What You Can Expect

All-Inclusive Oslo City Tour: Viking Ship Museum, Vigeland Park, Polarship and Fram Museum or Kon-Tiki Museum

See Vigeland Park on your Oslo city tour

Greet your knowledgeable guide at a central Oslo location and climb aboard a luxurious coach destined for the city’s top sights. Relax as you listen to captivating commentary and cruise past iconic sights like Frogland Park, home to an impressive collection of sculptures by Norweigan artist, Gustav Vigeland. Gaze at more than 200 granite and bronze statues before continuing onto the world-renowned Holmenkollen Ski Jump. 

Capture photographs of the vertiginous slope, used in the 1952 Winter Olympics, and absorb sweeping vistas of Oslo from this vertiginous vantage point. Travel onward to Bygdøy Peninsula, a rustic neighbourhood home to some of Norway’s most popular attractions; tour the Viking Ship Museum to see perfectly preserved Viking ships and to delve into the country’s fascinating past.

A really interesting day. The Oslo city tour was drive-by only, but lots of information was given and the city is small enough to be able to go back to any places that warrant further investigation after this tour. The ski jump stop was a good break and had a gift shop and museum for those so inclined. The walk through Vigeland Park to see the sculptures was very worthwhile, and the Polarship Fram and Viking Ship Museums were well worth the effort. We had a guided tour then free time in each to further explore. Other commitments prevented me upgrading to include the boat tour this day, but I took it another day and would recommend it as well.

We met our very informative guide at City Hall to be told it was -16 degrees in Oslo that morning. Certainly was chilly waiting for the tour coach to arrive,however it was lovely and warm once we were on board. She was a delightful lady who knew all the history of the sights we visited. All venues were very interesting and well worth seeing. Some were a little rushed due to time constraints which is understandable due to our busy itinerary on the day.

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 value with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We enjoyed visiting all the sites but the Polarship and Viking Ship museums were the highlights.

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!
