I would appreciate any advice/opinions. I'm really struggling to see the difference between the two tours. Which would you choose? Both include lunch. Both 8 hours. $10 differnce. Does either tour have something major you wouldn't want to miss that the other does not have? There is also another tour which I'll add at the bottom. Tha KS for any help

This all-day tour takes you on a scenic drive through the natural wonders of the Geirangerfjord District. You'll pass the Hornindal Bridge and witness the shimmering, turquoise waters of the nine-mile Stryn Lake. You'll continue to Grodås where a snack of coffee and cakes awaits. Next on your itinerary is a complimentary three-course, Norwegian country lunch at a local hotel. After a delicious meal, you'll have free time to shop for souvenirs and gifts.

En route, you'll pass the Hellesylt Waterfall and the sparkling Hornindalsvannet, Europe's deepest lake. You'll continue along the Nordfjord to Olden, and make your way to Jostedalsbreen National Park, home to Norway's largest glaciers. Here, you'll embark on a self-guided hike (approximately 90-minute roundtrip) to the face of Briksdal Glacier, returning via the same path. After a three-course, meal at a local inn in Briksdalen, you'll travel via Stryn lake to the National Park Centre for a 45 minute visit before you continue via numerous tunnels to Mt. Dalsnibba. At 4,757 feet above sea level, the summit of Mt. Dalsnibba offers panoramic views of Geirangerfjord, the fjord, and the wild Flydal River Valley. From the mountain overlook, you'll descend the serpentine road to Geiranger for your return drive to the pier.
