Very nice tour if you don't have a car in Tromso yourself and want to see beautiful landscapes. In a minibus/van with 8 people, our tour guide Mansoor took us to beautiful places such as B. to Kvaloya and Kaldfjord. The tour continued through the great fjord landscape, stopping at viewpoints along the route and there was enough time to take photos, ask questions or just enjoy the wonderful nature. Our guide provided us with a lot of information throughout and created a pleasant atmosphere throughout the excursion. If you want to experience some of Norway's beauty, you'll find it here. At the end there was warm cocoa and pastries. This tour is highly recommended and I would book it again!

The tour was absolutely amazing, Per and Kurt are super great, nice people. They brought us closer to life and the people here. We learned some fun facts, saw amazing places and had a great time on the boat. We can recommend the tour 100 percent and would book it again at any time. At the end we saw free-roaming reindeer. It was absolutely great!!!!

Due to unavailability of the boat, our guide - Kurt drove us to 3 fjords in a Tesla X which is amazing. He stopped us at a local cafe and we enjoyed our chats with him over warm drinks and refreshment. The whole experience is awesome and i would strongly recommend travellers in small group to boom a private tour with this company.

They had a Skipper issue last minute so had to join other small group for just Minivan Tour but it was fine the tour guide Espen was very good!

The only problem is that I cannot put 100 stars. The experience was beyond amazing.
