The best walk guided tour
Nov. 2019
A 2 hour walking guided tour at below freezing temperatures could have easily been a non so pleasant activity, but Erland, our guide made it fun and entertaining.
He was able to provide historic information in such an engaging way, and in two hours managed to give us all what we needed to know about this lovely city.
Totally recommendable.Hopefully you will be lucky enough to have Erland as a guide.

Erland our guide was amazing. Great sense of humour and so interesting. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.....it was amazing walking around the fortress at night. We had no cash so feel bad we didn't leave Erland a tip. He was brilliant.

Oslo City Walk
Sep. 2019 • Friends
We had a very enjoyable and informative tour through the heart of Oslo, from the new Opera through downtown and around the medieval Akershus to the historic Stortinget, with lots more along the way. Our guide, Erlend, a native, was full of energy and had stories about the old and the new Oslo, bringing both history and current events to life for visitors to his ever-changing city. He brought a sense of humor, a thoughtful perspective, and some hospitality, looking after the comfort of each individual. Nice job - made my day!

An outstanding introduction to Oslo
Jul. 2019 • Solo
I was in Oslo for less than 24 hours and felt that a walking tour starting at the Tourist Information Centre would be a good introduction to Oslo. It really was. The guide was very knowledgeable and she made the tour really interesting. We numberered around 15 and the price was far lower than many of the competition.

We started in the area around the splendid Opera House and looked at Oslo's interesting urban renovation including the ugly Munch Gallery.

We then went to the Akersius Fortess and worked our way up to Karl Johans Gate and such important buildings as the Parliament and the National Theatre. We ended at the excellent Royal Palace. All in all, I got a good feel for Oslo...at a reasonable price...from an excellent guide, who spoke excellent English
