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.
Storytellers - we constantly accumulate knowledge and distill it into great stories that bring meaning to the present experience.
Leaders - we are prepared, and inspire confidence and competence in our guests - so that they can feel safe, relaxed and enjoy the experience.
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.
