Great well organized tour. Our Help very helpful. We visited very beautiful places. There was a mishap on returning as the train hit cows that had entered a tunnel. For this reason we returned later than expected .... but it was not predictable and it is certainly not the fault of the tour operator. The fjord is beautiful!

Frode was a really nice guide!! knows alot and gave us nice tips for every part of the journey!! amazing views!! relaxing day, most of the time sitting down inside the car, train or boat! buy a quick lunch and go to a viewpoint before going to the ferry, it was spectacular!

This tour is a must for someone who wants to spend 1 day in Bergen. The nature is so wild, the hills & mountains so steep, creating waterfalls everywhere, & the people so kind, helpful & cooperative..

Well organized and we went to a lot of information about Norway and the fantastic nature
