We love Villi! He took us on the best trip ever ever of Iceland! We saw so many sights in just one special day and the golden circle - and some special things just for locals. We covered so much - and loved our time with him. He is extremely knowledgeable and fun and pleasant to be with. He is our new friend and we hope to tour with him again.

Our 7 day trip was made up of an extended family of 11 people ranging from 3 to 83 years old. Villy did an OUTSTANDING job organizing a trip that each one of us thoroughly enjoyed!!!!! A very difficult job considering the age ranges and the rough terrain of Iceland. I think we saw all the highlights Iceland had to offer with out feeling harried or rushed. Each day was filled with amazing adventures; the blue lagoon, horse farm with hot tub and personal chef, waterfalls, inside a glacier tour, volcano cave tour, iceberg lagoon, reykjavik (I can't remember their very difficult names). Villy was flexible, patient and kind (especially with our combined 5 young boys....very loud in the van). Our boys adored Villy! They teared up at the airport when we had to leave. I was sad to leave and I can't wait to go back!!! I would definitely go with villi again!!!! He gave us a truly authentic taste of Iceland.

Between Hilmar and Villi, these two guys couldn't have done any more to make our trip amazing. There was great attention to detail and everything we did for 4 days was top drawer. The highlights for us were: Snowmobiling on a Glacier in August, Driving ATV's over a dormant Volcano on the way to the Blue Lagoon. The Lagoon is a total tourist trap and I was sure I was going to hate it, but it is awesome. An adventurous trip into the Valley of Thor and a picnic lunch at the foot of the Glacier. The weather this day reached a high of 23 degrees Celsius....it was something else.

I went on a trip to Iceland with my mother and we were fortunate enough to be in Villi's exceptional hands. He took excellent care of us and made our trip even better than we could imagine. Snowmobiling on the glacier was like being on the moon and will always rank as a top life experience. He went above and beyond to make sure we saw the country to the max. My mother wanted to get pictures of the northern lights. They weren't very visible on our scheduled outing to go see them, so he took us out again to another spot later so she could get the shot she wanted. Anyone I know who goes to Iceland, I immediately set up with him so they too, can be in the best hands. I wish every country I visited had its own Villi.

My husband and I were part of a group of 40 business executives on a three day trip to Iceland. Our (too) short trip was packed with amazing adventures planned by Villi. From snowmobiling on a glacier and riding ATVs on a volcano to floating in the Blue Lagoon and dining on delicious cuisine, we experienced Iceland to the hilt. Villi imparted his love of Iceland through his passionate words, stories and songs and we left longing to return with our family. We had an exceptional trip made possible by Villi's charisma, humor, creativity and attention to detail.
