What people are saying about Bergen

When we arrived at the ship dock, we had our bar code and pass ready. But they did not have us on their list. At first they refused to let us on. We spent 10 minutes talking and finally we could board. This bad communication was disturbing and started the trip in a poor way. The sites were beautiful and interesting. Half way through the ship lost one engine, it our return was delayed 50 minutes.

This tour is a great way to see the diverse landscape of Norway in a complete package; Fjords, Mountains, coastal villages. Given that we took the tour in February meant no large crowds with plenty of space to roam around the boat for viewing and pictures. Just had some weather to contend with but was to be expected. Our guide Sonia was great. Very knowledgeable, personable and informative.

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..
