Owner description: We are a small family company and we like it that way. "Personal guided tours" is the specialty of the house. Going off the beaten track and telling it like it is. Honest and fun. Iceland is a beautiful country and the best way to experience it is with a local guide that loves his/her job and that's exactly what we do. We also do incentive tours for companies that want something really special and fun for their group.

“Iceland at its best with Villi!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

I think we could not have said we visited properly Iceland without trying this wonderful experience with Villi and his great Superjeep.
We reached Þorsmörk from Reykjavik in April, through rivers to ford and very exciting dirt roads, in a very cozy and comfortable Superjeep. The excursion lasted almost 7-8 hours but it wasn't tiring since there were several stops at the waterfall of Seljalandsfoss, at the beautiful canyon of Stakkholtsgja and near the Eyjafjallajokull volcano.
Our guide was really unique, professional and he could pass his passion for this land to us in less than five minutes by telling us jokes and stories about Icelandic history or traditions or everyday life. He even prepared for us delicious sandwiches of smoked lamb and a very strong (but very good) Brennivin to taste. The price was good as well. I can strongly recommend an excursion on a Superjeep, it is a "must do" before leaving this beautiful island.

“A pearl within a treasure chest !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

It's been a while when my girlfriend Karina and i visited Iceland, one of the treasures of this globe.
And - speeking of treasures - a pearl within this treasure chest was certainly our guide Villi !
So, when i stumbled upon his Tripadvisor-page i coudn't resist writing this review because Villi made our trip to one of our greatest experiences ever. Since we try to avoid places crowded with tourists, we often take tours with private guides and Villi was without doubt one of the best we ever met. He is a nice, friendly, calm and warmhearted guy who is extremely responsible and takes care of you. If you are on the wild side of life seeking adventure - Villi is your man, a relaxed companion you can rely on ! And if you are a couple, searching for magical places, or an elderly person or a family who need someone to show you around this wonderfull and pristine country without putting you or your children in jeopardy - he is the one.
