hoho Alesund highlights.

This was a great way to see all the main sights in Alesund. Would suggest purchasing the ticket which includes admission to the Atlantic Aquarium which provides a substantial discount from purchasing it separately from the bus. A lovely clean city . The aquarium is magnificent and not to be missed. No crowding on the hoho bus and very prompt,friendly and courteous service.

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.

Inexpensive sightseeing

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.
