The tour bus comes with headphones to listen to history and highlights of the city while you travel from highlight to highlight. There were many languages to choose from. It was always easy to spot a bus and bus stop.

Excellent tour and excellent organization.

A good way to get around the town. It gets a little crowded, so get out to busy early. The roads are a little thrilling. It is a cheaper way to see the area instead of taking one of the overpriced tours offered by the cruise lines.

Buses right at the pier, all the highlights are on the route, English ear piece guide. We took entire circuit once to decide which stops to hit, and get the lay of the land. Then got off at 3 different locations. Easy around the city. Only way to see the port city.

This may seem like a simple shore excursion to sign up for....but it really was just the right thing for Alesund. We so enjoyed the whole circuit, but we particularly enjoyed the Sunnmore museum which is an outdoor museum with lots of historic buildings that have all been moved there offering a beautiful/charming setting and a nice education.
