Great fun!

This was my first time in Oslo and I thought the cycling tour would be a great way to see the city, what I didn't bargain on was the amount of snow! I turned out to be the only person on the tour as the weather was so bad and it's a fairly new activity so I essentially got a private tour! Josh from Viking Biking was really friendly and funny and knew his stuff about the city. He gave me pretty free rein about where I wanted to go and what I wanted to see. I even wanted a hot chocolate at one point so we went to a really cool food market. He was also really happy to take pics and stop whenever I wanted to admire the views! Highly recommend this activity, and don't worry about the snow, the winter tyres are really good - I was convinced I would fall off before we started but didn't!!!

Josh was an amazing guide. Extremely upbeat, made the bike tour through admittedly awful weather (~0c and raining!) seem like a really fun time. He was full of anecdotes of Oslo both current and past - gave us a great feel for the city. I would definitely come back for another tour - in sunshine if possible!

It was an amazing sightseeing tour , something different than just walking around. The tour guide was really nice and all in all I would recommend this tour to anyone

The bike ride is really worth the money. You see oslo in a completely different way. The guide tells you all the ins and outs

very rewarding and in formative, enjoyed snow riding, much easier than walking. Josh was great fun.
