About the tour

Aker Brygge is a stunning waterfront community where every turn gives new impressive views of architecture and the waterfront. Join our guide and stroll through a lovely mixture of residences, shops, restaurants, canals, and small bridges. The city planners' decision to embrace modern Scandinavian design and art resulted in a beautiful new part of the Norwegian capital.

Good tour very interesting. A suggestion check out your technology find out where the static was coming from. It was a little distracting.

There was a constant clicking sound, like static. It really detracted from what Olav was saying. I did not enjoy this tour, sorry.

A very beautiful and unusual area of Oslo. What a great job has been done to transform the industrial part of the city into a recreation area right in the center. Olav is a great guide! Thanks for the invitation on May 17th. I've already booked it up.
