Specialized Scandinavia Trip

Hi Berniece,
The trip was perfectly managed. The hotels were good, with great locations. The internal flights and train trips and excursions were all perfect. The weather was rainy and cool a lot, but it didn't dampen our spirits. I will send some pictures and other information later after the jet lag has worn off.
All my best

Hi Ulla,
Well, the Everts finally returned yesterday from their Norwegian and Icelandic sojourn. I spoke with Mrs. Everts this morning and she said to be sure and tell you that they absolutely loved all the arrangements that you made for them in Norway. Thank you, thank you!

7/26/16 Independent Norway arrangements
Hi Ulla,
Just thought you would like to know that, so far, so good. The Everts love Norway and all of the arrangements have worked out really well.
The room they had in Stalheim was just a few rooms down from the one that Conde Naste says is the best room to stay in.
They are on the Hurtigruten cruise right now and will be back in Bergen on August 4th to continue the tour you arranged for them.
Thank you for you great work!

8/5/16 Grand Tour of Scandinavia & St. Petersburg

Ulla,
The trip was great! All connections, transfers and tours were good. We saw many things and still had time on our own which we very much liked. The Robinson tour company was very good and our tour guide, Yves Vasquaz, was exceptional.
The only exception to these comments would be the Scandic Hotel Ornen in Bergen. It was certainly new and creative but our room, as well as several others, faced an inner open area. Our only window faced other room windows and the glass elevators where people would wave to us until we finally kept the curtains closed! Very strange concept!
The Norway part of the tour was amazing. The small towns where we stayed along the fjords were to beautiful to describe.
All good!
Thank you so much!

7/22/16 (Denmark and Norway customized pkg)
Hi Ulla,
Thanks for all you did. We had an excellent trip. The hotels in Bergen and Oslo were great. Their staff was extremely helpful. The breakfasts in Oslo were outstanding!
The tour guides in Bergen and Oslo were great. We really felt we learned a lot. The tour guide in Copenhagen was not well suited to us. She knew about the monarchy and told anecdotes about seeing them, but her knowledge of anything else was poor. Our tour up to Elsinore and Hamlet's castle would have been better if it had included less about the monarchy and other castles and instead stopped in Roskilde as I had mentioned we were interested in seeing Viking museums and it was hard to get to on our own. That was the kind of personalization of the tours that I expected.
The only major difficulty we had was on the Norway in a nutshell. There was nowhere to get any gluten free food, and no time (since the boat was late getting into port) to even try to get anything before the cog railroad. We ended up famished and exhausted. Nowhere on that whole trip was there an clear signage. It was very haphazard. While beautiful, it was poorly done.
The cities were great. We loved Bergen, Oslo, and Copenhagen. Some of the highlights for us were the food markets and in Copenhagen there is a fabulous museum called the David Collection which was brilliantly curated, free, and has one of the world's best Islamic Art collections. While not for everyone, it is something you should know about. We also went to the historical museum, art museum, tivoli, and hired a canal boat on our own. They were each excellent.
Our hotel in Copenhagen, which we booked on our own, (Hotel Kong Arthur) had a great location. The breakfasts weren't included, and were overpriced, but we found other places in the area that we liked. It was also really easy to take the metro to the airport from there. It was easy to take a bus to the hotel in Bergen and my son had no difficulty getting a bus to the hotel in Oslo.
Thanks again,
Amy
