When you want flexibility and to see sights at your pace AND have a world class driver/guide to fill you in on ANY question dealing with ICELAND, Baldur as guide and his company are the way to see the sights. We were picked up at the airport at 7 AM right on time and since it was not quite daybreak, we stopped for a coffee and rest stop. The rest of the our day to the Golden Circle and a few other stops was perfect. My mom being in her early 80's absolutely loved the personalized nature of the excursion and how pleasant and informative Baldur was. The car although not the Mercedes mentioned when booking was quite comfortable for the two of us. The sights were awesome and with the walking icelandic encyclopedia driving us, the day was perfect ( which is saying a lot from my mom the toughest critic!)…

I found this private tour thru TripAdvisor...and I am SO glad I did! My husband and I took our two sons and daughter in law, for a 5 day trip to Iceland.We stayed in a cabin outside Selfoss so I booked in a private tour with privateguide.is. It was the best thing we did!! Not only were we picked up at the cabin, exactly on time, but it was in a very roomy van with a fabulous tour guide! She took us all around the Golden Circle, and for 8 hours, we were amazed at the beauty and history of this gorgeous land. The lunch was at a hot house where they grow tomatoes and the soup buffet was to DIE FOR! I highly recommend this for a required stop! We were allowed to climb as much as we wanted to, go places the buses couldn't go, and just truly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you again for your wonderful service!! I'll use you next trip to Iceland because...I'll be back!!!…

Iceland is a beautiful country to visit in winter. The one challenge is getting around with the variable weather and treacherous conditions on the roads. With Private-guide we got an extremely reliable service and knowledgeable driver that made our trip easy and enjoyable.

I began emailing with Baldur, at Private-Guide, back in October about our February trip. (I am a planner:) He responded with tour ideas and pricing and we continued to tweek our itinerary up until the time of my trip. Baldur met us upon arrival at the airport and showed us around Iceland for the next four days. He shared so much knowledge about his country with us, showed us beautiful sites and was just simply a pleasure to spend our days with. As we went along our planned itinerary, he would make changes as needed because of weather and introduce places that I did not even know about. Traveling to Iceland in February can be tricky with driving conditions, I am so thankful that we hired Baldur to transport us safely on our vacation. Even in the better months, having someone tell you what you are looking at as you are driving and exploring is priceless. Money well spent, this service is one that I would highly recommend.…
