A bit quirky, sat in the guides seat with his feet in the air most of the night watching stuff on his phone on speaker. Particular about a place to turn the bus around and drove by really large areas where any other driver would have turned around. Defensive when I asked at certain points if we could turn around here so I just let him do his thing. Didn't affect the tour much.

Meda
Åge arrived on time (8:28) with a clean and tidy MB. In the beginning it was hard to communicate with him. I would ask him a question, he would give me an answer and then act in a different way. For example "Can I talk with the guests while standing up? Yes, a little. Great, we can drive then (the bus stand still..) Åge, we can go. Okay! (still stands still) Åge, should I sit down? Yes, I can't drive with you standing up. It happened in front of the guests and was a bit awkward. However, throughout the day our communication became better and it was nice to work with him. He's a kind, helpful person and a good driver. He also knows the area very well, since he grew up in Ersfjordbotn.

Åge was great but I had a little bit of a communication barrier with him as he spoke little English, but we made it work.
The bus had no back compartment, and so we used the back row of seats, making it a little tight with 14 pax, but nobody seemed to mind.

Alex
Andy is an interesting guy. Spent a lot of time smoking outside. He initially refused to turn the engine off if we got strong lights, and only agreed when I got stern with him about it and even then 'only 5 minutes'. Decent driver however, especially given the wind, and definitely wanted the guests to see something almost as much as we did.
2023-01-09
17:15 NL BB
Alex
Andy is a strange guy. One minute he seems to love driving tours, the next he seems to be getting angry at guests doing small things, and seems very impatient, for example, he opened the door for a guest, the guest would talk to me for a second, and because they didn't hop in within a few seconds, he'd close the door again. At some points he was quite rude with an abrupt announcement on seatbelts over the mic even after we'd checked seatbelts ourselves, and 'told off' a group at the end for wearing spikes in the bus.

Andy is a nice guy, he drives really well. Gets nervous and scared very easily, making others uncomfortable. He also talks too much without filtering. He said stuff like “I don’t like this” “You should listen to me” things that make our guides uncomfortable and feel like they are being override. Disappeared for 10minutes without reason during the tour too.

Aslak from Boreal was nice and drove smoothly. We could turn off all lights outside the bus, but after a looong delay, so not so easy to be reactive and take pictures, right off the bus. And it’s pretty much always cold inside the bus as the back is not separated from the guests seats. The guests ventilation was also blowing cold air and when I mentionned it to Aslak, he just said that it was the same last night and no one complained. I had a knowing glance with one of the guest, and we let it go.

Aslak is an interesting guy with a few red flags about him. Smooth driving all night, but later in the night, he started off jokingly saying he won't stop again, but he became more serious as time went on, and I feel that if we did have reports of stronger lights on the way back, he genuinely wouldn't have stopped the bus. He was already reluctant to stop before Kilpisjärvi on the way back. He wasn't paying much attention to the door through the night, and guests would knock on the door to be let in and he seemed to ignore it for a second, quite a few occasions I had to go over and press the button, even though he was sat in the drivers seat. On the way back, he was loudly discussing how much he hates Russians for a minute, before I managed to move the subject on. Closer to Tromsø he was discussing a bridge being built, and suddenly came out with a very anti-immigrant sentiment which I did not appreciate.

It’s not fun to work with Eugen. He is making clear in front of guests that he does not like to do this job, he had better life in Bergen. In the middle of my presentation he is interrupting me loudly, asking aggressively if I’m done, because he gets dizzy from the lights inside of the bus. I just overall have the feeling that he doesn’t care about the guests or the tour at all.

No lights inside when the door is closed. So presentation in the dark, while driving. Pretty imposible to connect or captivate people’s attention. Might have been sleeping already, I couldn’t even tell.
Couldn’t find where to plug in the mic, so no mic
:woman-shrugging:
The gps was repeating the same sentence, every few minutes, for the whoooole drive back. I saw Eugen, surely annoyed, try everything to turn it off. In vain. We managed to lower the volume though.

