Norway and Hurtigruten Coastal Voyage review, 50 Degrees North, John and Barb September 2015
This is a short note to thank you in particular for the professional manner and friendship displayed on our recent tour and your wonderful staff (especially Asko and Sofie) for ensuring that we did, as Lennon/McCartney so succinctly "put it", - "Roll up (satisfaction guaranteed) roll up for the magical mystery tour"!!
Yes, it was a magical mystery tour with every day being magical - first day - magnificent meal at a 150 year old restaurant in Oslo, next day - tour of the maritime museums to see the Viking boats, the Fram and the Kon Tiki, the next day - tour of the Vigeland Sculpture Park followed by the winter Olympic Ski jump and simulator at Holmenkollen followed the following day by train trip from Oslo to Myrdal and then a trip on one of the most scenic railways we have travelled on to Flam - the next day to Bergen via ferry cruise, bus and train; and so the magic continued - enroute to Kirkeness aboard the MS Finnmarken "in and out " of a myriad of fjords scattered along the Norwegian coastline, stopping at numerous little ports as well as larger ones including Trondheim, Bode and Tromso, but as a good magician, you kept the best till last - the highlight for me, and a dream that I have harbored since I was a child was physically visiting North Cape and seeing what is definitely magical, the Northern Lights (how you arranged to have the lights "switched on" on the last night of our tour is what I call class!!).
Needless to say we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and as Barb so eloquently stated to one of her friends upon her return to Adelaide, "I was gobsmacked by the natural beauty of the fjords, glaciers, small fishing/rural villages scenery and its people".
In closing, you can be assured that we will have no hesitation in promoting your company to our friends and acquaintances should they be planning to visit Scandinavia, Iceland or Greenland.
Again, many thanks for sharing your enthusiasm, knowledge and love of Norway - it was a "magical mystery tour"!!
Barb and John "
