What you'll do

§ If you are a family with children under 10 years old, I'll be happy to offer a discount. Simply send me a message before booking. Cheers! § This isn't a run-of-the-mill kind of tour from a typical travel agency, but rather a cultural and intellectual exchange whereby we visit some places of interest, both touristic and non-touristic, and share our perspectives on Oslo, Norway and life in general. We will travel back in time, to Akershus Fortress, a medieval castle built 700 years ago; to the 400-year-old city of Christiania; and to the Royal Palace, dating back to the 19th century. Furthermore, we will visit some important government institutions: the Parliament House and the Oslo City Hall, where the Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony is held; as well as cultural institutions such as the prestigious National Theatre and the world-famous Opera House. In addition, we will take a walk in the beautiful district of Aker Brygge, and spend some time in SALT, a nomadic art project and an iconic cultural meeting point full of vibrancy and charm. As a foreigner living in Oslo, I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and seeing how they experience and appreciate Oslo in (sometimes very) different ways. I'm not a guide, but rather a companion in your own journey of discovering this fascinating city. I hope you will fall in love with Oslo, with its past, present and future.

Olivier

Hello there, and welcome to the fascinating city of Oslo! My name is Olivier and I'm excited to be taking you on an informal whirlwind tour exploring the very best this Tiger City has to offer. Since 2015, I've been offering personalized travel experiences (in English/French/Spanish), first in Singapore and now in Oslo. It has been really a wonderful journey and we often find ourselves engaged in cultural and intellectual exchanges while discovering the city together. Having lived in Belgium, Peru and Singapore, I truly enjoy and appreciate meeting people from different backgrounds: I believe every person's life is worth a novel and everyone has a story to tell. I would love to hear your story and share with you all the stories I know about Oslo. It is an enchanting city, and I hope to help you discover all its charm and wonder.

What's included

Food
BIXIT, the legendary biscuit that Roald Amundsen brought with him on his expedition to the South Pole!
