9-hour tour to make the most of your day in Oslo
A full day tour that will make the most of your day in Oslo. I'll customize your itinerary to prioritize the museums and sights you want to see. This tour allows you to choose the major downtown sights, such as the Royal Palace, Norwegian Parliament, the City Hall, and the Oslo Opera House. We'll take a scenic ferry ride from the downtown harbor to Bygdøy, where we can see the Viking Ship Museum, the Polar Ship Fram Museum, the Kon-Tiki Museum and the open-air Folk Museum with a stave church from the 1200's. We can also go further afield and see the Vigeland Sculpture Park.
After hearing your interests and energy level, I will make a suggested itinerary that meets your needs, for either a fast-paced tour or one at a more leisurely pace. You can choose how much time you want to spend at each museum, seeing just the highlights or going more in depth.
For this tour, I suggest that you get the Oslo Pass which gives free admission to all the museums we will see and includes public transport.
This a full day tour. In 9 hours, we be able to see most of the main sights and have time for a relaxed lunch. You can determine the pace of the tour and what we visit. You'll have a chance to get off your feet during lunch, a coffee/snack break and some interesting films that some of the museums show.
