What our clients say about us:


We have returned from our trip to Scandinavia. I am very pleased with your arrangements. Especially to note: Staying in flam overnight instead of hopping on the boat immediately worked much better than watching others run from the train to the boat. We wanted to let you know that we were very satisfied and will recommend you to anyone we know ants to go.
S. Habib


I know that customers, me included, complain when there has been poor service, but we don't often commend good service. One of your employers, Adrienne, has been extremely helpful to me with the kind of service that everyone appreciates but few people expect today. When I made my email reservation for the Copenhagen-Oslo overnight ferry, I made a mistake with the date, writing July 21 instead of August 21. Instead of leaving me to deal with my own costly mistake, before she made the reservation, she sent an additional email inquiring as to when I was leaving the U.S. When I replied that I was leaving on August 16 and hoping to be on the boat on August 21, she informed me of my mistake and allowed me to make the reservation for the date that I intended. Each of her emails communicated professionalism and gracious hospitality. Her action saved me money and more than that, it gave me more confidence in transactions via the internet. Please know that I will forever praise 5 Stars of Scandinavia to friends and colleagues because of her kind and thoughtful action. Thank you.
M. Tooley


We have been back from Norway for a week and I just wanted to thank you for all your assistance. We had a WONDERFUL time. The hotels you selected were great. Every ticket worked properly. The coastal steamer was outstanding. Thanks again for all your help and advice. I would not hesitate recommending your agency for any similar trips.

Just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the trip you planned for us. The ferries, trains and hotels were a wonderful combination and I feel we saw as much as we possibly could in 13 days.
I would recommend your services to anyone. Thank you again.

We just returned from our trip to Scandinavia and are very pleased with your arrangements and will recommend you to anyone we know who wants to go.. Especially of note: Staying in Flam overnight worked much better than watching others run from the train to the boat. the boat from Bergen to Hanstholm worked beautifully. The Hotel Augustin in Bergen and the Hotel Opera in Oslo are wonderful.

Hello Natalie! Thank you so much for talking to me about our Scandinavian trip today. Your supervisor should know that you were easily the nicest, most patient, and easiest to understand person I've spoken with during my days of trying to plan this trip! 
P. Hustad


What a great trip! Indisputably one of the best we have taken-made so principally by your excellent advice and guidance. Everything worked as planned: the rail and ferry schedules meshed perfectly, the hotels were comfortable and convenient to the train stations. We appreciate all the effort you put into making our trip memorable.

Thank you for all of your hard work, patience and good judgment - our trip has been very successful.
A. Patterson

I just had to do a very complicated driving trip through the Fjords in Norway with a side trip to St. Petersburg, Russia for a VIP. It took me a long time to find someone who could help me put this trip together as I knew very little about the area. I finally found Kristine Edwards or 5Stars of Scandinavia. They were unbelievably helpful in putting this challenging trip together for me and the client came back delighted. I would highly recommend this wonderful company and, in particular Kristine, if you have clients going to Scandinavia.
E. Starkey - Pro Travel Inc.


I thought you deserved to know how much I enjoyed the trip. It was a great trip, thank you for it. We really enjoyed it, from the beginning to the end. Your selection of hotels was great. All of them. The view of Balestrand, the Sogne Fjord from the terrace of my room is something I will never forget. And Oslo was great, the city, the marvelous Hotel Continental that was a museum in itself, the Theatre Cafe was really the place to be. The Coastal Steamer is something I will never forget. The ship was splendid, the atmosphere could not be nicer, people from everywhere, and a couple of Spaniards (ourselves). The crew great. I was sorry to leave the trip in Kirkenes. I shall do the trip again, but this time all the way up and down. It was really, as they say, the most beautiful trip in the world.
P. Breva Ferrer


The visa free cruise you set up for us from Helsinki to St. Petersburg was wonderful. The shore excursions set up by the cruise line were very interesting. We all had a fantastic time. Thank you for your assistance.
Ch. Morgan


