I had a great time on our tour regardless of the weather which, however dull, I wasn’t even paying attention to because of all the scenery and nice things we got to see! :) Tummas, our guide, was pleasant, easy going, very interesting and knowledgable. So glad I did the tour!

I turned out to be the only person booked for the tour this day, but luckily my guide David decided to carry it through anyway, as his father was also visiting and could join us. I had such a fantastic day with these two gentlemen! David was a very knowledgeable and informative guide who told me all sorts of things about history, traditions and society on the islands. It was of course luxurious to be the only client on the tour, but even with a full group of 7-8 people there would have been plenty of time for questions and discussions. We visited pretty villages and beautiful sights, the nature of the Faroese islands is indeed stunning! Even the weather was relatively cooperative :) We also had the pleasure of having some delicious waffles with home made rhubarb jam and coffee on the way - sold and served in the private kitchen of a very friendly Faroese couple. I would really recommend this tour!

I would highly recommend this tour we had an amazing day. When we booked I advised we are Gluten Free and was advised that would not be a problem, and we had a lovely lunch that accommodated GF people. The tour guide was very informative and a really nice guy, very pleasant. We enjoyed everything about the tour, and we were really pleasantly surprised when we stopped at the ruin of the cathedral and went inside a beautiful wooden house. It was really fascinating. The couple that were also taking the tour were lovely people from NZ so there was just the 4 of us on the tour. Really great and a nice comfy vehicle.
