“Amazing day.”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We are a couple in our 50's who have been lucky enough to travel a lot and experience many tours. Javier's golden Circle tour is one of the best we have ever done.
We were on a 2 night stopover in Iceland and wanted to make the best use of our time.
Javier picked us up from our accommodation in the minibus and we set off. He was so knowledgeable about the history, culture and geography of Iceland, and all the time we were driving he was sharing interesting facts and stories about everywhere we passed. We stopped at the big 3 sites...Gulfoss waterfall, Geysir and PIngvellir plus other smaller 'extra' stops. We liked the fact that there was a little walking involved too, but it was optional if you couldn't manage it. We also liked the fact it was a small group - just 15 people.
Our day lasted over 8 hours and was tremendous value for money. It was suitable for all ages from teenage upwards.
Javier is passionate about Iceland and about giving the group an excellent day, and we chatted to other people on the trip who had done his South coast tour and they all recommended that as well.
So now we will have to try to return to Iceland to do his other tours. Thank you Javier for a really fun and educational day.

“The best guide ever”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I spent a few days in Iceland with a group of friends at the end of May - we were there to celebrate our fiftieth birthdays and wanted it to be special. our group went on two tours (Golden Circle and South Shore) with the fabulous Javier as our guide. Iceland was brilliant but he made it extra special - he has an extensive knowledge of both the geology/glaciers/volcanoes and also the country in general. He clearly loves living in Iceland and his enthusiasm is infectious. He never tired of answering our endless questions and was always happy to take photos. We had three teenage girls in our party and even they were fascinated!! Thank you Javier, we will definitely come back for more

“Superfun and educational!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Everyone visiting Iceland and with some time to spare should do a couple of tours with Javier. All of the trips (Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle and South Shore) were simply amazing. His relaxed attitude and intricate knowledge of the country combine to make one great tour guide.

Thanks Javier, it's been great fun!

“Unique experience”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I traveled to Iceland for a few days and I was amazed. It is a magnificent land, with totally unique environement and breathtaking landscape. Javier, with his scientific backround, is the ideal guide to this geological wonder of earth. Apart from the description of the nature surrounding the visitor, he joyfully gave the group an insight in islandic history and political life.

“How to love Iceland”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Javier is an amazing tour guide, passing to us his passion about the geological aspects of the earth. We had a great trip, felt respected in all our wishes and concerns of the group, enjoyed really nice 2 days with Javier and the minibus. If you go to Iceland, ask Javier to guide you, you won't regret!
