OUR REVIEWS FOR THE TOUR
Even though the weather was not ideal, we had a great tour. Hawk was our guide and he was very informative about the area. I would definitely recommend the small group tour.
One of the best tours ever. We booked this tour and expected to be lifted in a mini bus however due to lack of numbers Gudjon collected the 3 of us in his jeep. He would have been within his rights to cancel the tour but was happy to give us a private tour at no extra cost. He was both informative and entertaining and his passion for the island and its history was infectious.
