The tour was really nice, although we could see no northern lights due to the cloud cover. We got a very personal city tour and got to know Tromsø. Since the group only consisted of my friend and me. Can highly recommend the tour!

Was very informative and interesting, nice and very good German speaking guide. Tour was booked in English, but a lot of the information was also given to us in German. It was a special experience to walk through the snow-covered Tromsoe.
