        Vlad the amazing
        Our private guide Vlad was absolutely amazing! Very knowledgeable, played us relaxing music in his beautiful Tesla and treated us to nice cookies and Glogg on the Ferry. Trip advisor only allowed 5 stars, but Vlad was 10!

        Great day around the fjords!
        Great day with Vlad. He is very knowledgeable and accommodating. We are a family of four with young adult children. Unexpected highlight was lunch on the fjords at a 400 year old farm. Beautiful scenery around every turn. Be prepared for a lot of time in the van as you cover many miles on narrow roads. Thanks again Vlad!

        Incredible, absolutely worth the money
        This tour is more than worth your money. Our tour guide, Vlad, was an excellent host. He was energetic and knowledgeable and helpful served us some warm Norwegian drinks which were excellent. The trip itself covers the most important areas in and around Bergen and you see the most beautiful sights. Highly recommend this one.

        Jandis Tours is above the rest
        My husband and I spent several days with Jandis Tours and Vlad gave us an experience of a lifetime!! We went in May when all the trees and flowers (especially the rhododendron) were in bloom and the snow still covered the mountain tops. It was so beautiful everywhere you looked! We toured the King of fjords, Queen of fjords, Folgefonna glacier, a RIB boat to see the highlights of Norway, white water rafting in Voss, a floating sauna in Bergen where we jumped in the frigid water, a few hikes and more. Vlad is so passionate and knowledgeable about Norway. He knows exactly where to go to see the most spectacular views and where all the extra hidden gems are. His main focus was to give us the best experience possible. Whether it was resting when we needed to or going the extra mile, he was accommodating and attentive to our needs. Our vacation would not have been near as fulfilling without booking Jandis Tours with Vlad. I cannot recommend him enough!

        What Perfection Looks Like!
        In fifteen years of traveling together, this private tour to the Sognefjord region of Western Norway was one of the most memorable and best days my wife and I have ever had on vacation together. Vlad created a day that we will never forget. One could search the world for a better guide, but no one will be found that is better than Vlad. He made the day so memorable for us and so very special. My wife and I had permanent smiles on our faces for the duration of our tour and journey with Vlad. The moments created by Vlad and JANDIS AS for my wife and me were very much appreciated, special, and unique. In the days that have followed our private tour, I am still in awe of all that Vlad created and shared with us to see and experience on our private tour. Vlad expertly tailored our private tour to be exactly what we wanted and so much more. We could not have dreamed up a better experience. Our expectations were far exceeded. We only wish that Vlad could be our guide at every location around the world that we hope to discover in the years ahead. Vlad is like Michael Jordan...he is incomparable and the absolute very best! With Vlad and JANDIS AS, you will have an incredible experience that will produce a day full of outstanding memories that you will cherish forever!

        Our driver was wonderful. Showed up early for our 3:30am pickup. Pointed out the sights we passed as we drove to the Bergen airport. A+ all the way.

        Best tour ever!
        Our tour guide, Mr Vlad is very professional, knowledgeable and attentive. He picked us up from our hotel in a luxurious black Mercedes Benz v class and he specially selected songs for different parts of the tours. He even prepared fruits, cookies and homemade ginger tea for us when we reached Stegastein viewpoint. The mountains, river and Viking village are so beautiful during winter! This is definitely one of the best tours we ever had before. Highly recommended!

        Amazing landscapes and Fjords
        Mr.Vlad who was my tour guide was really great and did the perfect tour of Fjords and waterfalls across Hardangar region passing through the towns along the way and stopped by to witness the beauty of the landscape and fjords. He was good and very easy going, on top of it the weather condition was really great to make the tour quite enjoyable.

        Exceptional Tour Co - deserves more than 5-stars!
        If only we could give 6-stars!! Our experience with Jandis Tour Company was exceptional from our very first written inquiry through our goodbyes after 2 magnificent days of touring. Jana was incredibly helpful as we worked via email to plan our tours and how they should be arranged. She offered several options, and was willing to help us as much as needed with planning and purchasing accompanying boat/train portions of our trips. She also looked ahead to cruise ship itineraries to help us understand when areas could be busier. Ultimately, we did a Highlights Tour and a Queen of the Fjords tour. We are so happy we planned extra time in Bergen and did both. While both were AMAZING, they were different experiences and we've noted a few considerations below that might help you decide if you have to choose. (Seriously, though, stay an extra day and see more! when will you be back??) Highlights Tour: experiencing the fjords and landscape from car, boat and train gives this tour a lot of variety and experiencing the Nærøyfjord on a slower, quiet boat was exceptional from our point of view. We were lucky to plan this trip on a Friday when no cruises were in town, so that made it a bit less crowded (it would have certainly been less pleasant for us had the boat/Flamsbana train been packed). This tour had a bit of everything - beautiful waterfalls, varied landscapes (including a breathtaking view from the hotel terrace), great history (via Jana, who was an exceptional guide), and a STUNNING cruise in the fjord. Things to note: for good seats on the Flam train, you need to queue (which means planning to be there at least 30 minutes prior to departure), the boat and train can be crowded (especially if a ship is in town) and you have to weigh the potential to experience the sights with how "private" you want your day and tour to be. For us, the boat trip through the fjord is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we would absolutely endorse - the scenery changes continuously and the view behind is as stunning as the view ahead. The train was more of a toss up, especially since there are other beautiful waterfalls visible on the road from Flam. Queen Tour: This is really a waterfall/fjord tour. There were several really great waterfalls that we were able to get super close to (and even one we could walk behind). The landscape is even more varied than the Highlights tour and of course, Jana shared tons of great information about specific sights, the general area, and its history. The ferry ride offers a different perspective and a nice chance to get out in the open air to enjoy a view of the area from the water. To really get the most out of this tour, you should be able to do moderate walking uphill (it's a short but moderate exertion hike to/from several waterfalls and the carvings). This tour is also great if you want a bit of time at the end of the day for other activities (like touring around Bergen). We couldn't have been happier with our choice of Jandis. We left feeling like we had just spent two days with a friend that wanted us to see and experience everything they love about this amazing place they live. I'll say again - book the extra day!

      The house and location are really nice and the staff at the house are very informative. On our tour there was a concert in the small modern auditorium included. The pianist on our trip was very accomplished and the auditorium very pleasing visually and acoustically. Well worth the extra time to enjoy.

      This informative private tour in Bergen was an enjoyable and comfortable way for my sister and me to see Bergen and to go from our hotel on Bryggen Wharf to Troldhaugen, the composer Edvard Grieg’s beautiful historic home. Our excellent guide and driver Jana gave us insightful observations and detailed answers to our questions about the sights we saw as well as life in Bergen. Her familiarity with Troldhaugen, its history, and the area around it greatly enriched our visit there. Very worthwhile and highly recommended!!

      Denis was terrific. Very knowledgeable and accommodating. We had browsed through Bergen the day before and he was able to adjust the itinerary so that we did not see the same sights twice. We would highly recommend Denis for your Bergen sightseeing.

      Jana was an excellent and knowledgeable guide on our recent visit to Grieg’s home. It is in a beautiful location on a fjord and we had the place all to ourselves on a pretty afternoon. A very relaxing way to spend part of the day
