Both the driver and tour guide were excellent. The driver (Valeri or Valeris) was skillfully adept at maneuvering the bus through tight spaces and particularly in the "hairy hairpins" of the Norwegian part of the tour. Our guide Jeffrey Engle spoke clearly and insightfully and gave us excellent guidance. We are grateful for his understanding recommendations for parts of the included and optional tours based on our mobilities.

The tour was wonderful. Obviously, a lot of work and planning went into it. There was something for everyone . . . big cities and small farms, palaces and historical churches, quaint hotels and contemporary ones, a bus, variety of ferries, and a train. Norway's transportation system is impressive. Our tour guide/team were excellent. Certainly knew their jobs very well, were personable, knowledgeable about the countries, entertaining, concerned for our well-being, and ran a smooth tour. I can't rave enough about Amanda and her team.
