Get there early, expect lots of shrimps
We arrived 20 minutes early and the boat was nearly full. It is open seating, so prepare to share small benches wit

Captain and crew were extremely nice. We were lucky because it was a gorgeous day and we got the best seat on the boat - up front, on a big box under the front mast. I heard others complaining because the boat was packed and most people were sitting on wooden picnic tables very close together.

I think it’s good for the price. You have to have a positive mind set to have a good time - no matter what. If the weather was cold, I would not go. There are much newer ships around that have big indoor spaces if you want to pay for it.

Very nice trip around the fjord, helped understand where things were located within Oslo which was beneficial when walking around on other days.
Getting onto the boats was a bit chaotic; some tables were reserved but then suddenly weren't reserved. There was two boats going at once which was only announced after a large queue had formed at one boat which led to people rushing to the second boat.
There is pre-recorded audio, which has some long periods of silence, but I don't think you go on the trip for the commentary. You go for the views and experience.
We went on a very hot day, and even then it was a bit blustery and cold out in the fjord. Can only recommend wrapping up warm if you go on a colder day.

Reading this back, it sounds more negative than I intended.
The tour was a really good way to spend 2 hours, I would have no issue going back just some things to be aware of :)

Sailing at slow pace in the Oslo fjord with a service-minded crew was very relaxing after 3 intense days of exploring the City, museums, beach and restaurants. Departure 10h30, enough seating space for everyone, return on time 12h25. Accessible to people with limited mobility (e.g. crutches). Comments on fjord's history and settings are easy-access for everyone. Music is dicrete. To revommend for a mini break in your ecthic holiday...

It was a beautiful day for a cruise, the fjord was like a mill pond but there was still a chill so wear something warm or bring a jacket. Try and sit on the left (port) side of the boat as you’ll get a better view.

The commentary was interesting but there were long periods of silence which perhaps could have been padded out.

The food and drink aboard is very expensive. I was shocked to pay 48NK for instant coffee from a thermos ( despite the offer of a free refill) which is fully priced!

Nice to do if you have a few spare hours and the weather is good.

The tour left from a dock next to a very popular local hangout area. Walked to it from the hotel in less than 15 minutes.
The narration itself was excellent. I like how the boat got close to the various locations.
My only issue is that the boat looked a little bit too old and weathered.

Also I needed to use the restroom, at the terminal building I was denied, with the staffer at the building saying it wasn't for the public's use. However, as I was boarding the boat the staffer from the building ran over and apologized, because he didn't realize I was a customer. I give him credit for the correction.

With that side I will move the rating to above average.

Really fun experience! The boat’s captain was honestly the coolest Norwegian grandpa ever and he added so much to the whole thing. The boat was beautiful and the drinks (which can be purchased on board) were great. The only reason I give 4/5 stars is that I wish there was more “guiding” on the boat - I was hoping to learn more than I did. But still, great experience and definitely recommend

Not organized properly. Made us wait in the line and then took 20 people in front of the line. We waited for 30 minutes and they just walked in. There is limited space on board and they reserve tables for their lunch serving. They took "special groups" in front. You have to sit with strangers arm to arm. No comfort, not recommended.

I reached out to tour operators to see if this was going to be cancelled. There was a severe thunderstorm that started a few minutes before the tour was to start that included lightening. The harbor was encased with fog. We got within about 1/8 mile of the pier and then took cover. We never saw a ship go out nor saw one return 2 hours later.
I never received a return phone call or text. We lost our reservation money. If the tour went out, the guests would have been soaked with rain, in danger of lightening, and not had very good visibility due to fog.

I love being on the water, so I was pretty excited about this. The audio for the commentary was pretty low, but I liked hearing some information about the islands and Oslo.

That being said two hours was too long for me, and an hour would have been enough. Specially since the seats on board are very uncomfortable, pretty much just crates with no back support that you sit on or unsteady garden chairs, and if the tour is booked you are pretty crammed together.

The weather could have been better (obviously not the fault of the cruise). Overall pretty good, but just a bit too long for me.

Don't regret going, but not something I would sign up for again.

Less than ten hours after arriving in Oslo, we started off with this two-hour cruise and it was perfect! It gives an excellent intro to Oslo and the main sites before heading out into the fjord to see the many islands where locals have summer houses. I was expecting to go in one of those canal cruisers like you see all over Amsterdam so I was thrilled when we had a beautiful (although a bit chilly) April morning and we boarded an refurbished old fishing boat that just oozed character. They have a narrative in English that gave a little bit of information and their staff had answers to the couple of questions I had. If it is on the cooler side the day you cruise, I would suggest you sit on the main deck - I ventured up on the poop deck in the back and the wind was brutal up there when we were out on the fjord (for ME, it would not have been worth the better visual perspective from up on top).
