The tour with our guide Andrea was really great. He is extremely well informed about the beautiful and interesting photo spots (including those that don't appear in every Instagram & Co story, and he knows a lot about the region and its history. However, the coordination on the part of the organizer could be optimized to the effect that where the customer is based in Lofoten is taken into account when booking.We were staying at Leknes and had to drive to the meeting point in Svolvaer, the local guide could have picked us up there as he lives in the area!I had this at the Asked which hotel we should be picked up from, but you as the organizer didn't respond to this. It's a shame for everyone!

Very nice excursion with our guide Eric. Very good stories and explanations about Lofoten Islands, people living there, animals and nature. Eric is a very nice person, passionated, interesting to listen to and ready to answer to all questions. Very good spots for photographs. I recommend this amazing tour. Thanks! Marie-Claire B

It was an incredibly entertaining trip with a super nice guide Eric, who drove us to the most beautiful spots on Lofoten and was able to tell us very interesting things about the area and the inhabitants. I would recommend this tour to anyone and would do it again and again!

What an amazing tour! Andrea was a great guide! He was very nice and had lots of information about the islands. The route he prepared was very beautiful and the snacks were a really nice touch. His spanish was very good too. I highly recommend this tour.

The tour driver was really nice and took us to some great places, all the famous ones plus others. He also responded to the interests of the group, so I would definitely recommend the tour if you want to see a lot of the islands in a short time!
