We have booked the Golden Circle and City tour with Walter in early January 2020. Walter is a very entertaining driver, he is prompt and is very experienced especially driving in Iceland's ever changing weather. Walter is also knowledgeable in his line of work, he would often gives out suggestions that only locals would know of.

What struck me the most about him is he is a true blue Icelander. He is very proud of his heritage and he has every desire to share it to anyone who visits this beautiful place. I remember when we went out to dinner with him and he introduced us to 'Hakarl', a very Icelandic dish. It was not a dish for everyone, but we did show Walter that we have the gut for it!

Walter was also flexible and accommodated my parents who were not very good at walking long distances. He was able to quickly adjust the itinerary according to my parent's ability to get around. Thank you!

In summary, if you book your trip with Walter, don't expect a normal tour. There is so much to learn from a local like him. After driving us to the airport, he left us a very beautiful Icelandic quote that goes: 'þetta reddast' or 'Things always have a way of working out in the end'. - and it did.

All the best Walter!

We decided to do a 2 day Iceland stopover before heading to our final destination in Europe. We stayed in a hotel in Keflavik and knew we wanted to see as much as possible during our short time there. We also had 3 little kids with us (5,5,2) so a bus tour would be out of the question. We needed flexibility which a private tour was perfect for. Most bus tours and private tours would depart from Reykjavik but Walter had no problem picking us up from Keflavik. Walter communicated with me via email beforehand so he knew our address and preferred pick up time. He arrived 10 minutes early and even had a carseat for the youngest one ready. He took us to all the golden circle sights, inlcuding a surprise stop at a local farm for some ice cream for the kids. Our favourite part was the extra stop he made for us at the Secret Lagoon. Even though we only had about an hour to spend there, it was perfect. Its a small, local business in the middle of nowhere and far from commercialized like the Blue Lagoon. Next to the secret lagoon was a local tomato plant and Walter even got us a pack of tomatoes from there as a gift (they were soo good!). There was a lot of driving that day but it was the best way to see all of the golden circle sights in a day. I looked up other private tours online before we booked with Walter, but this one was by far the best price for a family of 5.

We booked an airport transfer for 6 people from Keflavik to Reykjavik with Iceland tours by taxi, and have been picked up by Walter Unnarsson.
He was very helpful and service minded, so we booked a Private Golden Circle tour, as well as Blue Lagoon tour with him. As a little extra, he took us to eat in Tomato Farm restaurant (Friðheimar), which was amazing experience on a cold winter day.
In addition to this, Walter really tried to show us Northern lights, even though the luck wasn't with us. He also pulled out some snacks and drinks, just when we needed them most.
Thank you, Walter, for being so patient with us, for your humor and great attitude :) If we visit Iceland again, we'll definitely give you a call.

Walter was exactly what our family of 5 (three teens, two parents) needed to make the Golden Circle a success! We had a great day in the rain, sun, wind, mist, and repeat. Walter went on our schedule, took us everywhere and to a few off the path places. He's easy to talk to, and made our day really great. He also helped with airport transfers and a ride to the Sky Lagon, as well a tour of Reykjanes peninsula. And he went above and beyond to deliver a cell phone that my daughter left behind. Book Walter if you can!

We are 4 couples who travelled together for a 5 day trip to Iceland. Luckily I found Walter on trip advisor and we booked him for airport transfers, the Blue Lagoon, the Golden Circle and the South Island tour. His minibus was perfect for us, comfortable and clean every day.
Walter is reliable and very punctual! He is a funny guy and provided lots of laughs along the way as well as interesting information about Icelandic life.
The icing on the cake for us was when Walter went above and beyond to help us in our quest to see the northern lights! He was very patient and eventually did seek them out - a bucket list moment for us.
Thank you Walter!!!

Our bus tour did not pick us up, however, thankfully, Walter was able to accommodate a tour on the same day, on very short notice. He offered a private tour of the Golden Circle essentials, and also included some secret spots. He was friendly and very patient, and gave us time to explore & savour each spot. He was very knowledgeable about the area. We would highly recommend!!!

The whole tour was super enjoyable. Every stop was better than the previous. Truly get to experience Iceland at it's best in the best way. Our driver Walter Unnarsson was perfect. Extremely attentive to our needs and very knowledgeable. People make the country and he was an amazing representative of Iceland. We hope to be able to come back and see more of this beautiful country.

Our family took Iceland Tours by Taxi last week for Airport transfers, Golden Circle tour , a tour of the South Coast and the Northern Lights. We really appreciated the personal , professional service of Walter. He found some snow for our kids to play in as it wasn’t snowing in town. Also he took us to some great waterfalls, geothermal areas and black sand beach. I also enjoyed talking with him about Icelandic culture - it really made the trip interesting and educational for me. I’d highly recommend Walter’s personalized Taxi tour for seeing Iceland!

We met up with Thor via Iceland Tours by Taxi early in the morning for Day 1 of our 4 day Iceland adventure. Thor was the BEST! He was so knowledgeable and engaging. He took us to all the highlights and some off the beaten path places to enjoy delicious ice cream as well as a tomato farm for a warm lunch.

I would highly recommend Iceland Tours by Taxi and definitely ask for Thor to be your personal guide through this beautiful country.

We, a group of 6, spent a lovely day with Walter. He took us to all the amazing sites in the Golden Circle including a dairy farm with delicious ice creams and a beautiful tomato farm.
Walter is a very nice guy with a sense of humor and drives a very comfortable and well maintained car. We highly recommend his services.
