The trip is really amazing, the electric boat is very silent we didn’t even notice we were sailing already. You won’t get seasick on this trip. The environment is great. Make sure you are properly clothed, although you can decide at any time to sit inside or outside. The staff was very attentive, especially the person selling food and beverage. He was very accommodating and assistive, kudos to him. We’ve felt very taken care of. However, the audio tour wasn’t always clearly understandable. But then, we were quite chatty within our group. It would be cool if alcohol could be sold. I that would be perfect. In any way I highly suggest this trip!!

We really did enjoy the trip and the guy who is selling food is very asisstive and knowledgable kudos to him! I just suggest for the trip to have more food or hope you offer a longer trip with food

The ride was really cool! The guide managed to convey to me the traditions and customs of this beautiful people. She was very knowledgeable about both the little gems of the city and the history.

Well worth the money! Very helpful staff at Oslo S when collecting the pass and so easy to use on buses, trams and entrance to Rose Castle and Folkmuseum's Xmas Fair.

Great trip; excellent commentary. Blankets provided as well for outdoor.
