Amazing service while touring the fjords in oslo. Would sail with them again. Summer is best for a tour of the Fjord as winter is too cold. Was still an amazing trip.⁸

A wonderful evening spent, with excellent scenery! The shrimp buffet comes in very handy. Very tasty shrimp. Eat as much as you want. Drinks are not included in the price. Take a jacket and possibly a hat with you, as it gets cool in the evening. You can ask for a blanket. Very romantic especially in the evening when it is dark. The story about the fjords was a little lacking, but this did not affect the impression in any way

This was a great cruise for an afternoon. There was a good amount of easy to hear commentary as the cruise goes by various areas, bathroom on board, available food, good choices of seating and a reasonable price! Great way to get a feel for the Oslo fjord.

An incredible tour experience around Oslo. They have a voice recording about all the destinations one goes to and is such a lovely way to see the surrounding area. It's really cool to check out the bathhouses around the islands and peninsulas.There is a bathroom on board, blankets are provided, and one can move about freely. They have tarps covering the boat on rainy days, towels to dry seats, and blankets for when it gets chilly. One can also buy food and drink on board, and this is a great place to try a Norwegian hot dog.Tours are 2-hours long and other than an evening dinner cruise, all are before 3:30 PM.

We had a trip to Oslo and all of a suden we decided to take this trip to Oslofjord and the day we had a ticket was all rainy! But eventhough it was rainy the trip was amayzing. I highly recommend to take this trip if you have a plan to see Oslo from the sea side too. If you ask me I would say take the chance even if it is rainy. The weather was a bit cold as it was raining but there are some blankets you can use inside the yatch. The crew are so friendly.

'Ello chaps!Batservice Sightseeing (Boat Service Sightseeing) is located in the heart of downtown Oslo (near Akershus Fortress). They offer a variety of "fjord" sightseeing tours.I say "fjord" because the region is within a "fjord" but the fjords one would imagine being in Norway are found elsewhere, such as near Bergen.Despite this, it's a great two hour tour, and costs about $40 USD. It's money well spent.You get great views of Oslo from the water, getting to see the water shore attractions such as the Oslo Opera House, but also the near by islands and summer homes.Snacks and drinks are available for purchase on board. You can pre-purchase tickets online or in person --- or on the spot, although some tours may fill up.Seating is on an open deck and available first come first serve, so be early for a good spot. They suggest one half hour prior to departure time.Overall I give Batservice Sightseeing 5 stars out of 5.

This was a beautiful ride. Started on time, went smoothly and was a good value. Seating is close. My only complaint is that some inconsiderate man decided to start smoking. There should be a no smoking policy on this ferry.

Took two trips with NYC - both were definitely enjoyableTrips to the museums were very convenient, easy and regularThe larger boat trips around the fjord offered some great views (we were lucky to go on a beautiful day, not sure it would be so fun without good weather). However, the organisation was a little chaotic. We arrived 25 minutes early (as you should to if you want good seats) but even still some tour groups were allowed to skip the queue and steal the best slots. I get that the company did a deal with these tours, but it feels unfair they can arrive at the last moment and be allowed to board first & take the best seats. Also worth noting, not everyone on our voyage even had a proper seat - so while we had a great time, make sure you arrive in early so you’re experience is good too

Beautiful 2 hour trip. Well worth the money. Blankets provided to keep you warm. Hot drinks available to buy on the boat. So many picturesque photo opportunities.
