"Fun cruise and delicious food"

Recommended by IriSHrimP, 21 May 17
I went when it was foggy and pouring rain, so not a popular time =). There were only 7 guests on the cruise that night. The crew was super friendly and accommodating, making sure we were warm and dry despite the weather. The crew was very attentive and made sure we were all happy. When it was time to eat, they brought everything out to us and there was more than enough food. I had a great time and met new friends despite the chilly/rainy weather. You could still see enough of the fjords so there was nothing wrong with going at night in less than ideal weather, which I was reminded was typical Norwegian weather ;P. Great time though and highly recommend.

"Okay "

Recommended by Georgia , 26 Dec 16
We went in December. Although the weather couldn't be helped by the tour company, it definitely impacted on the experience. It says it was running twice a day but when we got to the morning one, which was actually accompanied by clear skies and some sun, we were told it was cancelled and to come back later. When we went back, it was so foggy. The trip would be much more enjoyable in the summer, when it's a bit warmer and there is more to see. Having said that, blankets were provided which was nice! Hot food and drinks could also be purchased on the boat, which weren't too expensive either! 😊

"Memorable trip"

Recommended by Rachel Evenson Kopp, 07 Sep 16
My daughter and I just landed back in the USA and want to go back to Norway. Loved your country! The beauty of the land, friendliness of people, and interesting culture are all reasons to return. We stayed at Airbnb's and all turned out to be wonderful places and hospitable hosts.
In Oslo and Bergen we used public transport and worked out well. Safe, clean and convenient, well done Norway!
We are Norwegian Americans fifth generation from when our ancestors immigrated and I'm proud to claim Norway as much as my country USA. Modern Norwegians should be very proud of the country they have built.

I will be returning as soon as I am able to do so. Thank you for a great vacation. I am motivated to live more like my Norwegian relatives than the American way of life. So many aspects of your culture are healthy and positive. Well done again.

"Most amazing attraction in Oslo"

Recommended by Aurelie&Jack, 31 Aug 16
My boyfriend and I went last Friday to the evening cruise on the Oslo fjords. It was the only evening where the sky was clear, even if it was windy, it was the best experience ever.
Staff members were really nice. The prawns buffet was huge, served with bread, salad and butter. It was enough to consider it as dinner and it was delicious.
The cruise is amazing and was worth every penny.
Our heads are full of unforgettable memories and we will never forget this evening, it was stunning.

We highly recommend it.

"Vakker fjord og eiendommer presentert på dårlig engelsk"

Recommended by Peterik, 22 Aug 16
Guiden var kunnskapsrik men var overraskende dårlig til å snakke engelsk. Det resulterte i en del pinlige episoder hvor vi så at de overveiende utenlandske deltagerne kikket på hverandre med hevede øyebryn og et spørrende uttrykk.
Eksempel fra turen: "Many birds come to Oustøen to make eggs."(!)
Det var sol og varmt inne, og flere undret seg over at man ikke åpnet lukene i taket på "innedelen".
Men, været og skjønnheten reddet turen.

"Feil type båt"

Recommended by Pia 44, 03 Aug 16
Hei
Har vært med på rekebuffet på skute 3 år på rad nettopp fordi vi liker å være ute på fjorden og kose oss med reker samt se oslofjorden rundt
Men, i år så fikk vi en båt "christiania" trur jeg den het. Her var det ikke plass til alle på dekk for å spise, så mange måtte gå under dekk. Det var litt trist da vi ikke fikk se fjorden mens vi skulle spise og kose oss med reker. vet at Johanna gikk "ned" noe som er trist. Men denne båten vi var på nå, passet ikke til å sitte oppe på dekk å spise. Synes det var veldig dumt! Det var også en del voksne turister som hadde vanskelig for å gå ned trappa ned under dekk. Men vi kommer tilbake neste år :)

"Kjempefin tur! "

Recommended by Tina. M, 29 Jun 16
Jeg og min mor hadde en utrolig fin tur med båten! Vi satt tilfeldig på bord med en gjest som jobbet på Oslofjorden, så han visste utrolig mye om steder vi kjørte forbi og kjente personer som bodde her og der
Ellers kunne jeg savnet en som pratet litt høyt over høytaleren om hvor vi var hen og hva vi skulle se etter. Er ikke alle som er fra Oslo og vet alt om Oslofjorden. God plass, mye fin musikk fra livebandet og nydelige store reker som vi fikk servert på båten. Turen kan anbefales på det sterkeste!

Gjorde turen for å vise en svensk venninne fra USA litt av Oslo; veldig bra tur som ga et flott inntrykk av Oslo og byens skjærgård. At været var strålende bidro selvsagt også!

Den unge mannen som var guide snakket engelsk litt slurvete og for fort slik at en del av opplysningene nok gikk tapt for deltakerne på turen.

