Guiding is in my blood and the most enjoyable work I have done. I love walking around Oslo in my free time and feel privileged to be able to show people what I believe to be the greatest city to live in (I've been to over 75 countries and haven't found a better place). There's something in this city for everyone; world class art, significant historical sites and great nature within walking distance of downtown.
I pride myself on being able to relate to and meet the interests of a wide variety of people and will happily customize your tour to meet your needs.
A few words about my background. I grew up in the US and first visited Norway when hitchhiking around Europe when I was 19. Enchanted with the country, I came back to study at the University of Oslo, where I got my undergraduate degree. After graduate school in the US, I returned to Norway and taught at the law school here for over 20 years. I now have spent the majority of my adult years in Oslo and am a Norwegian citizen.
A Recent Review of this guide
We had a marvelous time in Oslo. Andrew, our travel guide was phenomenal! He made our trip so special. He was very knowledgeable about the locations, history, and facts about Norway. We learned so much about the country from Andrew, not only of the history of what we were seeing but also of how the Norway people of today live. We can't say enough good things about Andrew. He truly went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you, Andrew, for this wonderful experience to bring home with us.

I'm an authorized guide and can guide in all museums.
I would not be able to be your driver in Oslo, but I could arrange for a limo or taxi for part or all of your tour.
