    My friend and I booked this tour and had an amazing time. The guide was a great storyteller and excellent at communicating with all members of the group – it may be because of his degree in literature :).. The packed lunch was so good and a nice tuch.

    The driver was a bit late in picking up in the morning, but other than this everything was fine. The scenery along the hike was awesome. It was foggy on the mountain top when we reached the lighthouse but we managed to take some good photos afterwards. I would still recommend this tour to visitors to Faroe Islands.

    Ursula was a very good guide and she has a very deep knowledge of all things Faroese. This tour has a bit of a strict schedule as you are tied to the ferry to and from the island of Kalsoy.
    The highlight of the day was definitely the hike to the famous Kallur lighthouse with the utterly sweet and helpful Johannus who went out of his way to make sure everyone on the tour had a great time.
