Highlights of Bergen Tour

Begin your morning tour of Bergen, Norway's most beautiful city. This old trading port has maintained a bustling harbor since the 11th century as part of the Hanseatic League and its history will unfold as you tour the sights. Visit Troldhaugen, the home of famous Norwegian composer, Edvard Grieg. Grieg's home stands majestically overlooking the fjords and was a great inspiration for his music. During your tour stroll through the narrow lanes of ancient Bryggen, visit the 750 year old Haakon's Hall, scene of the medieval Royal court’s solemn ceremonies and riotous feasts and still used for State banquets*.

Approximate tour duration is 3 hours.

*Please note in the event that Haakon’s Hall closes due to local events, the visit will be substituted with a visit to The Norwegian Fisheries Museum.

9 Day Classic Iceland, July 2015

The trip was absolutely amazing! Everything was perfect :) Iceland is breathtaking with its landscapes and I just love the culture and overall environment. The tour guide was really great - I loved having a local with strong Icelandic roots showing us around. He was hilarious! He and the others in the group just made the trip so enjoyable and memorable. Even though I traveled alone I never felt isolated and had such a fun time. I miss everyone already!

As for other details, the hotels and food were great as well. I really have nothing bad to say except I wish I could have stayed longer!

Thank you for your help with arranging the trip. Everything went smoothly and I was well taken care of. I will be back!

Please know how much my husband Bill and I appreciated the extremely efficient and top notch assistance of our Tour Manager Birgitte.  We've traveled several times with Gate 1 and have been pleased with the guide service offered before but never have we enjoyed such perfection--in every instance--of a Tour Manager as we received from Ms. Birgitte. 

She was the most hardworking, conscientious, engaging, informative, always pleasant Manager we've ever had!!  Please extend our gratitude to her for making our trip to Norway unforgettable.  She clearly loves her work and seeing others enjoy a super traveling experience.  I also would like to compliment our excellent driver, who was always gracious, careful, courteous and helpful. 

Now we look forward to our next Gate 1 adventure.  Thank you!!

I can't begin to tell you how amazing our trip was.  This trip exceeded all of my expectations and Brigitte was amazing.  I felt like we had enough alone time to explore and with the planned trips/excursions/itinerary we saw everything that we wanted to.  I can not say thank you enough for the exceptional trip and Ms. Brigitte was the cherry on top.  I have recommended your company to everyone I talk to and can not wait to book the next one.

We had a fabulous trip - great food, nice hotels, wonderful weather, and best of all: one of the finest guides we've experienced.  We have always enjoyed the guides on our Gate 1 trips, but Birgette was so knowledgeable, helpful, and a genuinely nice person!  She kept our group on schedule in a very good manner.  I only wish we had taken the extension.  Our group got along really well and it would have been fun to stay a little longer - our fault for not doing it.  We love Gate 1!

We had a wonderful time on our vacation. This was our 5th trip with Gate 1 and we were very happy as always. Brigette was our tour guide and she was great. She took care of everything for us in a very professional way. Jan was our driver and we always felt safe.

We will continue to use Gate 1 and will tell our friends and family about it.
