Linda had to plan our trip not once but three times thanks to COVID. It was well worth the wait! The best part for us was the local touch. While other folks walked around in groups of 20 struggling to hear one guide tell stories, our family had one guide all to ourselves. They provided great insight and a personal touch I don't think we would have had with another company. read more

Perfect location, great breakfast. The rooms were a bit small and could use some updating.

The view from the hotel was fantastic! But the hotel itself is old and lacking any amenities. If you know that going in, you'll be fine. The owner is lovely and attentive.

Vilde was lovely - lots of great history of Bergen as well as tips for just about anything we wanted to do.

Scenic Boat Trip to Fjærland
Balestrand

Captain Tor was fantastic. He made sure each of us was able to see or do something we wanted or didn't even know we wanted. My son had a special request to fish and he let him cast a little bit even though we weren't on a fishing cruise. He let my daughter drive - something she was nervous about at first but ultimately loved.

It was amazing how much Stig knew about Oslo's history. He was very thoughtful about including our whole family in the experience and even sent a photo after the tour was over.
