Trip review
Norway

loved their trip to Norway

As I mentioned the two major features of Bergen were highlights. The train to Flom was fun. The countryside is beautiful and mesmerizing as are the vistas. the fjord cruise was lovely. the stop at the cider farm was informative and worthwhile. We made two trips to the city hall in Oslo.I went by myself to the Vegland ? sculpture garden and would encourage your guides to strongly recommend that your clients see this. The park is beautiful,the sculptures extraordinary and it is a quick trip on the number twelve tram

Best parts:
Scenery was fabulous. Annette our guide was excellent and Christina our driver was wonderful. Our guide in Oslo was superb as well. the hotels selected by Norway adventures were perfect for our group. I would include the peace center in any tour in the future and skip the fortress which is not of interest to the modern traveler. I would also strongly recommend that your clients be told that the funicular in Bergen is a must as is the wooden 'village' in the center of town
Worst parts:
the first day on a bus was tedious and far too long. You should recall I was very specific about this and I consider this a serious failure on your part.the lunches were awful and half of our group could not eat them. I would strongly suggest simple sandwiches or some type of smorgasbord. This alone would discourage our group from using you again. A small, but annoying point was the self use laundry at Fleishe'rs. the drier did not work properly and my son spent about $35.00 in trying to get his clothes dry. when he complained he was told that he needed to come back and speak to a manager. No manager was available by the time we left. This is a small point, but this should never happen at a good hotel, and certainly one that has such a distinguished history.

It was good to read that you were satisfied with most of your trip, and of course we are sorry to read about the things you were not happy with. The next time it would help you a lot if you use an equal amount of time on answering the questions we asked you in the preparation phase of the trip, as the time that you used now for writing the review. We agree with the things you figured out were the highlights of Oslo and Bergen: all these tips were in the travel details that we sent you before the trip. Thank you for traveling with us and we wish you and your family a nice summer!See more
