What people are saying about Ålesund

Very successful excursion into the hinterland with many great impressions (Trollstigen is definitely worth it!) and everything as described on the website. Small group, 10 people in a small, comfortable bus, was very pleasant, especially in Corona times (!). Absolute top guide (Nacho) and top bus driver (unfortunately forgot your name, Romanian?), both very personable. We got a lot of interesting information about the country and people from Nacho in perfect English, and the bus driver even made an extra swerve up the mountain when asked, because the time was right - that was great, so we quickly had the perfect view on Alesund, thank you very much! Excursion is highly recommended, rather book through GYG instead of through the shipping company, which only transport large masses!!

Small grouip with only four total travelers. Christian was a great tour guide and stopped at a number of scenic locations and explained a number of things. He brought sandwiches, drinks and cookies for us to have a picnic lunch. When we were walking on the tundra, he pointed out wild blueberries that he picked and gave them to us to eat.

Very nice trip every stop was an event. Our tour guide just great. Learned a lot about the city of Alesund and the surrounding area. We also had great weather for this time of year, which made everything even nicer. Would recommend this trip and do it again myself.

Nice tour of Ålesund. All sights are approached and there is enough time to see everything. Our bus also stopped at the aquarium, but it is probably not listed as an actual stop.

Excursion very well organized, stopping in different strategic places to be able to contemplate the impressive landscape.
