Guide-A was started by Norwegian architect Henning Nielsen, who also works in the architectural office of GREP arkitektkontor in Oslo. The aim of Guide-A is to give our customers an architect's view of modern Norwegian architecture, relating new buildings and urban developments both to the current international architectural scene, and to relevant aspects of Norwegian culture and history.


Guide-A offers a wide range of ready-to-book tours, but we are always happy to provide custom made programs for our clients, with subjects like for instance waterfront developments, environmental projects, urban transformation, or any subject or type of project that the client is interested in.


Although based in Oslo, Guide-A arranges tours all over Norway, usually starting or ending in Oslo. Tours in Norway almost invariably offer spectacular scenery between architectural sights, and we strive to show the best combination of nature and culture.


All tours are guided by professionals, with relevant education as architects and/or art historians. Local knowledge and insight is our greatest strength. We want to give you the whole story, not just show nice buildings. Over the years, Guide-A has arranged more than 100 tours for groups from 2 to 120 persons, and our comprehensive experience is the best basis for a successful visit.


We are happy to provide our customers with information about transport, accomodation, as well as dining & wining, and will assist as far as possible with reservations.
