What people are saying about Oslo

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 1,214 reviews

Excellent service: easy to book, friendly staff, smooth journey, reasonably priced by Norway standards, blankets available, good bar service, good toilets, and interesting and easy to hear commentary to learn about the history of Oslo. Tips: Wrap up warmly for when the boat gets going, wear waterproofs or sit away from the edge when it is raining (the water pours off the canopy and onto your lap), and arrive 30-45 mins early if you want a choice of seats.

The cruise provided a great opportunity to experience the fjord. The commentary throughout the cruise was insightful. The boat was comfortable even on a cool autumn day as blankets were available and hot beverages were available for purchase. You are sitting out in the open so you should dress accordingly. Washrooms are on board for those who may require them.

The pickup is punctual and the driver give us some inside about Norway. It’s great pleasure to meet up with nice tour guide Paul and Po (hopefully I spell the name correctly). It’s great trip throughout the whole journey for this private trip especially when you’re traveling with family and dragging with luggages. Overall great experience.

It was a nice experience.. informative and scenic. The seat arrangement could have been a bit better but overall it was all good!

It was great and the blankets were clutch. Would have loved even more audio commentary!
