This tour combined a sampling of delicious traditional Norwegian food and drink and a visit to Mathallen market with a pleasant walk through Oslo where we learned a bit of local history and culture. Ivana does a great job. One of our favorite food tours, and we have done many over the years. Highly recommended!

Fabulous tour!

We loved our day with Minji on the food tour! The five food stops covered a broad range of food in Oslo. We particularly loved our first stop, which was at a lunch restaurant. We were served a substantial portion of elk, moose, reindeer, fish, and local vegetables. Minji was delightful and we truly enjoyed getting to know her. Minji was delightful and we truly enjoyed getting to know her. We highly recommend this tour!

The individual locations were very high quality in terms of food and drink. It was a completely successful tour for us which we will remember for a long time thanks to Freddy