Our trip to Norway was wonderful - much to your credit. the accommodations were fantastic. Your professional assistance eliminated the guess work, allowed us to smoothly transfer from one destination to another. The documents and itineraries were perfectly arranged, easily understood and without mistake. Thanks again. It was a "trip of a lifetime" for all of us.
J. Uhler


I wanted to drop you a line to tell you how wonderful our trip to Norway was. the hotels were wonderful, the trip up the coast was great. We had no problems with our plane and ship tickets and connections. It certainly makes a trip much nicer when all goes well. Thanks again!
J. Severson


Our trip was unbelievable - we'll recommend you to everyone! Your influence is impressive!
Helen Cowder


Thanks again for making all of the arrangements. We'll be happy to recommend 5 Stars to anyone planning Scandinavian travel.
Robert DeLap


You arranged for our hotels and the Coastal Steamer in Norway. The hotels were wonderful, the trip up the coast was great. We had no problem what so ever, it certainly makes a trip much nicer when all goes well. Thanks again.

J. Severson


Recently we requested from Five Stars of Scandinavia a guide for St. Petersburg. Larissa and her driver met us at the ship on time, and provided us with wonderful two days of sightseeing in St. Petersburg. We feel we saw more of this city in two days than most people see in a week. Our visit to St. Petersburg was the best of our trip. Thank you for Larissa.
R. Pasekoff


Our family, party of eight, returned from Scandinavia, and were very, very pleased with the independent services. There was so much detail in this independent program, in Bergen, they were provided a very special day excursion. The guide even took the boys fishing, they were overjoyed - and caught some fish! an outstanding job!
R. Girard


We have returned from a wonderful trip to Scandinavia, Russia and Germany. It exceeded our expectations in every way. You did an excellent job putting it together. Thank you for your efforts, we couldn't be happier.
S. Jefferson


This was a wonderful trip. The arrangements were superb, Anne Marie was a truly concerned manager. We would recommend this program with no - absolutely no hesitation. Needless to say, anything we plan, or hear from our friends about plans, to visit Scandinavia, you will be highly recommended.
S. Adelstein


Thank you for your knowledgeable assistance & recommendations. I hope to bring you many more Scandinavian travel clients!

Well, we certainly had a beautiful trip to Norway & some good weather to go with it. The boat trip was fantastic & we enjoyed our side trips to Nordkapp and Saltstraumen. Thanks, takk, for making this such a great trip! We think you should be called "Six Stars"!
Mr. & Mrs. D. Davis

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful arrangements for my clients for their trip to Scandinavia and St. Petersburg. They stopped by my office after their trip and informed me what a great rip it was and what a great tour operator to go with. I owe it all to you. Thank you again and I am looking forward to our next booking.

Greetings! I have returned from a fabulous trip to Europe, made the more delightful by the arrangements you completed for me. Thank you so much for taking care of me even though I am down here in SF and we have never met. I trust that some day we shall.
M. Broemer


Our clients had us over for dinner last night to tell us all about their "Scandinavian Sojourn". They said it was the best travel adventure they'd ever had - and they are well traveled!
They could not say enough about how pleased they were throughout their trip. There was absolutely nothing negative said, just unforgettable experiences and encounters along the way. Thank you for your knowledgeable assistance and recommendations. I hope to bring you many more Scandinavian travel clients.
C. T. Voyages Cruise and Travel Consultants

My clients are back form Norway and I wanted to let you know that they had such a wonderful time. I can't thank you enough for all of your help!
B. H. Salty Dog Travel, Inc.

I promised to let you know how our trip to Denmark and Norway went. It was wonderful! Really one of our more interesting and enjoyable travels! If we ever go back, we'll talk to you again. I regret that your company did not profit more from all the time and effort you spent for us. You certainly were our salvation, after all the frustration I experienced before finding you.
H. Cowder

My friend and I had a wonderful trip to Norway. What a picturesque country! We even attended a Grieg piano concert at the Kvikne's Hotel. Thanks again to you and your company for making our last minute travel plans click. Takk for alt,
J. Klang

We just returned yesterday form Sweden and Norway. Your arrangements were most helpful. The Norway Fjord tour, Fjord Images, was outstanding in every aspect: hotels, meals, tour director, motor coach etc. It was an excellent week for us, one we will not forget. Thank you for your help and assistance.
D. Bergquist

