What People Are Saying About Oslofjord
Very good tour with very laid back british guide, who was excite about Oslo and Norway. We was the main sights, and had time to stop and wander at the City Hall and at Vigeland Sculpture Park. The cycling is easy, no steep hills or difficult traffic. Cycling allows you to get around, and you experience the city while getting to the next stop.
Crew was very pleasant and informative. Beautiful vessel with lots of seating for optimal photo opts. Very smooth ride and wonderful day to view Oslo and the Fiord.
We had great weather, fortunately. The crew was very nice. The shrimp were some of the best we have had (served typical Norwegain style).
Very enjoyable trip out to see the islands and sites of Oslo fjord. Good summer evening trip. Helpful crew, good fresh shrimp buffet. Lovely relaxed trip on comfortable masted ship.
We can highly recommend this tour. It gives a great overview of the fjord close to Oslo. The shrimps were delicious and fresh. With the good music in the background, the tour was very relaxing.
