Despicable company. We had my disabled mother with us and they lied and told us that they go to the 3 swords. When we got off it was a 35 minute walk away!! I phoned them immediately but they would only give us 50% back....More

Hi, We are sorry to learn that our product has left you with a “pack them in and ship them out” experience. The Hop-On Hop-Off service is supposed to provide our guests with transport to the attractions and an opportunity of getting of the bus...More

Don't fall for the trap of taking this tour when getting off your cruise ship or visiting Stavanger. It is a real rip off. We paid $50 pp to go a few stops from the cruise terminal to the Petroleum museum which ended up to...More
