Overall - trip was great! Very busy too!
A couple of things to note that could be improved. First - drivers picking up passengers at the airport should check arrival times before going ESPECIALLY if the flights are coming in from Iceland. That airport is not organized at all and everything seems to be late. We were late leaving to Norway and late coming back. It is a mess there right now - I have hope that it will eventually improve, but it will take time! (I have attached the taxi receipt - it was very light - 1030 NOK).
The second thing - the Scandic hotel in Bergen - I would suggest that you do not ever put your travelers in that hotel. It was old and not very clean. It was not even close to the quality of the other places we stayed. Plus, we were told we were going to get a bagged breakfast the next morning since we were leaving early for the airport and when we checked out, they had nothing. I have no positive things to say about that hotel.
And finally - it could be noted somewhere how the tickets work - if the guides have the tickets or if we need to use the reservation numbers or our name to get into places. We eventually figured everything out, but I was a little nervous going not knowing how we were getting into a couple of things!
The positive things - I will never enjoy breakfast at an American hotel again. The food at the hotels were amazing! Plus, several of the hotels had free buffets for dinner which was a pleasant surprise after a long day!
All of the tour guides and drivers were fantastic! I think our favorite place had to be Balestrand. That is such a picturesque town. It was nice to go into the city and see the historic side, but it was also very nice to have some quiet time in the small towns. Overall a very good mix. (however, we did not need to spend all day in Flam....I would have rather caught an earlier boat to Balestrand).
Thank you! It was a very good trip to Norway!
