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!

Some of the puzzles were quite tricky, but they were all solvable. To compensate, there were sometimes easier puzzles. It was very good that you could easily get to the next place with the help of Google Maps. The pictures of the next puzzle locations were also helpful. All in all a successful game for the whole family. We'll definitely play it again in another city if we get a chance.

Very knowledgeable guide. Answered our questions, saw and learned a lot about the city and it’s history. Good walking pace. Opportunities to sit. Very kind guide. Good way to get oriented to Oslo in our first day.

Marie was a friendly and very knowledgeable guide with a pleasant manner and a clear speaking voice that even an old bloke like me who is half deaf could hear.

A nice tour, not too easy, not too difficult. Was a lot of fun.
