That's a great way to see Oslo. Our guide Pavel was very patient as it was virtially my first escooter ride. On the way learnt a lot about the city as he was the right man in the right place, very knowledgeable, extremely friendly and helpful, you could see he liked what he was doing. I'm glad such trips are back, definitely recommended:)

It was only me and the tour guide, so it was extra special to get into deeper conversation on Norwegian Christmas traditions. The guide was excellent, gave lots of information on history or places in general, also could show me a lot of nice instagram-worthy places. All in all I can really recommend this tour!

The tour was really great! Our guide Marcus took a lot of time, even more than the specified 2.5 hours, and gave us a really good first impression of Oslo. He even gave us tips for good restaurants and other highlights, thanks for that!

This was the perfect way to start my trip in Oslo! I got to see so much and the guide was very passionate about the city and its history.

Excellent opportunity to know famous points of the city and feel the magic of Christmas. Congratulations to Marcos (guide).
