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.

If you are going to Iceland then this should be on your must do list. Four seniors were chauffeured by Denis, on September 6th, 2017, a fun-loving, gregarious, knowledgeable, young man. We saw waterfalls - even walking behind one to our great delight. One of our group uses a cane and Denis assured him he could also do the walk, and assisted him every time there was a difficult step or slippery area close to and behind the falls which was a spectacular treat for us all. We visited a glacier up close and had lunch nearby another waterfall at a delightful restaurant. We went to the black sand beach area to see some amazing formations along the coast. We give this agency the highest marks and can assure you that you will thoroughly enjoy the experience, the guide, the commentary about Iceland, the comfortable ride and the beautiful way to see what the southern coast looks like. You will be picked up and dropped off at your hotel. Imagine how interesting it is when it kept 4 seniors alert, happy, awake and attentive for about 10 hours having arrived in Iceland at 6:30 their time and 3:30 a.m. our body-clock times!! Enjoy!

SPECTACULAR tour. Absolutely loved it. This tour is worth every penny and every minute spent on it. I'd go back and do it again, if I could. We went with a group of 8 friends. The mini bus was very comfortable and had wifi and waters on board. We hit all the main attractions, you'd want to see. Waterfalls, black beach, glacier, and puffins!!!

There's toilets and gift snack shops along the way. It's very comfortable and easy day with incredible sightseeing.

Sergei is an awesome guide. He's very patient and knowledgeable and a fantastic photographer. He took lots of group pictures for us. We had a great time.

We would highly recommend this tour. Sergei was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable and professional.We spent a full day with him, and he knew a lot of out of the way places that most large group tours don't do. Sergei was very thoughtful, and knew where the best photo opportunities would be, often offering to take our photos without us even having to ask. He knew a lot about the history and people, and our ride was extremely comfortable. If we ever return to Iceland, we will surely contact him and schedule all of our sight-seeing needs with him. The best!

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!!!

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