En glipp var det at vi passerte meget tett på kongeskipet "Norge" uten at dette ble nevnt med et ord!

"Perfect day on the fjord"

Recommended by Millie, 12 May 16
Myself and a friend booked (online prior to arrival in Oslo) for a trip on the fjord leaving from Oslo harbour. We had a lovely time on the trip and we were very impressed by the boat and also the service on board. We felt the price we paid for the 2 hour trip was really good and a fantastic way to see Oslo and the fjord from the water. We opted for the 15:30 tour and although we had paid prior to arrival in Oslo, we signed up for that time and collected our tickets the morning of the tour (ca. 10:30am). This is a MUST because if you pre-pay online as we did, and you don't select a specific time then you must collect your tickets and put your name down for the time you would like because the trips get very busy and booked up with people buying tickets on the day.

"Boatservice Sight Seeing"

Recommended by Shelley K., 09 Sep 15
We really enjoyed the boat tour with the guide's commentary. You will definitely want to sit closer to the front on a windier day, as it did get cold toward the back, but the views are arguably better. Some really interesting insight is shared about the region, culture and lifestyle of the local people, and you get a good feel for the Oslo Fjords. It made me want to visit the rest of Norwegian's Natural Beauty!

I went on the 3 hour summer cruise where you also get served food (specifically, you get shrimps, bread, salad, butter and various dressings).

"Enestående oplevelse "

Recommended by Anja, 01 Oct 14
Vi have først booket til rekecruise uten musik, men fik opgraderet vores billetter til blues Cruise . Det var en super oplevelse god musik og sidde pladser . Vi vil kun anbefale denne tur da vi fik at vite og kunne se atder ikke var ordentlige siddepladser på den vanlige rekecruise . Det syntes vi er veldig dårligt , man kommer i sit fine tøj og må sitte med tallerknen på fangen sin mens man piller reker . Og hvor kan man stille sit vinglas. Syntes at det er vigtigt at kunne sidde ordentlig. Det eneste vi manglede på Cruisen er en bolle med vand til at skylle fingrene når du piller reker .

"Oslo Fjord tour by boat"

Recommended by , 12 Sep 14
We found the title of this tour was a little misleading. The tourist's understanding of a fjord versus that of the guides in Oslo is quite different. We were expecting the large canyon style of the north coast but instead had a tour of the neighbouring islands. The tour itself was interesting and we had no issues at all with the booking company. In fact, we had forgotten our tour confirmation on board our ship but the staff at BÅTSERVICE SIGHTSEEING checked their paperwork, found our confirmation and had us in line within 15 minutes. Very nicely done.

Hello, thank you for you feedback. You have visited the Oslofjord, which is the only fjord in the Oslo area. This is quite clear both in the text on www.visitoslo.com and www.nyc.no, and in the brochure that you get at the Tourist Information office and on board. The other fjords of the Western part of Norway are very far away from Oslo, at least 5-6 hours by train or car, and cannot be reached by boat on a two hour round trip. The Oslofjord is different from the other fjords, and the pictures online and on the brochure show the islands of the Oslofjord and the itinerary of this trip. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Oslo!

"Fin tur"

Recommended by Thor Harald, 04 Jun 14
Dette er et 2-timers mini-cruise i Oslofjorden på seilbåt (med motor). Båten kjører rundt og du får oppleve fjordidyll, sjøhus og severdigheter som forventet. Guide via lydanlegg på engelsk. De border ganske mange folk, og hvis du vil ha bord ved rekka må du møte opp tidlig og stille deg fremst i køen. Setene er harde og solen er sterk; sitteunderlag og beskyttelse mot solen anbefales. Alkohol, vafler og snacks kan kjøpes i byssa. Båten vibrerer en del på grunn av motoren, og skal du filme, bør du bruke stabilisator og kort lukkertid.

"Great sightseeing service"

Recommended by Rhoda - Houston TX, 10 Sep 13
The tour guide was funny and entertaining, but very informative. The tour itself took you through the inlets and outlets of the islands within the Oslo fjord for 2 hours...this is an excellent way to see this beautiful region especially if you're only in Oslo for a short time. The boat ride was also very relaxing. This trip is highly recommended for photographers also because unlike other tours, the boat actually gets close enough to the islands so that you can take some great pictures. Finally, it's a great and relaxing way to soak in the sun while taking in some breathtaking views.

"Very Good Customer Service"

Recommended by Canadian Family, 04 Sep 13
We recently spent three days in Oslo. We took the 2 hour Fjord Cruise tour first and it was delightful. Our guide was excellent and provided many interesting, and often humourful, anecdotes about Oslo and the surrounding areas.

