We have been in Iceland one week. And this was the best day!
We (my sister and mom) wanted to see some of the nature that we have heard so much about. But we also wanted to go where there weren't so many tourists. And this we got.
We had an amazing guide (Einar), who was enthusiastic about his work and wanted to tell and show the beautiful places of Iceland.
We got more from this trip than we would have from any busride full of people, because they are flexible about your wishes and wants to make a personal trip for you.
As you can read, we highly recommend this company! :)
Best regards Nanna, Irma & Lotte (Denmark)

After much research (!) and a recommendation from our hotel concierge, we decided to hire Iceland in a Day for a private two-day, one-night tour for our family of four adults. This was a brilliant decision, if I may say so myself--they are a first rate company and we had a tour we will remember all our lives.

We combined the Super Jeep South Coast and Glacier Tour with an ice cave, Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, and black diamond beach tour the second day. We overnighted at Vatnajokull Glacier, so we could be close to the caves the next day. Orri was our A+ driver. He met us at our hotel in Reykjavik the first morning in an awesome super jeep and whisked us away.

I cannot begin to say how happy we were with Orri and the excellent staff (I dealt with Heidur) at Iceland in a Day. Orri is very professional, very interesting, and a just a pleasure to spend time with. I had read excellent reviews of him at TripAdvisor, and no one was exaggerating about his wonderfulness as a guide! In addition, he is passionate about his country and his family traces their Icelandic heritage back for many generations. What a fantastic introduction to a beautiful place and culture!

One day was better than the next. We visited black sand beaches, walked up to water falls, wondered at black basalt column caves, hiked on a glacier with crampons and ice picks, entered the magical world of glacier caves, saw the stunning glacier lagoon in the arctic sunset, picked across a black sand beach littered with ice bergs, and even got a glimpse of the northern lights that night.

The professionalism of the company is so high, we did not miss a thing, even with a bit of weather change. On our second day, we had planned to explore the famous ice caves in Vatnajokull glacier. Orri's car could not quite handle the new snow on the glacier, so Orri hired a local guide with a super super jeep, and without any fuss at all, and made sure we got to see the caves.

Even after we had seen and experienced so much, Orri topped everything. He asked if we would be interested in seeing a bit of Icelandic heritage and took us to an abandoned farm. There we walked around and explored the old buildings, the main home (in pristine shape), and even a tiny wooden church. It was our favorite stop of all!

While this trip is not cheap, it was worth much much more than we actually paid. Orri and Iceland in a Day delivered the tour of a lifetime!

My family (my parents and little sisters) and I all went to Iceland, which was recommended to us by our family friends. We took an amazing 5 day trip circling the entire country of Iceland with our fantastic guide, Orri. Orri was very informative and had a clear passion for his country. We did all sorts of outrageous and interesting things such as going into an Ice cave, into a lava cave, waterfalls, a smoking volcano and more. I was initially skeptical of five days on the road in a different country, however, Orri made it so much fun and I hope to go back soon.

Had a great time touring the Golden Circle with Sven. Even though the weather was less than desirable, my friends and I had a great time on the super jeep. The fun began when we were off road driving towards the glacier. Sven was patient and shared his knowledge about Iceland and its people. Would recommend booking with Sven and his team when visiting Iceland. Thanks for the experience :)

Spent two fabulous days with our guide Christian. Picked us up promptly at 8:00am and then we spent the next 12 hours being entertained, educated, and spellbound by his knowledge and enthusiasm as well as the wondrous sights and activities. We did the "Golden Circle" the first day and then the Snæfellsnes Peninsula on the second day. The Jeep was very comfortable and provided a great off road experience. My wife and I couldn't have been happier. Wish there was a rating higher than Excellent

After a rough start to our vacation due to weather canceling our flights to Hofn, we had a late start after most tours had left. Orie picked us up at the hotel and after a brief discussion about what we wanted to see most, he took us out to the black beaches, across the southern lava fields, showed us natural caves. He had great stories that made the experience truly a unique Iceland experience. We called back later that night and booked the next day too. Another great day of offloading in the Highlands, seeing glaciers, waterfalls, Iceland ponies, and so much information! Orie is a wonderful tour guide and even pointed out the finer points of Iceland hotdogs- a great experience I would have never tried. He even called and made us a reservation at a restaurant that had great food.

I would highlight recommend this company! It was tailored to what we wanted with Orie's knowledge and recommendations to make it better than we could have planned ourselves.
Looking forward to coming back again in the future and will defiantly book with Orie!

Iceland in a day was recommended by our hotel. We wanted a full day tour, with a private guide. We had a lucky day when we got Orry as our guide! Friendly, professional and so full of knowledge. We learned more about Iceland as a country , its nature, culture and its really interesting history in one day than during our hundreds of historylessons at school.. Say no more! Orry really tok care of his customers, giving us choises and suggestions, everything were up to us. We will definitely come back to Iceland, this was my third time. But from no on, only Iceland in a day on guidingtours!

Orrie, you're the best my friend. I hope others utilise your specialised tours:
- An amazing high tech super 4WD that can go anywhere
- Your knowledge of 'secret' places no tourist go (which was obvious);
- And your amazing knowledge of Iceland and all its history.
****As you know we didn't do one day with you. It was too good! Was it 4 days? :)

Асель, my Russian fiancée and I (an Australian) were completely overwhelmed and will never forget the experience you provided. This and all places were simply amazing!

My friend and I were trying to book several different tours and were without success because we were a party of 2. We turned to our own personal day as it was basically the same cost...well we were lucky! Orri was simply amazing taking us on the day tour of many of the South shore sights, Black Volcanic Beaches, Hot Springs and so much more. He tailored the tour to the weather and what we were looking for with sights, a little off road adventure, and non-touristy finds...Bonus was a yummy lunch in a cozy beach side venue. So many interesting facts and great recommendations it kept our adrenaline running. We loved it so much we are booked for a Northern Lights tour tomorrow...can't wait...totally worth every penny and more!

Our group of five from the USA, in search of unique places to explore, traveled to Iceland in mid-January. Imagine being out on the biggest glaciers of the world, wind practically blowing you over, snow drifting over the tops of the icy pack. If it wasn't for the unique arctic vehicles known as “Super Jeeps” designed especially for this harsh environment, we wouldn't have had this fabulous breathtaking adventure. We hired, Einau (Einarolafur.com) a contractor with "ICELAND IN A DAY---PRIVATE SUPER JEEP TOURS" who made it a FUN, exciting and exceptional adventure –one we will never forget. If you are in Iceland, this trip is a must, and you will love having Ainau as your guide. He is professional, speaks many languages including perfect English and is really adept in moving through the snow and ice/find unique adventure spots! Excellent, 5 stars all the way!!!
