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!

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!

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 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.
