Just wrapped up an outstanding day with my family, traveling comfortably around the Golden Circle with our guide Kent. He came highly recommended from a close friend and did not disappoint. We hit spots that were off the beaten path, like the Cave People of Iceland, as well as the must see spots like Golden Falls. His knowledge of the geology and history of the area was truly impressive. Comfortable vehicle, comfortable pace...

We enjoyed Kent as a guide very much.

Before the trip, I had emailed several guides from the Icelandic tourism board website and decided on Kent because he was very responsive and provided much details of what we were requesting. I told him in general what we were looking for and he came up with a general itinerary that remained flexible. We traded many emails beforehand and he was always quick to answer my questions. When we finally met Kent, we confirmed he is a very down to earth guy and it was easy travelling with him as it felt like relative showing you around.

The best part of our trip was that we never had to deal with large crowds or giant buses hauling people everywhere. We were able to enjoy things at our own pace and saw things that weren't listed in set itineraries offered by other operators.

Some other points about Kent:

- always on time and patiently waited for us when we were moving slowly

- very knowledgeable about the country including culture and history, ask him a question and he will give you very detailed answers

- very knowledgeable about the areas we went to, for example we stopped at random places to watch the lights and stopped a little after sunset at this beach with black sand.

- safe driver, he had to drive through a few snow storms but we all felt comfortable

- never made it seem like it was in his own interest and always provided options of what to do

Our group of nine had three days and did Golden Circle, Northern Lights, South coast with glacier hike, and Blue Lagoon + some surprise stops from Kent all on our private itinerary. If you are looking for a private driver guide, would highly recommend him!

We had a limited time to visit Iceland and Kent was able to take us to places close to Reykjavik that seemed to be off the beaten track and not overly visited by others. His personal stories added richness to the experience. We are very appreciative to have been guided by Kent.

This was my fourth visit to Iceland and my fourth time touring with Kent. As always he did a wonderful job showing me and my friends around. He took us to some cool new, out-of-the-way places that were a bit less touristy, and his commentary can't be beat. Krauma in particular was a lot of fun. He also had some great restaurant suggestions. I'll definitely reach out to Kent when it is time to plan my fifth visit!

Spending the day with Kent learning about the geographic wonders of Iceland was the best part of my holiday there. Kent is an extremely thoughtful and easy-going tour guide that filled my head with places and wonders I can’t even pronounce. I appreciated visiting locations that weren’t full of other tourist, including a surprisingly emotional visit to a farm where his great grandfather lived and worked as a child. Kent is easily the most accommodating tour guide I’ve toured with. What more can I add except that I had a blast and look forward to touring with him again.

Kent does a great job trying to customize tours based on what sights we wanted to see. He offers good historical information as we visit each location. He knows all of the best places to eat and where the good hostels can be found. We liked him so well that we are hiring him again later this month.

We had the good fortune of joining Kent for a Northern Lights Hunt. He is a great guy with a friendly personality an enormous knowledge of Iceland, its culture and history and very good in finding the best spots to view an amazing light display. The photos sent of the trip are really appreciated and are by far better than any we could take.

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the evening hunt and would highly recommend Kent if you are thinking of visiting Iceland.

Kent is such an amazing tour guide and is extremely knowledgeable in the Icelandic culture and history of Iceland. Our group really enjoyed the two days we spent with Kent as he showed us so many breathtaking places, chose incredible places to eat, and chose an awesome cabin with a view for us to stay in night one of our trip.
You will instantly connect with Kent and feel like he is a longtime friend and you will not be disappointed if you chose Kent to be your tour guide. We spent a few more days by ourselves and kept saying how much we missed Kent's company and knowledge. If we go back again or have friends and family visit, we will definitely make sure Kent is their tour guide.

It was easy making instant friends with Kent! His warm & friendly personality, coupled with his knowledge of Icelandic culture as well as hidden treasures of the country resulted in a magical vacation! If you ever get the opportunity, take Kent up on the offer to show you around! You won’t be disappointed!
