The bus started at stop 8 for us which was great. We arrived at the Funicular (stop12) at 9:30 and there was a very short line-up. Went to the top and stayed there for about 2 1/2 hours. When we returned to the bottom, the line was very long. Continuing on the Hop On Hop Off, we went full circle and then got off where we wanted. Loved it.
The hop on hop off bus in Bergen was easy to get to. We did a prepaid ticket. That is highly recommended. Getting to the funicular early was key. It was our first stop! The buses ran continually. You didn't have to wait long to get the next bus. This seemed to be so better managed than the hop on hop off buses in Alesund.

earphones provided, multiple languages available. A good overview of Bergen. Would have gotten off at the fish market, but bus so crowded we were afraid we would not be able to get back on.

The bus made many stops at places of interest, and there were plenty of interesting things to see in the city. The drivers gave helpful information and the buses came about every 20 minutes. We had a wonderful day!
