Elsa Maria was a very kind Tour Guide for us. We were just two people that day and had an amazing trip. We were involved in the trip and were able to say where we want to stay and how long. I totally enjoyed the trip and would clearly recommend it! We also had some nice hikes in between and she answered every question patiently. The tour was in a comfortable car and the coffee breaks in between were perfect. Thank you!
Elsa Maria was amazing! I can’t believe how much beauty we saw in one day. I am just so in awe of this place and she made the experience even more fulfilling. I’m hoping to come back this summer and would love to book with her again!

We had an amazing trip and I can only recommend it to others. We got to see all the beautiful views and sights, and we had a very unique experience 🙂
I had a very personalized and pleasant tour. Since I happened to be the only one in the tour that day and we happened to have some time over, Elsa Maria drove me to a select few locations not listed on the tour.
The guide is pleasant to talk to, and really knows the locations, she also have me restaurant recommendations.
If you are on the Faroe Islands for a limited amount of time I would highly recommend this trip. Elsa Maria is an authentic, warm-hearted and knowledgeable guide who will make your day, either you travel alone or with company.
She was solution oriented when I made a mistake booking the tour and picked me up at the airport upon arrival. We then spent the rest of the day exploring the magic scenery of the Faroe Islands while she was sharing history and personal experiences.
As the weather conditions where somewhat challenging we ended up doing a more thorough sightseeing of Tórshavn, which was very helpful when I explored the city the next days. Elsa Maria also made sure I had a nice restaurant to have dinner at though all restaurants seemed fully booked due to Valentine’s Day.
I would chose her as my tour guide any day! Highly recommended!
I have traveled around the world and it is one of the best. Especially the guide of Elsa Maria was wonderful. I learned something interesting about the history and culture of Faroe Island and the relationship between people and sheep. I was able to see a wonderful view that I had never seen before. Blessed with the weather, I was able to enjoy Winter Fellows Island. Recommended for all visitors to Faroe Island. This time I come to see Puffins.
Guide was kind, friendly and very knowledgeable about the country. Learnt a lot of interesting facts about the culture, history and geology of the islands during the drives between sites.
In addition to the main attractions of the islands, you also get to see unique locations that you wouldn’t necessarily know about when travelling alone.
I strongly recommend this tour for people who are staying for a week or less as it gives you a good picture of the whole country.
Maria did give me the “See it all” tour! Not only did she drove me around the island, giving me valuable information about the country and showing me the best spots to take pictures, but she also gave me a real lesson on the Faroe culture! History, culture, traditions, tales, language and even some faroese food! All that in a single day! I definitely recommend this tour!
The tour was awesome. Our guide Elsa Maria did a great job, all was very well organized and prepared. Telling us personal stories and other interesting things it was remarkable how much Elsa Maria loves the Faeroe Islands. The tour is the best choice to see in short time as much of spectacular spots as possible. An great advantage is that the tour includes the highlights of Vagar Island too. For me the tour also was a perfect appetizer for going around the Faeroer by my own.
Truly the best way to see the Faroes if you are there for the first time. Elsa Maria seems to know everybody and has a personal connection to all the places we´ve visited. We´ve even been invited to houses. Also she can tell you a lot of background information about the islands and their people. Plus you get all the stunning scenery. Given the fact that a hired car will set you back around 1.000 DKK a day this trip is really good value – you add the guide for the rest.

This was a wonderful tour, not only because of the beautiful sites seen along the way – particularly Gjóv and Bøur -but also because of the very cheerful and friendly guide Elsa Maria. I really enjoyed learning more about the history and culture of the Faroe Islands from her, especially as an Icelander since we consider each other “cousins” due to our shared history and very similar languages. I was only in country for 3 days but I definitely felt like I got my money’s worth on this tour and saw nearly everything I wanted to see. If you’re looking for a fun, energetic guide and only have a limited amount of time on the Faroe Islands, I highly recommend this tour!

