    Written on February 6, 2017
    4.5 - Excellent

    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!

    Dear Ashley, Thank you for your feedback and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Iceland. We are glad you enjoyed the cabins and the insight into Iceland that the guide provided. It's great to hear that the WIFI and charging points provided on the coach proved to be particularly useful. Thank you again for taking the time to write.

    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!
