Excellent food in Oslo
, Mar 2020
Ivana was a fantastic guide to delicious foods in Oslo. My wife and I were lucky enough to be the only couple on the tour, and we enjoyed every minute of the walking, the talking, and the eating and drinking. Highly recommended!
Thank you! Great experience

Great guide! I don't remember her name, but she is from Croatia :) very kind and knowledgable and answered my many questions. The food was so good! Definitely worth your money.
Great tour

Great tour with Ivana - a great way to see the city. Very informative and the food was either great or different or both.
Oslo Tasting
, Mar 2020
Our guide was excellent and delightful. It was a fun small group and exploring Oslo’s culture, history, and food was interesting. The waffle with “caramel” cheese was delicious.
Amazing experience and food
, Feb 2020
The tour was absolutely amazing. Ivana did a great job in showing our group the town, local foods, and little bits amd pieces we would never have thought about. She was so thorough and made sure we were all having a good time and answering all questions we could have had
Rain Did Not Dampen Our Taste Buds!
, Feb 2020
Our guide made the tour a lot of fun -- even though the weather in Oslo that day was miserable! The portion sizes at the places we stopped were very generous - and delicious. The group itself was interesting. Our tour guide was actually from Croatia (but had been living in Oslo for some time.) Other participants were a young woman from Paris and a man from Australia. (We are from the US.) Made for an interesting mix - very international.
A must do food tour of Oslo
, Jan 2020
Our guide, despite being from the USA, made this tour an exceptional tour. We enjoyed traditional Norwegian cuisine, some with a little fusion, and the food was amazing! The tour was also not all food as we were taken to various historical sites along the walk and given little history tidbits which made it interesting. A must do if it's with Cherrie (think that's her
The perfect way to start a vacation in Oslo

We decided to start our vacation with a food tour, and we're very glad we did. Our tour happened to be on Thanksgiving. The rest of the tour had 3 other Americans. Ivana, our guide wished us a happy Thanksgiving. I thought that was especially nice since Thanksgiving is not a Norwegian holiday. She was great with each stop, giving us a bit of history of what we were eating, and let us know how each dish is typically eaten. The walking part of the tour was interesting as well, and she gave us interesting info about buildings, and the neighborhoods we passed along the way. As stated in the information about the tour, there is some walking, and it isn't all flat walking, but we didn't find it to be at all strenuous. In fact, with all the food we ate, it was really nice to be able to do some walking between each tasting. Ivana was friendly, knowledgable and enjoyable to talk to. It really was a great way to start our week in Oslo. I highly recommend this tour.
Fabulous! In every way!
