“Omar is amazing...”

Reviewed 24 July 2014

I took my friends to an amazing West Country and Glacier tour. The sightseeing was beautiful with variations of great things Iceland has to offer, e.g. caves, hot springs, waterfalls and glacier experience. The jeep was BIG with every comfort possible (WiFi) so we were able to upload picture as we took them and share the experience with friends. The most amazing thing about the tour was Omar and his endearing personality. He made us laugh a lot and had knowledge with great facts over everything we asked about. We were blown away!!

Can't say enough about Omar. Due to weather, our fight from Hofn to Reykjavik was canceled. We thought we were stuck in tiny (though charming) Hofn until the storm passed - it could've been days. Then Omar appeared at our hotel, and was headed back to Reykjavik. He agreed to give us a lift back to town, a 7-hr drive through a storm.

If that wasn't generous enough, once we hit the road we learned that Omar is friendly, incredibly knowledgeable, and funny. He tirelessly shared his insights about Iceland's history, culture, weather, wildlife, and anything else we could think to ask.

All this while we drove through a crazy winter storm, with snow, sleet, & high winds. Omar's 4-ton truck handled the weather beautifully.

So although our time with IC Iceland wasn't a planned tour, I'm glad to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Omar and would recommend him to anyone looking for an interesting, informative, personable guide. He definitely gets thumbs-up from these nearly-stranded travelers! Thank you Omar!!

My husband and I went on a tour with Omar. It was the best tour we have ever been on. It lasted 10 hours in a monster 4 wheel drive. We toured Gulfloss Waterfalls, Thingvellir, Geyser, drove on to a glacier, through a river to name a few. Better than a big tourist bus and Omar is very knowledgable, friendly and relaxed. Would definitely take the tour again. Had the best lamb soup at Gulfloss.

We had a fantastic trip to Iceland thanks to Omar. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide who went out of his way to make sure that we got to see all the highlights on our “winter visit” tour. He came out to collect us at 1100pm the day we arrived to go hunting for the northern lights as it was the best opportunity to see them on our short trip. He adapted the itinerary to suit us and we managed to see volcanoes, geysers, walk on a glacier as well as relax in the blue lagoon on our short visit. His 4x4 monster truck allows you to go places that the other trips can’t, getting into the country and having the opportunity to get truly off the beaten track. Thanks Omar.
