  • We had only one day in Oslo this time and we were lucky to choice this sightseeing tour.
    Everything was great, Holmenkollen, the Vigeland park, the Fram Museum and last, but not least, our guide.
    The only problem was that we had'nt enough time in the park, only ca. 30 or 40 min. I think 1 hour in additional time would have been good.

  • This is a great tour if you want to see Oslo in a Nutshell . Our guide, Helen, was very knowledgeable and passionate about her country. She had a great sense of humour, despite there being a big group on our tour. Would recommend highly.

  • Learned a lot about Oslo, and this was another day that was well worth it. The guide was very informative and we saw many interesting sights.

  • It is the best way to cover the most important sightseeing spot in the city in few hours. The tour was on time and organized. I love it.

  • I felt that I really got a true sense of the City, visiting tourist areas and locations off the beaten path. The Viking Ship Museum is very much worth a visit! Amazing to see the centuries-old ships that have been restored and displayed.

  • Good overall for the sights in Oslo.

  • Really nice tour. Anybody that goes on this tour will enjoy it.

  • Great job

  • Excellent tour that includes somewhat remote areas we would have ignore otherwise.

  • It was a solid tour and we saw lots of interesting things. I was interested in the Viking Ship Museum and of course there wasn and #39;t enough time there so I returned the following day and spent the morning. Could have left out the stop at the ski jump. Overall I would recommend it.
