15 of us had a wonderful time with Mr. Igvars and his associates. We were stopping for 8 hours at Geiranger from a cruise ship. The process and communication with him were super easy. He is easy going, accommodating, fun, and professional. We went places that other big bus tours were not able to go. We had delicious local food prepared by Igvars and his associates. It was a very memorable experience for all of us. Beautiful weather helped too. Thank you, Igy!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You being our first big griup and never will be least:))))

From the moment you meet Igvars, you know you are in for something special. Within the first few moments, you realize that everything that was planned for this tour will be done........and then there are the stops along the way to make sure that all of your needs are met. This was a wonderful tour. We saw more than anyone we met on the ship saw.........and the order in which he presented Alesund kept building on the knowledge of the last place..... Seeing this wonderful city with Igvars was wonderful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Amaizing time together:)))

Our tour with Igvars was a highlight of our travels in Norway. Our cruise schedule changed but he made the necessary time change and arrived on-time. We felt that we had made a new friend who shared all the highlights that ship tours cover but added so much more! When the crowds were on the big busses we were enjoying a picnic in the sun by a beautiful waterfall. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to experience more than a cookie-cutter tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy to host!

Fabulous! We have previously visited Sognefjord and Naerøyfjord (which we had organised on our own). We are so glad we decided on this tour. The tour with Igvars to Geiranger fjord, lunch overlooking Geiranger, 1500 m viewpoint and other viewpoints surpassed the earlier fjords. Igvars is very personable. He shared interesting pieces of information and also gave us time to savour the scenery. He organised the ferry trips, snacks, light lunch and toilet breaks very well. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Really enjoyed our trip with You:) greetings to Sydney

Would I recommend Igvars for a private tour? Yes I would, 100% and more. Igvars went over and beyond to provide us with the knowledge and the history of Geiranger. He made us feel very comfortable as though we have had known him forever. He is very comical and funny and so am I. We hit it off from the start. Don't be surprise when you see him because he is 6'7" slim and kind of cute. Four women from GA, AL and FL never dreamed we would be in the middle of Norway having a picnic. Thanks Igvars!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are my best Oscar 2018 candidates ...and great people :))) You are in my heart!

Igvars gave us an excellent tour at our own pace, as my mom is in an wheel chair. He even provided two cars as he thought the van would not be comfortable for our group. Igvars went well above and beyond and we would highly recommend taking a tour with him.

Definitely one of the best tours taken, Igvars is extremely intelligent, funny and flexible. He had made his way out for us to enjoy the tours and have gone the extra miles to conduct last minute changes in order to suite our needs, if you are traveling to Norway, Igvars without question is the first choice to consider without any regrets.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Reading and smiling. Thank You for sharing 2 days with me. My pleasure. See You in Dubai :))) If need speed down- rise Your hand! :))))

It's really a great tour and we're very happy to have a chance to visit Alesund and other top attractions with him, Igvars. He is really a nice guy, kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. The tour and accommodation is really good, well prepared, good arrangement, above our expectation. Although, it's raining season during our visit, but he can manage the schedule to have a good day and be able to visit all around, and we can take picture wherever we want, no rush. I'd be definitely recommended this tour

Igvars met us promptly at our ship! He is very tall and thin and easy to spot. He had a very comfortable car for the three of us and we saw SO much while in Alesund. This tour was a highlight of our trip. We enjoyed the tunnels, vistas and various stops. The coffee shop was excellent and his picnic was more than expected. He catered to my gluten free needs and we enjoyed grilled meatballs, vegetables and a wonderful view. He had us back in town with a bit of time to explore before leaving.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was really great to have similar people who inside showing outside same style :))) my pleasure to have You in my life

Igvars was an authentic, helpful guide who gave us a unique opportunity to see the parts of Alesund which we wouldn't have seen without him. He was punctual and gauged our interests well and gave us a memorable day with beautiful views. He went above and beyond for us and even solved some minor issues we had (dead batteries, transportation to the aquarium and back). We felt comfortable with him and had a wonderful day. Highly recommend if you want to spend the day with a genuine and caring guide

We had the wonderful trip to to Geiranger fjords and Trollstigen with Igvar as our guide. He made sure we had many stops to enjoy nature to the fullest (making the experience even better) and also made the lunch picnic an exhilarating experience, eating in the lap of nature. We hope to come back to Alesund sometime :).
