Excellent tour
Aug 2019
We took this tour last
Sunday with NIAMH. We had first wanted to take the city tour, but it was full and we are so glad we did this one. You can do the city yourself on foot! We rode along the beautiful river right inside the town, through diverse neighbourhoods, getting great information and history from our very knowledgeable guide.guide. She was also eager to answer all of our questions. Also visited the Opera House. This was a well paced tour, bikes in great shape. They were very organized and on time.

Thank you for the great review, and I will let Niamh know how much you enjoyed her tour. And I always appreciate the feedback on the smaller details like the pace of the tour, the quality of the bikes and the overall smooth running of our operation. Thanks so much! Best regards, Curtis

A nice spin through Oslo
Aug 2019
Tour started out great, with cool air and sunshine helping. I liked going along the river, too, but maybe a little less time on the river and less time going through crowded streets near the end and a little more time in the neighborhoods would have improved it.

Hi and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Most of our customers find the Akerselva River to be the highlight of the tour, with its funky street art, covered food market, numerous waterfalls and amazing nature right in the city center. Everyone has their own preferences of course, so we are glad that you still found the tour to be a nice spin through Oslo. Best regards, Curtis

Great way to see different part of Oslo
Aug 2019
We enjoyed our tour a lot! From start (e-mail contact) to finish (end of tour). All was perfectly fine. Great way to see the waterfalls in Oslo and other areas you wouldn't easily find as a one day tourist. Our tour guide told us the right things. (All boring facts I can read in a guidebook) She told us about the Norwegians and their habits. We were all (51,53,17,19) very happy we booked the tour. Would do it again with these guys!!

Thank you for the nice review and we are glad that you found the tour to be more from a local's perspective, not just a bunch of facts from a guidebook. That is why we have so much fun guiding -- each guide shares the tour from his or her perspective, about life in Norway and the culture here. Best regards, Curtis

Tour is overrated
The tour guide was nice, however her knowledge was below the standard you can expect from a guide. Most of the information was very basic, the details were lacking. Half of the group left half way into the tour (6 guests wanted to do the rest of the tour on their own).

Hi Frederik, Thank you for taking the time to post a review, but we are of course disappointed that the tour did not live up to expectations. I will message you directly to get more input from you so we can make sure in the future no other customers have a similar experience. Do note that the customers who left half way into the tour did not do so because they were unhappy -- they simply wanted to ride faster and farther then the tour went, so they changed from a guided tour to a rental. They returned to the shop at the end of the day very happy with their bike experience in Oslo. Best regards, Curtis

Bike tour of Oslo
Jul 2019 • Family
Excellent group tour - 9 in the group. Covered much of this bike friendly city including the river and waterfalls. Knowledgable guide and frequent stops to take in the views with a coffee/cake stop as well (at your own cost). Comfortable bikes in three sizes with helmets supplied. Suitable for a range of ages - we were 17-60 with moderate fitness.

Hi and thank you for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed our morning bike tour which takes in some of the less known sites of Oslo, like the waterfalls and the food market "Mathallen". It is a fun tour for us to guide as it shows a bit more of "our" Oslo, the side of the city we use on a daily basis. Best regards, Curtis

3 hour bike tour within Oslo ..10am -1pm
Experienced, well run and a lot of fun. Great insight into the City. Felt safe and certain we would be back in time for ship departure at 1.30pm. Very good guide. We weren't the only over 55's in our group.

Thank you David for the nice review and we are glad you enjoyed our morning "Oslo Off the Beaten Path" tour. We work with customers often who come from the cruise boats, and we pay attention to the timing when you have a boat to board at an early time. We are glad you felt safe and certain during your ride.
