Our Assets

1. A perfect visit tailored to your needs

We appreciate that every customer has their individual reasons and motives for their visit. Whether you are a scholar doing academic research, a professional wishing to gain new insight and deepen your know-how, or simply interested in the topic, we will plan a visit that caters to your needs.

2. For individuals and for groups

We serve individuals and small groups, as well as larger groups ranging from groups of 20–40 up to, for example, large school visits of more than 100 people.
Just let us know what interests you – we will then plan the perfect visit for you and give you a quotation!

3. Skilled experts

We can provide you with a highly skilled interpreter to accompany you through your visit, so you can make the most of the experience. We can also take care of all practical arrangements.

EXAMPLES OF VISITS WE’VE ARRANGED

Below you can find a few examples of the kind of visits we have organised up to today.

A typical visit lasts for about 1.5 – 2 hours (+ travelling time) and may include observation, interviews, discussions, presentations and other types of interaction.
