What people are saying about Oslo

So we met our very cheerful and knowledgeable guide at the food court area in the art district. It was a great first introduction to Oslo, and we were able to see the river, the artist areas, local food, and the unique town area. Our tour guide was excellent, and went above and beyond. She even showed us a little extra at the wooden houses, after the tour was done. You'll eat plenty and walk alot. But it's a great tour and way to spend the afternoon.

Very friendly and helpful staff: I did this experience by myself and all the crew members took special care of me. The food is great, freshly caught and cooked simply but very tasty. Finally, the landscape is sublime. Great experience that I will most likely repeat, if I ever go back to Oslo.

Sitting on the second floor front of the wide window was the perfect spot, turning chairs to look everywhere. Beautifully view. Good brunch ans friendly personnel. The perfect way to discover the fjords in winter , staying inside or having the option to go out.

Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Fun way to see the city while learning more about its history and experiencing local tasty treats!

Friendly and helpful staff. Good food! Advisable and pleasant experience.
