    Very knowledgeable & resposible guide/driver. Tour well organized, but sighting of the lights really is dependent on the weather. Our best sighting was actually on the optional northern lights tour after our trip. Our driver actually assisted in a road emergency in front of us, which is really commendable.

    The trip was everything and more! The driver-guide, AnnaLaura was easy to approach, very knowledgeable and entertaining. Lots to see and do although would have liked more time at a few more places/stops. The budget hotel for the first and last was just that - Budget! Approx inches around 2 singe beds pushed together and a small metal open wardrobe with 4 hangers. Only place for suitase was under the bed! The cabins at Arrhus were adequate and very warm! Food stops and restaurants had fabulous choices cateting to all tastes. Would go back again!

    Had an amazing time. Couldn't ask for more. It was a short trip covering a lot of places but that's how I wanted it to be. The guide Anna was perfect. Very knowledgeable, helpful and organized the trip very well. Something more than expected was that I got actually good vegetarian food at free places. So the food stops were good too.

    I regard this tour was excellent, considering there were only 3 full days doing everything. It was full on. The tour guide, Anna, was very competent, very knowledgeable, informative and helpful. The only regret was the Northern Lights only sort of happened on the 3rd night and it was very quiet according to the forecast. We could make the green colour out from a good camera, otherwise it was looked as cloud.

    The tour was a wonderful way of seeing Iceland. Our tour guide was very informative and helpful the entire time. The accommodations were a bit small but clean. We got to experience the Northern lights one of the nights and it was amazing!

    Transportation was easy to use the Flybus. Accommodation at hotel cabin was small room, TV didn't work and the reception was not warm. Arhus cabin accommodation was much better and scenery was lovely. Our tour guide, Erik, was informative and clearly loved his country! Overall, loved the trip just wished we had more time at each place, not just 45 mins or 1 hour...

    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.
