Aussies meet Polly and Valur
Had a fantastic time experiencing a very informative walk with Valur and Polly. We had just flown in from Australia after having followed the RG for years. There was so much to hear and Valur made the time go very quickly, and the stories were very interesting. Could not believe it when I actually met Polly in the ‘fur’. She is such a smart and beautiful girl. RG are definitely fortunate to have her on the payroll. She never ceases to boost morale, and she definitely boosted ours. Thank you to the RG for making our dreams come true. Wendy and Rod from Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.
Expective FIVE Stars!!
Well, we haven't used our purchase yet, but we are VERY much looking forward to meeting Valur and Polly on our walking tour of Reykjavik. We are familiar with their work and are expecting to share a really fun couple of hours with you both. See you in July!
Entertaining, informative and frisbee throwing
We really enjoyed the walk and talk. Valur and Bjartmar are a great double-act. Also we had great fun throwing the frisbee for Pollý. (It was also great to bump into Josie in Reykjavík Art Museum Hafnarhús the next day :-)
