The Basics

Oslo Cathedral is the main church for the Church of Norway Diocese of Oslo. Elements original to its construction include the pulpit, organ front, and altarpiece—a 1748 model ofThe Last Supper and the Crucifixion. Dating from the 1850s, the bazaar halls (Basarhallene) behind the cathedral periodically host markets and cafés. A variety of group and private tours of Oslo—including by bus, foot, and Segway—visit the cathedral as well as the city’s other top sights. Shore excursions generally also stop here. If traveling independently, book ahead for a guided tour of the cathedral.

Oslo Combo Tour: Grand City Tour and Oslo Fjord Cruise
The Vigiland park and Fram museum were nice and interesting. The cruise was nice unfortunately it was raining and there was no protection for all the people. That is why I give only 4 stars

Oslo Combo Tour: Grand City Tour and Oslo Fjord Cruise
The guide, Anita, was born and raised in the area so had special knowledge to share with us. We really enjoyed the ski jump and Vigeland park. We decided to forego the Fjord Cruise so cannot comment on it.

Oslo Combo Tour: Grand City Tour and Oslo Fjord Cruise
I absolutely loved everything we got to see and learn about! I loved hearing all the stories and backgrounds of each place we visited! Instead of just letting us explore on our own, we got an in depth tour almost every step of the way! I loved it and I would recommend it to anyone coming to Oslo! We got to see the Ski Jump, the museum with the ship that went to the South Pole, the cultural houses, and even got to take a tour of the Oslo fjords on a Viking Ship! :)

Oslo Combo Tour: Grand City Tour and Oslo Fjord Cruise
This was one of the most beautiful tours I ever taken. Margaret, our tour guide, was the queen of Oslo. She was lovely, knowledgeable, candid, entertaining and very energetic as well. It was so easy to understand her and to follow all the information she shared. She managed the group so well ensuring the itinerary was completed in time. For those who take the cruise be aware of wind and cold. Bring your own food since there is no time during the day for a stop to take lunch. 100% recommended!!!!

Tour was good and the guide knowledgeable with good energy. The only downside is that they rush you quite a bit so have to go back to some sights we really liked. Overall good experience so would recommend it.
