    We walked about 5 miles on our tour of Oslo, but it was a great tour. Sandra was very knowledgeable and a fun guide. Totally worth the price.

    Our guide, Irina, promptly met us at our hotel and we started the walking tour along the main pedestrian street of Karl Johans Gate. Irina had much interesting information to impart and in turn we had many questions. Maybe this was the reason that the tour of the city didn't cover as much ground as we anticipated. Nonetheless, it was a really good overview, taking in among other the Town Hall, Opera House, and the Akershus fortress. We also strolled through the charming Bankplassen, with Olso's oldest restaurant, Engebert - a highlight and returned there the next day for lunch. We very much enjoyed not being part of a big group and learning about Oslo's history. Well done to Irina!
