What is guiding?

NGS tour guides lead groups by their personality and knowledge. We bring our guests a deeper understanding and enjoyment of special places in and around Bergen.

One day we are guiding a Hanseatic walking tour through Bryggen, and the next, we are exploring Hardangerfjord with a coach group.

Guides are...

Storytellers - we constantly accumulate knowledge and distill it into great stories that bring meaning to the present experience. A Guide is someone you'll remember!

Leaders - we are prepared, and inspire confidence and competence in our guests - so that they can feel safe, relaxed and enjoy the experience. A Guide is someone you can trust.

Team-players - we understand that our group of guests is part of a bigger picture, and that in order to achieve anything, we need to cooperate with others. A Guide is someone you enjoy working with.

Why is guiding for you?

DSC06854

Because guiding connects your passion of storytelling and exploration with our eager and excited guests.

And, with Norwegian Guide Service, you have access to a large and varied pool of tours in the private, cruise and commerical markets.

What can you expect?

There are many benefits to guiding for those who are flexible and curious!
Please remember that guiding is freelance, and is not a permanent, full-time position. Nor can it offer predictable monthly income.

"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."
