André was a most knowledgeable and wonderfully helpful guide. We had a great time. Even though the weather was not that great. This guide did all he could to make our day worthwhile. It was a terrible cold and rainy day. André took a step further to ensure we were kept out of the rain as much as possible and still see the promised sights of golden circle and blue lagoon. He even bought tickets upfront in good faith. Which we reimbursed only when we met. We certainly would recommend this informative and very helful chap to any day trippers going into Reykjavik.

This was a comprehensive tour of most of the 'best of' and our guide was very accommodating. Just be aware that it's alot of driving and while the scenery is amazing, there's quite a bit of down time as you get from one location to another.

Worst tour I've ever experienced in my many years of travel. This was a personal tour - just my husband, myself, and our tour guide. Too bade they sent a guide that spoke about 12 words of English. This was 12 hours of uncomfortable attempts to communicate. We learned nothing of the local sights or culture. A cab drive that knew some English would have been better. I almost cried out of frustration. A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY

As tour guy , Mr.Andrés was a fantastic person , he did everything to make our tour enjoyable. He extended his time to show us more and more places and also allowed us the time needed on each place.He even called us at 10h30 PM to watch the northern lights outside of our hotel, we were very appreciated for his nice thought.
