Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

Please complete our Private Group Tour Request Form or contact us before booking your Private Group Tour. This ensures your Private Group Food Tour and Experience is exclusive to your group only and no one from the general public has joined.

Please complete the Private Group Tour Request Form or contact us and inform us of your groups available times, and we will try opening another time slot.

Complete the Private Group Tour Request Form or contact us, and we will try to accommodate our tours for your group’s size.

If your group’s headcount exceeds the maximum for a tour’s time slot, we may be able to open up another time slot that is 15 minutes apart from your other time slot(s).

For example: You have a group of 20 people and would like to participate in The Bergen Classic. If space is available, we can split your group into smaller groups of 10 for time slots of: 11:00am and 11:15am.

Alternatively, if your group’s headcount exceeds the headcount maximums per timeslot by a factor of 1-2 people, we can usually get everyone into one group and not split them up.


There are several options available. Here are our recommendations in priority order:

  • Book the number of tickets you know your group will definitely need right now, and then come back and purchase more tickets as your group size grows.
  • Wait until you have the exact headcount and then purchase your tickets. The risk is that there may not be enough tickets for your preferred tour type, date, or time.

Unfortunately, we are unable to hold tours and tickets or issue refunds for unused tickets or no-shows. Spaces are confirmed and guaranteed upon receipt of payment.

That is fine! While it is ideal to get as much information upfront in the ticket booking process online, we understand the challenges of organizing an event for an entire group. Go ahead and give us as much information as you have about applicable dietary restrictions, and then follow up with each member of your group and secure and clarify their dietary restrictions.

Our team will also be in touch with you as we get closer to the date of your event.

We have found in our experience that it typically takes groups longer to organise and all arrive to a start location. As such, please advise your group’s attendees to arrive to the start location 15 minutes before the event’s departure time. For example: Please arrive by 1:45pm for a 2:00pm time slot.

Because we have hot food and drinks waiting for us, all tours depart on time and we do not wait for late arrivals. If you are running late, please call +47 960 44 892 to find out your tours location. We will not be able to save or provide “make up” tastings for late guests.
