Stefan Helgi V.

Reykjavik, Iceland

I've been a professional authorised / accredited driver/guide since 1988 and still love my job!

I'm proud to be the first guide on the ToursbyLocals system who is still active !!

I also run a bicycle and Segway tour business in Reykjavik.

Former headmaster of the Iceland Tourist Guide School and teacher for 10 years.

When I am not working as a tourist guide I give lectures to students at the Iceland School of Tourism, University of Iceland and Holar University.

I contribute articles and photographs to various printed and online publications.

Thank you Stefan for an amazing day! Your knowledge of the land and history of the area was very informative for our family. Thanks you for adding all the personal touches that made our tour special. We can't wait to come back!
