While the bus was very comfortable and the drivers very friendly it failed to offer the service promised. The timetable showed a bus leaving at 14.10 but it never arrived - instead we had to wait until 14.55 which was the next bus anyway. This...More

Visited Predikestolen with my daughter, and brought tickets from Stavanger at Tide Reiser. There is too few inbound (home) tours, resulting in long waiting time and huge frustration on-boarding the bus. I will suggest travelers to consider alternatives, eg rentals.

Efficient. Just make sure your time tables are in order. Lysefjord is quite isolated and missing a ferry may delay your stay for a up to a day.

Just buy your ticket and they make it very easy to get to Preikestolen. Price is reasonable and their bus is very comfortable.

The bus in the morning took way more people than it could, some people had to stand up all the way to Preikestolen. On our way back, the bus was late and so was the ferry. We're tired from the hiking and we expected a...More

Mr. Abraham, we do feel this is a bit unfair rating us this low. According to EU / Norwegian law the Preikestolbus can take on standing passengers in addition to the seated. IF one wants to stand, or one could wait for the second bus...More
