I had an amazing time on this tour! The tour guide, Alex, is very passionate. He combines historical facts and stories with humour and he shows a lot of enthusiasm! All places we visited were connected to the story Alex told. He made the tour interactive as well, so for example participants could get little tasks to earn a silver Viking coin. I loved that Alex was also dressed up as a Viking and he even had his Viking horn and shield with him. Practicing our Viking roar together with the whole group made the tour complete! I had an amazing time and I learned a lot because of Alex’s fun and engaging way of storytelling.
