I am usually a do-it-yourself vacation planner for myself and my family, but I am so glad that I had the good sense to contact Thor (based on a high recommendation from well-travelled friends) for my extended family's 1 week vacation in Iceland. My group of 6 ranged from 78 year olds to 12 year olds, and everyone had a wonderful time. Although it was rainy and cold when we arrived, Thor's mantra- "high spirits and appropriate gear go a long way" and "we don't let weather stop us" trickled down. :) Thor was very responsive, warm and professional from the beginning of our communication several months before our trip. The personalized attention to tailor each day to the energy level of the seniors in our group while keeping the young ones very well occupied was wonderful. Thor was very communicative throughout the pre-trip process, answering questions, offering many different excursion options for us. He planned a wonderful itinerary for us. He found us delightful country cottages with beautiful vistas. He helped us go supermarket shopping (not easy in foreign country!), recommending Icelandic foods which helped us get to know the Icelandic culture. He was like a friend, offering us his children's clothing to supplement for inclement weather. He always reassured us we could call him with any questions. Thor was with us at the beginning and the end days and his colleague Harpa for 4 days in between. Harpa was professional, warm and wonderful. I was worried about being in the car for long periods, but our days were structured with short rides in between beautiful sites. She was also an excellent driver (with a very comfortable car), and I never worried about safety (and no one got carsick!). She gave terrific facts about Iceland, the sites we were seeing, and personal stories of growing up in the Icelandic culture. She would drop us off at the entrance, give advice on the best paths to take with my elderly parents, and pick us up (crucial in the rain and cold!). She was clearly an expert who loved her country and sharing it with others. She shared her licorice with us and advised us on buying sweets and gifts to bring home. She was great with our children, telling troll stories, holiday traditions. She even would text us at night with Northern Lights forecasts after she dropped us off! My parents are hard to please and well travelled throughout the world, and they were very pleased with this whole experience. They have been telling everyone back home how lovely it is. We love Iceland and the people. I would recommend Thor and Iceland Day Trips to everyone. You will not be disappointed.

We booked with Thor for a private excursion to see the Northern Lights. Thor was diligent and checked in with us hey day, arrived promptly and then treated us to a wonderful night. We saw so many lights, Thor tracked them across Iceland I think. I will never forget this trip...but man it’s cold!

Thank you. We had a very good (and cold) night - it was hard to leave with so much northern lights activity going on.

Thor was extremely personable and helpful from the initial point of contact. We spoke on the phone and exchanged plenty of emails regarding our expectations for the private tour of Golden Circle and Southern region of Iceland. Not once did I feel rushed or forced to make a decision and even when I was facing issues with payment, Thor was immensely patient and thoughtful to support me in solving the issue. Days before departure, I was also given information about the weather in Iceland to help me prepare better. Thor arranged for Hugi to be our guide for the tour. It was obvious very early on that he enjoys what he does and that the trip from that point on was going to be very interesting. A private tour gave us (or Hugi mostly, as we gave him complete freedom to do what he does best) the opportunity to shuffle the itinerary according to time/weather and chance encounters. For example, we took an unscheduled detour to greet some Icelandic horses that were grazing in a very picturesque area. Hugi made sure we were cozy and entertained (with live music at one point) throughout the trip and he quickly became more friend than just a guide. He possesses a wealth of knowledge, always eager to share information on Iceland, its history, culture and stories. Towards the end of the trip, Thor called and personally made sure we were alright and having a great time. When we had to unexpectedly change the final item on our agenda, he did not hesitate and immediately supported in making sure we had all the right resources to ensure our comfort. We had a fantastic trip and thanks to this great experience, we are already planning to come back to Iceland and will definitely engage Thor and his brilliant team to help us plan more great Icelandic adventures!

Thor provided a trip of a lifetime. For months prior to the journey, he was extremely responsive and helpful on all parts of our journey. The trip was epic. From seeing the Northern lights 3 nights we were there, to amazing scenery, food and experiences - it was all made 100% better with having a private guide to not only safety transport our family - but provide extremely great knowledge and passion about the beautiful country. The agenda was tailored and flexible to our moods/desires each day and balanced adventure with relaxation. Even when the tour was over, Thor would send us tips on hunting the lights and places to eat/visit in the city. I would highly recommend the private tour and Thor & team!
