Good way to see Oslo!!!

We enjoyed this very much but were a bit disappointed when we arrived at 9:40am and although there was a bus at the stop, we had to wait for another. Not sure why, but it caused us to depart the tour early at the end of the day. A bit too much waiting at stops. Drivers were OK but not as friendly as I expected! Oh well, still a wonderful way to see the city!!!

Enjoyed HOHOFF and especially the boat ride.

The King of France was in town so traffic was awful in city center. Waited thru 3 stoplights just to move a foot forward. HOHOFF is the way to go to see the city. The lady commentator on the boat tour spoke in three languages. I was impressed. Get off at Nyven Canal and have a hot dog and beer. Much fun. Then hop back on and continue.

Once on the bus, all good

Good attractions en route and interesting commentary plus well-appointed buses BUT the operator wasn’t prepared for my e ticket despite it showing clearly on my iPhone as being ‘confirmed and paid’. She said she would only accept a printed ticket (which is hopeless for tourists!) and I had to stand firm to be let on the bus. If e tickets are issued then they must be accepted. Company needs to vastly improve this part of its service.
