A Recent Review of this guide
What a fantastic day tour! A friend recommended Tours by Locals. I read the favorable comments about Stefan and decided to book. The reviews did not disappoint! The beautiful black sand beaches with amazing basalt columns, walking on a glacier (highlight of our trip!), stunning waterfalls with rainbows and viewing an ever changing terrain, made for a memorable experience! Stefan's knowledge and love of Iceland made the trip!
