  • This was the best tour we did while in Iceland. I highly recommend doing this over a large group tour. We went at our own pace and spent as much or as little time as each site that we wanted. We spent more time at the sites instead of watching people get herded onto busses. He even took us to a cool little restaurant in Vik and made great suggestions on what to order. If you have to splurge largely on one thing in Iceland make it this over a night out on the town you wont regret it.

  • Einar gave us a really good trip, even though it was pouring rain most of the day. We had a lot of questions about the country, language, politics, and more and he answered them thoughtfully and articulately. We had fun, learned a lot, and ,despite the rain, saw some spectacular scenery. I'd definitely go with him again..

  • Highly recommend this tour. The guide was the best!

  • Great tour. Our tour was performed by Moonwalker tours, Bessi Jonsson was the owner and driver. He did a wonderful job. Really great!

  • Had a varied and great day seeing all from Glaciers to Black Sand beaches. Great

  • Our private tour driver told us the path behind the waterfall was closed in Nov but you can go in the summer so we didn't walk to check. But later on, when he stop there again when asked for a bathroom break, we saw people walking behind the fall. Bit upset we miss the chance to walk behind the falls.
