This street tour was amazing. We met our guide Katrina and straight away she was accommodating and easy to talk to. While we were on our tour she told us about where we were and the history and culture of Oslo’s street food scene and the areas we were in. The food we got to try were all super tasty!! Waffles, cocoa, a beautiful street food favourite hotdog. Would highly recommend as I really enjoyed it. Was a wonderful experience :)

Great tour thanks to the guide Monica!

In general, I would not be very impressed, but the friendly and sweet guide Monica was very accessible and with emotion talked about the places where we were. Unfortunately, harsh daylight made it difficult to take good pictures, but this does not apply to excursions.

It was overwhelming to be surrounded by so much beautiful architecture and art and nature, all while hearing the history of what you were seeing. Would definitely recommend, and will surely go see the places featured in the tour again!

Entertaining & interesting

Exciting tour through Gronerlokka with great information about the neighborhood from our guide Sandra. There is something for everyone: history from old Oslo to modern urban development. I can recommend the tour.

Little historical data, but all the more about life in Oslo. Great city, great guide.
