REVIEW: “South Coast Tour... Fabulous!”

“[…] it is absolutely worth spending the extra money and taking a private tour. Orri was able to take us off roading to some magnificent areas. Truly breathtaking scenery. We were able to stop where and whenever we wanted to take pictures. Orri was a pleasure to talk to and shared his love and knowledge of his beautiful country.” …

REVIEW: “South Coast Tour”

“[…] Because our tour was just two of us, we were free to tailor the tour to our interests and even take some “adventurous” routes to a lighthouse and to a viewpoint high above Reykjavik to see the city at night. Iceland is an special place and being able to be at the places you use for your desktop background was something I’ll never forget. Discover Iceland was top-notch in making your trip as special as the landscape itself.”…
