    This tour was so much fun. I can’t say enough about the beauty of Norway. Each of the five hikes provided a unique aspect to the rugged, unique terrain. Nes Gard, the accommodations, friendly staff and absolutely wonderful food each evening, far exceeded... Read more

    I was extremely disappointed that the leader thought I was not fit enough to take part in the walks, without any justification.  I would not have booked the holiday if I thought I was not fit enough, as it would be unfair on other guests and I would not... Read more

    A great escape! The trip was appropriately graded: the hikes were just challenging enough to make it feel like we'd earned our suppers! The food, service and accommodation at Nes Gard were first class - well above expectations. Asbjorn, Mari and their staff... Read more

  • Leslie3rd September 2018
    It is too bad there is no 6 or 8 star rating available. 5 isn't really good enough for TourRadar. This enterprise surpasses even the most stringent, high-bar criteria for excellence of customer service. These people are consistently, constantly, on top of your tour itinerary, where you are are in the process, your current status and your situation, they answer the phone on the 2nd or 3rd ring, I'M NOT KIDDING, nd when they pick up they already know who you are, what your tour and status is, and they instantly produce precise answers and solutions to your questions or problems in a matter of seconds. I don't know who the competition is for this outfit but my advice to them is, give up. Go find another line of business. You will never catch up with the platinum customer service these people provide.
