About me:

I'm a visual artist, traveling back and forth, asking where the real 'home' is and so - discovering little secrets about each place.
I've been guiding my couchsurfers in Reykjavik, Vilnius, With these free tours I have been spending so much of my time, that I forgot to pay my rent..So now trying something new!
I am developing tour of choices which can be mixed together especially with a stop at a restaurant serving veg or vegan food, shopping shortly at a local old store or having the famous old-style ice-cream.

#1 Icelandic ART scene:
-Street art and underground art scene

#2 Suburbs with elf stories and how the areas changed.

#3 Veg or Vegan tour
-Top places to try veg versions of local dishes
-History of Icelandic dishes and holidays

#4 With YOUR car:

-Gardur (50km) - The windiest city: stone art garden, lighthouses, elf lady's house Read more

Great tour! Wish we booked a longer tour.
We booked Gudrita on a 1 day layover in Icealand for a 3 hour tour considering Reykjavik is a tiny area but wished we booked a longer time with her. We arrived in the afternoon, so places that she recommended were closed already. Since we met her shortly after checking into our hotel I needed a coffee badly and Gudrita knew of a great coffee place a couple blocks from our hotel. During the tour we learned about Iceland's history, saw some cool public art including the Einar Jónsson sculptures, learned about Sigur Rós, Of Monsters and Men, and the street art scene. Gudrita gave us her personal insight on the ever changing Reykjavik.
Friendly & Informative!
A very friendly person who thorough knowledge of the city and its history and culture. It was great to go around the city with her and hear the different stories behind monuments, art expositions and more. An overall good time :)
