Andres Zoran Ivanovic-Golden Circle
Feb 2020
Mr Ivanovic was an excellent guide. He was very informative and at the end of the tour he dropped us off at the hotel. I left a small pouch in the car on the floor (surprised he saw it) and he returned it to the hotel later that evening. How very nice of him to return to the hotel hours after the tour. In addition to being very personable all during the tour, returning my lost item was very kind. I recommend him.

Thank you for you review Sally. I was really impressed for your group since you have been interested on place we visited, history, nature and else. Not everybody is, so that kind of tours always happens well. I would really like to see you here with me again in other season. Wish you all best. Andres

Great Experience
Feb 2020
Really enjoyed our day with Andres, complete flexibility so we could do and see what we wanted without having to stick to a pre planned agenda . He has a huge amount of knowledge which he was happy to share as well as also being happy to talk about proper life on Iceland from a residence perspective. Really helped with camera settings and locations. Top service in a clean comfy jeep. I would book again with Andres if I return with no hesitation. ......Thanks

Andy It was my pleasure to be with you on tour. I also learned something from you and your part of England. Tours like that always happen well, special for those travelers interesting in areas, history, geology and else. But yes. I have been in situation when travelers didn´t been interesting due to some reason and in the end of tour I feel bad since question in my mind was if I have done something wrong. But travel with was completely opposite since you both were interesting in regular things and details. Regards Andres

Extremely knowledgeable, Great Fun!!

We toured with Andres for 2 days covering: The Golden circle, Geysers, Blue lagoon and the northern lights (they didn't show up when we were there no matter how hard Andres tired to chase them down!

The tour was extremely flexible and he catered to our every need!

At every land mark we visited Andres gave us extensive information which is easy to digest.

I would highly recommend Mercury Grail as your tour provider. They know the best places, they know the insides out of Iceland and they'll make sure you have a great time!!

Thanks Andres and Hercules!

Thank you Sari for this Review. Very true. I haven´t any reason to push aditional preassure on travelers since we are talking about vacations and they are made to relax and not to be on rush. At all speed on both tours wasn´t and will not be in future like Niki Lauda can done, however his or mine business aren´t same one. :) Thank you to be my guest. Andres

Fantastic Excursion
Sep 2018 • Family
Our excursion with Andres could not have been any better. My two brothers and I did the day trip to the golden circle and were very pleased with the trip. Andres was very flexible with timing and was focused on making sure we got the amount of time we wanted at each site. There was never any rush or time deadline like there is when taking a tour bus. Andres was also very personable. We enjoyed plenty of fun conversation that added to our experience as well as getting to know each other more personally. After our excursion was over, Andres even gave us recommendations on other great sites to visit for the rest of our trip. Without a doubt, this is the experience I will highly recommend to anyone going to visit Iceland.

Excellent service
We were picked up by Andres from our apartments nice and early. Andres was a lovely polite man who made us feel very welcome.

We set off in his jeep excited. Andres explained everything to us and was extremely knowledgeable. He chose lovely stop offs for us to explore and take photos.

Every place we visited was explained to us in detail and given as much time as we needed.

I highly recommend this way to travel as it enabled us to come and go at our own pace in a warm comfortable jeep.

We were only in Iceland for a weekend, so we wanted a trip that would give us a lot in just one day - this did not dissappoint! Andres was brilliant from the moment we booked the tour, asking what we wanted to do the most etc. I assumed that we would be in a big 4 x 4 with other people but actually, it was just Andres who picked us up from our hotel and his car was extremely comfortable. As a lady of a certain age, I really appreciated his careful driving and having given my husband the chance to sit up front, was very comfortable in the back, but still had really superb views. Andres went out of his way to make sure that we got the most out of the locations he'd chosen to take us.. This was December with very limited daylight hours. He was informative and knowledgeable about every location and was also happy to answer our many questions about Iceland,including political and social, as we drove along. Andres was very interesting and really good company for the day! Unfortunately we didn't get much sunlight and had intermittent snow so no rainbows at the Gulfoss Waterfall and no Northern Lights.. but as a couple who hadn't visited Iceland before, we were still blown away by all that we saw.
Andres encouraged us to dictate the pace of the day, never once seemed in any hurry to get the tour done and dusted and us back to our hotel. It really was all about us and what we enjoyed. He was also concerned for our safety telling us the best paths and the ones to avoid.
Clearly this tour was more expensive than a bus tour, but not hugely so and having been in the buses they use on the Airport Transfer and knowing what you can see out of the windows, I really can't recommend this 4 x 4 trip highly enough, if you are booking a tour it's well worth spending the extra money! If ever we come back to Iceland, a trip with Andres is the first thing we will book and we'd even book our dates around his availability!! This was a day that we will remember for the rest of our lives - wonderful!!

Sylvia646. You both really are very kind person - couple, and with that kind of people I can do even better. You UK travelers are also surprising me on other way. Somehow percentage of travelers reviewing here isn´t sane as percentage of nationality. It looks like British citizen are reviewing more with longer texts. Ok. Out of statistic. I really would wish you see here again. In some other tour than this one Golden circle which you have already visited. Thank you to be my travelers. Andres

Iceland through the eyes of a local
Nov 2017 • Family
Andres was unavailable when we reached Iceland because of pre-planned trip, however he assigned a wonderful driver/guide who made sure we saw all the interesting sites we needed to see. We failed to see the northern lights but that is not because of absence of persistence but the weather was just not kind to us. We would want to go back and try another expedition to see the northern lights, and we will make sure to reach out to Andres when we decide to make another journey.

Thank you for your review Elizabeth. I am very sorry that weather in two attempts wasn´t been with you. It happened often when weather making troubles, day after departure back home lights just appear again. I am happy Gudmundur done well his job as he never made anyone disapointed. When you are ready to come back again, please contact, so I can make you better vacation.
