Norway Company Nordic Visitor

We're considering booking a self-guided holiday of Norway in August organized by a travel company called Nordic Visitor.
Can anyone provide any feedback on this company, and on the quality of their tours?
The tour is 7 days/6 nights - Express Norway tour.

I have no reason to doubt the quality and reliability of the company, but I did essentially all the things mentioned in that tour description last year. It wasn't hard to arrange myself, and even as a solo traveler (with no one to split the cost of lodging and ferry cabins) it was a lot cheaper; I admit that I opted for lodging that was probably one step down from what the tour provides (though it is non-specific about where you stay). $2377 (US) per person for six nights, with no meals except breakfast, seems pricey for double occupancy. Restaurants in Norway are very expensive.

The one concern I'd have about trying to set this up independently for this summer would be the (apparent) night in Flam. That town books up really early, and it might be difficult to find a room there at this point. (Then again, I was looking for something inexpensive; there might still be some expensive rooms available.) I found hotels in Oslo surprisingly affordable (little business travel in the summer, perhaps?), and Trondheim wasn't bad. The tour seems to spend half its nights in those cities.

When we did our 2019 cruise up the coast of Norway to the North Cape, we took several tours from Nordic Visitor.
They were excellent. I highly recommend them. These were individual day tours when our ship docked in ports.