We are back and had a wonderful time. Hotel Victoria in Stavanger was fantastic - I highly recommend it. The boat ride Flaggruten was fantastic - we had a great time. Thank you for all your help, we really enjoyed the trip despite the fact it rained every day.
T. Everson

The trip was great and we made our connection in Helsinki thanks to you for your astute planing.
H. Bristol

Last May you made arrangements for us for a trip to Norway, including hotel bookings and the Coastal Steamer. We wanted to let you know that everything went wonderfully (despite airline strike), that we loved Norway and can't wait to go back, and that the Hotel Home With, in particular, was a great place to stay. Thank you very much for everything.
J & G. Archer

We enjoyed our journey to Norway immensely and thank you for your excellent advice on hotels and routes. If we travel again next summer, we most certainly will contact you.
L. Spooner

What better place to write you this thank you note than the porch at the Kvikne's Hotel after a fabulous Norwegian buffet dinner! If the rest of my trip turns out as well as my introduction to Norway, I will be incredibly happy. Anyone you thinks the Norwegians are a somber people should have seen them laughing & joking in the midnight Sun! Have to go sit in the sun.
M. Broemer

Just completed 7 fantastic, fun filled days in Iceland with a wonderful guide, Neils, and superb driver. The weather was fabulous. A few adjectives to describe the trip: wonderful scenery, overwhelming contrast in terrain, awesome glaciers, challenging walks. Information shared by the guide was like taking a college course in history, geography, and Sagas.
Thank you so much for your help in getting this trip for me.
M. Bennett

We arrived safely back home yesterday and want to thank you for your assistance with our travel arrangements. The trip was wonderful!!! Each of the locations was perfect. Thank you!
J & D

My clients asked me to pass on their thanks to you, they had a wonderful trip and other than the train breakdown to Oslo everything went well. The guide was still with them so alternative transportation was organized via bus and train. Look forward to working with you again.
A.B. A-Z Tours International

It takes this time of year to send a note of thanks for all the work you did for us on our trip to Scandinavia this last summer. I am sure you are well aware that the service you gave us was well beyond the average client commitment. My wife in her letter sang praises of your effort on our behalf. You deserve every accolade. Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year!
N. Bjork

If you are contemplating of going to Scandinavia, PLEASE, PLEASE, use Ingrid. Nils has never had such conscientious, friendly and professional service in which the time in doing the job right was of no consequence. Not one day was underutilized; not one fare or amenity was left unevaluated for
best price and value; no adventure trips options were ignored. Without her knowledgeable skills many fond memories would not have been made.
M. Bjork

St. Petersburg was beautiful. The Hermitage as impressive as I knew it would be. We had a wonderful guide, lovely women, and very knowledgeable and great company as well. All in all it was truly a memorable trip. Thanks again.

We are writing from Trollhaettan as we prepare to play our first round of golf today. The experience has been wonderful and we can't thank you enough for your assistance. We have already spoken to friends who are sure to be contacting you to book for next August. My wife and I are just returned from one of the most wonderful vacations ever in Europe. Oslo was fascinating, the trip to Myrdal by train and then down to Flam was awesome, and the cruising on the fjords was just great. Hotels selected were excellent - a room with a view over the harbor in Bergen's Admiral Hotel was the icing on the cake! Many thanks, Natalie. A Job well done!
A & M. Mole

My clients are back from Norway and I wanted to let you know that they had such a wonderful time! I can't thank you enough for all of your help!
B. H. Salty Dog Travel

Thanks to your arrangements, we had a wonderful trip to Scandinavia. All the hotels were prepared for us and we had very gracious accommodations. The Admiral in Bergen was sheer heaven. When I walked into the room, I exclaimed
with joy because I had a wonderful view of the harbor and the old houses across the way. The arrangements in Tallinn and St. Petersburg were also excellent. We learned so much from them, not only about the history and architecture, but also about the quality of life in their countries. Again, many thanks for your arrangements which made our trip a great success.
