Really nice tour. Our guide had a lot of local knowledge and was able to swap between languages for everybody on board. The Fram museum was great. Very nice city and a must do tour for first timers.
Great guide, very good tour!
On a cold November day, the tour was not crowded and thus moving around was easy. The guide was very knowledgable and pleasant and offered a great deal of historical inofrmation punctuated by interesting anecdotes. As an over of Oslo, this tour is well worthwhile.
Excellent tour guide, interesting sites to visit
Driving around Oslo city was good but brief. Gave a good overview of the city with some commentary. Didn't stop at any of the locations. Then a bit of a hike up to to the Ski Jump which I found rushed and boring - the views weren't great as the surrounding trees blocked the view of Oslo but you do get to see over the fjords. Honestly could have skipped this completely and spend more time in Oslo. Vigeland Park is alright for a change and probably wouldnt walk there - the sculptures were interesting if not seen one seen them all. The Viking Ship Museum was the highlight by far - elegant and understated the ships spoke for themselves - recommended!. Next was the trup to the Polarship Fram Museum and Kon-Tiki Museum which are beside one another - to be honest well presented and interesting and the peninsula gives a good view over Oslo which I enjoyed.
Overall more time in Oslo, ignore the ski jump, the walk through of the park didn't really add much but the museums are a nice cultural touch. If you cant be bothered with public transport to get to the museums this is the next best thing - although leave some time to visit other parts of Oslo the Fort , downtown, palace and Opera House etc as you wont get the chance to take photos of these or Oslo city on the tour.
Comfortable bus however some of the window was obscured by that semi-transparent advertising/promotion decals on the side of the bus which although looking fancy from the outside - doesnt help to see the sights through as a passenger.
A wonderful way to take in interesting sights in a short, yet organized itinerary. The sculpture gardens were the highlight for me. Also enjoyed going to the ski jump area. The Viking Ship Museum was so crowded as there seemed to be NO crowd control that it was difficult to enjoy this as much as the other tour stops. Highly recommend this....price well worth it !!!! Don't miss the sculpture gardens...you will be blown away.
Liked the tour. Oslo is beautiful. It's just that we had to change the buses quite a few times within just a few hours. It was inconvenient
Very nice tour, would do it again.
it's very easy to find, it departs in the street beside the city hall. the guide had lots of information and was fluent in other languages than english. confortable bus and nice places to visit.
Absolutely wonderful tour.
Vigeland sculpture park was awesome. Viking and Kontiki museums both an insight to what lengths people took to travel across dangerous distant waters. But most impressive for me was the Fram museum displaying the ship used in exploration of the North pole and imagining what life must have been like for four years as you walk on board this huge ship. Our guide Sandra, brought passion and vision as she explains its history.
This tour was amazing!
Outstanding Guide and very enjoyable
Great value with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We enjoyed visiting all the sites but the Polarship and Viking Ship museums were the highlights.
We had a great time from day one!
The tour started promptly and the guide was pleasant and gave good information. Got a decent impression of the city. This tour would work well for those who have a limited time in Oslo as it gives a broad overview of the City and its environs.
The visit to the Ski jump was a waste of time. More time would have been appreciated at the Vigeland Park.
Great value saw all major attraction on this tour

This tour covers a lot of places! Like most of the other reviewers, I wish there was less time at the ski jump and more time at the Viking Ship Museum and the Flan Museum. But, you also get to see the sculpture park as well. Our tour guide was very good and the bus was comfortable and had good commentary. We had seen the Fjords in a tour in Bergen, Norway so we skipped that part. If you have already seen the fjords elsewhere, you should skip it as well.
Oslo is a beautiful city!
This was a fantastic tour and a great way to spend an afternoon. It was a perfect introduction to Oslo. I do have to add though, that although they say this is an easy bike ride, it covers quite a bit of distance and does require you to tackle a few rather steep hills. I would not recommend it if you are not at least moderately fit and have some biking experience.

Great way to see the city of Oslo. Fjord cruise was marginal but the rest of the trip was excellent.
