Shimon "The landscapes in Iceland are incredible and differ from other places in the world. A wonderful holiday. Such a tour saves time in encircling Iceland compared with public transportation. If you are limited in time and do not want to hire a car, this is the best option. Nevertheless, the tour is very expensive. In some of the guesthouses, we had only shared bathrooms/ toilets.

    The guide was not with us, but stayed at the van some of the time, including when we took the treacherous climb to go behind the waterfall. We also did not see him after Thursday, when the "10-day" tour was to last til Friday. When we asked him questions... Read more

    The poor rating is for Tour Radar, not for the actual Intrepid Iceland tour. Every request-email to Tour Radar prompted an automatic reply that there was unusually high traffic on their site and it may take days to get a response. Due to their poor... Read more

    • Simonetta7th July 2019
      TourRadar made online booking a pleasure. Responses to questions I had were within less than 24 hours, team was personal but professional. Once I set up my profile I could easily access my booking and see all previous correspondence. TourRadar is better than a local travel agency
