We have used Tours by Locals in several cities throughout the world and Erla was by far the VERY BEST. She was prompt, friendly, helpful, informative and an all around wonderful lady & tour guide. She went out of her way to make sure we had a great Iceland experience. We loved having her as our guide and would recommend her to anyone traveling to Iceland. Thanks, Erla for a wonderful vacation !!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frank and Demi. It was such an honor guiding you lovely couple along with your lovely friends Marsha, Laurie, Karen and Pat. The six of you are everything a tour guide can ask for. Thank you so much for your wonderful words, the very best one can give to another person. I am very thankful. Hope your Christmas was wonderful and wishing you all a joyful and happy New Year.

Erla is the most wonderful guide! Her personality is one that inspired excitement in each day we were with her. Erla's considerable knowledge gave us a deeper understanding of Iceland's history, geology, geography, foods and customs. We could not have had a better tour with anyone else.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so kindly dear Tom and Celeste - you are the most wonderful people and it was a pure pleasure spending time with you. So very happy that I got to know you. I could not have had a better couple. Thank you.

We had three memorable days in the company of Erla Ruth who was a joy to tour with, and she gave us a thoroughly comprehensive insight into Iceland and all its wonderful attractions as well as adding in a number of her favourite but lesser known sights, that all helped to make the time we spent with her a truly unforgettable experience. A lovely lady and the next time we visit Iceland we will have no hesitation in booking Erla Ruth again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard and Jilly. It was an honour to show you around my beautiful island. Spending time with you two and then later on Roy and Jenny aswell was extremely enjoyable. Hope you are having a wonderful time on your cruise ship and looking very much forward to meeting you again next time you visit Iceland. I´ll be waiting with a smile on my face.

Erla is an absolute treasure. My 76 year old mother and I spent a phenomenal day with her, visiting both some big sites and some smaller treasures along the way, and learning first hand about her country's culture - an experience you simply can't have with a big bus tour. She understood our priorities going in and tailored our adventure, even bringing snacks along the way. We laughed, we had meaningful conversation, and we made a new friend. I can't recommend Erla enough. Book her - it's worth every cent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for these lovely words and for the time we spent together, the pleasure is all mine. And speaking of treasure....right back at you and your wonderful mother dear Lacey.

We had the great fortune of contracting with Erla Ruth for the Golden Circle and Reykjanes Peninsula Tours. From beautiful lakes and waterfalls, we experienced it all. We not only got to see the many sights, but we got a chance to see and get to know the people of Iceland. Her knowledge of the continent made this a very special and memorable trip. Erla Ruth made a real positive impression on all of us and we HIGHLY recommend her as your Icelandic Guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great fortune for me getting to know you, Dennis, Bob and Cathy. Thank you so much for the time we spent together I thoroughly enjoyed it and my humble gratitude for the nice words and review. Very much appreciated.
