Oslo City Tour was fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Unfortunately a thunderstorm hit the city round noon and it just bucketed down causing traffic delays and it was way too wet to do the cruise. We were fine with that as it was only one day rain during our 6 weeks holiday. Oslo is a beautiful city.

A great tour of Oslo. It was amazing to see the fjords from the boat ride. The museum part was quite tight. Only 5-10 minutes time per museum to walk free without guide so someday we will have to go to the museums on our own with more time. Guide Veronica(?) was a professional. Excellent knowledge from her all the time.
Holmenkollen wasn't that breathtaking during summer, but the view from the mountain to the valley where Oslo is situated was amazing!

Guide was a bit dull. Not much interaction with tourists.

Tour was good in general. Some of the places were very interesting but gave very short time at Sculpture Park which was the best place, There was no need to spend so much time at Viking Museum, not much to see.. The worst thing about the tour was that I did not get to know the exact place from where the tour was to start before I left USA.It was mentioned in the mail that tour will start from the Pier near City hall. I went to the Information office in Oslo the previous day to find the exact location which I was told at City hall. I reached City hall at 9.45 am and was waiting forthe bus. The bus was not to be seen till 10.10 am. Thinking it may start from Pier I went to the pier, it was not there. I took two round to City hall and enqured with every Bus driver about Viator Tour,nobody knew about the tour but everyone including the Tourist Information Centre told me that all buses start from City hall.Finally the bus came at 10.30am at City Hall. It is suggested that correct information be given to everyone. There was one more couple searching for this bus.

I enjoyed the sights very much. The Viking Museum was terrific! Also enjoyed the Sculpture Garden, and the ski jump. The young woman who was our guide was excellent, and I regret not knowing she was leaving the bus so that I could thank her in person. The driver kindly took me to the bus terminal so I could return to the airport for my next flight. Great day!

The tour was OK. When the description reads "stop" by the Holmekollen Ski Jump, that is what is was, only 25 minutes there, not enough time to enjoy all that there is to see, especially when there are participants jumping. When we got to the Kon-Tiki Museum we were given tickets to cross over to City Hall on a ferry and did not get to participate in the Kon-Tiki tour, was told that the Selected Tour did not include the Kon-Tiki, quite disappointing. Our guide had to translate in 4 different languages leaving no time for questions. Would suggest that your tour guides be limited to a couple of languages per bus so that the tour guide has more time to devote to the paying customers.

OK tour. Directions on where to begin tour were not clear. Tour was in multiple languages and somewhat hard to follow. Tour was not exactly as listed - had to pay $10 extra per person on site to get tour advertised.
