What people are saying about Holmenkollen

Great Tour to see all relevant sights of Oslo. A good start to get an overview of the town. The included museums and the travel to Holmenkollen were also great, we had beautiful weather.

Great guide to major attractions in Oslo. The cost is practically the same as if you bought venue tickets and bus tickets yourself. So might as well do it on a luxury bus with a guide!
