We just want to thank you for the amazing tour of the Faroes. Jogvan Thomsen was an outstanding guide and we learned so much about the islands, its people, history and culture! It was a true highlight and we are incredibly grateful.

Thank you Greengate Incoming. While we have been married for 35 years my husband and I have never been out of the country together (separately yes), somehow getting away together never happened as we had sheep to look after at home . Retirement has meant that at last we had an opportunity to go away together and our first choice was the Faroes. We were delighted with everything. We didn't expect luxury. Our room was not large , but adequate and clean. The food everywhere was the highest standard. The people were not profuse in their welcome , they were polite, and when I had a fall they were sympathetic but did not fuss ( a fact I much appreciated ) I can only commend the excellent driver we had on Sunday who drove us for 5 hours. We appreciated his knowledge and understanding of the world outside the Faroes and could well relate to his returning there after working in Ireland and Denmark. In our short stay we saw something of the community that used to exist in Scotland and we mourn its passing. We both hope that the Faroese are able to benefit from tourism without selling their souls to the devil. If you get it right , and in our eyes you have , it is an experience I would recommend . As a postscript I'd like to say that I searched deliberately for some pure Faroese wool as I wanted the true undyed subtle "moorit" colours which when knitted up in the Faroese style look so bright.

Faroe islands are a paradise I have never visited such a place
Had a wonderful stay, and the weather behaved beautifully!
Did already send Your name to a collegue in Berg-Hansen
It was our second visit to the islands (the first one 5 years ago) and we contracted again Greengate because the service is excellent. Runa has resolved all our questions and doubts
It eas a good idea to have a package holiday at this first time at the faraoe islands. I øeatnrf s lot about the culture and history as we were only a small group in the mini bus. The guides were excellent!
We had a great experience in the Faroe Islands thanks to Greengate and to Tora tourist traffic. I would like to thank you and especially thank Ms Rúna for her attentive service. She was always there to answer any question and she was extremely kind.
We loved everything about the Faroes. Amazing scenery. Great food. Very friendly and helpful locals. Just some more direction signage in the bigger towns. Hope to visit again.

Hello Rúna at greengate. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU .... We had a wonderful trip to the Faroe Islands .... They are magical islands!!!! Weather was wonderful. All hotels were great. Route and the "added tours" were perfect. Even tasted whale meat and whale blubber. Managed to get reservations at Koks ... Incredible dining experience.
Thank you Greengate for all your help. "Fin" was at the port a few minutes after 9. We were so impressed that you knew we were arriving early. We had a lovely day driving all over and greatly appreciated his knowledge about the island. He even found us Faroe Island ponies to photograph and escorted us around town at the end of the tour. Your company and you did a great job. All three of us, Carol Moon, me, and Thelma Sanborn were very pleased.I am not good with the computer, but feel free to use this note in any future comments about your company.
Loved our day in Torshavn.
Jayne, Martin, Chris and Julie
Just wanted to say thank you for arranging our day in the Faroes. Despite a late start due to fog in the harbour we had a fantastic time. What a beautiful place you live in, so peaceful and quiet. Far away from the madness of here!!
Please pass on our thanks to our lovely driver guide Dagfinnor Berg. He was very informative and we enjoyed his company. His driving was good and he really knew where to go and beat the coaches! Also please thank again our dinner hosts at Gardahusid. Wonderful meal for Julie's birthday and a pleasant house and gardens. I would really love the recipe for the fish soup.....it was fantastic!!
We will be back...more than one day next time
Greengate Incoming. A quick email to say thanks for the support you've provided us. We're back from this 4 days trip and it's been an amazing journey where we could see a lot of great places and capture that on film. The house in Gjogv was really cosy and the location is just amazing.
We'll start soon working on the final documentary which I hope we can release at some point this autumn.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures of what we could film:
All the best,

Hi Rúna at greengate,
I wanted to write to tell you how wonderful our trip to the Faroe Islands was for me. I loved every minute of it. I was challenged in so many ways with the steep cliffs and on the edge walks and drives as I am terrified of heights. I think I am not so afraid any more.
The beauty of the islands and the friendliness of the people we met was fantastic and overwhelming. Each of the hosts was warm and helpful, they were all different but all wonderful to us.
There were so many highlights of the trip I can not single out a favorite, I loved it all. I have wonderful memories and lots of beautiful pictures.
Again thank you for all your help in planning our trip.

