Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Robert did the city tour for us. In a very good English. He is a native speaker. We have experienced 2-3 hours (we have not looked exactly at the time) an informative, well-organized city tour.

We had the impression that not the usual standard attractions are worked off, but a slightly different view of the city. In addition, Robert was also available for questions, personal views and judgments and discussion around life in Trondheim.

Booking was completely uncomplicated. We received a message immediately afterwards about the meeting point at the main station and other organizational details.

Overall, we were very taken with the tour. From us a recommendation without ifs and buts.

This was an excellent tour, especially as there was just my wife and I in the group. This allowed our excellent tour guide to give us his full attention and to go into more detail regarding what we were seeing. He took us around the city centre visiting all the main sites and didnt just bamboozal us with lots of facts figures and dates. We discussed the reasons behind how the city developed and why certain things happened.
We then visited a less well known but equally significant area of the City where people had constructed their own affordable houses in a self build style with local arts and crafts playing a significant part. It was fascinating. We finished off near to the remaining German Submarine Pen Dora 1 that defied attempts by the Allies to destroy it during WW2, due to its massively thick reinforced concrete construction.
This was a really enjoyable 3 hours. Thanks

We were touring Norway in 3 weeks and stopped 2 days in Trondheim. This tour was a perfect balance between city discovery, history and a dedicated focus on svartlamon which is a part of the city with an alternative way of living. Very interesting, everyone enjoyed!
Therefore highly recommended!

A fantastic and very complete tour (even with some Covid 19 closures) with the traditional things to see like the Cathedral and Bakklandet but also the Svartlamon the community eco village. Robert gave really interesting historical background and even some interesting side notes that you may not get on other tours. He really shows his connection to the city. He's got a great rapport with the locals so you feel like one too. He gave me some good recommendations for other places to visit. I highly recommend this tour if you really want to get to know Trondheim.

Robert was a wonderful guide. We were a family with 3 generations, all with slightly different needs. He adapted the trail to the pace of grandchildren and grandparents whilst keeping it engaging for us all. There were a barrage of questions which he handled well that allowed us to plan the rest of our trip. I would highly recommend Robert.

Tour with Robert was great! Got lucky and I was the only person on the tour. Got to see the places and interesting objects that I would’ve otherwise missed and it was a perfect introduction to the city. Cool thing was I didn’t get bombarded with dates but rather interesting facts about the city and its history. I think even the locals could have fun on this tour :)

Lovely stroll trough the city, like u had a pleasant conversation with a friend. Meanwhile we could ask anything that was on our mind. You get local/regular information but also the point of view from a foreigner living in Norway, which is rather interesting

I went on the Alternative Trondheim with Robert as my guide. He was very pleasant and even met me at my hotel where we walked to meet up with the family going on the tour too. Robert took us to many places I would have missed if I had wandered about on my own. He was also very good with the child that was with us. I recommend this walking tour and even went back to spend more time at a few of the places Robert took us to.

Sonya was a wonderful guide for our walking tour in Trondheim. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed talking to her and she did a great job answering all my questions. We saw a lot of Trondheim and it gave ideas on where to visit during the remainder of my visit. Sonya also sent me information after the tour in an email in response to some questions I had and that was really appreciated. I would highly recommend her tour! Thank you Sonya!

Very knowledgeable Sonya drove us two to the highlights of Trondheim and provided lots of very interesting background information. Then lunch in the revolving restaurant on top of the TV-tower, with excellent views of the city; a very good alternative to walking in the rain.!
