    4.0 - Good

    The tour was very enjoyable, mainly due to the guide, Antoine. He was extremely knowledgable, personable and made every effort to ensure that we were able to have a good experience. He took the weather into account and would change the schedule around for the day to accomodate the best weather for the activity. I felt the tour was comprehensive and in 3 days we were able to appreciate the splendor of Iceland. I did feel that the first accomodation, the Hotel Cabin, standard room had inadequate space for two people. There was no hair dryer in the room, towels were too small for the bath, there were no amenities like shampoo, soap,etc. The window shade was broken and did not get fixed after I complained. The second night we were there we were upgraded due to the hotel being crowed and the room was bigger and had better amenities. For a 20 dollar deposit you can get a hair dryer. Also, it appears that many school groups stay there and the place was overrun with teenagers who were noisy in the halls. The Arthus cottages were very nice. The food in the hotels was expensive and not worth the cost. In general, food and goods are very expensive in Iceland. I would suggest for people arriving early to Iceland as we did, to book the hotel 1 day in advance because you cannot check in until 2 pm and we arrived 6am from the US, were tired and had no place to go.

    We had a spectacular night of Northern lights. My favourite sites were the black sand beach and where the tectonic plates meet.

    Amazing tour - hit all the most beautiful places to see! It was well organised and a lot of fun. The accomodation was basic, but absolutely superb. I would recommend this tour to anyone. The only negative I have was from tourradar whom I booked the tour through. They did not send me my vouchers so I was left without any information about how to get to the hotel from the airport, how to check in, and what time to meet the tour group. Luckily I was able to sweet talk the transfer bus to let me on for free, and check in without my voucher. Not a pleasant first impression of Iceland and for tourradar. If you do book this tour (which I definitely recommend), make sure you have EVERYTHING at least a week before you fly, because the company will somehow manage to make you feel responsible for any mistakes and organisation, rather than looking after you.

    This tour was okay, but time was not properly allocated, and we felt rushed at a lot of the stops, while wasting time at bathroom/eating stops. Also we paid for an upgrade, which I did not think was worth it because they make you walk in the rain to other non upgraded hotel to meet for dinner and to view the northern lights, instead of having the bus come to get you.

    I just returned back from the Northern Lights 5 day tour, it was fantastic! I did the tour by myself and I would highly recommend it. The accommodations weren't 3 or 4 stars but none the less they were clean and served the purpose. You were in the rooms to sleep and shower, your entire day is consumed with the tour. The second and third night of the tour you are in a cabin in the country and I thought it was absolutely beautiful, there are no TVs but you are so tired after the long days and staying up late to catch the northern lights. There is a restaurant and super market walking distance so you can get meals and snacks. One thing I highly highly recommend is bringing along snacks and some water, the tours are long and they only stop for lunch, I was starving by the time we got back for dinner. The bus was awesome and it comes equipped with Wifi and charging ports for your phones or cameras there are no restrooms but all of the stops pretty much have an area to use the restroom. The guide was good, he talked ALOT, had a lot of insight and information. All around it was a great time!

    This tour was even better than I expected. Our guide "Chris" was hilarious in true Icelandic fashion, our tour bus was comfortably spacious/not overly crowded, and the accommodations were decent for the price (Guesthouse Borgartun in Reykjavik was clean and comfortable, and the Arhus cabins in Hella were fantastically cozy albeit lacking in things like a hair dryer and waterproof shower curtains). Although we felt rushed at times because of the strict itinerary we were keeping, we did get to see everything we anticipated on this tour, including some northern lights! Well worth the price, especially as an introductory tour to Iceland. Would highly recommend this for first-time visitors to the country who may be interested in seeing a variety of the usual tourist sights and getting an entertaining and educational history in the process!
