Our son booked us this tour. He wanted something private and full of culture. The tour really was private, only Ymir, myself, and my wife! Ymir did not disappoint. We were told to not eat anything. Ymir met us at the hotel, and right away, we were served some special baked goods

Thank YOU for the beautiful words <3 I am the lucky one to have met the two of you. Loved every moment with you and thank you for sharing your story - I feel very privilege and deeply touched. Our day together on our Private Gourmet Golden Circle tour was truly spectacular. As we did discuss then of course I take some credit for the good weather as I had my Þór (aka Thor - God of Thunders) neckless on me as always ;) Wishing the two of you nothing but LUCK & LOVE in "this thing called life" <3 LUV from NIceland Magical Iceland Gourmet Guides

This is the second tour I booked with Ymir. My parents and I had a wonderful time with Ymir, who is very knowledgeable yet friendly and funny. We toured many places and sampled food and drinks from many places we would never have known about. We even checked out a local art

Thank YOU for the beautiful words <3 Loved every moment with your parents on my Private Gourmet Golden Circle and with you all on my Reykjavik Food & Wine Tour. Boy - what a life your parents lived - I am grateful for the chance of being part of their life and having them sharing their story with me... AND I just LOVE that you all loved all my food and beer pairing and wine tasting :) It is actually a very good think you mentioned the hours the tour does last, because the tour goes from 1pm and most of the time the tour does last to very close to 6pm... So here is to my future fellow foodies on Reykjavik Food & Wine Tour : "Please do NOT make any plans after our Reykjavik Food & Wine Tour until at least after 7 or 8pm ! ... and do NOT make dinner plans that night as you will be in a nice "food coma" when we´re done with you ;)" Wishing you and your lovely parents nothing but LUCK & LOVE in "this thing called life" <3 LUV from NIceland, Magical Iceland Gourmet Guides

I highly recommend this tour. The food and drink pairings were perfect, just enough of everything topped off with fermented shark and Icelandic vodka...sure, why not! Thanks again, Ymir for providing such a memorable experience that I’ll never forget!

Thank YOU for the beautiful words and fantastic time together :) Deep deep in my heart I know that over time the memory of the fermented shark will fade out and the memory of the bbq lamb fillet, smoked wild goose breast with champagne & raspberry vinaigrette, visit to the secret little "other worldly black house", scallop sashimi with the special white wine, red wine tasting in the local wine bar and truffle chocolate WILL be with you forever ! ;) Wishing you nothing but LUCK & LOVE in "this thing called life"... and nothing but gourmet great food and drinks LUV from NIceland, Team Magical Iceland

As someone who's done a lot of food tours in a lot of different places in the world, this is right up there with the very best. Ymir is an excellent host with not just an amazing knowledge of the surroundings and the food and drink we sampled but also clearly had great

Thank YOU for the beautiful words :) <3 Our Gourmet Golden Circle is indeed sooo much more than "just" a Golden Circle. The PRIVATE experience in the Secret Lagoon in the morning, while served the champagne and selected finger food kind of sets the tone :) We are also blessed with our friendship and connections with the locals AND the fact that we only get the fun- and nature loving, curious FOODIES on our tour. We can´t wait to have you on our Reykjavik Food & Drinks Tour next time you come visiting NIceland ! LUV from the Magical Iceland Team
