Some of the reviews I have received in my work as a Guide and Storyteller, mostly taken from Tripadvisor.com

What a knowledgable travel guide! This version on the tour took only one-half day and covered everything, with plenty of stops for photos, bathroom breaks, etc. Svanur was able to share information on everything from the geology of the island to anthropology, culture,history,customs,holidays,food,flora and fauna, and a few great jokes! Icelanders have a great sense of humor and he showed that!

Took the Northern Lights Mystery tour on Sept 25. Swan was our guide and he was unbelievable. What a great storyteller, and he knew just the right times to stop, where other buses kept going. JRB552015

The tour guide was called "Swan", apologies if that's wrong, who was fantastic. Lots of great historical information around the island, and it's culture. It took around six hours with a couple of stops for half an hour at a couple of places. Really enjoyed it. Stephen M

It could have been such a boring trip - chasing around Iceland in the freezing cold night, BUT our guide, Swan, was a spectacularly good storyteller! He kept us entertained with both Icelandic folklore, tales explaining Icelandic customs and stories of his own childhood! It was memorable and highly recommended!  Kay500328

Game of thrones tour was amazing got to see some beautiful sites Swan our guide was brilliant very knowledgeable on both game of thrones and iceland history he made the tour really enjoyable and fun and recommend him for your tours he was also an extra in the filming!! Westsussexgirl1

Our tour guide, Swan and our driver Geistley were very good and showed us views of the National Park that I will probably never ever see again in my lifetime. Swan had an amazing knowledge, not just of Game of Thrones but also of Icelandic history (which is what we were looking for!). Also, if you want to meet a real wilding who starred in Games of Thrones as an extra, then Swan is your man. Gabrielle

Our driver Swan (sorry I know I butchered the spelling) was great. He was extremely informative, kept the kids engaged and had a great sense of humor. When the restaurant at the waterfall was unexpectedly closed, he made arrangements for the members of the tour to go to another restaurant to use restrooms or get food. svite

Our second trip was the Golden Circle Tour on 3rd March and our guide Sven the Swan (who I know has been praised elsewhere on TripAdvisor) more than made up for the first guide. He was truly excellent. So informative and funny and generally fabulous. Julie H

I will say though that our tour guide Swan was incredible. I couldn't have listened to him tell stories for hours, he truly deserves some recognition and was the only part of this tour I enjoyed. Candice L

Our tour guide, a chap called Swan, was absolutely great. A massive asset to the company. His knowledge with stories and humour were a joy to listen to. Not just practical stuff like how to try and photograph, but some history, science, culture. Everything from a ghost story, to plasma from the sun to Viking folklore. ThatHairyBloke

Firstly, the pick up was on time and the quality of buses continued to be first rate (and I have been in plenty - this is the A-League in quality!).
Secondly - and the biggest highlight - was our tour guide, whose name sadly I didn't write down (I really couldn't spell it if the truth be known ...). He has been taking tours for twenty years and literally spoke for 90% of the tour, with fascinating and insightful facts not just about what we were seeing/visiting, but more broadly about Icelandic history. Unquestionably the best tour guide I have ever experienced (you can't miss him - very suave looking, with flowing sandy grey shoulder height hair - and a distinctive wooden watch!). MCH2312
