Very nice tour! It was quite uphill at times for us from northern Germany, but it was easily doable. We visited beautiful places! The guide - Paul - was a little unsure because he hadn't been there long. But it was no problem at all.

My tour was great! Jon and Becca (I think that was her name!) were absolutely fantastic guides - friendly, funny and knowledgable. It was such a great way to see the city and embrace the “friluftsliv”. Thank you so much!

Our tour guide, Shaf, was very good. He was knowledgeable, engaging, entertaining and clearly happy with his city. The pace and time to wander at different stops was well balanced. Would definitely recommend!

It was brilliant, totally recommend it to see all the main sights with a very knowledgable guide. The weather was great & cycling is easy in Oslo with minimal traffic & a mainly flat route. I loved it!

Interesting and pleasant visit Very friendly guide To do, to discover Oslo in a few hours, it's great.
