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!
Sergei was fantastic. We would tour with him again without question.
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!!!
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.

Great and relaxed tour on our own schedule. Sergei is an awesome guide and I look forward to coming back in the summer and using his services again. He showed us the wonders of Iceland and was very informative. Knowing that we were planning to go on our own the next day he emailed us with weather updates and provided a bunch of recommendations of things we could see ourselves.
I have no problems recommending this one. A definite winner here!
Sergei was a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to make our tour a memorable experience. The scenery was beautiful, and each stop was unique: walking behind Seljalandsfoss, hiking up the side of Skogafoss, and walking along the black sand beach and basalt columns of Reynisfjara, and more. Even on a rainy day, it was truly an amazing experience!

Excellent day only spoiled by the rain Sergai was a great guide who was friendly and nothing was to much trouble for him,only thing I have as a negative was the off road part of the tour, I don't think the view at the end was worth the journey to get there but would definitely recommend this tour
