Fast paced trip, lots of information in a short period of time. I was able to absorb it all and keep up. However, if you want to take your time and enjoy things more. This might not be the tour for you.

My girlfriend and I had a lovely experience. The tour was amazing, and all the places they took us to see and walk was incredible.

It is a great thing to have during your visit to Oslo and saves a huge amount of time and money—really helped make the trip!

I recommend the Oslo Pass. Public transport works very well and it's easy to get around the town.

Very useful for a 2 day trip to Oslo especially if this is your first time there
