    Andres came highly recommended by friends who had been on one of his private tours a few years ago so I got in touch. From the first email which was prompt and full of information so we booked there and then. He arrived promptly and we found him to be extremely knowledgeable about all Icelandic matters from geology to politics. My mobility is poor so he tailored the tour to suit my needs, even dropping us off near an attraction when parking nearby was limited. Andres was the perfect tour guide and we can’t recommend him highly enough.

    We wanted to see the Golden Circle tour but did not want to be on a bus with 40 or more passengers. The perfect solution for us was to take private tour from Mercury Grail with Andres as our guide. This was a great tour and the cost for 2 of us was less than the cost that our Viking cruise was charging for the same tour on a bus full of passengers. Andres was a super guide. Couldn't ask for more

    Andres was very knowledgeable and super friendly. He was flexible to flight delays and bathroom needs and went out of his way to show sights that we had liked to see that wasn’t part of the tour. He knew exactly which spots would give you the best photo opportunities and arranged the day according to the weather and traffic. I would very highly recommend!

    Mr Ivanovic was an excellent guide. He was very informative and at the end of the tour he dropped us off at the hotel. I left a small pouch in the car on the floor (surprised he saw it) and he returned it to the hotel later that evening. How very nice of him to return to the hotel hours after the tour. In addition to being very personable all during the tour, returning my lost item was very kind. I recommend him.

    Really enjoyed our day with Andres, complete flexibility so we could do and see what we wanted without having to stick to a pre planned agenda . He has a huge amount of knowledge which he was happy to share as well as also being happy to talk about proper life on Iceland from a residence perspective. Really helped with camera settings and locations. Top service in a clean comfy jeep. I would book again with Andres if I return with no hesitation. ......Thanks

    Das Preis Leistungsverhältnis für diesen Ausflug stimmt gar nicht. Der Fahrer war freundlich, die Fahrtsehr lang. Wir haben einen Krater, einen Gysir und einen Wasserfall gesehen. Diese Tour hätte man mit einem Mietwagen ohne Allrad für 100 Euro selber besser machen können.

    We toured with Andres for 2 days covering: The Golden circle, Geysers, Blue lagoon and the northern lights (they didn't show up when we were there no matter how hard Andres tired to chase them down! The tour was extremely flexible and he catered to our every need! At every land mark we visited Andres gave us extensive information which is easy to digest. I would highly recommend Mercury Grail as your tour provider. They know the best places, they know the insides out of Iceland and they'll make sure you have a great time!! Thanks Andres and Hercules!

    Our excursion with Andres could not have been any better. My two brothers and I did the day trip to the golden circle and were very pleased with the trip. Andres was very flexible with timing and was focused on making sure we got the amount of time we wanted at each site. There was never any rush or time deadline like there is when taking a tour bus. Andres was also very personable. We enjoyed plenty of fun conversation that added to our experience as well as getting to know each other more personally. After our excursion was over, Andres even gave us recommendations on other great sites to visit for the rest of our trip. Without a doubt, this is the experience I will highly recommend to anyone going to visit Iceland.

    Andres was super committed to our having a great time and he succeeded brilliantly. He made sure we got every photo possible and when we had to dodge the rain we did and then he returned us for our photo shoot. He was also very knowledgeable and it was like being in a class and learning everything about where we were going. He also had a few spots of his own to show us. When we got in the car he was sure to make the point - the day was ours to explore and go as we wanted/perfect way to travel - everything we wanted and everything Andres knew as well. Best guide ever had. If you are booking with Viator in Iceland make sure you ask for a tour with Andres.
