Tummas ( both our guide and trip planner and owner of Heimdal Tours) did an amazing job. He put together an itinerary of hikes that were somewhat off the beaten track. Spectacular views . Very knowledgeable and personable.
Highly recommend his tour company if you are planning a trip to the Faroe Islands.

I was expecting the trip to be amazing, but it was an absolutely incredible experience and blew my expectations out of the water. From the moment I started planning, to the day we left, working with KimKim, Tummas, David, and Eydun couldn't have been better. Everyone was so helpful, the day trips were so beautiful and the schedule was flexible. The hotel was great, transportation right on time and easy, and the destinations we went to I will never forget. Best trip ever and I can't wait to come back!!

One of the best trips I've been on! Our guide, Tummas, was pure joy. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, prepared and fun. Because the weather is unpredictable, he always had a plan "B" which for us was as good as "Plan A". Lunches were delicious and fresh. The daily trips were well planned and we loved being able to experience some the of hidden gems and experience some of the local, off the beaten track cafes and restaurants. I will remember this trip always and will never forget the kindness and generosity of the people of the Faroe Islands and Tummas. A must holiday.

A taxi picked us up at the airport.
Taxi transfer to airport.
It was good but felt like there was not much to do. We were on our own a lot of the time.
The printed itinerary felt like there was a lot to do.

The Mulafossur waterfall was amazing.
We sat the trollfingur and the giant and the hag.
The old capital was adorable. The scenery was stunning. We did an amazing hike with Tummas in the mountains. Wow. Scared and enjoyed it at the same time.

David and Heimdal Tours were excellent. Their service is personalized and they are dedicated to making your tour as smooth and convenient as possible. They will cater to your interests and are quick to respond to all inquiries and questions. They appear to be committed to highlighting and preserving local Faroese culture without exploiting local communities. We had a great time in the Faroe Islands and are very glad we experienced the islands with this tour group.

Every day was with a different guide. Every day was unique. David adjusted the itinerary to my mobility limitation and the weather. All was good. The day on Suduroy with David was special. We got o observe a sheep shearing. The helicopter return from Mykines was a rare treat. And the "frosting on the cake" was happening onto a folk music concert at the Nordens Hus on the last day.

Our first tour of Mykines with Thomas was absolutely amazing. Transportation (drive from Tórshavn to/from ferry) were all very organized. The hike at Mykines was amazing and Thomas was extremely conscientious of our needs (couple and 5 yo son), other members in our group that needed attention, and perhaps most importantly the natural environment. He taught us a lot about the land, the community, the birds and the animals. Our second trip to Vestmanna was led by David - he did the transport to the various sites. He was easy to talk to and we also learned a lot from him. The boat trip was amazing and that boat captain was funny (repeated in English, Faroese and maybe Danish language) and a brilliant sea captain. He steered the boat into/out of these crazy crevasses and it was dramatic and gorgeous. I was initially skeptical about the cost of these tours but as they were happening we were so happy to be doing them and so grateful for the hard hard work that David and Thomas put in to make them happen. It was definitely worth it.

I am not sure who David is, our local specialist was Tummas. Tummas was very knowledgeable, flexible, and in great physical condition. We had wonderful hikes and on a very foggy day, which occurs often in the Faroes, we had a great road trip to remote picturesque villages driving through spectacular scenery. His personality provided pleasant company. I would highly recommend him.

KimKim, at a higher level of the experience, was difficult to communicate with and sent rather confusing emails at times. The problematic KimKim communications lost 4 people to the Faroe trip.

David and the Heimdal Tours provided a fabulous full-day private tour for us. He was very knowledgeable of the history and explained the various sites that we saw in a clear and comprehensive conversation. We were very relaxed, did not feel rushed, and very satisfied with the amount of territory we covered. It truly was very well worth the cost. We can highly recommend you take advantage of this tour when visiting Faroe Islands.

Our family of four engaged Heimdal Tours to show us Mykines Island. It was an amazing experience! Our guide Tummas was extremely knowledge about the history, flora and fauna, and the people of the Faroe Islands. It was a busy day with more than one ferry to Mykines, but, even with the additional crowds, we felt like the island was ours. We would highly recommend Heimdal Tours.

The van was a beautiful new vehicle, seating 4 comfortably (with room for two more in the rear seat). David is soft spoken so a wireless headset with speakers in the 2nd and 3rd row in his roomy VW van, is highly recommended. David listened to our suggestions - buy a step stool for short/petite guests, always have a trash bag on board and a roll of paper towels or napkins (we ate in his van because it was too cold/windy to eat at a outdoor picnic table). The tour itself was EXCELLENT....the island is so beautiful and seeing the local villages, getting a photo of a man on top of his roof mowing, breathtaking waterfalls, local dogs entertaining us with a game of fetch....priceless. Thanks David for sharing your knowledge and lovely island.

David was great! Very knowledgeable and delivered exactly as promised. The weather did not cooperate but David made it great. We hiked several miles crossing hundreds of small streams and rocks to see a lake but the clouds never lifted. David was funny as well with his 'picture a rock cliff over there...'
