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!!

For a city where everything is incredibly expensive this was well worth the money. I great tour of the fjord on a crisp winters day. My recommendation if you are doing this tour in winter is to dress very warm. Thankfully I was wearing my ski pants and am so grateful I did.

It was really nice experience . The only advice I can give to the travellers - dress warm, it’s feels much colder in the sea than in Oslo. There are blankets available on the ship but still. It’s freezing there

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

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