Kirsti C.

Oslo, Norway

I have worked for 30 years in various fields of culture in Norway; 17 years as the general secretary of the actor's association, previously as director of an institution for folk art and culture, 6 years as chairman of the board for the 200 art associations in Norway.

For the last 20 years I have lived and worked in Oslo, where I was born. I therefore have an intimate knowledge of most aspects of Oslo's history, museums, art and architecture, town planning, etc.
I am also interested in current affairs.

The 10 years I have lived abroad - in the US (exchange student), France (student), Germany and South Africa - added by extensive travelling - have broadened my understanding of different cultures and made me aware of the unique values of living in Norway. I always enjoy coming back to Oslo - a city in constant change and development, beautifully situated between the blue fjord and the green hills.

I would love to share some of my knowledge and enthusiasm with tourists visiting my city.

We are very experienced travelers and we all agreed that Kristi is among one of the best tour guides that we ever had the pleasure to tour with. The walking tours on both days were very enjoyable despite the rainy weather. Kristi designed two excellent itineraries for us. Kristi is extremely knowledgeable, the tours were well-paced. We were able to complete the tours in a most enjoyable and comfortable pace. We saw and learnt a lot. Thanks Kristi!

In Norway you need a professional driver's license to drive paying guests. My tours are either by public transport, walking, or by hired car with driver.