We had a fantastic day on this “See it all” Faroe Islands Tour. We experienced breathtaking nature, tasted exciting local food and had the most amazing tour guide, Elsa Maria. We can absolutely recommend this day tour!
Elsa Maria is a great guide (and a great driver), who clearly knows a lot about these fascinating islands. She kept the group going, so that we could really ‘see it all’, but also gave us time to savour each place, including to take photos. The packed lunch with traditional Faroese food was a particularly nice touch. Takk fyri! 🙂
A fantastic tour around the islands – and a great guide, who told a lot of stories about the country, it’s history and the people.
Great day, great guide – worth all that driving around
Very knowledgeable guide, many beautiful sights.

Cannot recommend enough! Lovely guide who was full of information and answered all our questions. An excellent introduction to the islands, its history and people. Brilliant way to start our holiday on the islands and also recommended other places to visit and walks to do. 5*
Jeg havde en super god dag og fik set en masse smukke spændende steder på Færøerne. Guide Elsa-Maria var behageligt gæstfrit selskab og kunne fortælle meget om det vi så, og kunne supplere med anekdoter fra hendes egen opvækst på øerne. Hun tog endda billeder og sendte dem via en app sammen med et kort over hvor vi havde været. Kaffe og stort udvalg af kiks/kager. Turen kan bestemt varmt anbefales- jeg tror det er meget svært at få lige så stort udbytte ved at tage rundt på egen hånd.
We have all but Good words for our Faroe Islands day tour!, It wouldn’t have been possible for us to experience first hand the beauty of some of the most scenic destinations of the Faroe Islands if it hadn’t been because of our amazing tour guide Ms. Elsa Maria. We really enjoyed every minute we had with her. Thanks to her for agreeing to have our tour a day earlier than what was previously booked. Elsa Maria made sure we visited the most scenic parts of the Faroe Islands in a span of just 8 hours!, In those 8 amazing hours while driving and hiking, she told us about Faroe Islands´history, culture, religion, food, etc. We really are so amazed and dazed as well in visiting the top scenic spots of the Faroe Islands. We highly recommend this tour for group of friends and family to experience especially if you have a limited time in the Faroe Islands just like us.
Dear Guide Mrs. Baerentsen,
thanks for a lovely day at Faroer!
You made this day and my dreams possible even the weather preview gave no guarantee for a sunny day..
A very special experience with a very special guide ! She was perfect and showed me the most enjoyable beer an snacks, coffee and Faroer specialities!
We have seen so many villages near the road, we managed to take photos and were looking for waterfalls!
Thanks Mrs. Baerentsen for the great job!
We were a group of Swedes and one Norwegian deciding to go on a hike and ending the day with a boat trip with Guide to Faroe Islands, as we were having a work-visit on the Faroe Islands September 15th, 2019. As most Nordic people have been out hiking before, we met properly dressed, warm clothes, light backpacks with that little extra one tends to need on a trip, a sweater, chocolate, water, nuts, tissue paper and a camera. Everything came in handy, not to mention the camera. A lovely guide took us along paths with views – making sure we all made regular pauses to catch or breath from walking – or just to be able to take in the unique scenery. We were also served delicious lunch-packs on route and a small taste of local liquor. As the weather became increasingly more windy, the boat-trip was cancelled, but our innovative guide put us all in her van and brought us on a memorable car trip, passing scenery, villages, beaches, small- industrial projects and cultural centre points, houses, – all accompanied by a colourful and personal story from the guide. As we all joined in singalong the last mile back, it was an expression of rare well-being and joy. A breathtaking trip, the scenery-the atmosphere- the stories- and the guide!
Although we were unable to complete our trip in March due to covid 19, the company was wonderful in rescheduling our trip to later in the year.
Excellent tour, great guide, warm coffee and chocolate, really knows the islands
Can warmly recommend this to everyone
