This tour includes a city walk passing monumental buildings such as: The Parliament, The Royal Palace and the main-street Karl Johansgate. Public transportation will bring us to the famous Vigeland Sculpture park and the Food Hall Vulkan. The order of sights visited may vary. We will taste the best cheese and ham produced in the Norwegian Valleys, buy shrimps in the harbor directly off the fishing boats, and see the catch of the day either at the port or in the Food Hall. Through the whole day you will get a thorough understanding of Norwegian history, culture, tradition and food. We will probably need some lunch during the day. That is not included in the tour.
