We had a fantastic time with Valþór, he went over and beyond what we hoped of the trip taking us to places well off the beaten track. The jeep we were in was incredible, so much so we couldn’t help but feel a little smug after seeing the mini buses with hoards of people in. Booking a private tour was the best decision we made and his knowledge of Iceland was excellent. We had an amazing time and would strongly recommend spending the extra and having a private tour with Valpor. Thank you again!

Really nice tourguide and very big knowledge about the surroundings and history of Iceland. We would definitely do this again this way and would recommend everybody to do it this way if possible. No lines, personal info, no waiting on others and all flex. The extra stops were super. We had a great day and saw a lot in a few hours with our guide Pedi

Everything went great! We can highly recommend both the tour and the company. Very flexible and accommodating. We had a wonderful day.

Fantastic trip, nothing was to much trouble for the guide, an amazing experience :) Only issue was the Black Death, blew me tits off!

Very polite and nice driver. He had much knowledge about Iceland in general and where we went.
