Andres was amazing, but it wasn't just the actual tour that was so wonderful, it was also his help in building the perfect day for my wife and I. Our cruise ship was arriving in Reykjavik at 10:00 AM and departing the next day at 2:00. We wanted to do as much as possible in our first day with the limited time we had. We reached out to Andres for help. He worked with us to build a day trip that included everything we wanted to see including recommendations and insight for a spa experience. With his input we decided on a 7 ritual spa experience at the Sky Lagoon instead of the more touristy Blue Lagoon. It was a perfect way to end a wonderful day.

Adres was on-time, knowledgeable, and his sole focus was insuring we got the most value and enjoyment from our time together. If you are looking for a great private experience that will be stress free and perfectly and professionally delivered, Andres, owner of Mercury Grail is the way to go.

Dear 854artyb It is my honnor to read your review. Actually, I haven´t done anything special. I only following some bacis personal rules. It is s simple question to me, "How would I as a traveller like to return from Arty's and his wife country. " Answer is for all of the travellers same. "Not disappointed." Well if I would like to come happy back home then is it same for you and all travellers visiting own or another country. To have it in mind, even tours happen better. There is one important thing for me too. I simply don't like to say goodbye to travellers, forget them and day later they become booking numbers. It is enough for me if my previous travellers give me even Facebook like once per a while so on that way they still will stay fresh in my mind. On that way, people or travellers aren't the only booking numbers. And it works well. Anyway. It wasn't my mention to be so long. Primary I was thinking to write about how interesting you both were. So I do not doubt about your previously travelling since you have knowledge about many things. Thank you for so kind review, Andres

My group of 5 had a great trip with Andres. We left at 10 am from Reykjavik and hit all of the Golden Circle stops with a trip to the Secret Lagoon. We arrived a little early for our Secret Lagoon reservation but he spoke with the staff and they let us in early. It was an enjoyable trip and Andres filled us in on what we needed to know and see at each stop. Coming back, he dropped us off at our dinner location and also helped us figure out luggage storage at the bus station. Thank you, Andres!

Taves7. We have been previously in email touch so I am uncomfortable writing Taves7. :) Anyway. Nearly all of my customers are top travellers, experienced to see other countries or other different areas as their own country. In that way, people are wider as you are too. I really hope you brought back home some new experience and knowledge about Icelandic nature, history, and even the economy we spoke a little about. Would really like to see you again here around. Thank you for this review. Andres

We had a fantastic time on our tour with Andres. He picked us up from our hotel exactly on time and was the perfect driver and tour guide for the next 8 hours or so. Andres is so kind and knowledgeable and most importantly passionate about Iceland and its awesome natural phenomena. He really knows his stuff and goes out of his way to make the day special. It is a trip we will never forget and when we return we will definitely meet up with our new Icelandic/Slovenian friend again. Thanks Andres for a great day, taking time with our 10yr old birthday boy and some amazing geopolitical chat along the way too. Xxx

Chudster. It is just wonderful to be on tour with family like your is. Not only that. I like very much children, so that kind of outstanding boy like your son is, I haven´t seen in a very long time. I would really like to meet him when years will passed. Not to check what he learned. To teach me something. Regarding about the tour itself. You asked, I answered, and it is always better than in cases when travellers aren´t interesting, so they are not asking and the result is a more boring tour with tons of selfies and that´s it. Thank you to be my customer and to become in a group of a small percentage of those travellers who leave reviews here. Wish you happy holidays, Andres

My friend and I had an amazing tour with Andres. Andres was extremely nice and educated us a lot about Iceland’s history. This was our first time in Iceland and it was super nice to have a private tour to go outside of Reykjavík. We also were able to stop by a local ice-cream shop on the way, which was the best ice-cream we have ever had. Would totally recommend this tour and appreciated everything Andres did for us!

I am pleased to receive a review like this one. Comparing with your age are you both interesting in travelling to countries and everything else included or spoken on this tour. I would really wish that your business career will be the same as a present for your graduation. Full of brightness and happy times. Thanks again, Andres

Highly recommend!! Andres with Mercury Grail was such a knowledgeable, fun guide to take this private tour with in Iceland. He knew the best places to take us and accommodated our every desire. We are photographers by hobby and he knew the best times to take photos and where to go. He was a pleasure to be with for this full day trip.

Christelle. This review means for me, that you are already unpacked your traveling cloth and starting work. Timing is somehow on the way you told me will do. Thank you to be my guest. You really are both wonderful people, and kind of travelers, never complaining. It is enough to make for you private and give flexibility what I am good to do. It was my pleasure to be with you. Wish you all the best, Andres

My partner and I had a wonderful private tour with Andres. His knowledge, passion and enthusiasm was fantastic. We squeezed a lot into the day but never felt rushed. It was magical seeing all the sites and some of the more quirky aspects of the attractions. Highly recommended.

Gary Thank you very much for your review. It was my pleasure to be with you, and show you a small part of Iceland on our tour. Our previous conversation helped me, so we can manage all the needed things I promised. Somehow it happens that I often get travelers from your city and neighborhood there. Really feel that UK call me, to stay there for few days. Thank again to be my customer. Andres

Words can not show enough appreciation to Andres from Mercury grail. A very thoughtful person who only wants to give you the best possible experience of Iceland. He delayed the time of our tour to avoid busy tourist times at locations, also did the tour in reverse to all other companies. He left you alone if he didnt feel he needed to be there, but also came at the right times to explain things to us. As it was our Wedding anniversary, he bought cakes for my wife and I after seeing the amazing Gullfoss waterfall in cold and windy conditions, such great timing and shows what sort of person he is. We also had the Northern lights tour included after, which miraculously went ahead with great success after days of cloudy skies and storms. The lights showed up shortly after our break between tours, where Andre's quickly picked us up and took us away from the city's bright lights with Hercules (his incredibly well behaved labrador) to see the lights dancing across the sky. What an amazing last day to our holiday in Iceland!

Yethwa08, Thank you for this review. Yes I decide to make same tour on different way due to terrible storm and other things travellers might not like or can decrease quality of tour at all. And it happens just good I believe. For northern lights you also were lucky of date and time as these days we had constantly cloudy by night time. We got it on correct one location, and I am happy too since one couple more leave country with new memories. Before your arrival we have been in email communication and it is also way to touch a bit person what they would like what not. Would really like to see you on any kind of tour in Iceland again, since you both are very harmonized person, and I am happy to be with you on your anniversary. Andres

Andres was the perfect guide for our Golden Circle tour, including the Secret Lagoon. He is very experienced, knowledgeable, personable, and an excellent driver! We (four couples) enjoyed every minute of this memorable adventure.

Terri. Thank you for your review. I really enjoy being with your families on tours. Somehow I realize very quickly that you all are real travelers interesting not only on water-based attractions, also on other historical facts and life in Iceland and so on. Distances just came to be shorter than before that´s why I believe, some of you will return back to Iceland. Wish you all the best. Andres

Andres was a great guide. It was nice to have a private tour with just Andres driving me and my sister around. Andres would drive us to a sight, explaining the history and other facts about it and then let us explore on our own. Really enjoyed this day.

Thank you, Katie. You really are wonderful travellers and I would wish to see you here in Iceland again. Thank you also for review. It was approved just immediately after some concerns on this website, since see 20 reviews less than it actual need to be. Your review proves that something is coming back to right one way.