Just wanted to say thank you for all your help arranging our trip. We did not see totality but had a wonderful experience and a lovely time on the Faroe Islands. Everyone so friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was great. Thanks to you and our hosts at the bed and breakfast. Thanks again. You guys were brilliant

Hi Hilda! at Greengate.
I just want to take this time to thank you for everything. I truly had a once in a lifetime experience in the Faroes and I'm so glad that you were able to find a spot for me set in Sandavagur last minute. I was lucky enough to see the whole solar eclipse from start to finish there. I found a great spot to see it and it was amazing. Words can not describe how amazing it was to see. You are a great person and a great guide. I can't imagine how much pressure was put onto you during the whole week but you did an outstanding job. Thank you so much for helping me out as well when I needed to get to places on time and any information I needed. I can't wait to come back!
Dear Hilda, Total Solar Eclipse 20 March 2015
I know you are probably still running around like a loon, but I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help in organising the viewing area today. I had a call from Andy and he said it really was the best spot. And even though the cloud cover was heavy, it was a truly special occasion.
You can soon put your feet up for a well deserved rest!
Dear GreenGate, Fridun
we would like to thank you so much for your perfect arrangement of our fantastic holiday in your wonderful islands.
We really enjoyed it: first of all we were very lucky about the weather (as everyone we met told us !!!), we experienced special events as the official visit of a queen (the first one we have ever seen in our life!!!), but in
particular your advice were really usefull to deeply enjoy the breathtaking views and the amazing sights on your islands.
Just a little complain: please try to better indicate the way signs on the most walked paths on the mountains. Maybe metal coloured signs will probably help hiking people not to get lost on the way!!!
Anyway thanks again for your collaboration.
Dear greengate incoming.
Just a quick note to say that we have just arrived home after a glorious stay in your islands thanks to your organisation of our trip.
We loved the Faroes and we're extremely pleased with the arrangements you had made and whilst I understand we were lucky with the weather, we felt that your country delivered far more than the even the adverts proclaimed.
Our thanks again.
Dear Ásbjørg (& Alexandra from Nordic Visitor!),
We have (regretfully) completed our wonderful trip around the Faroe Islands. The time passed much too quickly - and we are so sorry to be leaving already!!
We want to thank everyone at Green Gate & Nordic Visitor for the fantastic organisation & help & guidance we received on our trip! We were thrilled with everything and everyone we encountered and would love to make plans to return in the future and see even more of the Faroes ( AND Iceland!)
All the best & thanks very much,
Dear Asbjørg at greengate.
We are back from our wonderful trip to your country.Everything was great.
The most important person was Samal with his tours, he made our stay really perfect.
He was such a good guide, with his knowledge, his stories and his
enthusiasm he made every day an adventure.
And thanks to you for the excellent organisation of the trip, we really hope to come back one year.
Now that we are back in Australia I wanted to write and thank you and GreenGate Incoming for organising our trip to the Faroe Islands.
When you live so far away it is hard to understand what is easy and not so easy to do, how best to spend your time and what to see. Your suggested itinerary, things to see and do and places to visit was invaluable. Your organisation was faultless and made our time in your beautiful country easy and trouble free. We would certainly recommend your company for any visitor who wants to see and experience what the Faroe's have to offer.
Once again thank you for your professionalism and the efficiency with which your organised our visit.
