    First of all, i am not a big fan of guided tours, but the enthusiasm and generosity of Sigurđ was so refreshing and so amusing! He gave us a lot of extra stops, which could gave us a nice view how icelanders live. I love his way of storytelling and the whole idea. He is very entertaining and a charming person who you easily can talk and ask.

    Great day of sight-seeing! Our guide was very informative. He told us about the places we visited, he told stories of Iceland and it's people, he made unscheduled stops to show us things we found interesting. (the lovely horses and an old church that was painted black) he answered our questions and he drove the van. He was a great driver in weather that changed constantly. He was incredible! My only concern, it was a long day and the van was smaller. It felt a bit cramped after 11 hours.

    Probably my favorite day trip from Reykjavík. The guide told us about the waterfall next to the mountain which most other people I talked to skipped. It is not as busy as the South Coast but I liked it way better. The guide gave out a lot of information, was patient (with the people coming too late), and fun. Only thing, he often repeated the same information a few times within a few minutes. But other than that, best guide and best trip in Iceland!
