Enjoyed our tour and were able to see all the main sights thanks to a hassle free tour with our guide Frode. He had a lot of information to share and was very helpful. Having him to drive us around saved a lot of time. Highly recommended

Our driver/guide, vehicles including the ferry and the sites were all amazing! It was a good idea the we did the tour the other way around, we started with the train to Flam then the cruise to Gudvangen. It seemed like we avoided the usual crowd. :)

The trip was excellent from start to end. The pick up was on time and the everywhere we were driven safely and in timely manner. Matt was good at communicating and passed us good information about the various places we visited. The places were awesome and my family enjoyed it thoroughly!

We booked this tour because we wanted a private tour to the Dale of Norway Factory and this seemed to be the best way to get there. And it was a perfect day! Our guide, Ray, showed up exactly on time in an extremely comfortable Mercedes Motor Coach. He was great!! Not only was he an excellent driver and tour guide, but he was willing to take us to the Factory and wait patiently while we spent over an hour shopping. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a private tour!!

Our family had an amazing day w/our guide Igor. He had an incredible depth of knowledge of the area including history, geopolitics, economy, folklore, etc. No question we had went unanswered. Day was flexible with lots of time in the car but scenery was breathtaking. Fjord cruise was the highlight! Train ride was lovely. Would highly recommend. Of note- we had our 4 children along (ages 9,12,14,15)

My tour guide, Bjorn, was beyond excellent. From the moment he picked me up, he even prepare some motion sickness remedy for me. And then right before my train ride, he bought me a local lunch to enjoy during the ride :- Not only that he is a local bergen, he is also well knowledge about all of the local stuff. What I like him about the most is his energy and his personality. I learned a lot about bergen, fjord, culture, history in one day, he really make sure that he fit a lot of sight seeing in one day He happened to be a very talented photographer, he took some of my pictures during this trip, and as a courtesy, he actually email Them to me :-. What an amazing picture. I am so thankful that I found this trip and Got bjorn as my guide. It's definitely worth every penny.

This was the absolute best tour. you could ever take. Our guide, Raivis, was truly amazing! Ask for him if you book this tour! He felt like a part of the family. He picked us up at the hotel, drove us to Gudvangen, via Hotel Stalheim a must see for views where we took the ferry to Flam and then met us. Taking the ferry, even though it cost extra was a must do, it had the most beautiful views. We had lunch told us to get a beer at the bryggerie and then since we had some time before the train to Myrdahl, we went up a very curvy road into the mountains for the most fantastic view of Naeroyafjord. We took the train to Myrdahl, saw wonderful waterfalls...there is a surprise at the most stunning of them and then took the train to Voss. He met us there and we took in another waterfall TLC--forget the song Don't go chasing waterfalls, which was amazing. We all thought this made the trip to Bergen. Also make sure you take the train either from Oslo to Bergen roundtrip or one-way. You will be totally amazed by the views. Raivis was the best tour guide!

It was such a beautiful trip, i highly recommend it. It was a fun trip with my boyfriend, and we have taken in many view that will not be forgotten.

Bergen is a very beautiful country. I would definitely recommend people to go. Our tour guide/driver, Mr Ivan, was indeed a very obliging, honest and helpful man. Thank Jesus that He has blessed us a fantastic guide throughout our whole trip. He is so far the best guide that I have ever met during all my holidays. Highly recommend him to everyone. This is my true and honest comment. He did not pay me to write it.

Ivan was a fantastic guide. If you only have one or two days in the Bergen area, this is a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time. The views in Gudvangen were unbelievable and the train from Flåm was a very special experience. Would definitely recommend.

Just a perfect way to see Bergen, the Fjords and surrounding areas. Having a private guide, spacious vehicle is well worth it. Definitely 5 stars!

Our guide only acted as transfer companion . He didnt give any information like a guide normally does. Plus He was supposed to take us to the hotel stalheim to see the valley but we only passed it . Not happy with his service at all .

Fabulous day tour ! We found our personal guide Bjorne, to offer great insights and history to our 1st visit to the fjords of Norway. The only glitch was some communication with Viator with confirming and understanding the day's itinerary.

We took this tour as an alternative to Norway in a Nutshell. We enjoyed the more private and individualized experience, as well as the added stops along the way Tvindefossen waterfall and UNESCO site at the Stalheim hotel. We were picked up on time and our tour guide was timely and dependable at each and every stop. Everything was organized in advance, which made it all nice and easy for us. Our guide was very nice. A few things to mention: the description makes it seem like lunch in organized at a specific place it is not, you eat on your own in Flåm and it also makes it sound like the cruise around the fjords is included it is not - it is 70 euros additional - although expensive on top of the tour itself, it was the highlight.

This is a useful adjunct or similar replacement to Norway in a Nutshell. You will learn more than the go-it-alone trip. It is pricey but worth it for those who have the interest in a closer look at Norway.

Nice electric boat ride for 2 hours in the Fjords and two 50 minute train rides in the snowy mountains were lovely - but at £1800 plus for four people it seemed way overpriced - our guide Matt wasn't very talkative - not what you expect from a tour guide - he was pretty much a glorified driver.

Nice tour with wonderful sights, however be forewarned when booking this trip! After booking you receive an email confirmation stating that if you want to do the boat ride portion of the trip there is an additional fee, though it clearly states that it is part of the overall itinerary. In addition the last leg of the journey was supposed to be a train ride back to Voss and instead, it was just a very long car ride.

Our tour guide failed to adequately explain anything about the place, etc. It was just a ride from Bergen to board the ship, then picked us up at the end of the train ride to take us back to the hotel. No added info . Definitely below expectations
