Valentina PetrovaUnited States
Nature is spectacular all along the route of the tour. I paid 200 Euros extra because there were 6 of us and she had to rent another van. Our guide was friendly but she wasn't as forthcoming with information as we expected given that we had a couple of hours to kill driving up and back from the fjord. She covered the basics you'd find in a tour book. I am grateful that she showed me a neat hotel and a hiking trail while the rest went on a boat ride. She had other business and didn't go with them.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Valentina, I am glad to hear from you again. I hoped I surprised you with the collection of rare cars in the hotel in Geiranger, but probably not enough. I was sorry to hear that you did not get enough information on the way back to the hotel. Oh, why didn`t you ask me questions? Despite I like to talk, I was rather quiet, because I noticed that tired guests wanted to sleep. I still don`t know if I should continue to tell my stories in such cases. Anyway, thank you for the feedback that made me think.

Radmyla was a fantastic guide! She made our day in Alesund and the Viking Islands fascinating, educational, fun, and . . . perfect! She is extremely knowledgeable about Norway and this area, and she was sensitive to our needs, my mother's limited walking ability, and went the extra mile to make our experience extra special. We are excited to have her for our guide again tomorrow!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review, Susie, it was my pleasure to be your guide in my charming Ålesund. I hope your beautiful photos will give you good memories about out excursion. Warm regards Radmyla
Carol YangUnited States
Radmyla is great! She met us right by our cruise on time, and her car fits 6 of us well. She is so familiar with Alesund and took us to visit most of the highlights there. She focus on lots details of the trip and even knew where is the best spots to take pictures for individuals and for the family. She also knew the schedule of all the other big tour buses so we avoid the big traffic and crowd most of time. Our family had a wonderful time with Radmyla and it is an unforgettable private tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol, thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was pleasure to show you my charming city. Hope to see you again in some of Norwegian ports! Warm regards, Radmyla
Very good tour. A little short but it gave us an overview of Alesund.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A little short tour? I think for a walking, 2 hours is enough, if longer - people can get tired. I am agree that for learning more about city/town/country, tourists should choose at least 3-5hours Sightseeing tours. Welcome back! Radmyla
George S.Boca Raton, FL, United States
Our day with Radmyla was terrific. She is enthusiastic in her touring and her love of Alesund and its beautiful scenery was evident. We went to sites no other tour visits and the old bridges were well worth the drive. Her descriptions of the sights and infectious admiration of the scenery was great. Stories of what once were and how they are now were great. She has a command of the city history and willingly shared it in addition to providing answers to all questions. I strongly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you George for your warm review, I was happy to show you my beautiful Norway. I will send you pictures as good memories about the tour in the most beautiful city in Norway - Ålesund. Warm regards Radmyla

Sarah F.United States
Radmyla is a very aware and considerate guide. We use canes and walk fairly slowly and need to sit every now and then. Her knowledge is extensive and her demeanor is professional as well as warm. She even dropped us off at the sushi restaurant in Ålesund for lunch! It was a delightful half-day tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice review, Sarah! Yes, what can be better than a tour in your own tempo. You are right, we shouldn`t be in a hurry, we need to enjoy our travelings. Welcome back to the Norwegian fjords! Warm regards Radmyla
Sonia C.United States
Radmyla was beyond outstanding. She was personable, engaging, informative, entertaining (my three children under the age of 10 LOVED her), and she knew all the best spots to take us. Spending the day with Radmyla was the absolute highlight of our trip, and I cannot recommend her tour highly enough. It was worth every penny, and we feel extremely lucky to have experienced Geiranger through her eyes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh, dear Sonia, thank you so much for your brilliant review. Families like yours - are just dream for any guides: well organized, tolerant, patient, kind! Say hello to the boys, they are so sweet and well-mannerd. Let me know if you get your pictures. Warm regards Radmyla
Patricia HarrisonUnited States
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Radmyla was one of the best tour guides we have ever used. She loves Norway and is eager to show you around. We felt like we were family/old friends and she was showing us her home. Her timing was great whether it was getting ahead of the crowds or getting on the ferry (One of the best ferry rides ever). It was a jam packed day, but when we left, we were in love with Norway.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tusen hjertelig takk! Thank you so much, Pat, for your excellent review! It encourages me to create new unique tours and new services. I look forward to meeting you next year in my beautiful Norway!
Michael SwiftUnited States
We enjoyed our day touring Alesund and the surrounding islands. Radmyla was able to show is several interesting sties and also gave us good information of the area and Norway. Radmyla has a very friendly personality and keeps the tour fun. We really enjoyed the view from the tall hill overlooking Alesud. The view was spectacular. She also let us taste some local Norway food that was interesting and tasty. If i am ever back in the area I would use Radmyla again as she is a very good tor guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Michael for your warm review, our tour was pleasure for me. Have a nice cruise and hope to see you again on the beautiful fjords. Say hello to Leslie! Regards Radmyla
Susan SchwartzUnited States
What a spectacular guide Myla is. Her knowledge is impressive. Her English is superb. And, she has a sparkling personality that will make your day. We took 2 tours with her. One in Geiranger and one in Alesund. They were the highlights of our cruise. We have taken numerous Tours by Locals excursions. Myla is by far the best of many excellent experiences.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan so much for your warm review. It was very happy to have tours with such positive and well-organized people. I will send you some pictures from our tours. Humans memories are not reliable as photos. I wish you just good travel-memories about new destinations. Warm regards Radmyla
Arnold BermanBoynton Beach, FLORIDA, United States
Radmyla was excellent and the car tour seemed very comprehensive. Radmyla was very solicitous and helpful re my wife's disability. Radmyla was very excited about all the beauty she shared with us, and it was beautiful. The tour was was topped off by a delicious lunch of local Norway food, which Radmyla prepared herself. My wife and I had a great time and very much enjoyed meeting and being with Radmyla. She was great! Thank you Radmyla.

Victor EricksonUnited States
We enjoyed a great tour of Alesund with Radmyla. One of our party of 4 uses a wheelchair and Myla was very accommodating to her needs. She was very knowledgeable, fluent in English, and planned visits to the most important sites in Alsund with consideration for the timetables of the tour busses. And she was a very good driver. We would highly recommend her for a private tour. Thanks Myla!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Victor! Thank you so much for your pleasant review. I had lovely time guiding you. Hope to meet you again in Norway, here is so many place to discover! Best regards, Radmyla

This walking tour of Alesund with Radmyla "Myla" was one of the highlights of our trip! She was punctual, courteous and very professional. She provided a wonderful overview of the city with history and local stories. The pace of the walk was good and we truly felt we had covered all of the major sites of the city and more. We could feel the passion that she has for her city and her goal of making sure we enjoyed visiting her city. We would highly recommend Radmyla "Myla" if you plan to visit Alesund.
