Herdis is an amazing tour guide. She is extremely well versed in all aspects of Icelandic history, geography, culture and current events and made our trip a complete joy with her delightful sense of humor. Herdis illuminated each stop on our journey with interesting, insightful stories about the places we visited. She made sure at every turn we were well cared for and comfortable, making adjustments quickly and seamlessly as the needs of the group required. We came away from our trip with a thorough, indepth understanding of Iceland because of her intrepid guidance! I can’t wait to go back.
Travelling around Iceland with Herdis was truly the experience of a lifetime. Her in-depth knowledge of all things Iceland (history, culture, language, environment, ect) was amazing. Her humor and caring nature takes the trip from a great sightseeing tour to a truly holistic full mind-body experience.
