Mr. Liang, our tour guide from Fjordday AS is a very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable person. He speaks English, Mandarin and Norwegian. We booked his tour today on 27th November 2023 and he picked us up from our hotel to Flam. His tour is super flexible as he will always stop his car along the journey to Flam in order for us to take some amazing photos and videos. If you are not familiar with the tourist attractions around Bergen and Flam, you can always ask for his opinions so that he can adjust and arrange the attractions for you around the area. He always explain to us the history around the tourist attractions. He even drop us off in Gudvangen so that we are able to experience the Flam Cruise from Gudvangen to Flam and Mr. Liang will wait for us in Flam and bring us around the beautiful town. We enjoyed a lot in his trip and we would recommend him to all of you. Once u have booked his trip, pls contact him via whatsapp immediately so he can arrange and offer u many good opinion

All good, despite the fact that due to construction there were changes to part of the train journey on the way there and back. For the rest, it is an excursion that is very worthwhile, and with precise instructions.

Very Nice ….. it is too easy than i anticipated for my first experience in self traveling aboard ☺️. Easy, Cozy and well worth a visit. The schedule is fit for all activities and attractions place.

Best tour done in Norway! It's worth paying the price. The only detail I recommend would be to check the weather before the tour as I went through a very foggy section.

Superb day to discover the fjords and the Flam train
