Experience the highlights of Stavanger city center
It would be a pleasure to show you Stavanger by walking around in the heart of the city. We will see the Cathedral, learn about the fish history, stroll through colorful streets and the charming Old Town. Narrow sweet cobblestone streets and small white wooden houses will give you an idea how life was here earlier. Of course I will also show you more modern sights and tell about daily life here now.
We will walk through Old Stavanger, past Stavanger Cathedral, the market square and fish market, colourful shopping streets, past the Valberg Tower, along the harbour and around part of The Blue Promenade, past the Petroleum Oil Museum.

In Norway you need a professional driver license to drive guests against payment. My tours are by organised transport or walking. I prefer groups of 2-10 people, but I can handle larger groups if required. The tours may be tailor made to suit any interest.
