What you'll do

We'll start up with buying a ticket for public transport, take a few stops to the west where the posh areas are to visit one of Norways biggest tourist attractions - a park with over 200 sculpures made by the same man! The sculptures are often dark and melancolic with some intresting stories behind them. From there we'll travel by tram down to the picturesque sceenery of the harbour. I show you where the local ferries depart out the islands of the Oslo fjord, I'll point out the free entrance museum of Norways war museum. We'll stroll around the old fourtress dating back to the middle ages protecting the city from unwanted visitors and hear the history behind it. From here we'll move on to the Opera house and explore the finest piece of archetecture that the town has to offer. We'll move on to the eastern neighbourhoods where we'll find a more artsy crowd and the Sunday market that is full of crafted goods and art surrounded by booming street art. I'll also point out the cheap and cosy resturants, the least expensive beer on draught, turksih fast food, food courts and grocery shops where you'll find veggies for a third of the price in the traditional supermarkets. I am happy to give you any information about the best cocktailbars, clubs, resturant and shopping or any other information you'd desire to make your stay in Oslo as good as possible. All highlights packed in one day!
Other things to note
Please bring your own money for bus fare and other purchases like snacks or flea market finds and also an umberella on a rainy day

It was our last 2nd day in Norway and we didn’t do much research on what to do in Oslo. The tour was great for us to visit the key attractions and get a general idea of where else we can go in Oslo. I particularly like how we started the tour from the west to the east, it gives us a sense of the cultural differences in Oslo. We were also lucky that we were the only 2 in the tour, so it had felt very much like a personal tour. Lisa was Super friendly and easy to chat with. Would recommend this to people who doesn’t want a conventional type of tour.
