We spent 3 days in Reykjavik doing 3 different tours and this was by far the very best. The guide (Sergei) was terrific and very informative during the tour. He knew the best picture spots and even took many pictures for us. If you are only going to take one tour in Iceland this should be it.
We only had 1 day in Iceland and we did the south coast private day tour.
Our guide Sergei was great, very friendly and informative.
He was very flexible on what we could see and how much time we spent at each location.
Very highly recommended, I would do another tour with him.
This tour was the highlight of our trip and the first thing I tell people about when they ask about our visit to Iceland! Denis, our tour guide was amazing he's friendly, knowledgeable, a great photographer and goes above and beyond. On the tour, we saw beautiful waterfalls, picture perfect churches, hiked to a glacier, drove to the top of a mountain to see Dyrhólaey, visited a black sand beach, and saw the most amazing views while driving. At each stop, Denis offered to take pictures of us we didn't even have to ask and had us stand in certain locations so that we could get the best shot. Not only did we see amazing sights, we learned so much about Iceland and it's history and of course Denis answered every question we had. He kept us entertained the entire day. On our way back to the hotel, Denis even made a pit stop to the local pharmacy as he remembered that my mom mentioned she wanted to pick up cold medicine earlier in the day and drove us around the town of Reykjavik to show us the best places to eat in town. I can't recommend this tour enough it's worth every penny!
This was a great experience. We booked a private tour because our flight arrived at 7:40 am. We didn't want to lose a day so we booked it from 10 am. Denis was our tour guide and he was phenomenal. He knew a lot about the country. Not only was he our tour guide but our photographer as well. He definitely went above and beyond. It was cold, raining which turned to snow and very windy. He improvised and made it one of the best tours. I would highly recommend it.
This was one of the most amazing experiences of our entire trip! Our private guide Denis went above and beyond in everything we did. From locations, to information, and from 'secret spots' to the best lunch around, he is what made our trip to fantastic!
Worth the money to have a private guide tour you around. They know the worthwhile stops along the way. We even got to pet some Islandic horses, and hike behind the great falls. Was the highlight of our week long stay.
A very exciting trip as the wind was howling in the aftermath of a huge storm, and many other tours were cancelled, but we wanted to go on this tour so Denis ignored the weather and took us anyway. We did the full itinerary, but will always remember walking behind the waterfall at Seljalandsfoss, and braving the wind and rain that hit our faces like bullets to stand on the rocks at Dyrhólaey-the three of us had to hold onto each other to stop being blown away! Denis knew all the best angles for photos and made my camera do things I never knew it could- so thanks Denis for some amazing photos. During our drive we learned a lot about Iceland and its history and also shared our favourite music.We also had our best meal in Iceland at the great restaurant he took us to for lunch. Thanks Denis for a super day in your Landcruiser- we very much enjoyed our day with you, and can only recommend the private tour as an extravagance well worth it for the freedom to explore at your own pace.
