|Are you interested in unique Oslo experience interweaving history, culture, place and stories and Jewish Oslo? This is the tour for you. I met Rami at my hotel and we began with the Oslo Cathedral, Norwegian history and the Jewish experience. We walked and chatted and all the time I learned about how Jews were invited to Norway and how they experienced successes and challenges culminating in the forced deportation to the ‘camps’. We saw the Akershus fortress where Jews were forced the gather prior to deportation, walked more and visited monuments and plaques and I gained a sense, thanks to Rami of the compliance and resistance of Norway and then impacts on the Jewish community. We visited the Radhus or town hall and took pictures where the Nobel Prize is awarded. Jewish Norway was woven throughout. We made it in time for services, the Dvar Torah, a Bat Mitzvah (what an unexpected treat) and Kiddush and then met the Chabad Rabbi. The tour ended with a visit to Vigeland Park and sculptures. Not to be missed. It was an excellent day and I highly recommend the tour.Dr. Beverley Freedman|

|Your walking tour was a highlight of our trip, something we’ll be sure to note on Cruise Critic when we return.Yours, Ann and Bob|
We had a wonderful time and we are so grateful to you for meeting us and showing us around. Also the pictures are marvelous – a good memory of a fabulous day.
Linda & Justin from US
We are safely back in Toronto and recovering from our jet-lag.
Our hearts and minds are filled with memories of beautiful Norwegian fjords seen during our cruise. This result was fully expected – after all that’s why we went to Norway.
What was unexpected was the wonderful Shabbat and Sunday we spent in Oslo. We had been warned by friends that Oslo was expensive (true) and that it was a cold uninviting city with nothing to see (not true). Rami you showed us what a beautiful city Oslo is. Before we ever met you, you asked questions about us, about what interested us and what we would like to see. You listened to our information, did research and planned a wonderful customized tour just for us. You came to see us in the hotel before Shabbat and gave us an Oslo orientation with suggestions where to walk on Shabbat.
On Sunday you chauffeured us to the synagogue, and took us on a wonderful walking tour showing us a mixture of pure new Norwegian architecture (the Opera House) as well as historic Oslo with a tour of the fortress. You incorporated our Jewish interest with information and stops related to the Holocaust. And when you had already exceeded the planned tour, you took us on a personal driving tour to places that we would never have been able to get to in our short visit, and showed us things beyond walking distance that would have taken us several days to accomplish on our own time.
Rami, we had a wonderful time and tour with you in Oslo – you made our visit in Oslo special going far above what was expected.

Thanks to you as our guide and professional phototour “tutor” in Oslo we got in sinc with the beautiful city very fast. You showed us many hidden corners and the walk-around you prepared in detail was one of the very best we ever had. The whole city and 1000 years of history in only five hours!
We spent the remaining four days exploring the more well-known spots and we could always refer to what we saw with you on the first day.
Many thanks and all the best
