This tour includes:
- 24-hour Oslo Pass for the city's public transit system, including subway, bus, ferry boat
- Private, certified, English-speaking guide who will meet you at the cruise ship pier
- Guided city tour including a subway ride to Nydalen, and walk along the Akerselven River
- Bus ride through the city to the end of the line at Bygdoy, Oslo's museum center, for a visit to the Viking Ship Museum (admission included)
- Ferry ride back to the city center and walk to your cruise pier.

For a view of several sides of Oslo you will not see on most tours, travel around the city with a private guide and ride several modes of public transportation.

We will take a short walk through the area and along the river that once supported all the factories with electric power. There is a lot of history still in the walls of the houses, that date mostly from the late 1800s, when they were part of Oslo's industrial revolution. The many new business in this interesting area have revived it.

From Nydalen we'll travel by bus, through the whole city, literally from one end to the other. We’ll pass through the working man’s quarters on the east side, past the railway station and the new Opera House, into the city center, where we’ll see Norway's Parliament building, the Grand Hotel, and Karl Johan Street. We’ll drive along the park of the Royal Palace, past the American Embassy and the Nobel Institute, and through Bygdøy Alle, famous for its chestnut trees, to Bygdøy peninsula.

This lovely waterfront recreation area south of the city, boasts the King’s summer residence and, located within a few blocks of each other, five museums offering a widely-varied view of Norway's past -- from farming and religion to shipbuilding and exploration. There, we'll visit the Viking Ship museum before returning to the city center via ferry.

Though the Viking Ship Museum is highly recommended, your group is free to visit any of the museums at Bygdøy. If you wish to visit several or all of the museums, you may choose to do so on your own and return independently by ferry to the City Hall Pier and a short walk to your ship. The Oslo Pass includes admission to all of the museums.

Shore Excursions

By: Laurie

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2017

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.

Summer Hawaii Cruise

By: CGreene

Reviewed on: 17 Aug 2018

I arranged a church group of 55 for a Hawaiian cruise. This was our first time to use ShoreTrips and we had VIP treatment as compared to the mega busloads arriving from the ship/hotels excursions. Many times we had a site all to ourselves and then were leaving when the larger groups arrived. With all of the excitement about the active volcano, we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived on the Big Island. Those taking the helicopter ride raved about the experience and others were amazed to truly explore, taste and see that there is much more to her than only the volcanos. Every guide was lovely and professional, in fact, when I asked my group of to each submit 2 of their personal favorite photos, one was a guide on the last day in Honolulu for the private Pearl Harbor/airport excursion. It was nice to choose a selection of excursions for my group and ShoreTrips truly worked hard to make every trip come to fruition. Highly recommend all types of excursions with them.
