Took the City Train sightseeing tour. It was fun and the price was reasonable. They provided headphones and the commentary was available in nine languages.

Fortunately, we were in Alesund on a quiet day without many people about, so buying tickets for the train right at the cruise dock was quick and easy, and we only had to wait about 15 minutes for the tour to depart. The tour was...More
