Thank you for contacting me. We certainly can recommend Oli. We were also unsure if the cost for a guide was worth it but opted for it due to the fact that we has such a short time in Iceland and weren’t sure what the best sights were etc.
I was very clear to Oli about what our interests were (nature, local Icelandic life and photography) and he accommodated the trip to our needs including many photo opportunities, visit to farms (in some cases we were invited in for coffee and even lunch) and many beautiful natural sites. Having said that when on our trip we expressed a desire to do something else (snowmobiling) he went out of his way to include that too. On our own we would never have seen half the things we did with him as he took us to lesser known places etc.
As a guide he is very knowledgeable and thoroughly entertaining. Icelanders seem to love story telling and he has perfected that art. He gave a deeper insight into every place or thing we saw or did.
To be honest I cannot think of anything negative to say. I recall one evening before leaving my husband telling me that if we knew anyone going to Iceland he would insist that they and use a guide, more specifically Oli.
Good luck with your trip and feel free to contact us with any other queries. My tel no is +27 11 837552669.
Iceland is a truly beautiful place and experience.
