Christiaane was amazing! She is so knowledgeable but also so kind and caring. I was worried that my mother would have trouble walking or standing through the tour, and Chris carried a chair for her to sit on as we talked in the museum. She's passionate about the subject she's showing us, but also passionate about her guests enjoying it. She even showed us a fun 'locals only' mountain lodge where we had hot cocoa and apple cake.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Suzanne, Thank you so much - it was lovely to be with and your mother today and a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to our tour together to the fjords on Tuesday - enjoy your day tomorrow - my warmest regards to your mother and you. Chris

Christianne was amazing! From the moment we met her, our group of 9 connected with her. She is passionate about her city (and country) and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. She has a Masters degree in history and was so generous in sharing her knowledge with us. Our tour was a city walking tour but she suggested our short stay would be incomplete without the Viking museum, so she adapted the tour and was so right! We were so happy with the tour. She crammed as much as she could into our short stay. Will be back:)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elana, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! I enjoyed enormously to be with you and the group - you are amazing people. Looking forward to seeing you again- have a safe travel home All the best to all of you Chris

My family and I had a wonderful, custom tour of Oslo with Christiaane and our driver, Alex. Chris met us at the port on time. She knew exactly when to go to each venue to avoid the crowds and make the most of our time. We loved the Radhuset (Nobel Peace Prize hall) and the art there. The highlights were The Viking Ship Museum and Akershus Fortress and Resistance Museum. Chris had the best stories and details about each place. Her history knowledge is wonderful and very entertaining. Great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura Thanks so very much for your feedback I’m very happy you enjoyed the tour in Oslo Kind regards Chris

We wanted to say how very much we enjoyed our six hour walking tour with Christiaane in Oslo on June 3 Christiaane is not only delightful but very very knowledgeable. We learned so much about Norway all day: the guide made everything interesting and fun. Christiaane also helped us buy Ballet tickets and make a dinner reservation at the Opera house the same day! We highly recommend this tour, walking along the Aker River and into the center of Oslo! And we highly highly recommend Christiaane!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosemary and Chris Thank you so much for your wonderful words! I had a very enjoyable day with you two as well- we had lovely conversation about nature and history, that I didn’t realise how fast the 6 hours past. Hopefully we will meet again I wish great hiking in the west cost of Norway and all the best Christiaane

We had 8 people in our group, including one with a walker. Christiaane was good at accommodating our needs. She included the City Hall tour into our "more distant" request, because we had missed it the day before. We saw both the Viking museum and the Sculpture park. The latter could have used more time, but we still got a very good overview of the outer areas of the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elaine Thanks so much for your feedback Best regards Christiaane

We were EXTREMELY fortunate to have had Chris as our guide today. We benefited from the depth of her knowledge and her genuine desire to impart as much as we could absorb. She was very well acquainted with the sites we visited and her commentary enriched our experience. Aside from all of this, she is a really lovely and kind person. We would definitely give her the highest rating and recommend her to any person or group that wants to go beyond the superficial and genuinely explore a new culture or city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Abby Thank so much for your wonderful feedback- I really felt privileged to be in your company today. It was really very enjoyable to be with you wonderful people. Looking forward to seeing you again. Give me regards to Rose, Raynee and Alan Have a great journey Chris

Best professional and charming guide.We had a fantastic day tour by Christianne, who took us all over Oslo. She is an expert in the history of Norway and passed it through very professionally and lively. We learned so much !! We also asked for understanding architecture and art in Oslo, and she did this brilliantly.We would give her a higher rating if possible. It was our best day in Norway, everything on the tour was perfect ! Hope to travel with her again in the future !

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!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Paige. Thanks very much for you feedback, it’s means a lot to me. I’m so very happy we managed to do the tour in the short time we had and that you feel that you learned about the history of the country . Kindest regards Christiaane

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Kenny It was wonderful to have you and you wife as guests visiting my country. Hopefully we will meet again Again many thanks and all the best to you and your family- Christiaane

SUPERB!!! Christianne is the consummate professional. She went out of her to meet our particular needs and provide us with a wonderful experience. Only complaint is that our time with her was far too short. The more we learned, the longer we wanted to continue our time with her. She is extremely knowledgeable, fun to work with, and very engaging company. You'll be very happy you booked with Christianne. We are.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the wonderful ratings- it was all my pleasure to be working with you and this exciting assignment. Looking forward to hear more about the exhibition in January All the best Christiaane

Date: Jun 17/16

Chris did a fabulous job of helping us (7pl) see the area where our ancestors originated from before immigrating to US/Canada. The Beyond Oslo-A tour to Askeland & Risor was truly a wonderful day! Chris asked us questions & then did research for us on her trusty ipad as we travelled the highway to the area. She even asked around & found out what happened to the old cemetery (mid 1800's)in Apland and she gave us websites to research once we were back in Canada to try to obtain more history of our ancestors

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shirely, Thank you so much for your comments and rating. I was very happy to help you and your family finding information about your ancestors. All the best to you and your family. Best regards Chris

Great tour. Christiane tailored her Oslo tour to our needs. She had a car and driver, Tom, which made it a lot easier for us since we can't walk long distances. We saw some of the Oslo government area and a lot of waterfront and mountainous areas of Oslo city. She took us to the Amundsen Museum, which is great since a friend of mine and I discuss Antarctic expeditions. The tour ended by the Oslo Opera House, which is really interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gerald, Thanks so much for you great comment. I hope you will enjoy the rest of your stay in Norway. Please give my regards to you dear wife. All the best Christiaane.
