Review of Den bästa 7-dagars norrskensrundturen med egen bil på Island| Besök en unik isgrotta

The tour is super well organized, lots of information is provided for you to take the most advantage of it, the hotels were great, they all offered amazing breakfast, also all of them had a restaurant and most of them offered great food. A 4x4 is a most and specially during winter. Our agent was super helpful and patient. Because of bad weather all of our tours were cancelled and Guide to Iceland refunded us with no problem and helped us booked new tours when the weather permitted. I feel the itinerary is a bit ambitious specially in winter when driving times are longer due to weather, the roads are with ice and the daylight is shorter, so my advice is be prepared with the list of things you really want to see so you can prioritize them, the last day is a lot of driving because you are coming back from Hofn to Reykjavik, so be prepared for that. Something that helped us a lot to get familiarized with the itinerary was to create Google Maps using MyMaps for each day so we can get the route and the exact coordinates of the places we were going to visit even though at the end we could not see them all. Try to familiarize yourself with the websites that give you information about the roads and the weather, they will become your main tool when driving in Iceland because the weather can change rapidly (,,, we were caught in a Wind Storm in the South and South East area and the wind and wind gust were incredible strong, some roads were closed some times and driving through that was a bit stressful, so just be ready in case it happens. Iceland is amazing beautiful country, the trip is totally worth it so I totally recommend it and booking through Guide to Iceland will make your life easier.

Review of En sommarvecka du sent ska glömma | Rundtur där du kör själv | Ringvägen och Gyllene cirkeln

I did the 8 day self drive tour solo in October with the budget 2wd option. As I had an extra day either side Guide to Iceland organised for me to have the same rental car for the two extra days with the pick up and drop off from the airport. They also offered to arrange the extra nights accommodation aswell but I had already arranged my own. Everything was amazing, all of the accommodation was great. Make sure you pop into the office in Reykjavik when you arrive to grab your welcome pack and to ask any last bits of advice like places to stop and eat driving between destinations. The staff there were super lovely and even printed a few suggested routes for different days off for me. I only did the one activity tour, the amphibious glacier boat tour and it was a definite highlight of the trip! Another highlight was the Mývatn Nature Baths (much nicer than the Blue Lagoon) which I definitely recommend putting aside at least two hours for when in the area. The only thing I would suggest doing a bit different is splitting the golden circle and the drive from Reykjavik to Vík into two separate days as with the limited amount of daylight (in early Oct) there simply wasn't enough time to fit everything in and it was already getting dark by the time I reached Seljalandsfoss. Which was another highlight of my trip and as a little tip if you plan on going right up behind it make sure to pop on some waterproof outer layers (including pants) as you will get absolutely drenched but it's worth it! So if you have time plan an extra day before or after to do the golden circle on it's own. All in all a wonderful experience and I can't wait to come back!

Review of 6-dagarsresa på Island runt Gyllene cirkeln, Blå lagunen och glaciärlagunen Jökulsárlón

Overall, great family time vacation! Highly recommended. We did the 6 day self drive tour and chose the quality accommodations so we had certain expectations for the lodging. Guide to Iceland really made things easy with the suggested itinerary and activities. My 20 yr and 17 yr old sons enjoyed all the activities. The itinerary combined the right amout of activities and suggestions if you wanted more sites to visit. The hotel quality overall was fine and it was convenient to have breakfasts included, especially as some of the hotels are pretty remote so you would have to drive a distance for breakfast otherwise. When we had an issue with one of the activities, they addressed the problem right away and issued us a partial refund within a day. Our service agent, Johnathan, was always prompt in answering questions and helping us make some last minute scheduling changes. My one gripe was with only one hotel for one night - the Fosshotel Nupar. We chose the highest comfort level for all our hotels and this one was truly subpar. It was very new in fact there was serious construction going on during our brief stay. The room was very clean. Accomodations were basic at best, a stool served as a nightstand and our large glass door to the outside didn't lock. The staff appeared overwhelmed at dinner and even more so at the self-serve buffet breakfast. The whole experience there was a bit "off." But, other than that one hiccup, I highly recommend this group.
