It was a good choice to know Oslo, in three hours you can know the most important and attractive point of the city, pedaling and making a good exercise. The city is almost flat so is easier and friendly to move. Forget to take a bus or a tour, this it’s a perfect way to know Oslo!

Fantastic!

We loved this bike tour. A fun way to see all the major sites but using scenic routes. Much better than a bus, and so much easier and faster than on foot. Was a little concerned about biking on busy city streets, but when we were on streets at all, we took quiet side streets. Loved all of it!

Great first impression of Oslo city

The guides were very enthusiastic and gave interesting information about Oslo. They separated the big group of 36 people into 3 groups which was great. The weather was perfect and the tour was nice. We had time to look around when we stopped at the highlights of Oslo city and the guide told us some interesting facts as well. In my opinion the tour wasn’t exhausting at all, it was good. I have been told the biking tour is about 10km, which is perfect. Thanks guys! I had a great afternoon while I was in Oslo.
