Great well organized tour. Our Help very helpful. We visited very beautiful places. There was a mishap on returning as the train hit cows that had entered a tunnel. For this reason we returned later than expected .... but it was not predictable and it is certainly not the fault of the tour operator. The fjord is beautiful!

On a trip to Bergen we could not get our Bergen Card. When the tourist office was closed. After returning home we contacted GetYourGuide and we got all the money back

Well organized and we went to a lot of information about Norway and the fantastic nature
