    The Best of Iceland tour with G Adventures was outstanding! Oliver was an excellent guide: knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, kept us on time so that we could see everything and gave us lots of great tips from how to save money to how to set our cameras to capture the northern lights. Iceland is an incredibly beautiful country. I highly recommend this tour!

    Oliver tour guide was fantastic, helped make for a wonderful trip. G Adventures was less than helpful and was not easy to work with. Would not recommend or use again.

    The tour was fantastic! Perfectly scheduled and very professional guide! I think I wouldn't have seen so many places and wouldn't have learned so many things if I had travelled on my own. Many thanks to G Adventures

    The tour met my expectations fully and guide Biggy tried very hard to ensure that this was the case. Would recommend to tourists who do mot like large buses.

    Iceland is beautiful. I took issue with this specific tour as we spent way too much time in the car. The tour should have had more days and/ or less waterfalls. This is a newer tour and it will be likely (or I would hope) modified in the future. There was zero free time built in to the schedule. The guide was local and very sweet but didn't have the heart to tell us we would be in the car for as much as we did.

    Iceland was on my bucket list for many years. I was finally able to tick it off last year. I didn't know much about Iceland and maybe that's why I was so in awe during the trip. I've recommended this G Adventures trip to everyone who has asked me.
