Einar arranged accommodation, tours and transport for our group of 6 during our time in Iceland including a magnificent 4 day hike along the Laugavegur trail with Haraldur from the Icelandic Mountain company. Einar also took a day out of his time to assist us to make the start of the hike on time after some of our parties luggage was late in arriving into Reykjavik. He also kept in touch while we were travelling to check everything was going well. He made many recommendations which were all greatly appreciated and booked us into suitable accommodation in all places. The only hitch we had was our accommodation in Isafjordur at the Managisting Guesthouse was booked well ahead of time but lost or not recorded. Luckily they had some rooms to fit us in as accommodation in the area can be difficult to get. The only thing I could recommend when touring by rental car is to double check the times and distances between places so you are not too rushed in getting places. If you are considering Iceland, use Getlocal to make all your arrangements. Einar is a true gentleman, great communicator and can’t do enough for you before and during your trip. He even met us at the bus stop after the 4 day hike to take us back to the guesthouse. Thank you for looking after us.

I just wanted to write a quick note on here to say my friend and I are traveling to Iceland later today. It's a big trip to celebrate a 60th birthday. I booked The Massive One tour. High hopes it will be exhilarating and nature at it's very best. I made contact with Einar at Getlocal to verify the pick up details for the trip. He was incredibly helpful to get that one transaction confirmed. And then offered so much help on other general questions. I feel really ready and prepared for this trip. Thank you Einar. I hope I feel as compelled to write a review after the trip! :) Simone x

Great tour ...half the price of the Cruise Ship equivalent. Easy to book online. Sales consultant Einar very helpful and Johanna the tour guide was fantastic - very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. Bus pickup and drop off on time and very comfortable. Very good idea using supplied tablets for extra commentary. I would use them again for all tours especially at the very reasonable price charged. Highly rated

Sam at GetLocal was awesome! We went to a few tour places but this was by far the friendliest, easiest and cheapest. Sam went out of his way to give us great tips for which we're very grateful. We ended up booking everything here because it was simply the best. Would very highly recommend - you'll save time and money and get to see the amazing Iceland without any hassle!

The only place you need to look for booking tours and transport. We researched A LOT, as we were on a relatively tight budget, and the tour prices where almost 40% cheaper than anywhere else we looked. We stupidly missed a tour and woke up in panic, but there was no need to panic as the team put us on another tour almost immediately, (and no, they did not charge us again!!) We can not recommend this company enough, they have the best customer care team who are always there to help you and give you tips for your visit. Thank you for your help and kindness.
