Second time we choose your firm for our holidays and the result is outstanding

I’m back to work after these last two wonderful weeks in Norway. From beginning till end the trip was a real success.

Let me thank you once again for your contribution in the itinerary of the trip. All hotels were really well located -always in the city centre- and most of them where really nice. The Historic hotels were an experience, good suggestion! As for the weather we really cannot complain as we had sun for nearly 7 days without rain! So finally fantastic holidays! Be sure to count on us as customers of Nordic Visitor in the future, it’s the second time we choose your firm for our holidays and the result is outstanding.
