Our Reviews & Testimonials
Kind words from our travelers
Exceptional service. Drivers and vehicles were first class. Both hotels we lodged at, Hotel Apotek in Reykjavik and Hotel Range in the south coast, were 5 star, amazing food and service. Our tours were perfect and included all transportation, needed rain gear and lunch. Highly recommend the company.
I confess, at first, I had some reservations. While we travel extensively, this is the first time we traveled to Norway. We were booking with Discover Scandinavia Tour, as a first time customers with a tour company located in Florida, run by a man from Brazil arranging travel for two mid-seventy year-olds – we had some apprehension. When we read the reviews, however, we decided this was worth the chance. We subsequently booked with Marcelo Guimaraes and it was the best decision we made regarding this vacation. The bookings and the instructions were clear, accurate, and easy to follow. The trip itself was absolutely a journey of a lifetime. Marcelo booked us on the “Norway in a Nutshell” tour and took care of all arrangements including an overnight stay in one of the intermediate stops. Everything worked perfectly. In my lifetime I visited over 65 different countries, this trip was the easiest. Thank you, Marcelo for doing an outstanding job. Best, Barbara and Jack Barry.
There is so much to see in Norway, that I found it a bit difficult to plan this trip on my own, so we contacted Discover Scandinavia Tours. Marcelo was excellent in customizing a tour for us, His ideas and selections proved to be excellent and his staff was great on follow through. We highly recommend using this agency to plan and book your tour.
Individually tailored tours of Scandinavia. I and my friends visited Norway for two weeks. We enjoyed a variety of travel modes and places throughout Norway. Everything worked perfectly. Highly recommended.
Marcelo and Shawnna made booking our trip to Iceland an absolute pleasure. This wasn't a generic vacation package; we had very specific requirements for our desired activities and budget. Our expectations were far exceeded and we will definitely be using them again for our next Scandinavian adventure!
Marcelo and Shawna were both very helpful in developing the perfect customized plan for my trip to Norway. As a solo traveller, I usually go on road trips, but for this adventure, I travelled by train, boat and plane. Discover Scandinavia Tours helped me design an itinerary that allowed me to absorb each beautiful destination. They booked the most amazing accommodations, arranged for all travel tickets, and signed me up for a few fun excursions. DST were very attentive and flexible in order to include a few of my challenging off-the-beaten-track requests. I had a wonderful and relaxing trip in a stunning country. Thank you to Marcelo and Shawna for making it so comfortable and stress-free. I would happily recommend Discover Scandinavia Tours to anyone considering a trip to that part of the world.
“Hello Marcelo! We’re back from a truly fabulous trip! All of the cities and towns were gorgeous, the tours were excellent, the fjords were stunning, and the food was amazing! We also lucked out with only 1 day of rain! Thank you so much for all of your guidance and hard work!”
I am SO thankful for Marcelo and Discover Scandinavian tours. You created a wonderful vacation for me and 8 family members and took care of all the details. The hotels and tours you booked were excellent and the customer service was superb. I felt like we got to be good friends and I trusted that you had our best interest at heart and were always just an email or phone call away.
Finding a tour company on the Internet can be a scary experience. One doesn’t know if the organization is for real, honest, experienced. I didn’t need to be wary of Discover Scandinavia Tours and Marcelo. He worked with me on issues before our trip – as I was figuring out all we wanted to do – and after the trip when he had to reimburse us some of the expenses for our car rental. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who is traveling to Scandinavia. His choice of lodging was wonderful and his ideas for tours were fun.
Marcelo fulfilled our every wish. He scores a “10” for his ongoing concern for his clients. We would heartily recommend using him to organize any trip to Scandinavia.
My son and I would not have been able to pull off our last minute trip to Scandinavia without your help. You planned an amazing 10 day trip a week before we were scheduled to leave! You were able to put together a trip that exactly fit our interests, including a once in a life time trip to Moominworld! You were super responsive even while you were on your own vacation. Thank you! I would highly recommend your company to anyone considering a trip to Scandinavia!
Marcelo planned the perfect honeymoon for us. From the wonderful hotels to the great activities and suggestions, we couldn't have had a better trip. The champagne waiting for us in Stockholm was the icing on the cake. Marcelo made planning a large and intricate trip completely painless. Thanks again!
We would highly recommend DST to anyone wishing to visit any, or all, of the Scandinavian countries. Marcelo's service was exceptional, very attentive to our wants and needs, and all the details were looked after. It was so easy for us! His suggestions for activities and restaurants were so well thought out and were suitable for all types of individuals. Marcelo is a first-class act in how a customized vacation should be!
Hi Marcelo - the trip has been exceptionally smooth and really fabulous. Weather cooled down a bit in Oslo. Thank you so much for our champagne and chocolates. Very much appreciated. It is so beautiful here and I have never felt more safe in all of our travels. Off to the indoor pool to burn out Luke's energy. Will update you soon. What a friendly country. Travel is so simple here! Countries are beautiful!
Marcelo, if any of your potential clients ever need a reference, tell them to call me! You did a fabulous job putting together our trip and we loved all of your hotel selections. The side excursions that you chose for us were just right. Thanks for tailoring our trip based on what we told you we enjoyed most. You hit the nail on the head! AWESOME job!
Marcelo, my vacation was amazing and any time you need a referral or to talk about any place that went to, please contact me....you're great to work with :)
