Last time we were here it poured and was icy cold. We took a boat tour then huddled beneath plastic sheeting, hardly seeing a thing. Today we took the same sort of trip with much better results. The morning clouds gradually gave way to sunshine, but I was glad that I brought a hat, mittens, and parka. We couldnt tell the permanent homes from the summer homes, but were left with the impression that every Oslo family must own a boat. Were not sure when it was summer here, but it certainly is over now. We cant imagine going swimming here. Many of the newer homes conformed to a paint color code - the same shades of yellow, red, green and blue are interspersed to a cheery effect. Older homes are white, the color that was fashionable at the time they were built. One house with Greek columns out front and a mansion-y look stuck out like a sore thumb. Its owner had visited Italy and loved the villa look so much he bought one of his own here. While some homes were larger than others, most had a conservative, functional look. The Norwegians are not an ostentatious people.
The excursion was a short walk from the berth where our cruise ship was docked. It was easy to exchange the Viator voucher for a ticket, but this time of year, we could have just walked on.

Tour was excellent . The cruise left on time and arrived back on time as well. The ship was a beautiful old schooner and added charm to the delightful scenery .The recorded guide was informative and knowledgeable , pointing out both highlights and some obscure point of interest. Scenery was beautiful and ride comfortable although a bi chilly on this day . Blankets were provided mercifully and all I all I would recommend this couple of hours in this grand city

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.
