We went on the evening Fjord cruise. It was delightful. The views were spectacular and you got to see everything around the fjord. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The shrimp buffet was delicious. The only reason I took off a star was the fact that there was no option aside from shrimp, and my friend is allergic to... More

On a perfect spring day this cruise on the Oslo harbour was superb. Got great views of everything in and around Oslo and went at a very relaxing pace. The commentary was superb with all the information you needed and I would highly recommend it as a thing to do in Oslo. This is one of the most beautiful cities... More

We went on the 2hour fjord sightseeing boat tour. We paid around 260 NOK each which seemed reasonably for a 2 hour guided tour. However, once on the boat we noticed the bar was extremely expensive! We paid 160 NOK for 2 half pints of local beer (roughly £7/8 for a half!!!!!). A part from the on board drink prices... More

The boat is beautiful but the "tour" was quite boring. The commentary was minimal and focused on pointing out construction and what was going to be there in the future. The highlight of the trip was the float past the opera house and a view you couldn't get from a land tour. Other than that it was a slow float... More

We managed to get booked on an extra trip run on a lovely March day. The boat doesn't exactly speed along but that made it more relaxing and you could take in more. The views were lovely though some a little the same as others but what really made it was the staff. You were free to roam about the... More

It's definitely worth going on an Oslo fjord tour and seeing the area from the water -- there are a lot of interesting homes, small islands in the middle of the fjord with summer homes, etc. that make for lovely photos. The tour itself is only available in the winter Saturdays-Mondays at 10:30 and 13:00. If you take the 10:30... More

We did this two hour cruise yesterday and loved it's! It only runs twice a day sat, sun and mon in the winter, so turn up early to make sure you get on and get a good seat, our boat was busy!

This was the only tour I found available in November and I did go on it once before when I was in town, but it was worth the repeat. According to the brochure it operates year round. In the colder months it only operates on Saturdays and Sundays, twice a day at 10:30 and again at 1 PM. The 2... More

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...
