We have already praised your company and the services you provide and we will continue to promote Nordic Visitor as we share photos and travel stories with friends.
I have travelled extensively both on my own and through organized, scheduled tours. My experience with Nordic Visitor was exemplary. Every tour was on time. We were picked up right in front of our hotel each day for our tours. The descriptions and time allowances for each tour were spot on.
Nothing ever ran past the time it was supposed to end so we could schedule other things for the remainder of the day without fearing we might not be back in time. I can't say enough good things about Nordic Visitor Tours and the people who work there.
We were very happy with the standard of hotels and their restaurants, especially as they were often in fairly remote places. We were particularly impressed with the road map we received from you with the route, points of interest and hotels marked.
This made everything very easy. Combined with the information book describing the points of interest and general information, we had a very enjoyable trip.
You are so well organized and thorough. I cannot say enough good things about the map. The accommodations were very nice. Everyone we met was so professional and welcoming. We have already recommended you to several friends.
