    Great tour! This is an amazing place to see Puffins...in the water, flying, on the ground, and on your shoulder. Great tour from a local with many great stories about life on the island.

    We cannot say enough good things about our tour and tour guide Ebbi. We saw puffins, we saw the entire island and we got to learn about it from someone who has lived there his whole life. I would recommend this to everyone!!

    We are not tour people and were planning to walk the island, but we are so glad we didn’t. We were greeted by Ebbi and a baby puffin, explored the island throughout and ended with a tour of the sea life museum. It was a perfect start to our day in the Westman Islands!
