What You Can Expect
Travel onward to Bygdøy Peninsula, the rural city neighborhood where three top Oslo ship museums are found: the Viking Ship Museum, Polarship Fram Museum and Kon-Tiki Museum. Explore each one on a tour, and learn about Norwegian Viking voyages, 19th-century polar expeditions and the intrepid Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl who sailed from Peru to Polynesia aboard the Kon-Tiki raft. A lunch break at the Polarship Fram Museum’s on-site cafe is factored in to your visit. All food and drinks are at your own expense.
After your visit to Kon-Tiki Museum return to the start point where your city tour finishes. Your guide will then take you on a 5-minute walk to the pier, where you will board your sightseeing cruise boat. Admire the sights of the fjord from the water, passing alongside idyllic bays while listening to your guide talk about Oslo Fjord. Take a seat in the covered area of the boat, or bask in the sunshine if the weather is warm. The city’s scenic gem, the fjord is home to a number of islands that each boast individual landmarks and history. Hear of the kayaking, canoeing and fishing that takes place around Oslo Fjord, and see vacation homes dotted around the islands.
Having enjoyed two hours of cruising around the waters of Oslo, return to the start point near Oslo City Hall and step back onto dry land where your combo tour finishes.
Very thorough trip well narrated by our tip guide: Sandra.
The conditions in Oslo during the trip was extremely hot unlike the typical Oslo summer and the AC in the bus was not adequate. Almost everyone in our bus was comfortable. Besides this, the trip was awesome and very informative gave us a sense of things we should go and spend some extra time during the visit.
The tour was amazing!! The guide was very nice and knowledgeable! The bus was amazing and was only 3 weeks old! The tour around the city shows you the beauty of the city! I would recommend this to people who have only one day since it covers the most important spots!
Very efficient tour.
Tehokkaasti rakennettu retki, joka näytti seitsemässä tunnissa Oslosta kaiken oleellisen.
We got to see all the main sights in one day! Tour was great and guide was fantastic xxx
First time to Oslo and the tour provided a variety of sights to see. The bus was comfortable and in great condition, good air conditioning too. The tour kept on schedule, no delays. The guide for the tour was very educated about all the sights we visited. She was always upbeat and kept the group involved and moving along. Would recommend the full day tour unless you'd rather skip the boat cruise. Everything went very well.
Everything happened as planned; the tour started at the right time, the adrees was easy to find, the guide came some minutes earlier in order to collect the people; we visited all expected points with enough time for photos, to hear the explanation and I want to make a special eulogy to our guide, miss Maria, who was very patient with people, specialy with who could not understand english quickly, so she repeated many times the descriptions about the place we werw visiting, so she made more than regular guides. To finalize, I declare that Viator is my favorite office for my next trip. Congratulations.
Perfect tour for a city break
Highly recommended. This tour was excellent, covering all the popular sites around Oslo over five engrossing hours, finishing up with a leisurely two hour cruise of the beautiful Oslo Fjord. The tour guide was informative and very efficient, ensuring everything ran on time. Just a slight negative. The first two hours of the tour was bilingual, and some of the Norwegian commentary seemed to be missed out in English. Otherwise, a very enjoyable and memorable day.
The tour is really good, the bus is comfortable and there is a lot of explanation during the trip. You cover a lot in one day and yet you dont feel that tired.
Overall a good tour. The Oslo Fjord Cruise was a real let-down. I recommend taking the version of the tour that includes everything but the fjord cruise - it was simply a boat ride up and down the river in Oslo and the scenery was no different than what you can see from the shore. The time at the museums is perfect - just enough to get the jist of it and see the highlights. I recommend Viator make the tour 30 minutes longer and spend more time at the ski jump and Vigeland Park those stops were extremely rushed, especially considering it was first stop with a bathroom so much of the time was spent in line. The ski jump and Vigeland Park are both incredible - I wish we'd had more time to take a breath and be able to look around. So if you just have 1 day and want to see the highlights as fast as you can, this is a great tour. The guide was the biggest plus - she was incredibly knowledgeable and very sweet!
