Very interesting

Nice tour and very interesting. We were the only ones there and it was a nice day. The locations were well chosen and one would never have found them alone. What they said was easy to understand. I would recommend the tour if you are interested in Vikings.

Very interesting and different from the usual tours. However the guide lacks dynamism and makes the tour boring towards the end.
