Today Paul was our guide. A friendly, spontaneous man with the necessary knowledge of Oslo. Touring on the scooter, in combination with Paul's knowledge, took us to places you wouldn't go otherwise (parks, bridges, alleys, markets and the 'normal sights'). We had the private tour on Sunday morning at 10 o'clock and that made it nice and quiet and we could drive through everything well. With the scooter you can really go anywhere, ideal. In short, a must!

What a fun experience! We (family of 3 adults) booked the private e-scooter city tour and 2 of us never rode an e-scooter! Took minutes to learn and we were off traveling around the easy roads of Oslo with a wonderful guide who took us to all the places you read about.

Excellent tour with an extremely friendly and very knowledgeable guide. We can unreservedly recommend both the guide and the tour as well as the provider

Very informative city tour with a knowledgeable guide. The e-scooter was explained well and was easy to use. I can only recommend. Great thing.

Katerina did a nice tour with us. It was very convenient to have our own guide just for our small group.
