“Favourite adventure in South Iceland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011 via mobile

We signed up for the glacier/ice climbing adventure. Tomas waited for us at the main road and drove us to the glacier. He explained the geography and shared a lot of stories and jokes along the way. He clearly knows this part of the world like the back of his hand. Perhaps it is because he is an independent operator, but his tour is special and not at all touristy and commercial. Upon confirmation of the initial booking, on the very user friendly website, he offered tips and advice on Iceland. Even whildt on the glacier, he was continuously concerned about our wellbeing and offered up his gloves to one of the girls in our group who was cold. I would definitely recommend that anyone call on Tg travel if you want to do a glacier walk/climb.

“Brilliant and enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

We went on a glacier walk with Tómas, arranged through Hotel Ranga, and it was brilliant. It was far nicer to just go with a private guide rather than with a large group. Tómas told us all about the area, the volcano craters and glaciers, as well as Icelandic tales. He took us to waterfalls and waited as we climbed to the top to take photos and see the view. The glacier was incredibly beautiful and the walk was one of the best things I have ever done, I'd recommend it to anyone. We always felt safe and looked after, we took far too many amazing photos, and had an experience we'll remember forever. Thank you, Tómas!

“Amazing glacier walk and ice climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011 via mobile

We've just got back to our hotel after a great day walking on the glacier. Our guide Tomas was excellent throughout, knowledgable and friendly, he entertained us with Icelandic fairy tales about the region. Ice climbing was a genuine challenge, but great fun, and leaves you with a real sense of achievement if you can reach the top. Makes the beer taste even better when it's over. Thoroughly recommended for anyone travelling in south Iceland.
