Martin, our guide was simply amazing!!! We have travelled the world and have always booked excursions with guides and he is one of BEST we had; very knowledgeable, eloquent, Professional with perfect English and kind. He possesses a great wealth of knowledge about the city of Bergen, the country of Norway and he made our tour so interesting that we screamed for more ( on the inside) and couldn’t believe it was over (after 2.5 hours walking) despite the pouring rain!!! Look no further.

Maria_G, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Martin was excellent! He brought many visual aids to help us imagine how life was in the 17th and 18th centuries in Bergen.
We walked 2 to 3 miles throughout various areas of the city. It was not a difficult walk, and the pace was perfect for all to catch up.
The tour was 2 hours and just the right amount of time to kept everyone’s interest. His accounts were of great interest historically and in today’s contemporary environment. Martin also gave us several restaurant and shopping recommendations. Overall it was a great tour, and I can highly recommend.

Short story - was a couple of well-spent hours. Martin was an excellent guide and provided a lot of historical background and even photos to enhance the experience. He spoke clearly and was very easy to hear during the entire tour, and welcomed questions. His coffee shop recommendation was great!
Highly recommendable city tour

Guide’s pace was great. He was extremely knowledgeable. I recommend this excursion. Use Martin for Bergen.
Engaging and worth it!
Earl_H, Jun 2022
Our tour guide was amazing! I don’t remember his name, but he was from Germany. He was so knowledgeable, funny without trying too hard, and knew answers to any question we asked. He made Bergen come alive. We have been on several walking tours, and this one was probably our favorite. Definitely worth more than the $21/person that we payed.
