It has been a really excellent tour. from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. With a veteran guide who was a charm. She spoke in English but the audio guide had Spanish. For a city with such long distances between the different places to visit, it is worth taking this visit. Both me and my family liked it a lot, the trip through the fantastic fjords, an unparalleled environment, great background music and we tried some shrimp that were excellent. The schedule and punctuality very good, nothing to object.

Excellent comprehensive and informative tour. Our tour guide (didn't catch the name but she was an older woman) was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and high energy dropping knowledge constantly during the whole trip (except the cruise which has separate announcer guide).

Great sightseeing tours. Best way to see the city and highlights the important sites in the area. The cruise was excellent. Enjoyed the beauty of Fjord , nature and houses by the waterfront. I recommend the full day combination with bus and boat option.

The performance was great, the shrimp were abundant, and the views were stunning. This was an excellent way to sail in Oslo

This was a great one day tour to get to know the basics of Oslo.
