Sonya was very knowledgeable and helpful. But - since it was raining - we did not follow the planned itinerary and - instead - she drove us to the numerous interesting highlights of Trondheim and its surroundings, with a short walk through the old town, ending up at the revolving restaurant on the TV tower, which provides excellent views of the city (food and service not so good, but this should not reflect on Sonya!).
Sonya was engaging and informative about not only the history of Trondheim and Norway of 1,000 years ago but also of modern times. The visit to the WWII fortifications and the role it played in the war was fascinating and an unknown part of history to us. The tour is a great balance of old and new. Through Sonya we were able to an excellent sense of culture and history through her passion for these topics.

Our group of 5 had the pleasure of booking a tour of Trondheim with Sonya in July 2019. She tailored the tour to our interests, specifically including important Jewish sites. Sonya is knowledgeable, personable and enthusiastic. We very much enjoyed our time with her and highly recommend her as a guide while you are in Trondheim.

Six of us departed our cruise ship in Trondheim and were given a fantastic day of touring of the Trondheim area by Sonya. We saw sites that nobody else on the ship visited. Sonya arranged for a special showing of the Hegra Fortress among other stops. Sonya's knowledge of the historical significance and local interpretation of Norwegian society was well founded. She used her studies as a history major to great advantage. All of us would strongly recommend Sonya as a guide for Trondheim and this area.

We loved our tour of Trondheim with Sonya. We were there to find old family history locations and to get to know the city. We had sent her some locations, and she came through with more family history. She arranged a car for the day and included a wonderful lunch with a 360 degree view of beautiful Trondheim. Her knowledge of the city and surrounding area is extensive and we learned so much. We have left Trondheim with a feeling that we know the city well. We highly recommend this experience.

Sonya took our family of 8 on a city tour and visit to the Norwegian Village in her van. She was prompt, knowlegeable and told us great stories from the history of Norway. She patiently answered our many question and was very sensitive to our needs. While talking to us about the history she stopped near a park playground so our granddaughter could have some play time. We had a great time with Sonya and would give her the highest ratings.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nancy, It was really nice to spend the day sharing Trondheim with you and your family and I am glad that you all will now carry on with fond memories of your anniversary trip. All the best to you, Sonya

Excellent tour---very informative, focusing on Troudheim's Jewish heritage. The guide was excellent and made sure we saw it all. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Also, the guide at the synagogue and Jewish museum was very good. Our only surprise (for me and the guide) was when we found out that she was not Jewish. Again, both the guide and tour were excellent. I highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Arnie, I am very glad that you enjoyed the tour and that you would recommend it to future travelers as well. I will make sure to pass your kind words on to the guide. Warm regards, Sonya

My husband, 9 year old son and I booked Sonya for a 3 hour tour in Trondheim. We were on a mission to research geneaology/family information and Sonya totally delivered! We emailed her information ahead of time and she independently found so much info, ready for our day together. She is fluent in English and Norwegian-translated for us seamlessly. Sonya's also passionate about history and has traveled extensively so can share interesting connections and information. Highly recommended!
