This was a great value and represented a nice savings as compared to the tour offered on our cruise ship. We were met promptly my our guide, who was quite knowledgeable about the area. There were only six of us om a 12-15 person Mercedes mini-bus. The guide gave a running commentary of things we were passing and answered all our questions. We stopped to see a native and one of his reindeer, plus she pointed out numerous reindeer as we traveled. The time allotted for the North Cape was perfect; but, unfortunately, it was quite foggy. The roads were treacherous, but our driver was skilled and gave us a feeling of safety.

This tour was good. It was a bit difficult to find the correct bus in Honingsvaag since there were so many buses in the lot and they were not well marked. The Tour guide was high energy and told stories of living on this island. Nordkapp was very interesting, however I would suggest that people go in the morning if possible because the fog rolled in around 3PM and it was impossible to see the coastline.
We do not do many excursions because we like going off and doing our own thing. At Honningsvag the trip to North Cape required an excursion and we really enjoyed this one. It was hazy but that could not be helped. All in all, I would take it again. It was comfortable and just as promised.
