I missed this tour because I could not find the bus stop. I asked the locals but nobody knew where exactly the plaza is. Perhaps it would be good to provide a map versus instructions.
Everything we needed and nothing we didn't!
This was an excellent introduction to the sights of Oslo. The tour was very well run and we were well looked after by our lovely guide Anne-Grethe. First we were driven around Oslo town and given lots of interesting information about the buildings. Then we drove to the Ski jump and had 25minutes to get out and look around. As we drove to the next stop Anne-Grethe talked about the Norwegian culture and how Norwegians live today with plenty of humour thrown in. We got out and were taken through Vigeland park and introduced to some of the statues by our guide, then back in the bus to our starting point. This was really only a brief introduction. If you want to spend time at the sights choose a hop on- hop off bus. This was just the right length tour for us as we only had two days in Oslo.
First 45 minutes of tour were completely silent from tour guide. Not a single word and I'm not exaggerating as I looked at the clock on the bus. Drove around the downtown area but seemingly without much purpose. First stop was the ski jump. Sadly, all the bus tours are kept inside a fenced area so we could not walk up the jump, or down to the winter activities area which had a great biathlon going on. Wothless and pointless. The back on the bus for another totally silent drive to Vigeland Park. Our guide spoke in three languages, but her stops were short and not that informative. Then back to our pickup location with the only words being the tour is over. If you are expecting a tour that routes you to interesting places with ongoing narrative on history, relevance, etc., you can forget this one as you won't get it here. A total waste of . And a word on Oslo...much more depressing looking than I had hoped...think of a Nordic version of Detroit.
Good tour but a little more walking than we'd anticipated as my husband has arthritis. You can stay on the bus however whilst others walk around the sculpture park, so not a huge problem
Great way to get introduced to Oslo
