The pickup is punctual and the driver give us some inside about Norway. It’s great pleasure to meet up with nice tour guide Paul and Po (hopefully I spell the name correctly). It’s great trip throughout the whole journey for this private trip especially when you’re traveling with family and dragging with luggages. Overall great experience.

This trip is wonderful, because we could see Norwegian landscape in full. Whether it was from car or from the ship. We have also opportunity to taste goat cheese and goat salami. Frode was excellent guide. He knows a lot about every part of our way. We spent wonderful 11 hours with him. We recommend this trip to every one.

It was a great trip. All the tickets were taken care of and going to the different modes of transportation was easy. I was even able to upgrade my overnight train seat to Oslo to a sleeper car and get some good night sleep. I did this at the train station when I boarded.

The trip was absolutely wonderful. Guide Gimndes - Dziky was very friendly, informed and he showed us many new things. We spend 11 hours with him.

Great experience to get to know the Norwegian fjords and the landscapes of the mountains in a tour in all means of locomotion.
