My friend and I booked this tour and had an amazing time. The guide was a great story teller and excellent at communicating with all members of the group - it may be because of his degree in literature :).. The packed lunch was so good and a nice tuch.

The driver was a bit late in picking up in the morning, but other than this everything was fine. The scenery along the hike was awesome. It was foggy on the mountain top when we reached the lighthouse but we managed to take some good photos afterwards. I would still recommend this tour to visitors to Faroe Islands.
