Great cruise for learning about the area around Oslo’s harbour. The boat was really nice (and brand new!) and there’s plenty of seating so no need to worry about not getting a ‘good table’. In fact we were able to move to sit on the opposite side about halfway through. The boat is nice and warm inside and it’s easy to pop outside to take photos as well. The guide was really interesting and an Oslo native, talking about the history and current facts about various buildings and islands etc. She also came round to see everyone and was available for questions which I thought was a lovely friendly touch. We felt very comfortable on this cruise and would try another of the company’s excursions if we visit Norway again. One very minor point is that the description says that the talk would include info about nature and another review mentions an underwater drone but this wasn’t the case. I think the description is a little out of date but it was still great anyway!

We felt lucky to be in a new electric boat which was in service for just a month. Two decks of fully heated seating area . The tour guide was in English very nice lady who presented with wit and pleasant to listen to. We sat in the upper deck and the view was breathtaking. The bar located in the lower deck sold refreshments and alcohol. On the upper deck you could also go into the open space (-4degree) to take photographs or view the tour in the cold. Despite everything being expensive in Norway, we felt this ride was value for money. Highly recommend to see the Oslo fjord via this pleasant silent sustainable mode. Excellent service

Sitting on the second floor front of the wide window was the perfect spot, turning chairs to look everywhere. Beautifully view. Good brunch ans friendly personnel. The perfect way to discover the fjords in winter , staying inside or having the option to go out.

Very pleasant boat trip. Very clean and comfortable boat. Amazing views. It was perfect

Was a great experience. One of the best things I did on my trip to Oslo.
