Norway in a Nutshell day tour is worth every penny. Our trip took us by train from Oslo to Myrdal where we then boarded a different train to Flam. Wish we had time to spend in Flam as it is a beautiful small town. In Flam we boarded a boat which is the highlight of the tour. 2 hours on... More

Lovely experience - Flam is an absolutely charming little village and the cruise is breathtaking - though there is no tour guide the entire tour is easy to follow and well designed. We took the tour from Bergen - which is in itself a beautiful town and highly recommended for a holiday

Our route took us from Oslo to Bergen and down to Stavanger over a period of 3 days and two nights. We packed so much into 3 days that the trip was quite a whirlwind but a beautiful and scenic tour of Norway.The whole process from picking up tickets to getting on the right bus/train/ferry was seamless.

We took the Oslo to Bergen route and split it up with an overnight stay in Aurland. This was the highlight of the Norway trip. Unparalleled beauty on the bus, train and boat segments. The cruise segment has the best scenery. I recommend this trip for anyone visiting Norway.

I have just started this tour and am spending the night in Flam at the Fretheim Hotel. As an aside, the Wifi only works in hallway if in room 223. We were overcharged 500 NOK; the hotel website says 1350 and Fjord Tours quotes 1650.The Fjord pass is a gimmick. I have researched our next 2 hotels on the Internet... More

Did the round trip from Bergen via Voss on Monday 27 April. We booked in advance through the Fjord tours website and collected the tickets from the tourist information office at Bryggen. The confirmation Fjord tours e-mailed did not specify this possibility, but I happened to ask at the information office and was told this was possible. Enough possibilities along... More

A group of friends and I went on the Sognefjord in a Nutshell round trip from Bergen. Overall this was an absolutely fantastic trip and very highly recommended. We started with the boat and this was definitely the best choice as it optimised the journey time. We departed at a comfortable 8am and arrived back in Bergen at 6pm. If... More
