Our most important sights in the comfort of a private car

This is the tour for those of you who wish to see our most important sights in the most comfortable way. You will have a personal car with driver for the entire tour and me as your guide.

We will meet at your hotel, cruise ship or other desired location in the city centre. We will see the most important sights of Oslo; the Opera, Akershus Fortress, City hall, the Frognerpark with the Vigeland installation and Holmenkollen Ski jump.

Both the Opera and the ski jump offers beautiful views, the mighty Akershus Fortress is steeped in history and the Frognerpark is the largest sculpture park in the world by one artist.


We will meet at your hotel or cruiseship if in city centre. From there we will in the most convinient order visit the Opera house, Akershus Fortress, the City Hall, Frognerpark with the Vigeland installations and the Holmenkollen skijump. The order in which we visit the different sites will be determined by when we start, weather and if you wish to be driven somewhere else than your hotel/cruiseship when the tour is finished.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: At your hotel/cruise ship if in Oslo's city centre. If not another easy location within the city centre

End location: At your hotel/cruise ship or any other agreed upon location you prefer

Duration: 4 hours

The Cityhall is open most days until 4 pm/16:00. For tours starting later than this, entry is unfortunately not possible. There are also certain days when the Cityhall is closed, I will inform you if this applies to your tour.


By car through most of the city, about 1/4 mile walk at the Fortress and 1/2 mile walk through the Frognerpark

What’s Included

Other: 4 hours of private guiding with me and your own personal car with driver for the duration of the tour

Estimated Local Cash Needed

150 NOK - this is a rough estimate of what a quick lunch stop will be per person. Of course it only applies if you wish to do that lunch stop

What’s Extra

Other: All private expences


In Norway you have to have a government permission to drive passengers commercially. Therefore I cannot be your driver but I am happy to arrange for a professional driver for you and your party.
