It was a fun day in Oslo for our family of four - two teenaged children - to follow the tour. The history and background information was just enough to take in and fulfill our Tourist needs. It’s nice to go at your own pace and the tour could be done in 2-3 hours or 2-3 days if you chose to go into and explore many diversions.

this is a must do if your visiting Oslo, the guide was very knowledgeable and friendly the food stops were fantastic ending with a wonderful waffle treat

Very entertaining and entertaining city tour. You get a good overview of the city and get some exciting historical information.
