    Perfect tour to get introduced to Faroese culture and history. Very informative, you get a very tasty sandwich on the way, and you get to see unique, fantastic photo spots. Saksun and Gjógv are, among others, both must-see locations on the Faroe Islands!

    Smaller tour with better individual experience

    Such a great tour! This tour is smaller and more intimate than some of the larger tour operators on the island. We had a excellent day for photographs and the owner happened to be driving the newer model VW van used on the tour. He was a local, very friendly and anxious to show the best parts of the island. I've been on other tours in a larger van or even a big bus. This was a much better experience. It gives you a chance to talk with the tour guide and with other passengers in a smaller group. I was traveling solo but if my kids were younger, this would be an ideal way to see the highlights of the Faroe Islands. Great driver/guide and tour.

    Our informative guide showed us a good variety of sites on Streymoy. Several waterfalls, villages with turf-roofed houses, etc. He also made some useful adjustments to the tour to account for the weather - as unfortunately it rained all day. We ate a very nice packed lunch sitting in the car. To any Viking enthusiasts who are thinking of booking this tour, do bear in mind that the Viking burial ground is really just a field; you do not see any artifacts. However our tour guide did tell us a lot about the island's history.

    Hi there. Thank you for your review of our tour and for the 5 star rating. WE appreciate it very much. We always have a plan B ready to account for the unpredictable weather here in the Faroe Islands. More artifacts can be seen at the National Museum. Out on the tours, the Viking element is the history, stories and places where the Vikings settled and lived throughout the ages and the traditions that have lived on to this day. Takk fyri :-) Regards David - Heimdal Tours
