Many visitors consider Bergen to be Norway's most beautiful city. Why is that? Come and see for yourself and find yourself mesmerised by Bergen's maritime charm on this tour. On the tour, we'll familiarise you with Bergen's most important sights, such as the Bryggen in the Hanseatic Quarter and St Mary's Church, through telling interesting and amusing stories. In doing this, however, I don't just want to bring you closer to the historic sides of the city, but to the people of Bergen as they live here and now as well.