Just wanted to tell you that I enjoyed my trip to Faroe Islands last week. Everything went smoothly and buses and excursions were operated as scheduled under the beautiful sunny sky throughout the stay. (Which should mean I was very fortunate.)
Before the trip I was a bit worrying about the short time interval between bus arrival time to the destination and boat departure time from there, but there was no problem after all.
Faroe Islands are Europe’s secret beautiful treasure, I sincerely hope it will remain as it is for many years. It was definitely one of most impressive trips in my life. :)
We have finished our trip in the Faroe Islands and come back to Hong Kong.
Thanks to your kind arrangement, we had a wonderful trip and enjoyed very much what we have experienced there - Beautiful scenery, amazing landscape, lovely sheeps and birds, extremely fresh grass and air, and friendly people.
Everything was very smooth - until the last day when we encoutered a serious flight delay of 12 hours to Copenhagen due to heavy fog. Other than that, the trip was near perfect.
We love the house in Frodba very much - it is such a beautiful house with superb view that we would dream to have one like this in Hong Kong : )
We also love the home visit with Lena & Jakup - their house and garden are so wonderful and their kind hospitality made us feel like home. Thanks for your good suggestion!
Our trip in the Faroe Islands will always remain a cherishable memory for us.
Thanks again for your good service that made our trip so enjoyable.
Dear GreenGate Team, Just returned back to the UK after booking a package through you Guys(&Gals). Absolutely amazing place, best holiday ever. Everything worked like clockwork.Flights,accommodation,car hire & excursions. Thank you so much for sorting everything from booking to return flight.We can't speak highly enough of GreenGate. Thanks again
Holly and I just wanted to thank you again for putting together our travel arrangements this summer. We had a wonderful time on our trip to the Faroe Islands and that was due to your wise selection of destinations and activities--it was great. Very sincerely, thank you!
We will recommend your services to anyone we know who is booking in the Faroes! Thank you once again and if we should find ourselves returning to the Faroe Islands in the future, we will get in touch to have you book our next trip.
We had a wonderful trip. Everything was arranged to our satisfaction and we really enjoyed it. The weather was really perfect (just a few sprinkles of rain in Reykjavik).
On Greenland we did a lot of hiking. Sailing among the ice-bergs was great and the old viking settlements were very interesting.
Iceland was also great with riding and whale-watching. We saw the last Puffin-birds before they left for the season and three different types of whales. It was also great to swim in the hot springs at the Blue Lagoon.
However, The Faroe Islands was the crown of the tour. Very interesting guiding of the city and old settlements. And we also got the opportunity to do some quick fishing when we were out with Nordlysid (studying the fog) and I caught a Ling (Longa) that we were able to cook for lunch aboard the boat in the harbor. We really liked The Faeroe Islands and plan to come back. The nature there really appealed to both of us.
Thanks again for arranging everything so well and giving us an excellent honeymoon trip (thanks for the suite in Narsasuaq).
"While visiting the islands, I had a great time enjoying a warm hospitality of feroe islanders.
In the future I would like to come back once again to explore more remote islands. Mange Tak!"
Have a nice afternoon!
I want to thank you for your arrangements for me.
It was a wonderful time for me at the Faroes.
I saw so fantastic Nature at Vestmanna, Somnifjell, Eysturoy and Mykines and I met very friendly and caring people.
Hi Irena at greengate.
We’re back in Belgium which means that our holiday is over :o)
It was a lovely holiday ! The house had a briljant view (amazing to see the storm blow by and the change of the colours in the clouds and sea) and the trips you organized for us were great ! For Wannes especially the kayak – he did a greenroll for the first time in his life !
If you ever need a recommendation for a client in Belgium, just ask !

