Our guide (Deinaa) was knowledgeable and gave us good time to explore the places on our own. The places of visit covered in this trip (Holmenkollen Ski park, Vigeland Sculpture park, Visit to Museums and panoramic view of the city with guide telling us about the place and history) was insightful and good experience. Very few tour options during winter and I am glad that I found this trip.

Our tour guide, Margrete, and coach driver, are awesome! Thank you for a great city tour! I learned a lot, better than roaming around myself without knowing the history, the stories, and the fantastic ride and views :) Happy Holidays :)

Very nice driver, excellent information all along the route through headphones in English and German, comfortable double-decker bus. The time spent at the ski jump and at the fabulous Vigeland park was just perfect!

Great tour. Fantastic guide and driver. Interesting and informative. Highly recommended to capture the main sights of Oslo in a short time, as we only had 1 full day there.

Overall, it was superb. I loved the ski jump and Vigeland sculpture park. Anita was a very entertaining tour guide.
