What people are saying about Oslo

We arrived at the Paradox Museum and where welcomed by lovely staff who explained that our experience would be better when we would scan QR Codes explaining the illusions. We had a lot of fun taking photos and reading the explainations of the pieces. The staff was always friendly and helpful, making sure we could get a picture at each station.

Our tour guide, Margrete, and coach driver, are awesome! Thank you for a great city tour! I learned a lot, better than roaming around myself without knowing the history, the stories, and the fantastic ride and views :) Happy Holidays :)

Great tour. Fantastic guide and driver. Interesting and informative. Highly recommended to capture the main sights of Oslo in a short time, as we only had 1 full day there.

Great to see is a bid like the Escher museum in the Netherlands

Informative guide. One day is sufficient to explore Oslo.
