    4.0 - Good

    Good value for money. The tour guide in Oslo should just retire, she obviously was there just to point out how inferior the rest of the world was compared to Norway. As for the tour leader, completely not with it or really interested in the group. Our Bergen guide was really great! Super entertaining too.

    This tour was not the best.. I felt it was quite unorganized and pretty independent compared to what other tour companies offer. The places we saw were fantastic, however I felt there were days that were lost. For instance, you do not meet your group or your guide until day 2.. If you do not opt in for the excursion in Balestrand, you have 2 entire days in a town where there is very little to do. I would highly recommend the excursion as this was the highlight of the trip. There isn't much included in this trip. The walking tour in Oslo was good.. however the one in Bergen was very boring and we didn't see anything interesting - this tour was 2hrs long. Then we had the rest of the day at leisure as well as the following day.. So essentially the tour is only 5 days.. Also important to note - this tour is probably not for anyone under the age of 40 as everyone on our tour was elderly. Just a heads up.
    VOS commented on this review
    Dear Rima, I am sorry that you were not pleased with the overall tour. I think the issue is definitely your expectations to the tours versus the reality. This is a semi-independant tour i.e the tour escort is only there to offer assistance not guiding hence why we send the travel itinerary prior to departure with all the necessary details. Regarding the stay in Balestrand - we always recommend the excursion but the day is set up as such to give clients an opportunity to self explore the region as they see it - as you have noted we dont include much in the tour for this reason also. But also means that the tour is affordable and gives space for the individual guests to plan their holiday as they see fit with the assurance of an escort throughout. Hope you welcome you on one of our other tours in the future.

    The tour was very good, just what we wanted. Oslo was great, accommodation was very good. Getting around was so easy, not what you expect in a city, with the train station right at the hotel front door. Every thing was arranged very well. Have a guide with us all the way, made the organisation very straight forward. If there was one thing I would change I would have a hotel in Bergen like the Bristol instead of the Augustin because it is just too far out of the city centre, even though it's only 8min.

    Overall - a very good tour covering some lovely places. My one comment would be to for VOS to provide some additional information in their materials on things like what sights are covered in their included cities tours - so as to be able to better plan free time (e.g. in Oslo). Otherwise it was very well organized.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • May 1, 2017

    What is the group size of this tour?

    Our groups are usually between 25-35. This specific departure will be at maximum 20 persons though.

  • March 1, 2017

    Are children allowed on this trip?

    Children are allowed on this tour, but we usually don't recommend children under 12 for our programs as our tours are set up so we use mainly 'public' transport versus long distance coaches so the clients can experience the most of this phenomenon landscape. So we have experienced that it can be a 'tough tour' for younger children (mainly their parents).
