For example fast food, soup buffet, icelandic cousine and sweet desserts. Meals are NOT included in the price and are payed by guests separately. The trip will end in the afternoon with me rebringing you back to your place

Hello, World! Alessandro from Italy here:) Travelling has always been my main passion - visited 36 countries, hitchhiked more than 30,000 km, lived in 3 different places by my 21. That is how i fell in love with the breathtaking Iceland one and a half years ago. I got to discover the whole island on my multiple trips around the country and to know a lot about different places (from main attractions to hidden spots). Since meeting new people and sharing experiences always were the main points throughout my journeys I could be the suitable host to guide you around the best sceneries you have ever seen!

Where you'll be

I will take you to places I find most fascinating around the golden circle:
-Þingvellir National Park (famous for being the soothing location for a lot of well-known films)
-the Geysir Geothermal Area (yes! this is the Geysir everyone is looking for)
-Gullfoss waterfall (one of Iceland’s most iconic and beloved waterfalls)
-the volcanic crater Kerið (completely oval with a lake in its bottom)
And of course the long picturesque icelandic roads...

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 14 reviews.

Esperienza unica e indimenticabile in giro tra le perle dell’Islanda (anche quelle piu nascoste). Alessandro è puntuale e ti fa sentire subito a casa. È stato un piacere girare insieme nella sua comodissima Dacia Duster. Non posso che consigliare caldamente questa esperienza

I cannot recommend this experience enough!!! Alessandro was incredibly friendly, making me immediately feel comfortable and at ease. Driving around with him feels like spending time with an old friend, there are never awkward moments or silences. He’s funny and kind, and also stops on the road for photo opportunities and to see more, like horses and amazing views. This trip was the perfect start to my Icelandic adventure holiday. He also gave me helpful tips and advice as to getting around in the city and transportation. He was also kind enough to stop at a market during the return so that I could buy breakfast for the next day, before taking me back to my hotel. Again, amazing experience!! P.s. a tutti gli italiani, dovete assolutamente fare questo giro con Alessandro, ne vale la pena!

Im a tough grader. He’s a great guy who cares about providing a great experience. The day was really good but not mind blowing. I’m comparing the sites to Yellowstone and they are not at same level — albeit they aren’t 1 hour from major city either. Good guy. Good deal. If you’re looking for quick excursion that’s a good value then go for it.
