Although they offer a variety of attractive looking tour options we were only able to avail of the ferry/taxi ride to the Bygdoy peninsula. Buy your tickets, as it advertises, from the kiosk rather than on the boat because the cost is 33% less at 40NOKs v 60NOKs. The boat is comfortable enough for the short trip and it left... More

I think I have been spoilt by some of the other fjiord trips I have done. I think this tour would be better named 'Oslo by water'. The guide did explain what the meaning of the word fjiord meant but even so I do not think it is aptly named. If you are going to take the boat to the... More

Never leave Oslo without doing this tour. We pre booked on line before arriving here. We sat on the TOP of the boat, right side upon entering to get a good view. It is chilly in the middle of the tour and it would be nice to get some hot chocolate drink from the boat.

I was looking for something special to enjoy Oslo fjords and this made my end of the day! Leaving around 7pm from the main harbour it takes 3 hours An incredible blues band perfectly matched with the itinerary, until the sundown colors appears and everything got magic. It costs around 50€ per person, but it's worth it, considering that fresh... More

The two of us took the 2 hours cruise with Batservice Sightseeing tour. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed the sights of Oslo fjords. Great commentary by this very young and lovely guy. Easy on the eye too :-D which made the cruise even more enjoyable.

The Oslo fjord isn't a breathtaking sight, but the Batservice Sightseeing crew makes it fun, interesting, and amusing. We were very comfortable for the 2 hour trip and were able to purchase snacks along the way if needed. We particularly enjoyed the narration and interesting historical information provided by the guide. Thanks to the guide, I knew how to find... More

Great staff, fun activity, and beautiful scenery. I was worried it would be cold, but they had sheepskin cover ups and blankets. I got by with a blanket and was not the least bit cold.

The converted sail boat is a little bit tacky, but it does the job well. We did the fjord cruise that runs along the city centre with commentary before heading out to the more picturesque islands. The boat is covered in tables and rickety chairs and they will sell literally every ticket, which can get a bit awkward at the... More
