This was an excellent introduction to Oslo with varied sites and activities. Margaret was amazing, keeping us all moving in English and German. It was useful to have transport to the more outlying sites, such as the Ski jump, sculpture park and Fram and Folk Museums. If you want a more in depth visit, especially to the Folk Museum, you would need to go back to visit more. The Viking Museum is now closed to 2024, which I only realised on the tour. The fjord trip was ok, I’m glad I did it, but not much to see, and of course it was freezing so wrap up warm. There are drinks and snacks on board, commentary about a few things in English and I think Spanish. The start point is indicated on a tiny sign outside the toy shop, and the Google map takes you to the wrong place, so beware!

Andrea was the best guide I have ever come across. This was one of the most memorable days of my life. Thanks for all the memories Wandering Owl & Andrea! Hope to be back during Aurora season at the end of the year.

The tour was great. One gets to see many wonderful places, and hear about them from an amazing tour guide. I hope the weather will serve you like it served us! Enjoy wonderful Oslo!

It was the most exciting adventure ever. The staff were amazing and the location is breathtaking. I want everyone I know to experience this!

The combination of excursions in this activity is very worthwhile. The guide knew a lot to tell in a pleasant way.
