Nice cruise through some of the islands. Took the trip in early May. Sadly was a cloudy and rainy day. But definitely recommended for a sunny day. Awesome staff and guide too.
The boat was impressive and crew members helpful. The tour was a recording and we were told the person that usually does the tour was unavailable. They mentioned that he would have given more details. Even so, we really enjoyed it.
Was easy to exchange for a tour ticket at the docks from online reservation printed out at home before I left.
Tour was beautiful but is a tour of the bay not spectacular fjords.It was a pleasant few hours . Making the reservation with Viator was very easy.
We got to see some different areas of Oslo and experience how the fjords are connected as well as affected by the environment. It was cold enough that one section of the fjord was frozen over so a different path was taken to continue the cruise. The cruise line was great and very accommodating!
Booking on-line ahead of time is very convenient. The masted ship was lovely and very comfortable. Stories and explanations were fun and informative.
If you are interested in seeing the fjords, it's a fine boat ride. Informative but not engaging and a little long.
Our day in Oslo was cold and rainy but none the less, we had booked a fjords boat cruise online before the trip so we did take it. Although the crew were friendly, the commentary was limited and the rain and fog made it pretty difficult to see most of the scenery. For much of the cruise we had cold raining pouring in on us. Luckily the boat did provide blankets although we were still cold. Overall not a super value.
I was really expecting great things from this tour as every Viator tour has been amazing for me so far. However, it was alright, not brilliant - our Italian English speaking guide didn't have much to say about the fjords, so not a very informative or interesting tour. Those of us on the upper deck couldn't really hear her very well when she did speak every fifteen minutes or so, but she made no effort to include us or get up on the upper deck a few times. The natural landscape was beautiful though which made up for it, as did the plentiful supply of blankets which kept us warm in very blustery conditions!
