Owner description: Bergen Hop on Hop Off Open Top Sightseeing Bus Tour

This tour is not to be confused with the English style open-topped bus tour. The tour has smaller red buses that may have a roof, but the sides are wide-open. We tried to get the familiar open topped bus, but it evidently wasn't running. We've been on more than a dozen hop on/offs in the past few years and this was one of the best. The driver was friendly, answered questions, and the taped tour was continuous with plenty of interesting facts and stops. The bus was comfortable and clean.

Lovely experience when I had such a short time to see the city. Gives you a really great perspective with incredible views in a short period, and if course, in several different languages. Great way to see Bergen!

Unfortunately the weather blighted our sight seeing tour of Bergen. Fortunately our bus had a roof but our journey did not leave the city limits much.
The old houses were very interesting and the other attractions did not appeal too much.
The cruise away from Bergen showed us a better perspective of the city and its surrouds.
would love to visit again on a sunny day.

Have just returned home from a cruise in Norway.
We did two Hop and and Off tours, the one in Oslo was bad.
Bergen on the other hand was a great experience.
Will recommend it, as it takes you on a Nice Tour for a fair price.
We listened to the English audio version and it was good.
Very informative, and they pointed out which houses/attractions were talked about, so we knew where to look.

We visited Bergen whilst cruising toward the Norwegian Fjords. There was an open top bus tour available, & we loved it. We saw most of the town from the bus, the top even closed automatically when it started raining! We managed to download our e-mails on the bus using free Wi fi. There is a scenic train ride available that we missed out on, as the queues were long each time we looked. Those that went up said that the views were great. The fish market is really interesting, you'll see live shellfish galore, fish & shellfish ready for sale & best of all, fish & shellfish being cooked on barbecues by the fish quay with hordes of locals & tourists waiting to buy & eat the platters. We shared a plate of scallops with salad, they were beautiful!! No doubt everything is fresh out of the sea! There are many souvenir stalls nearby for the shopaholics' I think you'd need more than 1 day to see the whole city, as we barely touched the surface. It was certainly memorable.
