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.
On time and offered the best of Oslo in the short amount of time that we had. Tour guide was well versed in all three venues that we visited. Had ample time to really see and learn about them. Very reasonably priced.
Would recommend for anyone with limited time in Oslo
Administration was excellent.
Tour guide was first rate - lots of very interesting information and a very approachable manner.
Good venues - not too many sites visited which meant you could really have a good look around.
Our guide Maria was excellent as she provided a clear commentary and took the tour at an appropriate pace. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you. Janet Matthews
very good selection and definitely made the most out of it given my time constraint.
Our guide was excellent...only wished we could have had a little more time in Vigeland Sculpture Park! Viator's customer service was excellent as well.....our ship was held up in getting port clearance and we were close to missing the tour. I called the local number that Viator provided and the young lady communicated back and forth between us and the tour guide until we were able to finally make the tour.
The tour was a great way to see the highlights of Oslo in a few short hours. The guide's English was very easily understood and I believe she followed up each English highlight once again in German. I thought the time spent in the Viggeland Scuplture Park could have been a touch longer and the time spent in the Viking Museum a touch shorter.
I had a few hours before flying out, so booked this tour, very worthwhile. The tour lasted 3.5 hours - bus up and ferry back (June is summer, hence ferry back). The tour was flexible - due to rain, we changed schedule and went to the Ski Jump before the sculpture park. We had about 30 mins at each site. Enough time at the Viking Ship Museum as most of the individual items were described in Norwegian language - so listening to the guide at the beginning is important. Time at Ski Jump was just enough to get to the bottom of the jump for the best shot, although the bus would stop there for half a minute to let you take photos onboard; you could choose to only walk to the middle layer to take photos upwards and downwards; I went to the bottom of the jump and just passed the chapel and took photos, no time to get in. Sculpture Park was good, you must follow the guide to understand the meaning of the main works. There was no time to do our own walk-around in the park - one could spend whole day there, it's a beautiful park.
Oslo is a fun place. it blends the old with an edgy modern feel. The highlights of the tour are the sculpture park which is amazing and the Viking Museum. Even though we went in the middle of winter and the weather was dreadful the tour still had plenty to offer. If you find yourself in Oslo then go on this tour.
Our guide was very organized and informative. This is exactly what we were looking for and got a good taste of Oslo.
She also spoke multiple languages fluently and was very helpful.
The bus driver was so helpful working out our emailed confirmation ticket to join the tour as well as safe driving skills. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The city tour as well as the museums that we visited were very interesting and all for a very reasonable price.
The tour was fabulous! Agnes, our guide, was extremely knowledgable and organized. I was impressed that she spoke in three languages--Norwegian, German and English--all flawlessly. The sights were superb. I loved Oslo!
Very informative guide and a good way of getting an overview of Oslo. Really enjoyed this trip.
Linda, our guide thru Gamla Stan was wonderful. She told us so many interesting things about the old city, its founding; took us to some very special and out of the way sites that most tourists would not discover. We ended the tour at the awesome Vasa museum and then stayed on that island to explore the Scansin Folk Village on our own. We had a great time!
Fantastic tour. It was a great way of seeing so much of Oslo in a short time.
Very full, busy day. This was a day of national tragedy and the guide handled it well.

excellent excursion. The guides were excellent. Highly recommended especially when the time you will stay in Oslo is limited

Excellent tour and tour guide. 5 hours is about the right time for a day. The only suggestion is for Viator to change the directions for meeting at the beginning of the tour. It states to meet in front of the City Hall. Actually you meet down at the docks on pier 5. Check in with the small booth at Pier 3 that offers tours.
