Olgier was, by far, the greatest tour guide of all time. His snarky personality, along with his sheer intelligence, made for the best combination ever. First, can we just talk about how many people Olgier helped throughout the day? From PUSHING a German couple's car out of the sand to giving directions to a lost New Zealand couple, he constantly...

The entire experience was warming to the heart. Our guide, Owen Hunt, was the friendliest and most knowledgeable person I have ever had the pleasure of being on a tour with. He knew the area in detail, had a wonderful sense of humor and was so very helpful with the luggage, the camera gear and helping in any way he... More

We Traveled to Iceland with Gate 1 Travel. I don't know if we would have attempted this trip on our on, but with Gate 1's help it was fun and exciting with a minimum of hassle and difficulty on our part. Our Guide was not only knowledgeable but fun and just as enthusiastic about the Aurora Borealis as we were.... More

If you ever visit Iceland DO NOT miss the Photo Tour especially with Olgeir. I took the trip in March and loved the trip for the following reasons: a) Olegir will make you feel at home. Extremely knowledgeable yet patient and flexible..a rare combination. b) The places we visited. We would have never known or visited if it was not... More

I took the 3 day South Coast tour with Olgeir and it was the most wonderful experience. Olgeir is super knowledgable, kind and funny. We had 2 days of bad weather but we managed to make stops whenever the weather permitted and Olgeir was flexible whenever we wanted to stop for photos. He took us to spots that were not... More

Booked a one day tour to the South Coast with Owen. Aside from the great photo advice and leading us to just the right spots to photograph the waterfalls, turns out that Owen taught geology and brought his students to Iceland for many many summers - so he was able to put the whole scene in context with its geological...

Tony was very prompt in getting us a tour designed and suggested that Olgeir would help us best. What a nice chap Olgeir is. Gave great photographic advice and helped me greatly with my wheelchair. He even rearranged for another day for us when conditions were too icy on one of our days. We got to see many out of... More

We spent the day with Olgier, i couldn't recommend this company or Olgeir enough. We email Tony based on a recommendation from my sister who had previously been on a tour. My other half is a keen photographer and i love geography so we thought this would be a happy medium and suit both of us. Booking was easy, service... More

This is a high recommendation of a two day photographic tour I took of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula with Olgeir Andresson. I found Olgeir to be very knowledgeable and professional as well as most amiable and accommodating. Early on, I mentioned I wanted to photograph some waterfalls and Icelandic ponies among other things. That afternoon, Olgeir turned down a side road... More

Excellent from start to finish. Traveled with 5 women age 19 to 70 Jan 3 to 11. Spent 3 full days and nights with Olgeir. I am unable to describe my happiness and pleasure at traveling with a professional photographer of the caliber of Olgeir. I never would have been able to get the photographs I did or my family...
