Dofri was a fantastic guide. We spent the full day with him traveling throughout Iceland leaving Reykjavik early in the morning and then returning in the late afternoon. Dofri is a delightful conversationalist and kept us entertained and informed throughout the day. He had a great trip planned out and allowed us to diverge upon request to see things of interest to us. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to tour Reykjavik and the surrounding areas.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this great review Doug. :) Hope you had a great time and if you or your friends ever need a local advice, don't hesitate to contact. Best New year's wishes from Iceland, Dofri.

WE had a fantastic day with Dofri on this excursion. It was so nice to get off the beaten path and see another part of Iceland's beautiful landscapes. Dofri's knowledge and stories of the area kept us entertained as well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. Hope the rugged road was not too much. :) Best wishes, Dofri.

Doing a private tour was the best thing we did. Dofri was so knowledgeable and accommodating. We were traveling with my mother who tires easily and he was very helpful to her and slowed the pace down so she wouldn't tire as easily. A wonderful experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks! It was a pleasure spending time with you all. :)

My wife and I enjoyed our hike on one of the city mountains. Dofri was friendly and accommodating, and helped motivate us to reach our destination when I tired out due to a touch of the flu. It was a very pleasant and invigorating (that wind!) 4.5 hours

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Tom, for your very kind words. :) I hope you see the Northern lights tonight. If not and you come again for a second try we can do another mountain. :) Best wishes, Dofri.

Dofri was gracious, informative and welcoming. We saw some astonishing and lovely sights and he was able to give us both traditional lore and scientific accounts of each. The tour was long and detailed and my wife, who is Icelandic by birth but a Canadian was delighted by his interest and his stories. He's a natural born narrator. The vehicle was perfect as was the food at the farm we visited. When we go back we would love to take this guy out for dinner!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for those kind words, James and Myra my cousin back to Eggert Ólafsson in Hergilsey. I look forward to dinner next time you are in Iceland. :)

I can not say enough good things about our tour guide Dofri. Not only was he an amazing guide who was super knowledgable about Iceland and all the locations we were visiting but he was also just a super interesting guy who was fun and kind. I highly recommend booking him for a tour if headed to Iceland!

We were so lucky to have found Dofri on ToursByLocals! He provided us with the most magical four hours of our 5 day trip. He took us to undiscovered and hauntingly beautiful places, where there was perfect silence and no other humans as far as the eye could see. He loves his country and is passionate about preserving what is unique and awesome about it, and it comes across in his conversations. He is personable, fun, and engaging. We look forward to coming back and spending another day with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Debbie, for this super wonderful review. I am so glad you could do the tour and that you enjoyed our time together. Hope to see you again, if not next time I come to your place then at least next time you come to Iceland. :) Best wishes to you all, Dofri.

We spent 3 days with Dofri and each was better than the last. He is knowledgeable, personable, and flexible and knows the area like no one else. He will tailor your tour experience to your interests and ability level and take you to places most tourists will never see. He ended our tour with a picnic by a waterfall, complete with a little Icelandic brandy! I highly recommend Dofri. He's the kind of fellow you would like to travel with even if he weren't a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Gary for the review and a great time together. :) My best to you all. Dofri.

Dofri is an excellent guide--knowledgeable, personable, and flexible. He tailored our tour to our interests and ability level and took us to out of the way places that most tourists don't see. His knowledge of the area is unsurpassed. And, he knows the best local restaurants--not another tourist in sight. I highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Gary for your great review. Best wishes, Dofri.

Dofri tailored our tour perfectly to our interests and time constraints. We actually spent 3 days with him and were not disappointed. His knowledge of the Island, its history, its geography, its culture, its food, and even its politics (he was a council member) is unsurpassed. We saw beautiful spots with no other tourists--hidden gems. Dofri's English is excellent and he is a charming and friendly companion--one you would like to travel with if he were not your guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words. I was a pleasure to travel with you all and especially enjoyed your hole-istic view to life. ;) Hope to see you again some day. My best to the others. Dofri.

Dofri was a fantastic guide. Our Golden Circle tour was everything that we hoped for. Dofri gave a lot of Viking history and my grandchildren particularly liked hearing about Dofri's grandfather 28 generations past. He was a powerful chief and Viking Warrior. I recommend Dofri very highly as he made our tour fun and informative. He is Excellent!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this wonderful review! I am so glad you enjoyed the tour and all those stories about my very old grandpa. :) Hope to see you again some day. Best wishes, Dofri.

I cannot say enough great things about Dorfi! He made our 2 days in Reykjavik amazing. We were a group of 5 including my mother and he made us all happy. He helped my daughter with an amazing picture of the geysir erupting! I cannot wait to return to Iceland so I can go on another tour with Dorfri!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stacey and thanks for this great review. I look forward to seeing you again. My best to all of you. Dofri.

We spent a great day with Dofri visiting the highlights along the Golden Circle route, but perhaps even better, special spots off the beaten path. He worked with us to customize the tour to our specific interests and to optimize our available time while in port. We truly felt we had an appreciation of Icelandic culture and traditions at the end of our two days with Dofri and highly recommend touring with him to truly experience Iceland! (Please also see our South Coast review.)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Linda for a really great time with you and your lively group. If you or your friends ever need some local advice regarding a trip to Iceland, don't hesitate to send a mail. Best wishes, Dofri.

Our tour with Dofri was amazing! He took our group of 6 deep into Icelandic sightseeing. Not only were we able to see the amazing sights of Icelandic wonder - waterfalls, beaches, and more, but we also went to locations where other tourists seldom venture. The photo opportunities were endless! Dofri was a gracious host and ambassador to Icelandic tradition, language and culture. This is a don't miss tour with a very special guide. Please also see the review of our Golden Circle tour with Dofri!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda and thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to travel with you and your group. You are one of the few groups that have asked for an introduction to the old Icelandic food culture e.g. the fermented shark, the dried fish, etc. It was wonderful to be able to share that with you. :) Hope you are all doing great and perhaps we see each other again someday. Dofri.

Highly recommend Dofri as a private guide. On time picking us up both days from the ship! Very friendly, safe driver with a great vehicle for 5 plus driver. He knows great stories and very informative about everywhere we visited! Has a great sense of humour which is important when you have a car full of Australians! The hot chocolate that he had with him and surprised us with was very welcome! He went above and beyond for us on the 2 days we were with him! We would love to visit again!

We were two older couples from USA visiting Reykjavik for a week. Dofri did an outstanding job organizing our tours and exposing us to the natural beauty of Iceland. He was an wonderful tour guide with deep understanding of the geology of Iceland, native culture, customs, political and economic landscape. He was a great conversationalist, fluent in English and very responsive to our needs. Dofri made our trip memorable and became a good friend. We recommend him with no reservation whatsoever.

We very much enjoyed having Dofri as our guide. We did the Golden circle tour and he took us to a restaurant attached to a working farm. We looked down at the cows also enjoying their lunch. We had fun and learned a good deal about his beautiful country.
