About Us

We’re couple of guys trying to solve a problem we ran into in the guiding industry in Iceland.

Haukur’s father runs a company that hires guides every day and was having difficulties finding the right guide for their tours and to find out if they are available when the tour operator needs them.

We decided that we could create a calendar where guides could post their schedule and other information so available guides could be found and booked with just a few clicks.

The modern way to communicate with guides is finally here!

Mobile Ready

We know guides spent most of their time on the road, so we’ve created a system that works on mobile devices.

At the moment the website is very mobile-friendly, but we are also working on a app that runs on most mobile platforms out there.

We’ve also implemented an SMS sending solution to notify users that don’t have smartphones, so that they can accept or decline offers from tourist companies within minutes.
