Itinerary

The old and well-preserved Bergen wharf is one of the key locations to visit in Norway. Our knowledgeable guide will start this virtual tour right from Bryggen and will narrate you about the history of the Hanseatic League and how it had affected medieval trade. You will learn about the everyday life of the locals and merchants of that time and how they made a living. Then, the tour will proceed to the city port, which has played an enormous role in the city’s trade. Eventually, the tour will come to an end near St. Mary’s Church, the oldest building in the city and the church that was eventually taken over by German merchants of the Hanseatic League.

    This was was a wonderful walking tour - I felt like I was really there! The guide, Magdalena, was a delightful young woman, so welcoming and knowledgeable. I hope to see more of these virtual tours.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the Bergen tour yesterday.  Even though we’ve been to Bergen on 2 separate occasions, there were definitely sights in the tour that we had not seen before.  We thought that Magdalena was personable, engaging, and knowledgeable.  We were impressed with her command of the English language, especially since she moved to Norway from Poland 9 years ago.  We were also impressed with how effectively she used the Zoom platform, as we actually felt like we were touring Bergen and also given the opportunity to ask questions and comment about what we were seeing along the way.  Thanks so much for arranging this very special experience.
