My 11-year-old daughter and I enjoyed two bike trips with Graciela. Graciela was reliable and knowledgeable, as well as being charming company! The first tour was of the city, and we were introduced to the history and the culture of Norway. Our guide introduced us to the history of the Vikings, the history of Oslo, and then brought us up to date with a trip to ‘The Nobel Peace Prize Hall’. The second trip was out of the city and we followed river Akerselva from its origins to the point where it met the fjord, this particular trip enabled us to see some wonderful countryside, gave us an insight into suburban living, and gave us the opportunity to swim in the beautiful clear water - a real treat! Graciela was very familiar with the route and proved a very confident leader! At all times Graciela was thoughtful and considerate, my daughter and I very highly recommend her!

Graciela met us at our boat with bikes and a smile;) We saw a lot in 4 hours. Oslo is very easy on bikes. We arrange bike tours whenever we can on the first day in a new city. It's a great way to get a feel for the place. Thank you Graciela. Hope to see you in Argentina!

It's great that you've enjoyed your tour. I also think that the best way to discover a city is on a bike. I hope we meet again soon. Best regards, Graciela

Loved this tour. Biking is a great way to see a lot of Oslo in a short period of time, and Graciela was a wonderful guide. We really enjoyed the route she chose, and she was very informative about Oslo’s history and culture. Oslo is mainly a flat city and easy to ride through, but there were a few hills on the route I just didn’t have the energy for, and she easily adapted around our preferences. We use private guides frequently in our travels, and Graciela is definitely one of the best. Highly recommend this tour.

In a few hours you see the complete city. The more touristic parts but also the less known areas. In combination with some history and cultural information. Graciela is a good guide who knows the city by heart.

Great bike tour! We always do a bike tour in every city. A few things that made this one unique: - Our guide, Graciela, was not from Norway so she was able to offer an objective perspective, but was still very knowledgeable about Norway history - She showed us a map at the end of the tour to show us where we had been. It was cool to see how much area we had covered. - She took us to a market and pointed out some of the unique Norwegian food (whale and reindeer!) - She talked about the personality of each neighborhood There are some hills but the bikes have multiple speeds and were able to accommodate the terrain. Overall, a great tour and I would recommend it! Tip: Bring your own bottle of water.
