spending only 2 days in Oslo, we decided to go for a short sightseeing tour in the fjord in the morning. there are different options, however if you're on a tight schedule like we were, then I'd definitely recommend that.. the awesome weather made us enjoy the nice landscape and the tiny colourful houses by the fjord. make sure you...

This is a must do for a first visit to Norway. Good commentary explaining things, an insight into the Norwegian way of life and of course wonderful scenery.

This is an excellent way to spend two hours on the sea. The service was great. Great sights and the sea wind blowing through your hair. If you want two relaxing hours I recommend the Oslo Fjord sightseeing.

Think carefully before embarking on the 2 hour Oslo Fjord sightseeing tour. The boat itself is functional - it floats, it has seats, an engine, gets you from A to B etc - but 'fairly dated' springs to mind when describing it further and we were packed in tightly so personal comfort was not exactly optimal ! Critically, there are... More

Saw the brochure for the hop on - hop off in our apartment. Looked reasonably priced compared to other trips. Got down to the harbour around 13:00 and took the last trip around. Although we couldn't get off it was a great sail around the islands and Oslo to get a general idea of where things are and a bit... More

Oslo fjord is beautiful and this boat trip gives a lovely introduction to it. There isn't a great deal of commentary but who needs it when there's so much beauty to enjoy. The huge skies with amazing cloud formations and the little islands with their colourful houses don't need a narration. Just loved the peace and beauty.

My friends and I went on this tour on a really nice sunny day. It was a great way to spend the afternoon as the water was perfect. Although we did learn some interesting facts about the monuments, buildings, and islands around Oslo we felt that there could have been more information given as a lot of time was spent... More
