This a total waste of money. They charge you $15/person for something that you can walk and enjoy more. They make it appear that they are going to show you the whole city but what they actually do is just go around and around to...More

This is a reasonably priced option ($15-20/pp at the time of this writeup), and they take dollars or euros or NOK, so paying is easy with any of these currencies. The only issue is they advertise one stop in town, but don't clearly say your...More

There are not many reviews, and most are terrible. Now I know why. The "sell" at the cruise dock is a discounted HOHO type excursion. Simply not true. The staff at the dock should be outfitted with a mask and a gun - very close...More

Guided tour of Kristiansand with "City Train". An enjoyable, informative experience for both adults and children. The train stops at the Fish Quay, Nupen Park, the Visitors' Harbour, the town beach (Bystranda) and Posebyen (the oldest part of Kristiansand). When cruise ships visits Kristiansand the...More
