Firstly, it is a quite a wonderful chance to have a boat trip in Bergen cause Bergen is a harbour city.
Second, the host of the boat was a very easy to talk, funny man, you can ask a lot about or talk about the city with him. Just like chatting with a friend of you.
Third, the landscape of Bergen is amazing especially could see all of it from the sea.

At last but not the least, it worth the price and the time. It will be a valuable experience during your Bergen trip ever. :)

The skipper was knowledgeable and spoke in a clear voice, easily heard from the bow/front part of the boat. The harbor area is diverse with many interresting points. We were lucky with the weather, which in Bergen can be wet. Would recommend, but check forecast & dress accordingly.

We had a group of 9 and were given the royal treatment on this sailing trip. Tom and Arve went above and beyond to cater to our group. Instead of the typical requirement starting at a minimum of a 7 day trip, we were offered an hourly rate so we were able to sail for the afternoon. They served a delicious dinner while at sea at a very reasonable price. This is certainly a can't miss and was a highlight of our trip!

We loved this intimate tour in a open sailing ship. The guide was knowledgeable and quite funny. A chance to make conversation with other passengers, there was room for only four couples. The sail was unfurled out in the open fjord, but powered by the motor as we moved through the channels hearing about the cultural history and changes in Bergen. A wonderful alternative to the tourist packed ferry tours offered through the big companies. Highly recommend for savvy travelers looking to get out of the contrived tourist experience.

Very nice 2 hour trip around the coast of Bergen. Very knowledgeable and friendly people who run it. You don't get to see impressive views of the fjords but a good boat trip
