Norwegian Heritage Tour (summer 2016)

Our trip was perfect. Everyone was very happy with the arrangements and sad to leave Norway. For most part the weather cooperated so we were able to do almost everything that we were scheduled to see and then more. We had a very thorough tour of Lillehammer with our relative who has more knowledge of the country then ...

This was the best trip I have ever taken. It was perfectly orchestrated

Norway is even more beautiful than we had imagined. Our Epic Fjords & Seas of Norway trip in the summer of 2015 was almost perfect. I will try to give you a day by day run-down of our experiences.

Day 1 We were met in Oslo by a uniformed driver in a new BMW. What a way to start! All our transfers were ...

Highlights of Norwegian Fjords in 2015

We really had a nice time! The people were very friendly and the scenery was gorgeous. We didn’t have any issues with anything. Our only "complaint" was that the Smart hotel in Oslo was extremely small. But as I said, all we really did was sleep in our accommodations. All of the other places we stayed at were perfect. ...

Our Norway trip was a success

Our Norway trip was a success. Thanks again

We had an amazing time In Norway - June 2016

We had an amazing time In Norway, the company that you worked with was extremely professional, always on time to pick us up and get us back. If we had to do over I don’t think we would change a thing. The tour guides were great and showed us everything we wanted to see and some other great areas we would have missed ...

Summary of our fabulous trip to Norway and beyond

First, I want to thank you for all the work you did before and also while we were on our trip. It was very nice to know you were there and I could contact you when needed. Everything ran very smoothly after we got to Norway. We were able to see all the places we wanted to and found the people very friendly and helpful ...

Everything went so well that we could hardly believe it

We are safely back home from our fabulous Viking's Heritage Tour, and just wanted to let you know that we are now spoiled for traveling without your help in the future. Everything went so well that we could hardly believe it. The drivers and guides all showed up on time (and usually early). The guides were wonderful - ...

I want to thank your team for the time and effort you put into organizing a wonderful and memorable trip for us. I think the timings you set up were just perfect.

Thanks so very much for a wonderful Norway trip!

Ultimate Norway Experience

Everything went as planned. Had a great time. Thanks

Firebird Tours was a great choice for me - Ultimate Norway July 2016

I had a wonderful time on the tour. Firebird Tours was a great choice for me. The small size of the group let us all get to know each other well, and made the logistics of moving us around from place to place quite smooth. Several in our group had mobility issues (canes, etc.) -- I wonder if they knew how much walking ...

I would do the tour package to Norway again in a heartbeat!

Everything Firebird put together went off without any issues. If there was supposed to be a driver, he was there. If there was supposed to be a guide, she was there. The two city guides were great. One stayed with us longer because while the tour was over, we both wanted to do the same hike so she led the way. It worked out...

What a great trip the Norway

I am finally catching up and I wanted to let you know what a great trip the Norway extension was. The hotel and all the transfers, walking tour for Bob & I in Oslo, were also great. Our young guide in Oslo, was delightful to spend time with. For the pre-trip extension, apparently everything went really well and the ...

Memorable Norway Tour and Arctic Circle Cruise (fall 2015)

I enjoyed this trip so very much. It was/is memorable in so many ways. Our surprise was that it was a private tour unlike the group tours that we have had previously. We enjoyed very much the luxury of the personal attention with the escorts and guides. And, the arrangements, accommodations, and variety of what we ...

Norway small group trip was fantastic!!

The Norway trip was fantastic!! All of the hotels were first class, and all of the 19 people were congenial. Only two problems. The trip to the glacier was a 12-hour day, which was too long a day for everyone, and we did not have previous notice that we would be living out of a carry-on bag for 3 days.This was a struggle...
