This bus provided a tour that went everywhere we wanted to go in this pretty town. It ran frequently and had very good commentary.

Very nice way to see Alesund. We took the entire round trip first thing and listened to the audio. Then we decided where to "jump off" for the rest of our stay in Alesund.

We usually buy a Hop-on Hop-off ticket for each port - great for an overview of the highlights and you can get off at any stop. Commentary in several languages via earbuds - you might want to bring your own for better quality sound. This ticket was a little cheaper than buying one at the pier.

Great way to get around on your own time. Easy to hop off to enjoy lunch, shop, take pictures, etc., and then get back on the bus. Enjoyed the ongoing commentary about what we were seeing, including some local history.

Since we ordered this excursion through Costco prior to our trip, we were able to quickly redeem our ticket for the hop-on and off bus once we arrived in port. Other passengers still had to purchase their tickets there which caused a line. This was a nice overview of the city and we were able to accomplish more through this bus. Highly would recommend this over the ship's excursion and save $$
