It was pouring buckets and windy! But Our tour guide Patrick made the tour very much worth our while. He shared great stories and knowledge, answered our questions and found dry spots for us to duck into every now and then. A consummate professional! Would go again in a heartbeat.

Very nice, varied walking tour. Guide spoke English perfectly, couldn't have been nicer, welcomed questions, and herded cats (the tour participants) efficiently. Pace was pleasant - didn't drag and was never rushed.

You learn something about the history of the city and the tour passes beautiful places, definitely recommended.

Interesting tour round historic Bergen. Visited some of the less obvious locations as well as the main sites.

Magda was an excellent and friendly guide, very knowledgeable.
