The tour was exactly as publicised and gave us a great overview of Tromso and the surrounding area, its history and economy. The tour guide's English was great and she didn't shy away from difficult questions about hunting and racial differences. By walking around the city, we got a good idea of where to visit on our own later.

We had a great time with Bernard as our guide. He brought the city to life - through his background and history he was able to share with us the town he fell in love with while at the University. I would highly recommend making time for a Historical City Walk with Bernard!
Visite essentielle à faire en début de séjour !

Wir hatten einen sehr netten deutschen Auswanderer, der uns durch Tromsø und das Polarmuseeum führte. Es war sehr interessant und auch lustig zugleich. Möchte hier nicht zuviel verraten, sonst bucht es keiner mehr. Es ist aber definitiv die 2,5 Stunden wert. Und wenn wir das nächste Mal nach Tromsø kommen, dann ganz bestimmt um den 06. Februar besten den Touristenführer fragen warum :-
