    4.5 - Excellent

    The tour was well designed - we saw a variety of places and enjoyed a wide range of activities. The van was a convenient means of transportation, but the seats in the back row were cramped, with less leg room than between the other rows, and on the long drives it became very uncomfortable. The accommodation was excellent in most places, with clean and airy rooms. Exception: the large guesthouse in Siglufjordur, where the standard of cleanliness was lower, and the faucet in our room sink was stiff and very hard to use. The food was fresh, healthy, and tasty in all places. Stefan was knowledgeable, helpful in all situations, responsive to our needs, and personable. He also announced and implemented seat rotation.

    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. Our guide, Christian was nice and assisted us when my mother dislocated her arm. He helped us in obtaining ground floor accommodation. We would only recommend adding Landmannalaugar Park to the tour. It is the most colorful park in Iceland.

    The tour was amazing! Our tour guide Magnus gave a lot of local insight to Iceland and always made the effort to talk to all of us. Although most of the accommodation was nice and cosy but there were some stays which appeared like they were not cleaned before our arrival such as dirty sinks and dusty floors and cupboards.

    Loved the Island. Fabulous scenery / geology. Great international group. Bit rough and ready in parts and lots of driving but go with the flow and you will enjoy. Let down by accommodation mix ups, expensive meals and inadequate guide.

    Absolutely fantastic trip not only because of the carefully planned itinerary but also the lovely guide from FunTravel Iceland. This 10day long tour covered all the sights I wanted to see in Iceland in the summer and Jura the lovely guide even added some extras (mostly waterfalls). Her local expertise meant that she not only tried to take us off the beaten track and show sights less frequented by tourists (hence less crowds) but also varied them to accommodate for the weather and road conditions and doing this whilst being on the go all the time. There is nothing I could fault with this trip – all items on the itinerary were as described (except for 1 accommodation on Vik but that was outside of the tour organizer’s control). The group age was between 19-55, mainly Australians with a couple of Europeans tagging along making it a lovely mix of people to chat to and experience this amazing country with. One thing is for sure – I will have to come back for a winter trip :) Thanks Jura for being a great guide, thanks Interpid and FunTours for organizing and conducting the trip.
