Sergei was the most amazing tour guide ever. It was just us three girls and we felt like we were in good hands with Sergei the entire time... All three of us passed out the entire way back to Reykjavik in the car. Lol... Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, if you think you want to do it on your own, don't. It won't be the same... He's so knowledgeable, so patient... We heart you Sergei! My best friend was like, where did you find this guy?! he's awesome! Do the tour... Don't cheat yourself.

I highly recommend this private tour. Sergei is a fantastic guide. He is very informative and explains every bit of the journey. He also went to great lengths to make sure we are well equipped for the cold and icy weather - he brought extra warmers, clamp pons, hot chocolate drink, etc. You will not be disappointed booking this private tour.

Serg is amazing! We did this on our last day and he adjust the tour so that we didn't have to revisit the same places we had gone from our other tours. He is very patient, helpful and prepared! Everything is very well planned and he provides almost everything. I forgot my cap, so he let me borrow his. From the cookies for the horses, to the antibacterial wipes, to hot chocolate in the end! He is awesome! He takes you to the postcard perfect places BEFORE the masses arrive, which is very important! I can not say enough about him and his tour! I would love to do this tour again when it's summertime! Hope to see you again Serg!

Really enjoyed this tour. Great day out with Sergei - he was polite, patient and very knowledgeable. Got to see some waterfalls up close, stunning mountain vistas, glacier, lava deposits and the black sand beaches. Good lunch option and comfortable car. If im back in Iceland i will definitely be booking another one!

Quite possibly the highlight of our trip to Iceland. Sergio could not have been nicer nor more informative about the history and culture of Iceland despite not being a native of Iceland. Our original thought was to tour the area on our own. DO NOT - you will not find some of the hidden treasures Sergio led us to nor would we have learned what we did. The tour was flexible as well based upon our requests.

Sergei is incredible!!!!!!!! I cannot stress enough that this was the best part of our trip!!!!!! Sergei is extremely knowledgeable and kind! My two roommates, who I traveled with, and I felt very comfortable spending the day with him and were very pleased to be in our own vehicle and not on a tour bus with all the other tourists :. He picked us up promptly at 8:30AM and dropped us back at our Air bnb around 8pm. We saw all of the gorgeous sights and even stopped on the side of the road to feed the horses Sergei was kind enough to bring cookies for them!. We feel like we covered so much in just a day, which was very important for us because we were only in Iceland for 4 full days. We were also able to make a few stops to use the restroom and pick up snacks. I wish I could give Sergei even more than 5 stars HE'S THAT AMAZING!! I wish he could take us on tours around the entire world!

this was the most amazing day and the reason was our guide, Sergei Shramko made every single part memorable, exciting, interesting, fun...he knew everything, did everything we wanted to do, lifted us to higher parts we couldn't get to even, lol. we had a great time till much later than we had planned and made unforeseen stops...he encouraged me when i was tired to press on and see just one more thing because it was beautiful and it was so worth it! he saw i was collecting rocks for my stepson and so he collected some for me too...i mean, this guy was born to be a tour guide. and the things we saw were incredible! i would have only wanted to do this tour in 2 days and take more time at each of these incredible stops and just sit and meditate on the wonder of Iceland! no question, this is the best of the best and really cheap for what you get to do!!!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

If I could give this tour 10 stars I would! We toured all the sites the big tours did and twice as many more that they can't get to. Sergei was a wealth of information. He knew all of the perfect photo spots and adjusted the trip to things we found interesting. Waterfalls, beaches, cliffs, a lighthouse, horses, and even a puffin! Don't think twice about taking this tour - it is fantastic. FYI we were there in June and wished we has worn sweaters under our windbreakers.

Two of us had the pleasure of having Sergei as our South Coast of Iceland tour guide. Neither of us wanted to be on a crowded bus tour. We wanted a personalized tour and that is exactly what we got.

Sergei was prompt in picking us up at our hotel in Reykjavik at 8:30am in a very nice, clean and comfortable Nissan Patrol equipped with heated seats and wifi. He was very knowledgeable about history, landmarks and things to do around Iceland. We went off-road to a number of sites the tour buses couldn't drive to. We visited waterfalls, glaciers, high elevation vantage points in the lowlands, beaches, hot springs and numerous breathtaking scenery locations.

This tour is typically around 10 hours but Sergei took us to a couple of extra places that we wanted to see. He ended up spending 11 hours and 15 minutes showing us around the beautiful South Coast of Iceland.

I would without a doubt book another tour with Sergei the next time we are in Iceland.
