A must do in Oslo
This was one of the most beautiful tours I ever taken. Margaret, our tour guide, was the queen of Oslo. She was lovely, knowledgeable, candid, entertaining and very energetic as well. It was so easy to understand her and to follow all the information she shared. She managed the group so well ensuring the itinerary was completed in time. For those who take the cruise be aware of wind and cold. Bring your own food since there is no time during the day for a stop to take lunch. 100% recommended!!!!
