driver said "it's my break, get off and take the next bus."
After we finally found the bus
, Jun 2019
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.
Such a great tour of the city, we loved...

Such a great tour of the city, we loved Oslo.
Liked the Canal Cruise better than the buses.
, Aug 2018
We had two days of the HopOnHopOff buses and boats. We got tired of the loud repetitive music on the buses and the very limited amount of information about the places we passed. However, we loved canal cruise with Alexander as our 'guide'. He was very knowledgeable and personable. Highly recommend. We'd take the buses again but liked to boats better.
Too few buses that let's you wait long period of times to catch the next bus

There are only a few buses running which makes one wait up to 45 minutes to 1 hour for the next bus. I was a block from the Hop on Hop off bus and trying to catch bus which I have waited over 45 minutes and waved the driver to stop to board which was only a few yards away and did not STOP so I ended up waiting for another 45 minutes for the next bus..A total wait of 1.5 hour wait. Drivers are not flexible and indifferent to customer's needs
Easy way to see the major sights

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.
This was our first time doing a hop...

This was our first time doing a hop on- hop off tour. I had researched the highlights of Oslo ahead of time, so knew which stops we wanted to get off at. We really enjoyed the Vigegand sculpture park -- it was so unique. We walked around the parliament area and went to the Royal palace -- we were lucky to be able to go into it for a guided tour. Most of the tickets are pre-purchased on-line, with only a few spots available to last-minute customers. Oslo isn't a hard place to get around, so this bus worked really well for us
Two challenges for the bus operator
, Jul 2018
Our ship was not at the cruise terminal therefore the bus route was changed accordingly but we didn't know how in advance. The construction work and related traffic problems in the city center reduced the fun significantly. But that's not the bus operatrors fault.
