Our family of six spent three days with Lisa. She was responsive and informative from our initial email conversation onward. She effortlessly balanced driving, timing, and storytelling, all the while optimizing our experiences to minimize our exposure to other tourists. We were all appreciative of her knowledge of Icelandic history and culture and left with a better understanding of Iceland and it's people.

I think Lisa was a very knowledgeable, personable, and overall nice guide. The driver was very late picking us up, But Lisa compensated that with a longer tour.The Ride up to the blue Lagoon was much longer than we were told, but it was a nice drive, and overall we had a lovely time.

Lisa was a great guide. The only problem was that she forgot that we had booked a tour for 8 pax and she came with a car for 4 . She then went back to the rental company and it took her an hour to return with a bigger car while we waited in the cold. She did give us the full tour and we enjoyed the trip.

Lisa arrived late and with the wrong car for our tour. We were 6 adults and she knew that. The car couldn't accommodate my travel wheelchair and it was very uncomfortable for 6 adults. We had to change the car. The tour itself was fine once we finally got going.

Tour: Private Golden Circle with The Secret Lagoon, Reykjavik, Iceland
Date: Feb 20/18

This was our second tour with Lisa in two days (first was South Coast to Glacier Lagoon) and spending our two day-tour days with Lisa was absolutely the best! Lisa took the Golden Circle tour in reverse so we enjoy the Secret Lagoon shortly after it opened before the crowds arrived. The day was simply awesome, with stops at Gullfoss and Thingviller Nat'l Park, lunch at Lindin Restaurant (reindeer burgers!), and a gorgeous drive of amazing scenery. Lisa's sparking personality really made our entire trip!

Touring with Lisa was like touring with a great friend! Lisa was personable, funny, knowledgeable and most important, just plain fun. There were 5 of us and Lisa managed to make sure each of us had a great time. After a long but wonderful day, and despite the unpredictable movement of the clouds, Lisa took us on a Northern Lights hunt and we actually found them thanks to her experience - it was spectacular! Lisa proved to be not only a wonderful guide but also a new friend!

We spent 4 days with Lisa, and this was probably my favorite. The scenery is spectacular!! Magnificent waterfalls, beautiful farmland, lots of Icelandic horses! Lisa grew up in this area and gave us a great education about the area. She took us to the Krauna Geothermal hot pools for a very relaxing couple of hours, and then to a nice bakery for some hot soup and some lively conversation. Great Day!

Lisa met us promptly at the airport and whisked us away on a spectacular journey. She took us to a local bakery before heading out on our Golden Circle tour, and shared some traditional Icelandic Christmas Folklore with us. She was always willing to answer our questions on a variety of topics, and didn't even laugh at our silly questions. We really enjoyed our day with Lisa.

Lisa picked up my husband & two sons at the airport at 6:30 am after we had flown all night. It was the winter solstice (Dec. 21, 2017) so there were only a few hours of light that day. She had the difficult job of trying to keep us awake & showing us around while it was dark. We ventured from place to place in the freezing cold and wind, trying to beat tourists busses and stopping for hot beverages at places the locals go. She told us all about her country & dropped us off at our hotel. Perfect!

Lisa was great! Despite having to replace another driver guide at the last minute, she remains optimistic, kind and helpful. She was patient while we adored the beauty of mother nature but keep us in track of time so that we do not miss another beauty while the sun is up. She also helps to ensure that we got the right location for our Ice caving and glacier hiking activities. An experienced driver too who knows the places very well. We felt safe with her. Thank you Lisa for all the memorable moments!

Lisa was the perfect guide for us 4 inquisitive travelers. She led a very personal tour of her island home. Not only did we see amazing sights off the beaten path on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, we also learned about the social customs, history, recreation, industry, civics, politics, religion, mythology and the people of Iceland. Valhalla, indeed! We especially enjoyed the short hikes she tailored to our needs, and singing in the cave. An amazing day, despite the cold wind and clouds.

Met with Lisa Sunday, September 17th for her tour of Iceland. Lisa was very hospitable and engaging. The four of us found she was a safe driver who knew the area well. We saw a wide variety of landscapes. She personalized our trip once she asked if we were interested in history. With her personalized service, we were able to go at our own pace. Found the day extremely enjoyable. She also made sure to let us know that tipping is not at all acceptable. I would recommend this tour for any small group wanting

Highlight of our stay so far! Despite it being foggy in parts we had an amazing time and really appreciated Lisa's depth of knowledge and her sense of humour. We would thoroughly recommend this tour to everyone and the ride up to the glacier was an adventure in itself! She also introduced us to a delightful cafe, the Bruras Geo-center which had fantastic views and in house roasted coffee to die for! Loved every minute and wish we could do more trips with Lisa. Book early as she gets really busy quickly.

