A Recent Review of this tour

Elisabeth was outstanding. I have taken a day tour with her before so was very happy to have her take me on a tour this time as well. She is interesting and lovely. Her private tour for me was just what I wanted to do, and she planned very well for it. I wanted to do the zip line at Holmenkollen Ski Jump and she thought ahead and made reservations for me, even though I am 87 years old she made it happen! She is well organized and thoughtful. I highly recommend her. Paul Dougherty
