Our Guide ( the charming scottsman, forgot his name) was great. We needed a while to get used to his kinda special way of speaking. But after that it was a blast. Especially for the kids that were there (they have to be old enough for quite gory stories though). Lots of audience participation and joking around. you really got the impression that he likes his role as mysterious storyteller, so the time with him just flies while exploring this beautiful old town.

A great day is coming to an end. The hike with George was awesome. We walked a lot and always took short breaks, which was very good because of the temperatures, so that we didn't get cold. Lunch was super delicious! Unfortunately we couldn't walk across the lake because it wasn't frozen hard enough yet. This tour with Green Trails is highly recommended!!

They were very accomodating to change of bookings and providing all equipment. Thanks.

Great tour showing us the various sights of Oslo. Extremely knowledgeable guide.

Tour was great and very plesant in the heart of the city. We can recommend.
