We are heading to Oslo in early July and want to book the NIN tour to Bergen. From what I can tell, the only trip leaves at 06:25am from Oslo, which is fine, but given some of the comments I am concerned about getting our tickets. Can they be emailed or mailed? Do you pick them up before 6:00am on the day of?? Also, are there reserved seats or first come first serve? We are a party of 4 that would like to sit together. Thanks in advance. Ann

No, I did not sign up for this excursion through a Norwegian tour company. I was on a cruise boat and it was offered as an execution. No tickets needed. Sorry.
