Really amazing how Curtis can tell you about all the nice spots in Oslo. What really impressed me is his love for Oslo/Norway but also the passion for his profession. He followed his heart and decided to make people enthusiastic about Oslo and the way the Norwegian people live their lives and how important the nature is in their life. He is a real storyteller and every word he is sharing about Oslo will get your attention. What really impressed us was the story behind friluftliv, he was telling that story with so much compassion that it really convinced us that this is part of the DNA of the Norwegian’s. Although it was a bit cold on the bike, his stories felt warm, so that helped us to continue the ride. Curtis once again many thanks for the inspirational bike ride. We won’t forget this

This was a fantastic 3 hour bike ride around the city with Curtis, who showed a deep knowledge of the history and culture of Oslo. We took in all of the locations frequented by locals, stopped off for some traditional food and passed by many restaurants/bars of interest. Would highly recommend doing this tour towards the start of your visit to Oslo as you'll be an expert of the city in 3 hours!

The tour was great fun and a good way to see alot in a short time. Curtis is very knowledgeable about the city and had many entertaining stories for us. I would recommend Viking Biking to anyone who wants to see Oslo from a different angle.

The World City Trail game for Oslo was really nice. On the one hand it's fun and you have to use your brain cells a bit, on the other hand you really learn a lot of interesting facts about the city of Oslo. I can only recommend!

Josh was absolutely amazing who made the trip very nice with his awesome stories and very good vibes!! Its all about these vibes!
