While this tour brings you through a beautiful setting, the nature of the ship is one that precludes optimal sight lines making it thus difficult to see the sights or take photos. The narration is also lacking. I don't know if there are better options for cruises of Oslo's fjord but this tour is not worthwhile.

We loved riding the ferries from Downtown to the museums. I know the bus runs that direction, but when you're in Oslo it'd be silly to miss an excuse to get on the water!

We did the 2 hour Fjord Tour and while it was enjoyable, I wouldn't be rushing back to do it again. The boat was rather crowded and the commentary was limited. In saying that, it was a gorgeous day out on the water and it was a lovely way to see Oslo.

Hi. Thanks for taking your time to share your experience. We are sorry you had to experience our most crowded day - usually we try to provide more boats on these events. Early in the season we still have to do maintenance and safety and have few boats to put in action. Thanks again for taking time writing us and... More

We visited here for a few days and used both the ferry service to the museums and the fjord sightseeing boat trip. Both did not disappoint. Friendly and efficient staff. The fjord boat trip was wet and cold but blankets were provided, it looked lovely with the lanterns and the mist and was a lovely trip. The museum ferries are... More

Hi and we are sorry for the price misunderstanding. The price advertised of 269 nok is actually 2014/2015 prices. We would like to know where this was advertised so we can update with new prices. The price until 16 of march should be 285 nok. This is also displayed in web, on posters and flyers. Sorry that our salesperson was... More

This was the best way to see Oslo through the fjords. We spent New Years Day on the 2 hour tour. I will tell everyone in Oslo to take this trip. It is informative on all the big obvious sights as well as touring the more intimate shores along the islands of the summer cottages. We even had warm hot... More

A great way to see the major attractions around Oslo Harbour is on the "Batservice" Hop on Hop off mini cruise. There are four departures a day, so you can choose between staying on board for the one hour trip without disembarking....or stop at two locations and take about 5 hours if you wait for the last circuit. We boarded... More

We really enjoyed this 3 hour Shrimp Cruise. The scenery was beautiful! We met some local Norwegians on the boat celebrating their anniversary! The Shrimp was delicious and was all you can eat. The drinks you pay for yourself. Very smooth sailing. Loved being out with the cruise ships! we will see you again!

I'm normally not one who goes for the guided tours (I prefer to wander and discover on my own), but for a culture so defined by the water I felt the need to check this out... plus I had some extra time.

Was very impressed with our one way tour on the museum ferry, we would have taken it again. The 10min ride offers nice views around the marina and is much faster than taking the bus around the peninsula. No complaints at all.
