The day of the tour was rainy and cold with a strong east wind. We bundled up and arrived at 10:30 for the 11:00 tour. We stood by a boat with the name Viking Tours. After a while some more tourists arrived. They saw a different boat. We all went to the second boat as that looked more like the... More

The boat tour as well as the bus tour are very recommendable! Even in the rain, the Westmann islands are a stunning place to visit. The boat tour gave us nice views of the island of Heimaey and we even saw some killer whales (orca’s) who made this trip even more memorable. The driver/guide from the bus tour was very... More

We took the boat tour around the island. It was worthwile. We enjoyed the saxophone solo by the skipper in a sea cavern. The only disappointment is for the payment system: they don't take the American Express card although they sport an Amex sticker on their door...

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
