Great tour - saw and learned a lot, great guide; Heimaey Island is beautiful

Really nice Heimaey Island tour. This was our 4th trip to Iceland, and visiting Heimaey was always on our list. Our guide/driver Einar was great -- he had a sense of humor, answered our questions, and gave us a lot of information. It was humbling and amazing to be at Ground Zero of Eldfell volcano that exploded in 1973, especially with already knowing the story, having seen documentaries and then hearing more about it "up close and personal" from Einar. The visit to the Sea Life Trust was great -- we got to interact with a rescue puffin. We saw the Beluga whales Little Gray and Little White who are being educated on how to survive in a natural habitat -- they were to be released into a protected nearby cove in a few weeks. There were only 5 of us on the tour with Einar, and that really helped make the tour more personal. Heimaey Island is beautiful - we are so glad we finally got there!

Tour guide was very interesting. We saw puffins and even got a picture with one on our shoulder. We also went to the volcano. Lastly, we saw orcas.

Excellent way to learn about this beatiful island and its history, also about the little puffins. The guide, born and raised here did a great job, his loved for his native land and its history was real. The entire family had a great time spending time with the puffins during the tour and later after 9pm. Thanks

Our guide Eppi was great! He took us all over the island where we saw puffins up close, saw where the 1973 volcano erupted, and he did an abbreviated demonstration of spranga.

This tour was a wonderful introduction to the Westman Islands. Our group was a nice, smaller size. The pace of each stop and the spacing between them was good - we never felt rushed and there was just the right amount of time back on the bus to look out at the scenery and relax. Our tour guide was named Einar Birgir. He was very knowledgeable about the island and we enjoyed his commentary. I took this tour with my two teenagers and my younger child. The length of the tour was just right to keep us all interested and happy. The highlight was when the guide let Tóta the puffin stand on my 6-year-old's head!
