This sightseeing tour of Norway will take you to all of the highlights you could hope for in Oslo. Tour striking locations like Vigeland Sculpture Park, take pictures at the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, and visit the impressive Open Air Museum.
Begin with a drive through the city center of Oslo on a coach as the local guide provides interesting information about the Norwegian capital and its major attractions. Take a guided walk through the Vigeland Sculpture Park on this tour, one of Norway's most visited attractions with more than 1 million visitors every year. This unique park is the life work of sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943), and features more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite, and cast iron.
Then, visit Holmenkollen Ski Jump, an imposing monument of steel and concrete. One of the first designer ski jumps ever built, it is recognized as the world's most modern ski jump. Enjoy a spectacular view of Oslo and the Oslo fjord from the platform at the top of the ski jump tower.
Entry to the Open Air Museum, Norway's largest museum of cultural history, and one of the oldest open air museums in the world. The museum features an iconic, world-famous stave church built in the 1200s, among many other artifacts of cultural significance. At the Open Air Museum, you'll have the opportunity to experience authentic Norwegian traditions, culture, and lifestyle.
The next stop on the tour is up to you. Gain admission to your choice of either the Fram Museum OR the Kon-Tiki Museum. The Fram Museum tells the story of Norwegian polar exploration, and is centered around the gem of its collection: the Fram. The Fram is a ship that was used in expeditions of the Arctic and Antarctic regions by Norwegian explorers. The Kon-Tiki Museum contains artifacts from the The Kon-Tiki expedition, a 1947 journey by raft across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the Polynesian islands, led by Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl.

We were a little disappoint that the pickup wasn't at the ship and that we had to walk a ways to City Hall to catch the bus. In the rain that would not have been fun. However, the excursion was well worth the wall and we did receive value for our dollars spend. The guild did an exceptional job at each of the stops and in between. The ear piece and received made it so much better to hear what was to be seen without having to be crunched in the middle of the crowd. We enjoyed the Oslo All Inclusive very much, and still have time for our own sight seeing. I would absolutely book future excursions through the Shore Excursions Group.

The tour gave a great overview of all that Oslo has to offer. Our guide, Elena, was a great ambassador for her city offering plenty of insight into the areas we went to see and giving tips of things to see and do after the tour was over. If you have just a day in Oslo this is good way to see the city.

The bus took us around the city and with the travel guide we had we knew how to best use our time seeing as much as we could. Purchasing trips ahead helped us plan each port. You could do it on your own but then you have to worry about exchange rates, which tour to choose, etc.
Bit of a hike from the cruise ship to where we met the coach but at least it wasn't raining that day. The guide was very informative. Best part was the outside museum Vigeland with all the fantastic sculptures. We liked the Viking ship museum but found it a bit crowded. The Antarctica expedition museum was really interesting. The ski jump stop was just ok but we weren't there for too long.
We saw things we have never had an opportunity to see.
