I love how someone in a review somewhere wrote that "Villi should be bottled and sold by the Icelandic Government".

It is true.

My brother, my father and me went to Iceland last spring. Luckily someone recommended Villi, so we got in touch with him. He understood exactly what we were looking for, and planned a perfect long day, driving round Iceland - seeing sites, tasting food, driving on the glacier, trying snowmobiles. He is extraordinarily focused on tailoring a special experience - and he managed to do so. His recommendations for restaurants and other things to do in Reykjavik were spot on.

If you were asking me - I would have no doubts, I would highly recommend getting in touch with Villi and ask him to plan a trip with you.

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.

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.
