This tour included the Viking museum and the Thor Heyerdahl Kon Tiki museum. Both interesting and very well presented. The highlight of this trip was the fact that we were in a brand new bus which would not start when we were about to leave the museums for the port. Time for sailing was fast approaching. The guide calmly called for assistance and when a mechanic arrived he did some checks and pointed out to the driver that he needed to breath into the breath analyzer before the bus would start. Needless to say the driver was embarrassed. Read Less

This was included in our tour package of the glass shop and viking museum. The Viking Museum was small and very crowded. It was however an interesting thing to see. It did not require much time.

We took an Uber to the Viking Museum and got there right at opening, which was great because large crowds came in later as we were leaving. Very interesting and a must-see.

This tour included a stop at a glass works factory about an hour outside of Oslo in the mountains. The factory produces hand blown glass ware and we were taken directly inside of it where we got to see the glassware being hand blown, shaped and finished. The tour included a light morning breakfast croissant with coffee which was actually very good. After the glass factory we headed down to the viking ship museum to see the viking ship dating from around 800 AD. There ship was awesome as was the artifacts discovered with it. Read Less
