I would rather have spent an extra day in Reykjavik exploring with a guide.

    4.0 - Good

    It was awesome all the places we saw there, the only inconvenience is that, as this is a separate tour divided between 2+3 days, some of the people I got to know in the first tour were located in a different group for the second tour and that was very sad, I think we should have stayed together, and also in the night 3 (the one in Reikiavik) every person was staying in a different hotel and that was sad as well. But the guides were awesome and they were telling stories about everything all the time and also the accommodation was really nice! specially the hotel for the first day “Hotel Rjukandi” the food there was awesome as well as the people working there!

    First of all our guides “Hawk” for two days and Oliver for three days were excellent. Both speak good and understandable English. Very helpful and mostly knowledgeable. They took us to some interesting points not included in the tour when time permits. Oliver is funny and also dine with us and continue sharing facts, history, and folklore about Iceland. Easily answers your questions. Both guides are satisfactory and polite. Me and my sister are happy tourist and would definitely recommends this tour. BTW our guide also for glacier hikes and the superjeep ice cave tour were excellent and very very funny especially the cave tour. We never stopped laughing. He made the super bumpy tour along the lava fields laughable and enjoyable. Thank you very much. From Jane and Daisy from the USA.

    Everything was just fantastic! Key of which was the great guides we had from Arctic Adventures who provided an excellent tour and even gave us more great scenic quick stops to visit that are not included in the itinerary! Additionally, Oliver was very helpful in getting us awesome photographs of the Northern Lights as our mobile apps were not able to capture them. They made our first impression of travelling to Iceland an unforgettable experience!

    The trip was fantastic but disappointed that we couldn’t do the glacier hike as had to be canceled at last minute due to gale force winds ..

    Two different tours with seperate guides. Both tours were well organised and the guides did everything possible to make the trip great. The accommodation was better than expected. Definently worth the price paid for the tour.

    The trip was beyond expectation. Iceland is a very beautifull country. Our guides were superb as well as the accommodation. The bus was a little bit small. We are tall and didn't have much legspace.

    An amazing tour from start to finish. Both guides were utterly amazing and their driving skills despite difficult and sometimes blizzard conditions (literally a wall of white on the road in front of us) was second-to-none. Also, their quirky and funny stories between each location and historical information was superb. Especially the one story by Aron about him and his friend (very funny but can't mention it here!). We even got to see the Northern Lights twice and Aron came up with Fantastic tips on taking pics with selfies etc. Whilst our first guide had some trouble with luggage which forced him to get a trailer and then get an adapter which wasted valuable time and forced us to miss 1 stop on the tour (we had forewarned the operations team about the luggage we had so we are not sure why they did not plan for this for 18 people in a minivan!), Aron made up for this by giving us quite a few bonus stops on our 3 day tour. Seriously, Arctic Adventure you need to give him a raise for this, he was amazing. Again, the only other issue we had was due to operations again booking us into the Hotel Dyrholaey near Vik. A truly horrible hotel experience and by far the most expensive and ridiculously priced buffet 5000ISK for the worst meal we had in Iceland. There breakfast was worst with my wife vomiting afterwards from it. The hotel was also very old, dilapidated with the shower falling apart and beds were soft and sunken in. The manager/owner was also very, very rude and did not care about the feedback responding "you already paid so there is nothing I can do"! Every other hotel was amazing and especially Hotel Rjukandi.com, who had the cutest family who hosted us for Christmas eve (Iceland celebrates the eve like Xmas day!). They presented us with cute Xmas gifts and were by far much cheaper for food and drink and the hotel rooms immaculate with over head heating in a recently refurbished hotel which looked brand new. Please Arctic Adventures always use this family as they clearly pour their heart and soul into the hotel and value guests. And the location for Northern Lights was amazing too with no mountains or lights to block the views (though it was cloudy at the time). All in all, it was an amazing and unforgettable trip, except for the issues we had on the Hotel Dyrholaey (please never use them again!).

I would rather have spent an extra day in Reykjavik exploring with a guide. The second part of this tour which included the Golden Circle was incredible we saw the Northern Lights, went caving, hiked on a glacier, saw a diamond and a lava beach and our guide Saga was amazing. I would only book the second part of this tour if doing it again. My fault though I should have research the tour more thoroughly.
