Lene was awesome. We enjoyed her knowledge of history and the area. Did a nice walk of downtown, old town, and went out to the museum island. Her English is superb. We enjoyed coffee and conversation as well. She recommended a great dinner place and gave us ideas for our next day of touring on our own. Definitely recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Sally, it was a pleasure to spend time with both of you today! I wish you a beautiful day tomorrow and a great cruise to the North of Norway. All the best from Lene

Very knowledgeable about the history of Oslo and provided great background on what was happening today in the city. Liked the unexpected things such as dropping into a small store to get an impression of "local" foods. The food stops showcased traditional Norwegian food. Lene was really friendly and made the tour enjoyable - Excellent Guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Barry! Best wishes from Lene

Lene is a wonderful guide. Took us to all the places we wanted to see by public transportation-qwik and convenient. Would recommend her without hesitation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was very nice to meeting and spending time with you :) Best regards from Lene

Again Lene followed me to the chiropractor, before we started our day together. We visited several good museums and had a great lunch at a restaurant on an island. A nice tram ride took us up to the highest viewpoint of Oslo and the best apple cake I've ever tasted - awesome!

Lene gave me a very nice and warm welcome to Oslo! She helped me with a chiropractor to fix my hip, before we started our four days program of exploring the city together. Everything went smooth and was great!!

Lene picked us up at ship, with taxi and driver, as scheduled and led a 4-hour personalized tour with enthusiasm, knowledge and helpfulness regarding my use of handicapped mobility scooter. Everything was exactly as planned and we were very pleased.

Lene took us to Drobak, a Seaside village and resort in the Oslo Fjord — very scenic and convenient route on the public bus. Everything about Christmas is there, beautiful cafes on the water and everyone swimming (it was a hot summer in 2018). Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Likewise :)

This was our second tour with Lene while and we found her to be an outstanding guide-thoughtful, intelligent and a mother-hen when necessary. This was a bicycle tour with a bunch of novices and she made the trip a pleasure, accommodating the capable riders as well as the novices. She modified the program when necessary and enabled us to enjoy everything we wanted to see while providing excellent commentary along the way. I would recommend highly Lene to anyone wanting a bicycle tour of Oslo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank's again, Alan, I started to laugh when I read your comment; you're really good at putting words together... ;-) I'm so happy that these are the memories you bring home from this day; I enjoyed it also a lot! Best wishes from Lene

Lene was an exceptional guide-she was friendly, knowledgeable,thoughtful and made our 5 hours a pleasurable time during which we learned much about Norway and Oslo. Since the tour was focused on foods of Norway she arranged for the preparation of a delightful platter of regional cheeses and sausages at a local food court with a knowledgeable foodie to discuss them with us. I highly recommend Lene to anyone who would like to spend a lighthearted 5 hours in Oslo with emphasis on food and culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Alan, for very nice words about me, and for two memorable days with all of you! If you ever come back to Oslo again, don't hesitate to contact me; it would be a pleasure meeting you again. Have a beautiful rest of your vacation :) Lene

Lene is great! Very knowledgeable about Norwegian history. We learned a lot! The tour was maybe a bit long at the end but we had a great time and definitely got our steps in for the day. Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Katie, yes, the tour is a bit long when we don't use public transport in the end; I shall remember to emphasis this another time! I really enjoyed spending time with you - what a nice group you are :) I hope you slept deep and well after that much exercise. Best regards from Lene

Lene was great! We only had a day to see Oslo and we asked her to pack in a lot during our time there. She was great and so efficient. She even brought us to a great food court for a snack before we had to rush back to the airport. She had a lot of knowledge to share with us as well. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! :)

A great snapshot tour of Oslo's highlights and by bike is the perfect way to do it. From assistance with buying public transport tickets to lunch 'somewhere the locals go' nothing was too much trouble for Lene.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Meaghan! It was very nice to spend those hours with you,- have a wonderful rest of the trip :) Lene

Lene took me on a private walking tour of Oslo, with an itinerary perfectly tailored to my requests. I wanted a good orientation to the city, public transportation and dining. She took me to a cool flea market in my neighborhood, by the Royal Palace where she explained the highlights of Norway's and Oslo's history, and we took a walk through Grunalokke to the Vulkan Mathallen (the food hall). Lene was friendly, informative and helpful, and it helped that she shared the same interests and opinions as me!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for giving me your feedback on our time together, Gretchen, I enjoyed it as much as you! I hope that the rest of your trip was wonderful, and that you return to Oslo another day :) All the best to you also,- regards from Lene
