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!

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.

Since Norway is about Fjords I wanted to see Oslo's. Booked a two hour tour and I'm glad I did. Got down there about fifteen minutes before and boarded a really nice boat. It wasn't such a nice day, but the ride was nice nonetheless. The scenery was pleasant, not the grand Fjords Norway is known for, but still enjoyable.... More

I took the two hour tour. It was really beautiful and the guide gave us information about each place we passed. I would definitely recommend this trip if you are in Oslo as it shows a very different side if the city.

We went on the 2hr. cruise and were pleasantly surprised. We had great views of the city and the various island in Oslo fjord. We were lucky to have a very sunny day, which makes a big difference. Staff were accomodating and the tourguide was likable and entertaining. The information was a little light. Two hours is more than enough,... More

My family took the 1.5 hour mini cruise. it was July but rainy and very cold. Fortunately they have plastic sides on the back of the boat and free blankets but we were still pretty cold. There was an audio recording explaining some of the major sights like the opera house and Kon Tiki museum but not many interesting facts... More

The rain and cold we cannot take away - but all the boats have indoor saloons to sit. We would like to know what interesting... More

This old wooden sailing ship (using diesel) is a joy. It is so much fun compared to the other ferries and to the city bus #30. Still you will need to plan so you can use it. It is included in the three day Oslo Pass. If you can't use it one way, take bus #30 and it will take... More
