After reading a review about Meet the Natives, my adult daughter and I scheduled the evening dinner/class to take place upon our arrival to Iceland and were so glad we did. What a terrific opportunity to learn about the culture, history and language of Iceland, as well as the food culture of this amazing country. Egill was a wonderful host and passionate about imparting his knowledge and, as a musician, shared his amazing talent in singing Icelandic folk tunes. The evening covered so many different facets including eating and preparing traditional Icelandic foods and learning our Icelandic names. We loved the opportunity to talk easily with him, and he was incredibly patient and gracious with our many questions. This was truly one of the highlights of our encounters in Iceland and we recommend it wholeheartedly. The information and experiences we took with us from that night brought depth and meaning to the rest of our stay in Iceland.

If you are looking for an authentic and personal experience The Tin Can Factory is a great investment of time and money. Our family group -11 of us aged 17-63--thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at The Tin Can Factory. Gigja and Egill entertained us with information about Iceland, it's language and culture. They acooked delicious Icelandic traditional foods and gave us the opportunity to make Icelandic pancakes for dessert. We also learned our Icelandic names. I highly recommend this business.

We had a wonderful experience learning about the language and culture of this fabulous country. Since it was our first trip to Iceland and quite early in our stay, our language/culture lesson helped us decipher the street names and understand more about the history of the country. It's a great way to start a trip!

Even though it was only myself in the class, they did not cancel it and I was so glad! I spent an amazing evening with Gigja learning about the culture, language and foods of Iceland. Starting with a delicious tea, followed by some appetizers that are traditional for Christmas, and a main course of Cod and potatoes. Course the Icelandic pancakes for dessert. I took this prior to my trip and the things I learned followed me all over Iceland; herbs and flowers, traditions, etc. I can't say enough of what a wonderful experience it was.

A slightly odd (probably because there was just the 3 of us on this occasion) but very interesting and tasty way to spend an afternoon. We were taught about Icelandic history, culture and language by Egill and then his wife, Gigja, introduced us to some traditional Icelandic foods. Both were lovely people, who were happy to allow the conversation to flow and for us to ask all sorts of questions about Icelandic life. Not suitable for younger children, and you will not come away speaking fluent Icelandic, but the afternoon is recommended for anyone interested in knowing a bit more about the country they are visiting.
