Dani is excellent as a tour guide, very personable and engaging. He took us to some wonderful spots that we would not have been accessible without us renting a much more rugged vehicle. There were several times we audibly gasped as we pulled up to a couple places. The trip to the tomato farm was worth the trip all by itself. Could not recommend this experience highly enough.

Dani nos hizo pasar a mi pareja y a mi un dia increíble, nos encantó, todas las dudas que teníamos él las despejaba, siempre estuvo pendiente de que estuviéramos cómodos, tomó unas fotos espectaculares, ni hablar de los lugares tan maravillosos a los que nos llevo, sin pensarlo dos veces volvería a buscar a Dani si regresamos a Islandia, definitivamente lo recomiendo, hace que la experiencia sea única e inigualable !!!

I had such a wonderful time seeing some true beauties in the Icelandic Highlands. Dani did an amazing job being welcoming, informative, and helpful. I highly recommend this experience to anyone that wants to venture off the beaten path and see some stunning views of Iceland.

Today was the best experience with Dani! He communicated frequently to update me on pickup, fit us all comfortably in his vehicle, and drove us safely to some of the most amazing landscapes in crazy locations I would have never found otherwise. Highly recommend for a great day to see sights not on the typical tourist route!

What an incredible day. Dani loves what he does and it shows. He is incredibly friendly and knows the roads really well. We went to some of the most magical locations and got to take some really cool pictures as well as fill up our reusable bottles with fresh glacier water! He always had our safety and enjoyment in mind. I loved this experience so much I would do it again!

Such an amazing experience! I was trying to really be present the whole time because I knew it was once in a lifetime - even if I do this experience again it may not be the same locations, and that’s what made this so special. Dani was a wonderful host and was knowledgeable about the falls, the geography, and the translations of the names, which was fun. Dani also kept us safe and as warm as possible. The other people in our excursion were really lovely. Overall one of the best days I spent in Iceland.
