Wow. This office was very helpful in helping us plan our visit to Stavanger. Maps and brochures covered everything of interest to us. They sold tickets for one of the delightful fjord trips. When we returned from the ferry trip, we headed for the Norwegian Petroleum Museum, on the other side of the harbor.

When we got to the museum, we discovered a camera was missing. We raced back to the ferry terminal, but the ferry had left. We checked in with the Tourist Office, just in case we had dropped the camera after the ferry ride, and someone picked it up and returned it. There was no camera, and the clerk tried unsuccessfully to reach the ferry boat. He then suggested we visit the boat company's office, located on the other side of the harbor.

We walked in and hadn't gotten very far in describing we lost our camera, when the clerk left for a second and returned with a bag. She proceeded to pull out our camera, with a "Is this yours?" Wow. A cleanup crew spotted the camera on the boat, walked across the harbor and turned it in. Thanks, everyone involved.

We had a wonderful experience at this office. They have pleasant and most importantly knowledge employees with plenty of materials and brochures to help plan your trip. We spoke to Jamila who took her time and provided all information necessary to plan our day in Stavanger.

Very difficult to get any information and in the end we found our hotel was more approachable. Also locals gave fantastic tips such as go to the ferry terminal and use all the local ferries one after the other for a tour of the real Norway. Get as high as you can and so very inexpensive.

A small office but the staff are knowledgeable. Be aware maps of the location (pre 2017) show location near Cathederal.To acomodate Cruise Ships the office has been relocated to the harbour near to the Maritime Museum - Old Town.

I was in Stavanger some weeks ago with some friends. We just had one weekend and going to the Tourism Office was the best thing we did. We met there Cristina and she not only gave us a lot of recommendations but she also shared with us her passion for such an amazing country. Thanks to her we learnt a lot and we had such an incredible weekend.
If you plan to go to Stavanger, don't doubt in stopping by the tourism office and asking for Crisitina! She will show you around!

We went on a friend trip to Stavanger without really knowing much about our destination. We went in the tourist office were we were welcomed with free wifi, and a very friendly service. We met Cristina that happily helped is with all our doubts and questions. She went above and beyond giving us information, maps, and even was so helpful that at their lunch hour walked around with us and showed us around. She also gave us some of the track ideas like looking at the wonderful street art at Stavanger! We really couldn't be more delighted by her incredible service! Overall the best export ends I've had at an information center anywhere in the world! I recommend if you go to Stavanger, ask for everything and find Cristina as she is such a wonderful help!

I have travelled a lot and so far, Norway has been one of the most amazing countries I have ever seen. We went on a weekend with a couple of friends and we had the time of our lives. We met an amazing tour guide named Cristina that went above and beyond to make us learn and enjoy the city of Stavanger in every way possible. She took us to different places around and show us how beautiful this city is and everything it has to offer. We really suggest people to visit the information office in the city center and ask for Cristina. She will help you and give you the best tips on how to get around.

Thank you Cristina for everything and thank you Stavanger for an amazing holiday!

We came from a cruise ship and asked for information for a one day visit.
We received a good recommendation for a 3 hours cruise to the Lysefjord and the Pulpit Rock that was wonderful.
Also received help to find a special item we needed in the city.
Thanks Camilla !

Skilled people work here, you get good guidance. Many brochures and information in several languages about sights and things to do in the region.
The place also has a toilet that tourists can use.
But 1 public toilet in Stavanger? With thousands of tourists toilet facilities and amenities should be better.
I mean those who work on the site are wonderful - but as a tourist town it is embarrassing to only be able to show 1 toilet, when tourists ask us locals about the nearest toilet.
