This tour was excellent value for seeing some of the beautiful Norwegian fjords and countryside. Gita, our tour director, kept us on time and entertained us with lots of stories and information, and Vytas, our driver, showed his expertise as a driver of a large bus, even on a few hairpin-turn mountain roads.

We traveled with our 88 year old parents and my 3 siblings and spouses on a nostalgic tour to visit our roots. Norway was of course as beautiful as expected but Cosmos/Affordable tours exceeded our expectations. The coach was beautiful Vitas our driver was amazing on the challenging fjord roads. The accommodations exceeded our expectations for the dollars spent and the hotel breakfasts were bountiful, beautiful and got us thru most days until dinner, American hotels could learn a thing or two about breakfasting their guests properly. Ausra our tour guide was an amazing! On her game everyday with maps of the cities we were visiting, stops in all the right places and stretches at the right times. We learned some history from her, supplemented with appropriate video at times, learned about the indigenous Sami ppl, learned what the Fox says. We saw the most amazing Norwegian landscapes from cruises and mountaintops. Her organization and expertise made a fabulous and affordable trip of unforgettable memories! Do a Cosmos tour you will not regret it, we (all10 of us) could not have been more pleased and surprised about the value of our Norway experience!

The trip was great. The accommodations with one exception were excellent and the tour director was outstanding.

trip was thoroughly enjoyable and ant times the accommodations and experiences beyond expectations

This trip with Cosmos was unbelievable perfect, it was my dream trip to tour Norway and it was by far better than I could have ever thought, everything was perfect and everyone went out of their way for our comfort, ou airline to Norway, which we booked on our own, go with Cosmos, lost my daughters suitcase and she never did get it, this was on the beginning of our trip. Our tour operator went out of her way to call the airlines everyday looking for my daughters luggage, she sure did not ha e to do that. I would rate this company AAAAAplus it was excellent..

The bus new, clean and very comfortable. Each day all onboard rotated seats so you could experience different views as well as get to know your fellow travelers. All the people we traveled with very nice we had a great time. There were 49 of us including driver and two guides. The driver was great as well as the tour director Judith. Just a wonderful trip, the best tour and the most beautiful country to visit. The beauty is in the country and in the people who live there. Kind kink people.
