Drove through the city with narration up to the world championship ski jump. The day we were there was the 50th wedding anniversary of the King and Queen so some streets were blocked off for the official entourage traveling from the palace to the church. Good views of the harbor from up high. Guided walking tour through Vigeland Sculpture park engenders appreciation for the life-long artistic endeavors of Mr. Vigeland. Best part of the tour for us were the tours of the Norwegian Viking and Kon Tiki Museums. Very historic and interesting.

Tour was good but a bit rushed at stops because our time in port was short. Guide was knowledgeable and tried to give us an overview of life in Norway. Beautiful city.

The tour started exactly at the place indicated in the brochure. The guide was excellent, friendly and accommodating. Good value for the excursion. Will recommend as an alternative to the excursions provided by the cruise line.

Good tour combining an Oslo land tour with the boat tour. We could easily walk from our ship to City Hall to pick up the tour bus. The pick up instructions could have been a bit clearer that the pick up point was to the far SIDE of City Hall versus the front
