The photo tour with Skarpi through the Golden Circle was wonderful! Not only did I get to see some absolutely stunning scenery, but I truly learned a lot about photography techniques from Skarpi. Although I'm not entirely novice, I certainly am no expert, so his tutelage was exceptionally appreciated. He helped me with everything from camera settings to composition, compensating... More

After seeing both Tony's and Iurie's pictures, reading the glowing reviews, and in particular Tony's fantastic replies to the only two single star negative reviews (they're gold!) I knew I had to book as many days as possible with these guys and I was not disappointed. We (a mate and I) were in Iceland for 12 days and since Iceland... More

Despite of the terrible weather, we managed to take some nice spots in iceland with variety of tours. Both Tony and Iurie were flexible to ensure the quality of the tours. We are amateur photographers and learnt some photography tips from the guides. (: recommended!

This is a late night trip so get some sleep in the afternoon and make sure you wrap up warm. Super trip with knowledgeable staff

I went back to Iceland in early September after I fell in love with the country back in January. I hired Owen last time for an amazing golden circle tour and I told myself I've got to contact Owen again this time so I did. Owen has organized a day tour for me to go to the central highlands around... More

Tried booking this tour mid-Sept but Tony was unavailable. He recommended we contact another of his colleagues, Skarpi Thrainsson who responded promptly and we decided on a 2 day glacial lagoon and waterfall photo trip. This was the best part of our stay in Iceland. Iceland's landscape is majestic and over the 2 days, Skarpi shared with us vistas of... More

My girlfriend and I did a tour with Lurie of Iceland Aurora Photo tours in June. We did a half day tour which started late evening and went on through the night. As it was Summer solstice the light is best if you go out at night because the sun sets for only a couple of hours and it is... More

Had a chance to visit Iceland and take a photo tour with Tony Prower last month. It was an outstanding trip and there is no way I could have seen all the places I did in the amount of time I had without an experienced guide like Tony. He is an outstanding photographer and has in-depth knowledge of the best... More

Darwin T We had a photo tour with a group of 8 for 2 days. We had a great time, with his suggestion, we took photos at night where the sun only set for 2 hrs and avoid all the other tourist fighting for the photo spot! At Jokulsarlon, we had the whole place to ourselves in the early morning... More

The Jökulsárlón tour drive was long, but the stops in between allowed us to take pictures and refresh. Unlike the typical tour that started at 6 in the morning, this one started at 6 in the evening avoiding heavy traffic and allowed us to take pictures without other tourist in the way. We had a schedule of places to visit,... More
