By the time it's time to take the Flam train, of which I was looking forward to.. sun had already set before... More

We took the trip from Oslo to Bergen, and several parts of this tour were cancelled with absolutely no advance notice. The Flam Railway tour was cancelled, yet nobody communicated this change prior to departure. Later, we found out our train back to Olso was cancelled, and again, nobody told us of the change. We were left stranded, 8 hours... More

Hi, First, thank you for your honest feedback. These are serious accusations you present, and I must say I find it hard to believe you did not get any written communication (e-mail or message) from our customer center, concerning the on-going national political train strike. We sent numerous e-mails with all our customers during the time of strike, and hopefully... More

Every aspect of this tour was breathtaking and magical! We went through a different tour group so this was booked for us and we had nothing to worry about when it came to tickets and bookings.

I took this tour with my mother and aunt this summer. It was very well organized, and the sights were absolutely amazing. The fjord cruise to Flam and train ride from Myrdal to Oslo were spectacular. Only point of disorganization was loading on to busses in to get to the cruise, there were several Chinese tour groups on arranged at... More

We planned a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords. I tried to book the boat for the fjord cruise from Flam, with a return to Flam by train, on my own, but there was no availability showing for the train.

This is one of the most beautiful journeys we have ever taken. Every leg of the trip took my breath away. It is one of those "once in a lifetime" trips....I can't say enough about it.
