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.

What a fun experience! We (family of 3 adults) booked the private e-scooter city tour and 2 of us never rode an e-scooter! Took minutes to learn and we were off traveling around the easy roads of Oslo with a wonderful guide who took us to all the places you read about.

The ride was really cool! The guide managed to convey to me the traditions and customs of this beautiful people. She was very knowledgeable about both the little gems of the city and the history.
