Most amazing trip ever! · the Faroe Islands - Aug 19 - Aug 24, 2021
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!!
Tummus and the Faroe Islands - a fantastic guide and incredible nature · the Faroe Islands - Jul 3 - Jul 11, 2021
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.

Top notch outfit. Tummas was my guide and was able to modify the tour based upon my activity level. Extremely knowledgeable about Faroese culture and history. Would not hesitate for a second to use them again.
Northern lights · the Faroe Islands - Sep 30 - Oct 4, 2019
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.
7-12 days in the Faroe Islands · the Faroe Islands - Sep 12 - Sep 21, 2019
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.
Photography Adventure · the Faroe Islands - Aug 13 - Aug 19, 2019
Everything about our trip was simply incredible, we enjoyed every moment of it and the breathtaking scenery of the Faroe Islands will stay in our memory for a long time. Overall we were 5 days in the Faroe Islands and I think it was the perfect amount of days we needed to see all the great things there.
David, Tummas and Barđur were amazing guides! Every day was a new adventure and they told us so many interesting things about the places we were visiting.

Our trip was perfect because of David and his company.
Faroe extension · the Faroe Islands - Jul 1 - Jul 8, 2019
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.
Faroe Islands · the Faroe Islands - Jul 3 - Jul 4, 2019
All of my communications with David were through the KimKim portal and that was quite smooth - especially in the initial inquiry and reservation of the tours. 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... read more

Walking the Faroes · the Faroe Islands - May 16 - May 21, 2019
Tummas was a wonderful, patient and knowledgeable guide. Excellent!
Perfect Hiking Trip · the Faroe Islands - May 16 - May 21, 2019
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.
Trip to the Faroe Islands · the Faroe Islands - Aug 18 - Aug 18, 2018
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.
Trip to the Faroe Islands and Iceland · the Faroe Islands - Aug 3 - Aug 8, 2018
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.
Falls in Torshavn · the Faroe Islands - Jul 11 - Jul 11, 2018
David was an excellent guide, however; for the cost of this tour, there was ample time to stop for lunch at a local restaurant for a complimentary hot meal, in lieu of a sandwich from a convenient store with one bottle of water for the day. 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... read more
Runavik to Lake Sorvagsvatn and return · the Faroe Islands - Jun 24 - Jun 24, 2018
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...'
