The pickup is punctual and the driver give us some inside about Norway. It’s great pleasure to meet up with nice tour guide Paul and Po (hopefully I spell the name correctly). It’s great trip throughout the whole journey for this private trip especially when you’re traveling with family and dragging with luggages. Overall great experience.

A very professional operation with Rodne on a very comfortable vessel. The whole team were delightful and the Captain made a special effort to come round and talk to the passengers on the way back to the harbour. An unforgettable experience

Excellent afternoon out on the fjords, great crew and beautiful sights.
