Loved it. Can’t remember my guides name but he was a wonderful Ukrainian man who delivered a great dialogue about Norway and their culture and the significance of places. I will remember this walking tour for years

Our guide was wonderful: friendly, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. The tour carried on in the snow which made it all the more atmospheric and, for me, enjoyable.

It was a fun way to see some of the major sites of the city. Will definitely look into doing this again in other cities.

Everything was excellent and we would take it again. We recommend it
