although there was a lot of information provided it was difficult to hear at times due to traffic noice etc. Recommend ear phones and mic for her so we will be drawing in even when we are not close to her. Gladly paid additional money to be equipped with this system

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your feedback Ivor. I can see that it would have been easier for your larger group to hear, if we had ear phones and microphone. I usually don’t guide more than 10 people at one time on a walking tour, but I did an exception for you. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Norway, welcome back another time! Best regards from Frida

Frida is a very sweet lady, who was very accommodating to our needs. The walking tour was long but very informative. The stress level for walking should have been rated high. There was probably more packed into the 6 hours than could be managed, especially if you stop to grab a bite to eat. All-in-all, an excellent overview of Oslo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Patricia for your kind review and constructive and nice feedback on our tour! Hope to see you in Oslo again! Best regards from Frida

We hired Kjellfrid for a second day (first day was 3h walking tour) to take us to Frogner park, the Nork Cultural Museum, Viking Museum and Fran. Kjellfrid is so full of practical information, places to go and things to do and also very knowledgeable about each destination we visited. She was fantastic with our two children 8 and 12 and she worked at a great pace for our family over the 5 hours we traveled. We took the tram, busses and a ferry and it was extremely fast and easy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! Hope to see you all again!

We met our Tour Guide, Kjellfrid, at the hotel in the morning for our. We started at City Hall which is right near our hotel and then proceeded to see the Old City Center, the incredible Akershus Fortress and we proceeded to walk to the Opera House and then to the piers where we had lunch. Kjellfrid was extremely knowledgeable providing historical information but also a lot about Norwegian culture. She was very engaging with our two children 8 and 12. She worked at an easy pace for us!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Omar for your kind words! I had two greate days at work with you and your family. Give my love to your lovely wife and two beautiful and sporty children. Welcome back to Norway!

Great tour with Frida. We had some time in Oslo before our tour, and Frida helped this group of 6 family members create a tour with something for everyone, with flexibility in case of bad weather. The driver was able to return one of us to the boat while the rest continued with the tour. Lots of great local info. She brought us to a view point much prettier than where the Viking cruise tour took us. She even tracked down the name of a flower in the botanical gardens for us. Very responsive by email too.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mari! I had a greate day at work with you and your family, and I am glad you enjoyed the day too. The best to all of you from Frida!

Frida was knowledgeable, warm & friendly, prompt, very fluent in English in addition to her native Norwegian. We enjoyed every minute as she shared her love of the city of Oslo and her introduction to the major landmarks of historic and artistic interest. She was mindful of the weather (keeping to the indoor areas when rainy & then outdoors as conditions improved.) We especially enjoyed her stories of the Norwegian resistance hero, Gunnar Sonsteby. His bronze statue is on Karl Johans Gate. Excellent tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind feedback of our tour, on a cold rainy day in Oslo. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your holiday in the western part of Norway. Welcome back!

Frida's enthusiasm about Oslo is contagious. She is knowledgeable about all aspects of the city, entertaining and flexible. After her 3 hour walking tour we felt sufficiently oriented to explore further on our own. We would highly recommend her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan! It was really nice walking with you and the other three this Sunday morning in Oslo. Hopefully you will soon come back to us. I wish you all a nice summer! All the best from Frida

Frida was terrific. She was knowledgeable, personable and courteous. It was clear she loves Norway and enjoyed showing Oslo to us. She went beyond just sightseeing and gave us insights into historical and cultural issues. We asked for a restaurant suggestion for dinner and she provided an excellent choice and helped us book a reservation. The dinner was excellent. We would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! I had a great day with the two of you here in Oslo. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday too. You are welcome back! All the best from Frida

Frida was prompt and proved to be exactly what you would desire in a tour guide. She was very informative, talking time to explain all about the Norwegian royal family when we asked. When some of our party wanted to get a bite to eat, while others wanted to visit the central column in Vigeland Park, she gave perfect instructions to make this all happen. She was relentlessly cheerful and obviously very proud of her country and its capital. She receives our highest recommendation!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words David. It was a pleasure spending time with you and your lovely family yesterday. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay here in Oslo, and I hope to see you in Oslo another time. All the best to you all from Frida

Frida was an absolute delight. She was knowledgeable and kept our two girls (ages 10 and 8) engaged throughout the tour. She provided us with the exact tour I requested, and allowed us time to walk in and out of stores. She also gave us helpful tips about transportation and dinning. I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in learning about the Oslo center and beyond.

Kjellfrid/Frida was wonderful! We were a group of 8 and she guided us professionally and knowledgeably through Oslo. I finally understood the art at Vigeland Park! The polar museum didn't seem too exciting when I saw it on the itinerary, but she made it so interesting!! I've been to Oslo twice before, but learned so much from Frida. Highly recommend!