Frode was nice, good driver for the most part, made one very questionable overtake maneuver during a bend on the way home. Big, big language barrier, as he spoke no English.
Bit of an issue heating the back of the bus as cold air seemed to be blowing in from vents, and the language barrier made this hard to resolve. The way to fix this seemed to be to crank up the heating in front and let it passively reach the rest of the bus.

Our driver, Frode, is a nice guy and great driver.He hardly speaks any English, so could be difficult to communicate if none of the (assistant) guides speak Norwegian/Swedish.- He hit the bus mirror when overpassing another bus stopped to assist a car ditched on the side. We heard many guests gasping (surprise effect).

Greger's driving was a bit jerky and we could notice that he didn't know the bus very well, as it was a bit chaotic every time we wanted to change the lights inside the bus. The temperature of the bus in general was good, but we had problems because the front part of the bus was very hot due to the heating to avoid the humidity of the windshield.

It was my first time working with Greger from Boreal, and I didn't feel safe at 2 separate points tonight. First was when we were on the way to Grunnfjord, as I asked him to turn the high beams off so I could see the sky more clearly. He had already done this a few times, but this time he turned off all the lights and we were driving blind for a couple of seconds, resulting in a few audible gasps from the back. The second was worse, during the drive back. His phone rang and he swiped it away, and I thought he was declining, however he then took his hand off the wheel and attention away from the road to grab his headphones, all while we were approaching a curve at speed. He quickly darted back to the wheel and gained control again, but it was a worrying moment, and at this point I was genuinely scared, but I don't think any guests noticed this time. A few times when I came to the bus to check on guests or get equipment he was sleeping, and I had to wake him to get equipment out. He's a very nice guy, but the above points overshadowed that.

Boreal bus (AS41455) was embarrassing. A very squeaky right suspension that was constantly cracking while driving. There was cracks and holes in the upholstery of the seats and in the rear seats one of the seatbelts didn't retract.

Jon was a nice driver but seemed very uninterested in trying to fix problems, palming any off any (such as the toilet overflowing, he didn't even attempt to fix it and so we just had to lock the toilet for the remainder) with the excuse of him not having driven the bus before.
The bus we had was not ready for the chase at all. (Reg: DR68632) Full of rubbish and evidently toilet tank nearly full.
Drivers 'not having driven this bus' before, and problems arising from this, is a theme recently, and I think we should push with Boreal to make sure that drivers know/are trained in the bus they're driving, at least the basics.

Driver did not help with cleaning even after arriving with such a dirty bus, simply mentioned that there was no time because there was an excursion right before.

He came at 7am but was sleeping in the bus at 8am. Driver had a flight to catch and told our guide that tour had to be ended early. He also drove a MB for the first time, hence hitting every bump on the way there. He did not speed but his lack of knowledge of the roads made the trip feel very unsafe. He wasn’t happy that food was provided for him.

Knut didn't offer to help and I didn't ask, so not sure if he would be willing to do it. He drove well. He's living and working in Bergen and came to Tromsø for a short time to help Boreal.

Knut doesn't speak any English and refuses to. I had difficulty explaining certain things and tried explaining in English but he didn't seem to want to understand. He didn't help with loading or anything during the tour,ad a small argument with Knut because he at first refused to drive to a private address because it's passed 3am but when I explained it's really close he agreed
White boreal MB was dirty. Some rubbish around the seats which I cleaned up before pickup. Found a glove that I gave to Knut. Hairs on the seats and lots of stains

Knut was very nice and the driving was very smooth.
To change to BB or order new BB The lights were not working inside of the bus, only when the door was open. That made a wierd atmosphere when I made the presentation. The door was even a bigger problem. It wasn’t closing properly. There was a descent gap between the door and the frame, which gave us a very loud noise for the whole trip and it was absolutely obvious that something is not ok with the vehicle.

Our driver Knut was amazing, he helped a lot and made our job easier by being a bit flexible with where to stop

he smoked a lot, including lighting up in/very close to the bus, he used his phone whilst driving and talked constantly on his phone seemingly running his own business.
