Such a tour gives you a great (first) impression of Oslo, gives you brief information about the sights, history, etc.. Equipped like this, you can go on a discovery tour yourself and take a detailed look at what interests you the most. Hop off where you want to take a closer look and hop back on when you need to continue - you've got all day.

It was a lovely little trip and the staff were quite helpful and spoke multiple different languages. The tour is offered in several different languages as well. The 24hrs start from the time you activate your ticket upon boarding according to the driver.