Hi greengate incoming.
Just want to let you know we returned to Los Angeles today and we immensely enjoyed our time in the Faroe Islands.
Everything you arranged for us went off without a hitch! The transport, the hotels and the tours were wonderful!
Thank you for making the arrangements for a memorable vacation!
Yesterday evening we arrived safely back home in Switzerland, full of new and beautiful impressions of your country. We want to say thank you very much for your perfect organization. Everything just went easy as planned.
I want to thank you so much for making our trip such a wonderful experience. We also appreciated your rebooking of our flight. Everything you arranged went very smoothly.
The highlight for me was the trip to Mykines. I am so glad you recommended that day. The view of the light house was wonderful. It was a great experience sitting amongst the puffins. The village was lovely with all its colourful houses. I am sorry we never had a chance to meet.
Thank you again. The Faroes are a wonderful place. I highly recommend a visit.
Just a quick note to thank you again for your assistance in booking accommodation for us for our visit to The Faroes. We had a great visit last week and managed to explore a fair bit of the country; a boat trip from Vestemanna, visits to the northern isles, some good food, some sport fishing, birdwatching, an evening watching Faroes Under 21s play Serbia U21s at the football stadium, some hiking, etc. A fantastic holiday and a beautiful part of the world, which we'll hopefully visit again in the near future.
It is a pity that there are no longer any direct plane or boat links beiween Scotland and The Faroes, which would make it easier to visit.
Thank you again and have a great summer.
A Big Thank You for arranging our trip to your islands in August.
We had a fantastic stay and all the arrangements worked like clockwork. Your tour guides certainly lived up to all expectations by helping us to "step inside your unique world by making the invisible visible". In the course of a full and varied programme we met so many lovely people and learned much about the history and culture of your islands.
The Hotel Hafnia was excellent - the food was outstanding and it was great to sample distinctive Faroese cuisine.
We are delighted that we chose GreenGate Incoming to arrange our trip and will have no hestitation in recommending you to friends and colleagues. Indeed, it is possible that we will visit the Faroes again in the next year or so in connection with some research we are undertaking.
Irena at Green Gate Incoming.
Anne and I have now been home from our very memorable visit to the Faroe Islands.
I would like to thank you for your help to bring our arrangements together.
One very special memory of our visit is the evening visit to the home of Jorleif and Tora Kurberg.
Could you please pass on to Jorleif our great appreciation for his hospitality and to Tora for the wonderful meal she prepared. It was also a great pleasure to meet Tora’s mother.
The visit allowed us to gain a brief insight into aspect of life in the Faroes and to enjoy asome wide ranging conversation with Jorleif and Tora. I have attached a photo of Anne and Jorleif from our trip up to Sornfelli.
Could you please pass on my thanks to Jorleif and Tora for this very special evening.
Deborah and I would like to thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. The meal last night at the Hotel Hafnia was superb and gave us a chance to try some distinctive Faroese cuisine. Most of which we loved!
Today we have driven to Esturoy across the 'bridge over the atlantic' . That was exciting but the scenery was so breath-taking and the villages (especially Gjogv) were beatiful and charming. And that also sums up our impressions of your wonderful country - beautiful, windswept and totally charming.
Thanks for all your help so far and I am sure that our friends in Australia will be keen to hear about how we found one of the most remote spots on earth - from an Australian perspective.
Dear Madam at greengate.fo
we had a very pleasant stay in the Faroe Islands at the beginning of July .
we did appreciate very much the spectacular landscapes, wonderful peace, beautiful northern lights, and the kindness of the inhabitants of your country.
thank you for your help in organizing our family trip
we are keeping beautiful memories, and some pictures !!!
My wife and I visited the Faroe Islands for one week last month. Our tour arrangements were made by GreenGate Incoming working with my travel agent Borton Overseas.
There were some missing vouchers in my package, and I called your office for assistance. I spoke with Runa, and thank your offices for an enjoyable visit to the lovely Faroe Islands. My wife and I completely enjoyed our time in the Faroe Islands and we thank you, and especially Runa, for making it all work out so well.
I would like to say how very enjoyable we found our visit.
The excursions - Nolsoy, trip to north of island, Vestmanna bird cliffs and to Sandoy - were all extremely good and Samal was very informative.
Interesting bird life and flowers plus the history and way of life of the people.
The staff at hotel Hafnia were always extremely helpful. Interestly, one of them comes from Birmingham!
We were fortunate with the weather also.
My thanks to you and your colleagues for the organisation.
We had a great time in the Faroe Islands. Weather was perfect except for 1 day.
Thanks again for your help with all the plans & vouchers. Worked out great.
Can't wait to go back there again!!
All the best
Thank you very much for the travel package that you put together for myself and my sister for last week. We had a very enjoyable time. Everything went like clockwork. All the tour guides were on time and we had no
problems finding them. They were all very knowledgeable. Thank you for
booking us on the Vestmanna boat trip. I was a little concerned about using the public bus and changing buses en route, but as soon as we got off the first bus, then next one was there within one minute. Your bus service is excellent and easy to use. Very nice and comfortable and clean buses.
You have a very beautiful country. I will be telling people about it.
Hope you're well.
I thought you might want to see this feedback from our mutual client. He enjoyed his holiday very much so a big thank you for organising everything!
Look forward sending more clients to your way!
Thank you so much for the work you did getting all our itinery sorted out, without your hard work we would never have been able to do what we did. Everything went very smoothly and on time, We had a wonderful time in the Faroe's it was mind blowing, the food, the scenery and the people were fabulous. I can't praise enough what you and your company provide.
"Wanted to thank you for serving us. We had a great honeymoon in the Faroe Islands. It did not rain much even though the weather can be unpredictable.
The nature was beautiful and we fell in love with the sheep :)"
