I had a spectacular trip through the country of Norway. Tusen Takk Tricia!!! You made my first international (solo) trip everything it could be and more! The route worked out perfectly and the activities were spot on for what I was looking to see and do.

I had a spectacular trip through the country of Norway. Tusen Takk Tricia!!! You made my first international (solo) trip everything it could be and more! The route worked out perfectly and the activities were spot on for what I was looking to see and do. The trip plan went so well and removed much of the stress that may happen, for me at least, with planning everything myself. Tricia's knowledge of Norway and recommendations all came together to make for a smooth, easy to navigate itinerary. I couldn't have asked for more. She checked in to make sure I was well on my way and was super supportive and responsive if/when I did call for help. I can't recommend using kimkim, and Tricia enough and will tell everyone and anyone the same.

Hotel Reviews
Thon Hotel Terminus
Oslo

Great location, enormous breakfast buffet, comfortable bed. A little noisy into the night but not too bad. Jet lag had me up anyway. I did change my room to the 2nd floor with a window which happen to be on a bus route. The 1st room on the 6th floor would've been much quieter but the view was non-existent.

Authenticity & Character
It was a typical hotel which was all I needed here.

Quaint, unbelievably quiet, comfortable bed, nice breakfast and functional room with an unchanged classic charming style. Cool place to stay in this old sleepy town. Close to trails and good access to Flam. Good restaurant on the grounds too and the view of the fjord was awesome!

Upscale, busy popular hotel. The location doesn't get much better than this. Beds were comfortable and the room was quiet from all sides. This is classic Bergen in all it's history.

Bergen Walking Tour With a Local Guide
Bergen

I so very much enjoyed this walking tour with John. I think we covered the whole city in a matter of 2-3 hours! He imparted his vast knowledge of his hometown everywhere we went with great suggestions to take in all of Bergen following the tour. I love Bergen, Norway!

Oslo Food Trail With a Local Guide
Oslo

I enjoyed this tour around the city eating some local foods Oslo is known for. Walking and talking with Stig through his favorite parts of his hometown, eating the local treats along the way was truly a good time. Go Liverpool! :)

Heritage Taste Fjordsafari

This unique experience was fun. Our guide, Erick (apologize for any misspelling here) was awesome on this tour. Zooming around the fjords, learning interesting, sometimes fascinating things about the history of the people who settled in and around the area.

So much fun to read through your reviews, Seth! Thanks so much!!
You were a joy to chat with throughout planning and during your stay. You handled your first international solo trip like a pro. I'm already looking forward to your next visit...and continuing to practice the Norwegian language with you :-D

Lykke til med fremtidige reiser!

Tusen hjertelig takk,
