Solveig was great! She gave us an exceptional tour of Bergen and Mount Floien. There were 6 of us, and she was very patient with all of our questions and making sure we were all heading in the right direction. Of our 4 tours in Norway, this was everyone's favorite.

Solveig was a marvelous guide, and the hike we took at Mt. Floien was a perfect way to acquaint ourselves better with an overview of the Bergen area, as well as learning much historical information about the Bergen area. Solveig was prompt, courteous, respectful, very astute as to our interests and hiking abilities, and very informative and friendly. Spending four hours with her was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in the Bergen area. I would recommend both Solveig and the Mt. Floien tour highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for recommending my tour, Kristine. I thoroughly enjoyed our walk together. Best wishes to you all. Solveig

Solvieg provided a magic 3 hours of Bergen's history and how this interfaced with a broader history of Norway. There was a blend of new and old with the buildings providing the backdrop for the story. Her depth of knowledge helped bring the history to life.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful feed-back and interesting questions en route. Wishing you all the best, Solveig.

We spent our last day in Norway on this tour. When we arrived in Bergen there were four cruise ships and tourists swarming everywhere. I thought I would hate it here but today I fell in love with Bergen and I it is now my favorite city in Norway. Our guide got us right out of the chaos and found a quiet oasis in this amazing city. We walked through quiet passages and hidden forests where I cannot wait to return. I definitely recommend this guide and her fabulous tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful recommendation of my Hike at Mount Floien tour, Annette. It was truly a magical light in the forest that day. Welcome back any time. Wishing you all the best, Solveig.

Solveig is an amazing and extremely personable tour guide. There were 8 of us -- she and a driver picked us up at our cruise ship and the entire day was absolutely perfect. She showed us all of the highlights of Bergen -- along with very knowledgable insights about everything we saw. We had asked her to join us for lunch -- she chose a wonderful restaurant which was terrific. Taking us back to the ship, she shared more local info along the way. Please choose Solveig -- she's positively the BEST guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for booking my tour and your heartwarming appreciation of the tour, Ron. I greatly enjoyed spending time with you all and nothing like a lunch for getting to know one an other better and more in depth conversation. Thank you. All the Best, Solveig

Solveig did an excellent job in escorting our group of 6 thru the city of Bergen. Her attention to details was excellent to even pre-purchasing the transit passes for the day. She provided excellent background and historical context for the sites of the city. The walking route was well planned, we saw very much during the 6+ hours of sightseeing, and ended the day back by the ship. It was an excellent day and all the members of the Group can enthusiastically endorse Solveig as a tour guide for Bergen.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful recommendation! I greatly enjoyed guiding you all through Bergen's historic and more modern areas. The 7 hrs went like a breeze. Thank you for enriching my day. Best wishes to you all :) Solveig

Excellent tour by knowledgeable local guide. A wonderful experience that we recommend highly. It was expensive but in comparison to the excursions that we purchased through the Cruise company (Viking), this was far better value for the money spent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great recommendation! I very much enjoyed spending the day with you and your lovely wife. I hope your flight to London was on time in spite of the snowy weather. Wishing you all the best, Solveig
