Thanks so much for putting together a wonderful trip to Norway for us! It included everything we wanted to do and went very smoothly. I did have 2 concerns before we left both of which turned out to be non-problematic. Our 3 train tickets were issued in 2 names – this was not questioned. We had not pre-registered for shore excursions with Hurtigruten but that was not a problem either. There were many choices and adequate space. I did call the emergency number when our (my husband and I) flight had to be rebooked and we found that we would be arriving in Oslo 6 hours late but my brother who was supposed to be flying with us would be on time. Apparently, the message was relayed and there was a driver waiting for my brother at the airport and then also one for us 6 hours later. We thank you for that! We loved our time in Oslo, Flam and Bergen – the walking tours were great as well as the time to explore on our own. We enjoyed the train rides to Hamar and to Flam – a chance to view varied and spectacular scenery. Although cruising is not our first choice of travel, Hurtigruten was to our liking. Fun and interesting but not overly done. The focus is on the environment which is awesome, not on entertainment. And, the visit with our former AFS exchange student, our primary reason for traveling to Norway, was delightful! We learned so much about Norway, inspiring us to learn more. We’ve created some unforgettable memories. Thanks for helping to make that happen!
