This was the best time ever!! Theo was an absolutely wonderful guide - funny & very informative.
We really enjoyed seeing the filming locations & hearing all of his stories as an extra in the series.
The tour was definitely a high-light during our trip to Iceland. A must for any fellow Game of Throney!!!
Our guide was an extra on GoT for 4 seasons. As such, he was very knowledgeable about the filming locations and general hidden gems of the area. He also supplemented his talking with still shots taken from the show itself so guests could follow along. Most guides give breaks for people to rest or sleep on the coach between distant locations, but this guide spoke the entire time. This is not necessarily a negative, however. If you want to sleep, you can. If you want to be spoken to the entire time, that's also an option. This tour if good for fans and non-fans alike. There are no spoilers for the non-fans, but enough information for the fans to be completely entertained.
What a awesome tour and a fantastic tour guide. Theo, our guide, was not only informative, but so funny. It a dark sarcastic humor, but what do you expect from a Wildling, lol. Gave a lot of inside to the filming of the show. We had such great weather and that just made the day even more special. Would definitely recommend. For a fan of the show, or not. We had a few people on the tour who had never seen the show, and they still had a great time.
We had so much fun with Theo. He was an extra when GOT filmed in Iceland. Wildling, Crow and maybe White Walker?? He had such great stories and extremely knowledgeable and funny!! He also is quite the Viking officianado:)
Our tour group had 15 people and we had a brilliant day. The tour guide was so knowledgable about the show and it was entertaining to hear about his experiences as an extra. He had an epic sense of humor and was happy to chat about Iceland in general too. It is a must do!
I have never watched an episode but my partner is an avid fan. Amazing scenary with the waterfall, walk of the dead etc and a couple of short easy walks broke up the journey. Bit too much talking and relying on pictures but no real atmosphere build up to the various location. Some very tenuous links to fill in the time (horse stable because there were horses in the show! and a museum of rocks and stones). Also very little memorabilia surrounding the show available to buy.
First things first, Theo is incredible! He's incredibly knowledgable about the show, a true Game of Thrones enthusiast, and just an all around nice guy. Going on this tour was like traveling around Iceland with your eccentric uncle. You'll get lots of great life advice, and some great tips for traveling around Iceland. It was the best way to start off my trip, and with such a small group size it was very easy as a solo traveler to feel connected and safe with my fellow Game of Thrones enthusiasts. You won't visit any super touristy places, which is very nice, and if you're lucky enough to have Theo, he might show you some of his favorite places in Iceland. This tour definitely isn't for anyone under the age of 18, but it's an all around good time. Highly recommend!
Our guide - Hvarm - was excellent, full of background information from the Icelandic sagas and local knowledge, as well as Game of Thrones 'behind the scenes'. Clearly, in an 8 hour trip, one cannot cover all of the locations used to film GoT there (some would require helicopter or snowmobile access), so it was good to do as many as we did - Drogon's goatsnack, Ollie's village, the 4 locations in one at the old site of the parliament, all added up to 8 or so shots from the series - and many other microstops of interest throughout the day, made this feel a very packed programme. Definitely recommended!
Whether you're a GOT fan or not you’re going to have the best time on this one of a kind tour. The itinerary, perfect and relevant. The sights, breathtaking! The bus, warm and comfortable and the driver outstanding and plenty of comforts stops were scheduled in.Lastly, the most important part, Theo, the guide, was Unique and knowledgeable and very entertaining! I loved this tour and think anyone would.
