Overall our trip experience met our expectations. A couple excursions missed the mark but was compensated in other ways.
The Grand Scandinavia Tour by Globus was excellent for providing insight into the countries visited. The sites of Norway were especially spectacular. I highly recommend most of the optional excursions but we could have passed on the Njardarheimr Viking Village experience, which may be okay if you have children. I liked the fact that our tour had people from not just the US (we live in California), but Australia, Indonesia, Philippines, and India.
The tour was conducted professionally. There are two points that I will like to mentioned as I feel it is very important. 1) The quality of included food (breakfast and Dinner) were below standard and were repeated same every time. The response from the tour guide was by the book. 2) On excursions tours, lot of important places that should be covered were not covered or passed off due to time constraint.
Scandanavia is one of the most beautiful tours throughout all of Europe. This tour allows you to experience trains, ferries, and flying during the tour.
In their brochure they really do not prepare you for the very long hours on the bus. They stop at gas stations instead of nice little places for a coffee. You don't get in until late in the afternoon sometimes evening so you have no time to walk around before dinner. The dinners are mostly buffets and not very good. There are too many optional tours. And some of the optional tours should have been included because they were the main thing that you would want to see. In Copenhagen nobody would want to go there without seeing Tivoli Gardens and that's not included. If you love rushing to see a few things and being on a bus for hours upon hours then take the Scandinavian tour.
We've taken many Globus tours and look forward to many more.
We should be able to open our suitcases in our rooms without banging into them. The hotel in Oslo clearly stated that there was no air on the floor which we were placed. We were provided with a fan; however, there was literally no place to put it for it to function properly. There were only a few hotels that provided tissue. The transport provided should be refunded for its extreme inconvenience at the expense of the traveller for Globus' profit. We could have easily booked a cab. To get to the airport at 9:25 for a 2:00 flight that was not international was absurd. This was a real eye opener and deal breaker for us in whether we would ever consider using Globus again. We paid for a service that should have been a convenience. Fortunately, we only booked two excursions that definitely were not worth the expense at all. Globus provided very little on this tour other than excessive grueling travel.
The trip on the whole was wonderful and exceeded expectations. My only suggestion on the itinerary would be to fly from northern Finland to Heksinki, instead of having 2 days that were primarily driving days. Add an extra day each to Stockholm and Copenhagan.
So far, Globus has never disappointed me. We get what we expected. This particular tour, to the North Cape of Norway, was one of the better trips we have taken. It took us where we would have hesitated to do ourselves.
Globus is a wonderful company to travel with. The tour directors and drivers are outstanding. The company gives tour directors flexibility which on this trip proved very valuable indeed. Love the hotel choices in downtown locations which provide easy access.
