City Sightseeing Bus Tour runs in Spring and Summer only when the cruise ships are in port and it is designed to get you around the best of Oslo. There are 11 different stops and one close to the cruise ship terminal in Oslo. You can choose to stay on for the full loop or get off the bus at any of the stops. The full route takes approximately 90 minutes and the buses run every 30 minutes from 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM.

When you board the bus, you can listen to the commentary available in 7 different languages on the provided headsets. You can learn about the highlights and sights as you pass by. Every seat offers a good view so do not forget your camera. See the link below to download the map so you can plan your day.

Visit The Viking Ship Museum. It is most famous for the Oseberg ship, excavated from the largest known ship burial in the world. The ship was made by skilled 13th-century craftsmen who learned about Viking life. Soak up with culture and architecture at the Nobel Peace Center, the Stenersen Museum, and the Oslo City Hall. See the Oslo Opera House which is home to The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet and get to the top floor to get an astonishing view of the Barcode Buildings. From there, you can also take the tram to Ekeberg Sculpture Park to take a stroll while enjoying the 31 sculptures scattered around the park.

Hop off at the Ibsen Museum, which is dedicated to the 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet Henrik Ibsen. The museum is partly Ibsen's refurbished apartment where he lived in his later life until he died in 1906, and part exhibition space showcasing displays relating to his work. The Royal Palace was built in the first half of the 19th century as the Norwegian residence of Norwegian and Swedish King Charles III and is the official residence of the present Norwegian Monarch. Watch the changing of the guard and enjoy the surrounding parkland, which is open to all. Hop back on and head towards Akershus Slott (Akershus Castle) to learn of the fortified fort's history, enjoy stunning views from the top of the fortress, and meander through the beautiful grounds.

Enjoy the Fram and Norwegian Maritime Museum and its exhibits on coast culture and maritime history including boat models, fishing, marine archaeology, marine paintings, shipbuilding, and shipping. Hop back on up to the Vigeland Sculpture Park, home to a vast collection of sculptures. For opera lovers out there, this one is for you! The Oslo Opera House offers open-air concerts as well as fantastic views of the city if you climb its sloping rooftop! Fans of architecture will also enjoy admiring trendy Aker Brygge, a shopping center that was once a shipyard. Note that the entrance fees to the attractions are not included.

From 10:30 AM to 04:00 PM. The full circuit is 90 minutes and runs every 30 minutes.

This is a must if in Oslo for the first time. The city is amazing and if you want to see the best locations, you need to book this tour! They make it so easy for new visitors to see the best of the city and let them choose what to explore closer. I can not wait to bring more people next time!

The bus was very comfortable and the views seemed equally good from any seat. What I like about this excursion is that this is basically a looped route sightseeing option where you can just stay on the bus or jump off it at any of the stop along the route. We decided to stay on to listen to the commentary and got a great overview of it all. I highly recommended Shore Excursioneer, all the booking process was very smooth. We really enjoyed the Hop On Hop bus - our first but not our last.

I just came home from a cruise one of our port of calls was Oslo. The city seems to be growing and developing and the hop on hop off city tour gave us the chance to see a good portion of the city. The buses come back about every half hour so a bit of planning and you can see all you want and more. I really like the tour!

The buses are clean, bus drivers helpful, signs very well marked. Sound for commentary good. Better than taking a tour off the cruise ship. This is a great choice for people who want to do what they want, not be taken to places they are not interested in.

We cruise a couple of times a year and always try to do something different in each port we go to. This year we took an NCL 2 week cruise that went to some new places we had never been to. The Hop On Hop Off bus is an excellent way to know Oslo since it covers all the main attractions in the city. There are 15+ stops where you could get off the bus to look around and then get back on. The buses ran by about every 30 minutes so there never was wasted time waiting. Plan out your stops and where you want to go. Be sure to bring money for entrance fees to museums as those are not included (we ended up going to one and glad we had euros as they mention in the notes). We purchased the excursion tickets online before we left on the cruise which as very convenient! Using the Hop On Off bus was a very easy, safe and inexpensive way to get around.

The day was good, the weather was nice and getting the bus from the port was most convenient to get a feel of the city and get to the main attractions, was fully satisfied. We will sure look to see if there is a Hop On Hop Off bus tour in other cities we cruise to in the future.

We took the hop on hop off from our cruise terminal. I think it's the best hop on hop off of all we have taken. Just the drive is beautiful. It also stops at the worthwhile sites most people would be interested in seeing in Oslo! My wife took great pictures. My favorite stop was the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, of course, fee was not included, but we were prepared.

visited Norway as a gift and could not miss out visiting the Capital. Went during summer time and the weather was perfect. These hop on hops offs bus tours are the best way to venture into a new city since it gives you 24 hours access to the bus. My fav were Akershus fortress and the viking museum.
