You get exactly what is described. A beautiful 6 hour drive there and the same drive back. During the (really breathtaking) drive, interesting facts about each location were told throughout and extra slow driving/stopping was done when passing a spot where you can take good photos (e.g. waterfalls, sunset etc.) or when it there is an interesting story about a place. In Flåm you have enough time to explore the place (e.g. to visit a museum, to eat out or buy snacks/souvenirs or similar). You can also stretch your legs there. In addition to comfortable seating, the ship also offers the possibility to go outside on the outer deck. There is a kiosk and clean toilets. The staff on board the ship was also super friendly and helpful. All in all, I really recommend this ride!

Great excursion for those with limited time in Norway. Our great guide Artur picked us up in Oslo and drove us to Geilo to take the Geilo-Myrdal train. The panorama was splendid and the fjords were covered in snow and ice! Then we took the Flam railway: superb views. In Flam, we took a cruise on the SogneFjorden aboard an electric boat: fabulous. On the way back, our great guide stopped us at amazing places for photos and then took us back to the hotel. A day where we took full eyes! Thanks again to our guide Arturs for his good humor and professionalism.

This tour is a great way to see the diverse landscape of Norway in a complete package; Fjords, Mountains, coastal villages. Given that we took the tour in February meant no large crowds with plenty of space to roam around the boat for viewing and pictures. Just had some weather to contend with but was to be expected. Our guide Sonia was great. Very knowledgeable, personable and informative.

This tour is a must for someone who wants to spend 1 day in Bergen. The nature is so wild, the hills & mountains so steep, creating waterfalls everywhere, & the people so kind, helpful & cooperative..

You will be told a basic mimimum of stuff since it's not an officially guided tour. However, the views are beautiful and you have enough time in Flåm.
