Like most places, we go on our own, and where possible we take advantage of the hop on hop off buses, we find this is the best way to get around & see as much as possible. The 1st stop we got of was the train up the hill, we actually got got a combined ticket which saved us queuing for a while. The views from the top are spectacular! The 2nd place we went was the world heritage site, the buildings there are stunning. We almost missed the boat as the bus returning was delayed! We made it, so it was all ok!

Didn't get to see everything I wanted to as the ship seemed to dock a long way from the town.

We took a pretty pricey taxi to the Stave Church and were very happy to have done so. There's a nice walk to the church and while it's a reproduction it is nonetheless remarkable. We also took the tourist train here because we didn't want to wait 2 hours for the funicular, nor did we want the hop on hop off. the little train has a lookout stop and it suited us fine. We walked back to the ship along the harbour and enjoyed the old wharf. It was really fantastic.

Since i have spent time in Bergen, I took the Hardangerfjord & Highlands of Scenic Norway-7.5 hours. It did include a panoramic city tour as well and the the tour was very scenic. The Steinsdal Waterfall was fun because you can walk under it. I recommend it.
