A Recent Review of this tour

We had an excellent tour with Christiaane about WWII and the Jewish people of Norway! Christiaane shared many details about it all. She also did a great job of presently LOTS of facts even when some weren't favorable. The Resistance Museum she took us to was very interesting. She added details while also moving us through at a good pace! We were late meeting Christiaane and then went to the wrong place yet she responded perfectly and then adjusted the tour to get the most out of the time we had!
