A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful experience and Christiaane Is a very knowledgeable tour guide. Very personable and welcoming to both my wife and I. She shares her knowledge so that you have a greater understanding of the history of the areas visited. If there were a higher rating she would achieve it. Recommend highly to experience Norway away from the city and see the wonderful nature one can experience. We would recommend Christiaane for any tour due to our fascinating experience.
