The pickup is punctual and the driver give us some inside about Norway. It’s great pleasure to meet up with nice tour guide Paul and Po (hopefully I spell the name correctly). It’s great trip throughout the whole journey for this private trip especially when you’re traveling with family and dragging with luggages. Overall great experience.

This trip is wonderful, because we could see Norwegian landscape in full. Whether it was from car or from the ship. We have also opportunity to taste goat cheese and goat salami. Frode was excellent guide. He knows a lot about every part of our way. We spent wonderful 11 hours with him. We recommend this trip to every one.
