Travelled latish June 2018. Very accommodating. Comfortable vehicle, and always felt safe and well looked after. Good lunch stop. Good communication before the trip. English was OK. Landscape is amazing. We slightly modified the recommended itinerary to add Haifoss and were thrilled with the choice. Most other falls (especially on South Coast Rd) were packed - this was pretty deserted and really wonderful.

Just the flexibility our family of 5 needed to see the main geothermal sights in a half day trip (at very short notice) from Reykjavik. Hjalmar our driver and guide did all he could to make the tour interesting for us and our children (16, 12 and 10). We loved Iceland and the sights are out of this world. Amazing. And our host kicked off a sing-along on the drive back to our hotel. And topped it off with a lovely operatic song (he sings in a choir). Great day.

Fantastic experience with Hjalmar doing the Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon and Northern Lights trips. Hjalmars knowledge and insights made the trips even more interesting and meant we saw the Northern Lights on a night when very few others managed it. The dried fish, Icelandic Shnapps and of course the singing of You'll Never Walk Alone made for the perfect experience!

Hjalmar took me, my husband, and our young adult son on a wonderful trip to the highlights of Iceland in mid August of this year. We spent the drive talking and singing! The sights were fabulous and Hjalmar really went out of his way to make sure we saw everything we wanted to see. We admired the way he learned English later in life in order to run his tour business, and his enthusiastic love for his country. We definitely want to go back to Iceland!

We had such a fantastic day on the south coast tour today.

Hjalmar went past our expectation to make our day even more special. Lots of local knowledge and we saw the best sights.

He also took lots of photos for us :)

Thanks Hjalmar x

We had a fabulous tour with Hjalmar. He knows the region and the history. He talked about his own history in Iceland in another region of Iceland (that I now want to visit). Hjalmar was very willing to answer questions and show us what we asked to see. He accommodated our needs and desires very well. AND he sing opera arias and Icelandic folk songs. WE really enjoyed our trip and highly recommend Daytrips.is
This was my second trip to Iceland. I enjoyed the big bus tour of the previous trip but the jeep trip was better and more personal.

Hjálmar orchestrated an awe-inspiring day for the four of us (2 adults and 2 teens), showing off the best that Iceland has to offer all in one customized action-packed 12+ hour day. I loved how unabashedly proud he is of Iceland; his stories about his country and his family (and his phenomenal singing voice) personalized the trip in a unique way. We can now say that we have a friend in Iceland!

We (me and my dad) saw lots and lots of sights in two days and were very tired by the end but we really appreciated the personal attention to our needs which allowed Hjálmar (the tour guide) to give us a customized tour. Hjálmar has a great signing voice - we loved all of the songs while we were driven by him through the country! Hjálmar gave us lots of tips and information regarding the country. In short, my dad and I really loved it!
