Excellent, good value guide around Oslo with just enough information on the places of interest visited. It was useful that all the history and extra information could be viewed once the walk was finished. This helps if planning to return to any sites. Not for the faint hearted though: we walked 20000 steps! If it is the first time using these, be aware that you have to download the World Trail App to log in, not just the Get Your Guide. Will definitely look out for these in other cities we visit.

Great idea, so much fun! It is so much better than the classical city tour with a classical city guide! Interesting story, interesting places. It was exactly what I need in a new town: to visit some interesting places related with the city, to find out something about them and not to be bored in the same time. I will play your game in the next city, for sure!

Excellent small group activity allowing us to see and understand the importance of Christmas in Oslo and Norway generally. This walk accompanied by a competent guide is recommended.

Enjoyed it found out things I never expected to about Norway and saw some fantastic things we wouldn't have normally seen

Nice tour, you can see the most important sights in a short time. The German translation would be great.
