"I am still guiding with NGS after 20 years - even in my retirement. It is so rewarding to hear my guests' feedback at the end of our time together."


Frode - Norwegian, English, German since 1991


"I love the flexibility of guiding alongside my other freelance work. I get to use my languages and knowledge to engage with people from all walks of life."

Rita - Portuguese, Spanish, English, Norwegian since 2017

"I guided while taking my Masters as a way to earn money while studying. It quickly became a genuine passion for me. The knowledge I acquired helped me to get a better understanding of the country and the culture, and is always useful when making new connections."


Bernhard - German, English since 2018


"Over the years with NGS, I have guided so many happy guests all over Bergen - in between my family commitments and physiotherapy work. Guiding is something enjoyable I return to when it suits me."

Doro - German, English, Dutch since 2018


"In the morning I can be guiding in sunny Hardanger, and in the afternoon I am back at work. Accepting guide assignments with NGS allows me to maximise my earning potential around studies and other work."

Adela - German, English since 2012

"I come back every year to Bergen to guide. NGS is always there to welcome and support me, and I have such fun!"
