After an initial false start due to Eagle Air, Alfred Alfredsson of Viking Tours was the perfect guide on my day tour of Vestmannaeyjar. I had to book the return flight from Reykjavik and tour through Eagle Air, but they fail to explain in their brochure that there is a 2 hour gap between landing on Vestmannaeyjar and the start of the tour; very frustrating! But Alfred was more than obliging and I enjoyed a wonderful tour of this beautiful piece of Iceland. Birdwatching, a cruise and great photo opportunities made this a highlight of my recent trip. Thanks Alfred!

Thank Matthew P

We took the bus tour because it was cheaper and we were travelling on a budget. We happened to be the only two persons who signed up for the bus tour that day in late May 2013. Instead of cancelling it, they gave us a private tour on a minibus with a very knowledgeable guide/driver, who not only filled us in on the local history and sagas but also on the local gossips :-D We visited some places of interest around Heimaey that were accessible by car and our guide showed us where he lived when the big eruption happened in 1973 and told us his first-hand account of the event. Very interesting. Would recommend.

It was a very comfortable boat tour, easy and showing everything in detail. The sea water changed its colour from steel greyish to robin's egg blue, puffins and many kinds of seagulls, beautiful and picturesque geological formations - what a pleasure to make it before going to Eyjafjallajökull !
We started at 7 a.m. from Reykjavík, so we could cross the sea in a ferry at 9 00 and we introduced this surprise part in our itinerary to end it at Dyrhólaey instead of the Vik village (and we finished the day in the Blue Laguna)

Dear customer.

Thank you for spending your time to give us a feedback about your experiences. It looks like that you had a very long but beautiful day. Nice that you had the time to come over to Westman Islands and joined our circle boat tour around Heimaey. Thanks for submitting all these really nice pictures of this tour.

Best regards

We took the bus tour and were impressed with the guide Alfred because he experienced the outbreak of the volcano himself as a teenager. Thus, he could provide us with very personal memories and made the tour all the more authentic. The bus takes you to all ends of the small island and stops several times. You can get out to have a look at the landscape as well as historic photos on display and Alfred tells you the story behind them.
