Your Private Accessible Oslo tour will begin when you meet your local Oslo guide at your central accessible Oslo hotel or cruise dock. Your guide has extensive experience touring with disabled clients in Oslo, and is ready to share interesting information and anecdotes with you as you walk/stroll your way through Oslo.
On this accessible guided tour you will see the magnificent Royal Palace. This historic Royal Palace was built in the first half of the 19th century by the Norwegian residence of the French-born King Charles III of Norway, who reigned as king of Norway and Sweden. The palace is still the official residence of the present Norwegian monarch.
Next, your private Oslo guided tour will lead you to other significant historical attractions including Storingtet, the Parliament Building in use since 1866. Escorted by your guide, you will make your way to the Oslo Cathedral, the present building dates from 1694-1697.

From the City Hall you will follow your guide to the Oslo Opera House, which is the home of The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, and the national opera theatre in Norway.
