Was blessed with a sunny day. The scenery is stunning with many weird shaped islands and rocks. Go in the puffin season. Also saw fulmars, razorbills and guillimot. The guide stopped the boat in a cave and played a tune on his saxaphone. A moment I will never forget

The tour itself was great but the sound system is very poor-- we could hardly hear most of the commentary (we thought they were speaking Icelandic--when it was actually English) As an adventure, there was a small fire and the tour lasted an extra 30 min while it was repaired.

After an initial false start due to Eagle Air, Alfred Alfredsson of Viking Tours was the perfect guide on my day tour of Vestmannaeyjar. I had to book the return flight from Reykjavik and tour through Eagle Air, but they fail to explain in their brochure that there is a 2 hour gap between landing on Vestmannaeyjar and the start...

We took the bus tour because it was cheaper and we were travelling on a budget. We happened to be the only two persons who signed up for the bus tour that day in late May 2013. Instead of cancelling it, they gave us a private tour on a minibus with a very knowledgeable guide/driver, who not only filled us... More

It was a very comfortable boat tour, easy and showing everything in detail. The sea water changed its colour from steel greyish to robin's egg blue, puffins and many kinds of seagulls, beautiful and picturesque geological formations - what a pleasure to make it before going to Eyjafjallajökull ! We started at 7 a.m. from Reykjavík, so we could cross... More

We took the bus tour and were impressed with the guide Alfred because he experienced the outbreak of the volcano himself as a teenager. Thus, he could provide us with very personal memories and made the tour all the more authentic. The bus takes you to all ends of the small island and stops several times. You can get out... More

This two-hour tour by boat around Westman Island close to Heimaey offered close up looks at a wide variety of bird life, plus Orcas (Killer Whales) and very interesting volcanic seashore.

Thank you so much for this fantastic boat trip. Close up views of the bird cliffs and an excellent commentary from the Captain. We were unable to complete the trip because of the high winds but that was to our good fortune. The Captain spotted some activity in the ocean which we went to explore. And we were treated to...

When we got to the island (in July) we had the intent to walk it ourselves, but after a while we realized we didn't want to do that, especially as the weather turned bad - rainy, windy, cold. So we decided to do the Viking Bus Tour. Best decision. We were only there for a day (we did the eagle... More