The next day we had booked for the 4-hour selected sites tour and of course it started to rain when we were at the sculpture park. This wouldn't have been so bad, except our tour bus departed without us, and from a different location than we had been told. Obviously no count was done prior to departure, because we were all of 20m to the left of our designated bus. After frantically trying to find the bus, in the rain, for almost 30 minutes, I spoke with one of the site guides who took me to a bus driver.

Both gentlemen were very kind. The driver called the office. We were promptly refunded our tour price and added to another tour free of charge. They made sure we knew the arrangements, showed us to our next bus, and were so very polite and helpful.

Because of this caring customer service, instead of continuing to be cold, wet and grumpy, once we got back to the hotel I promptly booked us for a third tour.

Their service is rather excellent and they take care of their customers.

Not sure of the value of this trip versus the city ferry service. It's not a functioning sail boat, and the tour is not that much different than what the city ferry service offers except that you can get food/drink available on board. I didn't take one of the evening musical tours, which may be better value. The staff on board are very nice and helpful. They get a thumbs up from me.

A fantastic guided tour! It was very well organized and the guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. The free time we got allowed us to customize the tour to our liking (as well as get a little rest). To be able to see Oslo from the water as well as the land made this a very special experience.

Recommended by NRajan, 31 May 12
Hi,

This is with reference to the Grand Tour of Oslo that I and my 2 friends took on 27 May, 2012.

I just felt that the Oslo Fjords Sightseeing was not worth for 2 hrs. A majority of these were private islands. Appreciate, if time for this is reduced and more time is given at the Ski Jump (esp, Simulator) and Viking Skulpture Park.

But, otherwise, the visit to the Museums and other places is good.

Recommended by Rainer M., 30 Jun 11
Anlässlich einer 2 1/2 Tage-Städtereise buchte ich die Grand Tour Oslo- eine kombinierte Boots-/ und Bus-Tour durch das gesamte Stadtgebiet von Oslo. Dadurch erhielt ich einen großartigen Überblick über die Geschichte Norwegens und das aktuelle Stadtbild.Die junge Resieführerin erklärte alles auf eine gut verständliche und charmante Weise in Englisch.
Ich bin 100% ig zufrieden.

"A nice relaxing time"

Recommended by Eva, 20 Jun 11
We had a nice overview of how life on those little islands can be with this 2 hour boat trip (fjord trip). Luckily the whether was pretty nice. The girls giving explanations were kind.
We were a little disappointed when visiting Oslo city because of its general architecture : this boat tour remains then one of our best visit: This part of Oslo directed to the sea & its islands is a must-see !

"Oslo Grand Tour - Oslo in a nutshell"

Recommended by Leli, 16 Jun 11
The Grand Tour offers many highlights of Oslo, however, time is very short. The boat trip is nice but too long which means that there is not so much time left for the museums. I would recommend to shorten the boat trip so that more time is available for the cultural part. The guide Max was very friendly and highly motivated. The pick-up service from the hotel however did not work - we finally had to walk to the harbour because the promised bus did not come.

"Båtservice Sightseeing AS"

Recommended by Mark Bohan, 08 Dec 10
Enjoyed the trip around the Oslofjord Islands.
Suggest, given the extreme cold, it would have been nice to offer free hot beverages to those who braved the journey! Tourists have a hard enough time with the expense of Norway as it is! :-)

The trip quite good, but is too much tourists, if it is raining on a deck place under a roof there is not enough.

"Serviceinnstilt guide om bord"

Recommended by S., 23 Aug 10
Jeg bestilte billettene til noen tyske venner som ikke snakket hverken norsk eller engelsk. Da guiden la merke til at vennene mine kun snakket tysk, forklarte hun alt til dem på tysk og det satte de veldig pris på!

"2 h de Magie"

Recommended by piedmarin, 27 Sep 09
La magie du fjord d Oslo , sous un ciel typiquement scandinave , du soleil , des nuages , un crachin , une lumière splendide que l'on retrouve dans certain tableaux nordiques . Magnifique pour le corps et l'esprit !!!
Au sujet du bateau ,ponctualité scandinave, petit ( ça bouge ) bateau très très sympa tout en bois , une ambiance marine bien entretenue par la jeune guide très attentive , souriante , un service à bord parfait et intéressante dans ses commentaires en direct tout au long du périple. Le confort avec en plus comme souvent en Norvège une mise à disposition de couverture polaire pas superflu du tout ....en Septembre. Je recommande , très bon produit . ( même pas malade)

"Nice trip in the Oslo bay"

Recommended by ste, 17 Aug 09
It was a nice trip, the time is about 2 hours and you have the opportunity to see the islands in front of the Oslo port. It's possible to see sea houses of norwegian people, that are really different from the sea houses here in italy. i think it's good to have this trip and then take the other boat that brings you to the islands.
