Long story short, my children(23 and 25) had a seven hour lay over. I contacted Local Guides and Einar was fantastic. He responded quickly and was patient with all of... read more my questions. My children have reported that he was”GREAT!” He was knowledgeable and understood that they were tired. He happily carried the conversation. They saw lighthouses, the blue lagoon, the bridge connecting the continents and Vikingworld as well as eating breakfast. I’m looking forward to visiting Iceland on day and having a tour given by Einar.
Having just returned from my IMD EMBA class reunion in Iceland with a group and well travelled alumni and very experienced professionals from around the world, l was simply amazed... read more by the breadth and depth of knowledge as well as the soft skills of the local guide we had for our trip. His name is Bryngeir Arnar Bryngeirsson ( Bynni) and he is by far THE best moderator l have ever had !
A teacher by profession, Bynni enjoys working with groups and leads tours during his free time. His background qualification and many years of university academic training was evident from listening to his moderation.
Not only did he provide substance on the plethora of subjects through the days we were together, he never repeated any topic and always had new and interesting discussions about his country. For the entire weekend, the curious group of fellow alumni including myself threw all type of questions at him, some sensitive, ranging from nature, government, economy, immigration, culture, history. He was able to address them all with very open and candid feedback.
Another impressive point was his delivery style and mannerism. In all his moderation, he was informative and not over-bearing, honest yet diplomatic. He was also sensitive to group dynamics and adjusts his style according to the changing interests of the group.
l would highly recommend him to curious visitors looking for authentic insights to Iceland. My group had equally positive feedback about Bynni.
His email contact is
If you do contact him, please let him know

We Spent 3 nights in Iceland. I contacted Einar at Local Guides Iceland for a private tour. Einar picked us up at the airport at 5am... read more and took us back to our Hotel to drop off our luggage. We had breakfast and didn't waste a minute of time from exploring the beauties of Iceland. Day 1, Einar took us to see several waterfalls, as well as dropped us off for a GlacierIce Cave Tour. After an eventful day tour, Einar took us back to have dinner and explained to us that the chances of seeing the Northern Lights were good. He also gave us recommendations on how to see them and told us it would be a waste of time and money to go on a tour searching for it. After dinner, we went back to the hotel, changed and went strolling along the dark coast line and had a spectacular view of the northern lights without paying for a tour. Einar's tips came handy and we saw the NL within 18 hours of being in Iceland. Day 2 Einar picked us up from the hotel and we went to see the tetonic plate, several waterfalls and geysers. At noon, Einar took us over to the snow mobile tour and we rode snow mobiles to a almost extinct ice cave. It was a very eventful day and Einar explained the history of Iceland to us quite well. Day 3, Einar took us south of the island to black sand beach. Along the way there, we visited several waterfalls. We also visited the southern most tip of Iceland which holds a remarkable view of several Glaciers as well as the blacksand beach all in one photo. On our way back we stopped at several more water falls and closed out our evening with drinks at the blue lagoon. Einar did a spectacular job showing us Iceland in 3 days. His service and genuine personality made us feel safe and welcoming. He picked us up at 4am and dropped us off at the airport so we would make our flight out. After leaving Iceland, Einar emailed us photos he took while we were enjoying the views of iceland. Thank you Einar! We had the best experience of our life!
