    Ditte did a terrific job!

    Great tour with a great guide! Ditte knows her way around the Faroes and also the tricks the weather can play on tourists. Our tour to Traelanipa and Gasadalur was great, even though at times we had really bad weather. She was always kind and helpful and it was a pleasure having her as my guide.
    As for Guide to Faroe Island, I cannot thank enough! I bought the tour 2 days before and the contact with them was always fast, be it thru the site (very well organized), be it thru the social media.
    All in all, I super recommend Guide to Faroe Islands!

    This is an essential tour when visiting the Faroes. Ditte knows everything about the islands and will help you get the best shots for your memories! My favorite tour on my trip!! Can’t wait to go back

    One of the highlights of my Europe solo trip was visiting the Faroe Islands. I was very keen on doing a guided tour and found this tour to be very interesting. On the day of the tour I found that I was the only person that had signed up and thought that this would be cancelled, but it wasn’t. Ditte, the guide, picked me up at my hostel in Vagar. We started out in the afternoon and the weather was not the most pleasant. It was drizzling and super cloudy. But as we started hiking towards Trælanípan, it completely cleared and we had the perfect weather – clear blue skies, sun and great natural lighting! One of the added benefits for me was to get my photo clicked from a pro photographer which rarely happens for a solo traveller! haha. I got to see some of the most stunning locations in Faroe Islands, thanks to Ditte. She is an amazing person and I am very glad to have made a friend. I highly recommend this tour with Ditte 🙂

    I was so impressed with my guide’s knowledge and experience of the area. She was attentive and made sure she was aware of my skill level so she could appropriately tailor the experience. It was also easy to contact her the day before the tour when the weather looked like it might change quickly. The weather was windy and rainy but this didn’t take away from the tour at all! In fact it only added to the experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone!

    We got the chance to enjoy very beautiful sights around Vágar. We had the nicest guide, Ditte. She’s a photographer and showed us really great places such as Sørvágsvatn and the waterfall in Gasadalur. She told us interesting facts and myths about the area. We ended up having a perfect day in the exceptional nature, with a little bit of thanks to unusually nice weather and a big thank you to our guide Ditte.

    I came all the way from Brazil to visit the North for a few weeks – I had 12 days in Iceland, 4 days in Greenland, and only 1 day in the Faroe Islands, in which I chose to take the Photography Tour with Ditte, and I can say very happily – this was the BEST day of my entire trip! We had perfectly sunny weather, visited the most beautiful places I have ever seen and I had a perfect day overall. Ditte was a blessing – she took me to the best places, where most tourists ignore, showed me the best angles for the pictures, told me so many interesting facts about the Faroe Islands culture and history, and even took amazing pictures of me using her own camera! We had really great conversations during the hikes, she is an amazing person, and I’m really happy I got to meet her. In Gasádalur, we even visited a local house, played with dogs and chickens, and she stopped in many places on the way for me to get great pictures. But Ditte also made sure that I got enough time to just enjoy the moment and the scenery, without cameras to distract me – those are some of my precious memories of the trip! Oh and I definitely should add that she was absolutely concerned with my safety above everything, always pointing out which places she felt weren’t very safe to stand or sit down – something that, as a tourist, I couldn’t know, so I value it a lot. Takk fyrir for a perfect day! And I really recommend this tour to everyone, even if you have just one day in the Islands (you should really stay longer, though!)

    It was great to meet Ditte. She is very nice and knowledgeable. She told us many interesting stories about faroe islands. And we had a good day ! Definitely will find her again next time! Highly recommended.

    Ditte was a good guide.

  10. Casey Schmidt

    Ditte was THE BEST! I mean, the Faroese people repeatedly proved themselves to be some of the kindest, most friendly and welcoming people I have ever come across. But Ditte and I just clicked right away and had a great day walking and talking and taking beautiful photos. The weather could not have cooperated more, but it really was with Ditte’s help and guidance that I captured some fantastic photos to bring back home. Everyone should book with her!

  11. S Blake Wade

    Ditte was amazing. The day was wet and very windy, but she competently led us to see what we had requested and guided us to assure we were safe. With her expertise, we were able to experience Vagar Island’s hidden and special spots.
