Our guide Stian was awesome. We ended up with a lot of rain today, and he handled it like a pro. He taught us a lot about Oslo and Norway, none of which I knew, I’m embarrassed to admit. I really enjoyed the Vigeland statue park. So much history there and it was very interesting. The Fram museum is cool, I felt like I was really on the gigantic ship. The Viking museum was also awesome. We ended up bailing out on the fjord tour, mostly because it’s pouring, and foggy and we just left from five days in Ålesund where we so some amazing fjords. Stian was informative and helpful for us, my mom is getting over a hip injury and needed extra time, he helped show us where the elevators were and waited. It was an easy experience, the bus was comfortable, and the guide was great. I would highly recommend this tour, and hopefully you get a nice day!

This was an excellent introduction to Oslo with varied sites and activities. Margaret was amazing, keeping us all moving in English and German. It was useful to have transport to the more outlying sites, such as the Ski jump, sculpture park and Fram and Folk Museums. If you want a more in depth visit, especially to the Folk Museum, you would need to go back to visit more. The Viking Museum is now closed to 2024, which I only realised on the tour. The fjord trip was ok, I’m glad I did it, but not much to see, and of course it was freezing so wrap up warm. There are drinks and snacks on board, commentary about a few things in English and I think Spanish. The start point is indicated on a tiny sign outside the toy shop, and the Google map takes you to the wrong place, so beware!

The tour was great. One gets to see many wonderful places, and hear about them from an amazing tour guide. I hope the weather will serve you like it served us! Enjoy wonderful Oslo!

It was nice driving around without too much traffic. The guide was great and the driver superb. It was great to see the old historic ships

The combination of excursions in this activity is very worthwhile. The guide knew a lot to tell in a pleasant way.
