Faroe islands, the Faroe Islands - Jul 3 - Jul 4, 2019

Traveler: Shaianne O. - Local specialist: David Whale

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 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.