Lisa gave us an amazing day on the west coast of Iceland. She is fluent in English, very knowledgeable about the Icelandic culture, history, and geography. Lisa pointed out many interesting things about the country, answered every question we had and shared her knowledge of the folklore (her specialty) and history of the country. She engaged out teenage children in conversation and offered us the perspective that only a native Icelander could. We highly recommend spending a day touring with Lisa.

This was our second trip with Lisa and she made it a great one, just like the first. In her description of this tour she says it's a long day, but worth it -- and we agree! Lisa picked us up at our rental home in Hveragerdi and drove us all the way to Glacier Lagoon. There we had arranged to ride on the zodiac boats (reservations required) and that was an incredible experience! On the way home we visited two massive, heart-stopping waterfalls. A highlight of the day was a hike to the edge of a glacier.

Lisa is an outstanding guide and we had a fantastic tour of West Iceland. There's a reason this is "Lisa's favorite" - she grew up in this area and knows every inch of territory and lots of people. She had many local stories to tell us in addition to her expertise in history, folklore, geology, and geography. Lisa is also very warm and personable and made the day an enjoyable one. I would travel with Lisa again in a heartbeat -- in fact we did, two days later!

She customized our trip to fit our desired activity levels and places we wanted to visit. Lisa was friendly, knowlegable and made the trip a lot of fun.

It was a gorgeous day and our photos looked retouched they are so good. We treated Lisa to dinner on our way back to town and then, because the weather was good, went Aurora hunting on our way back!

There is nothing better when traveling to a foreign country than being met at the airport by a smiling face and that is exactly what we encountered when we met Lisa upon our arrival. My two teenage sons and I immediately took to her and we were then treated to a fabulous tour of the landscape and all it had to offer on our drive to Reykjavik. We even practiced pronouncing a few Icelandic words. Luckily, we have booked two more tours with Lisa so we can get some more practice in!

510 chatacters may not be enough to talk about Lisa! Obviously she was waiting for us at the airport - with the right size vehicle for our group of 5. She was friendly, helpful and informative on our drive toward Reykjavik. She showed us some things outside the usual touristy box. But that's the norm for Tours By Locals. What was completely unexpected was how she stayed with us when our Air Bnb was not ready for us on time. Instead of dropping us somewhere to wait she canceled a meeting to stay with us!

Lisa is incredibly knowledgable of Icelandic folklore and the countryside as she was born and raised there. We told her the types of things we like and she was able to make a tour perfect for our family. She kept my 3 boys (ages 9, 14, 16) interested and engaged. She took us on stunning scenic (and rural) roads which probably only locals use so we avoided the crush of busy areas while still seeing the wonders of Iceland. We've used several private tour guides. Lisa is one of the best!

Date: Apr 15/16

Wonderful, incredible and first class airport pick up with a thorough historic overview of the beautiful city of Reykjavik. Lisa is a wonderful,warm, caring person, As we were commuting to the city center, Lisa explained some important historical and current tidbits that I found so fascinating and interesting. The downtown is alive with design and lifestyle boutiques and lovely restaurants. A delightful highlight was Hallgrimskirkja, the landmark church. Amazing start to my holiday. Job well done.

I took this tour on April 13. It was a 5 out of 5! Lisa was friendly & knowledgeable about a wide variety of subjects.Her love of Iceland & enthusiasm to share it with visitors was clear. She was also very accommodating with my injured foot which limited my mobility.I selected Lisa because of her background in mythology & ethnology. I enjoyed our conversations & learned a great deal about the philosophy & history of Iceland's culture. Can't say enough good things about our day together. Thank you Lisa!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nora, thank you so much! I had a great time in your company. Hope your toes are healing fast :) Good thoughts!

Lisa is a Hunter! She found the lights - again and again and again. Other cars and buses (lots of buses) would come past where Lisa has taken us but by then those passengers unfortunately saw nothing whereas we'd been marvelling at an amazing natural display. Not just in one place - lots of places. And Lisa was fun to be with and so knowledgable about Iceland, its history, people, horses and culture. If you're considering hunting The Northern Lights - go with Lisa. She's your hunter!

Lisa was amazing and made searching for the lights an experience. She did not give up even though it did not look promising. We were all exhausted from searching and she convinced us to go to one more place. She was right and we saw a spectacular light show. What a wonderful experience and it was all made possible with our guide.

Lisa ensured we had an incredible northern lights experience. We were scheduled to meet at 9, but she'd been tracking the weather and contacted us to suggest we meet at 8 instead. The clouds were moving in and if she hadn't, we would have missed our window. They were fabulous! And, the Icelantic hot choco was yummy! She even shared her recipe. If you get the chance, book a tour with Lisa. She was accommodating, entertaining and knowledgeable. She helped make our Icelantic experience memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sheila, it was a pleasure!
