“Recommend this tour to anyone considering Scandinavia”

I loved having only 18 in the group. We travelled mainly in a full sized bus so everyone could have a window seat. The accommodation was clean and interesting. One hotel was a converted jail! The accommodation was close to the main pedestrian walkways in the cities. The included meals were delicious especially our farewell dinner. The scenery was different for each country. Norway had the most picturesque with huge snow capped mountains, fast running rivers and waterfalls. Our group leader was organised, full of history, had a great sense of fun and made our trip interesting and easy going. I would recommend this tour to anyone considering a group tour of Scandinavia.
