AIDA was fully booked for the date. GYG offered this trip. Announced in English but headphones were provided so that you could get information in German via the intercom on the bus. I found it to be a great service that we were not taken back to the starting point but to the AIDA. Overall an informative and interesting trip. Thanks!

The bis tour was great. The driver Vitor and our female guide from Argentina were beyond all the expectations. The boat tour was beautiful. However, it would have been nice to have a human guide and not an automatic audio giving very limited info.

The tour was excellent for those who are unfamiliar with Norway. Chris was our tour guide and he was phenomenal. Great blend of Norwegians history and personal stories. Would recommend this one to others.

The Guide on the bus was fantàstic.He knows a lot...and in Vigeland park he explains us lot of things...about the escultures.Amazing!!!Simple the Best

Guide was very informative and interesting. Great driver and fab tour.
