What a perfect day with Bjorn. He is patient, kind, and very knowledgeable about the area. He made all of us feel comfortable, not rushed, and delivered us back to our hotel happy! I would highly suggest this tour and Bjorn. We suggest going with the 8 or 10 hour tour, you wont be disappointed!

Four of us had a wonderful day with Bjorn. He was personable, funny and had a wealth of knowledge about Iceland and all the sites we visited on the Golden Circle Tour. Two of us had done the Golden Circle before, but were so glad we did it again with Bjorn's insights (plus, by not driving ourselves, we we're able to enjoy the scenery so much more!) We would definitely choose Bjorn again for a day trip from Reykjavik.

Thanks to Bjorn, we had a wonderful day. He provided us with so much information in a creative and relaxed way. He was eager to expose us to the physical beauty of the country, while avoiding the common path and crowds. Bjorn is an excellent driver and fun to be with. We highly recommend his tour.

Bjorn was a great guide. We both liked him from the start of our tour. He is very informative, funny and charming. When you book a tour like this you are relying on thr website and yours doesn't disappoint. I read about a lot of your guides and the two I picked for us were both great. Thanks a lot.

I would highly recommend Bjorn if you are touring in Iceland. Our trip around the golden circle was everything that could be expected and more. We were here for a cruise so there were large crowds in town. Bjorn made sure to stage the tour in such a way that we avoided the buses and crowds so every site was more pleasant and enjoyable. He even brought us to a lovely local stop for lunch. Bjorn was very informative about history, geology, culture, cuisine and even politics. We loved our tour!

Marvelous guide. Beautiful Audi. Remembered to bring water and rain gear. Very knowledgeable. A wonderful, enjoyable, and intelligent guide. He brought us a chocolate bar (but we forgot to take it). Bjorn is a great person and an excellent driver/guide.

Bjorn is AWESOME! He is very well informed on his Country of Iceland, is very proud and shows it to his clients with great skill. He is aware of how to take in an attraction without feeling like you are tied in with the masses. He times his stops well and is aware of areas to park to access the attraction without feeling like herded sheep. His English was impeccable, his vehicle was spotless and he was a pleasure to spend the day with. Highly Recommend! Mushroom Restaurant is a treat. Jay Bruner-Wis

If you are visiting Iceland, Bjorn is a fabulous tour guide and is the man you are looking for. He custom designed the day he spent with my husband and I. He graciously helped me find the former home I lived in with my family in Keflavik. I didn't even have an address and he was able to locate it for me. He is extremely knowledgeable an very patient while you are enjoying the beautiful sights of Iceland. He made sure that there was plenty of time to see everything on our list!! The best!

We were in Iceland for only 6 days and wanted to see as much as possible. This included the classic Golden Circle tour of a lot of Iceland's most famous sites. Bjorn took us on the perfect tour to let us see as much as possible in a day's time. This included the standard icons as well as many things we wouldn't have seen if we had tried it on our own. He knew everything about Iceland and its history, was friendly and personable. I would highly recommend him for any kind of tour in Iceland.

Bjorn is fantastic! He has an easy going manner that immediately made us feel at ease and his car is the pinnacle of comfort. He helped us make the best use of our limited time available, showing us highlights and taking us out for scenic walks. He quickly tailored the drive to our interests and gave us time to explore. Fantastic guide and a beautiful place. Highly recommended. Will definitely use again. A++

Bjorn was amazing as our guide on the Golden Circle tour. He was on time, prompt and knew how to navigate the sometimes-crowded tourist areas. He had many interesting insights and stories about the places and things we saw, and was a great conversationalist with a deep history and understanding of Iceland. We would highly recommend Bjorn as your guide!

We are extremely happy with your service and your thoughtfulness in making last minute changes by taking us out to the Blue Lagoon. Our half day was very special as we got to try the famous hot dog and french fries. The whole procedure connecting with you through our travel agent assured us we will be met. We had a memorable time.

Bjorn is an incredible guide. We spent 6 hours on the Golden Circle tour and were amazed at all we were able to experience. From the rift between continents in the national park, to the geyser and geothermal areas, to some of the most beautiful waterfalls, his knowledge of the history and local color made this one of the best tours we have ever taken. We were even able to see and pet some Icelandic horses. Bjorn truly loves his country and this quality really enhanced the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Judy. It was a great day.

We enjoyed being with Bjorn. Really informative, as well as his personality and sense of humor. He picked us up at the airport on our arrival and then provided an excellent drive-around tour of the city that oriented us well for the rest of our stay. For the Americans, he is very fluent in English and has traveled in the US multiple times.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words Tom! It was a pleasure being your guide and showing you my city. Hope you enjoyed Iceland.

We went hunting for the Northern Lights with Bjorn and had a great time. Bjorn is a very pleasant and competent guide. He drove safely and took us to dark places outside the city. My photography tripod was not usable but he made his own available which made photographing the Aurora possible. We would recommend him to our friends.
