This was one of my most favorite vacations of all time. Guide to Iceland set this up perfectly and I ran into no issues whatsoever. I plan to go to Iceland again and I will be booking through this company when I do.
We had the best weather, we were very lucky to be able to see the Nothern lights in weeks before and days after. Nothing was cancelled for us due to bad weather, and our guide made sure this happened as he pushed us all to see everything on time and some things ahead of schedule. The hotels we stayed on, where nice, no issues and the tours and buses where always on time. The people are always helpful eventhough not all very friendly, but you get used to their moods as they are not rude. I recommend this tour 100%, is full of amazing natural sites and the guides make it full with very interesting notes.
We loved everything that Guide to Iceland planned for us. Before leaving the US, my husband read our self-drive itinerary completely and marked his "must see" places on Google maps. Our itinerary included essential Iceland sights as well as some off-the-beaten path ideas. All of our reservations were correct and ready for us when we arrived. I was in contact with Guide to Iceland before our trip because our ticket to Blue Lagoon had the wrong name on it, but that was quickly corrected. We live in Wyoming so we are familiar with winter driving conditions and the 4WD SUV with studded winter tires that we rented helped us feel confident even in an unfamiliar country. Having a wifi hotspot was so convenient and saved us money on international data charges with our mobile company. Thank you, Guide to Iceland, for making our vacation easy and enjoyable.
The self-guided tour was so much fun. We had the best time by being able to travel on our own schedule. Weather in March is quite unpredictable and we learned that because the weather patterns change quickly you must be prepared to drive in less than ideal conditions. Just remember it’s your vacation and safety is first so drive carefully.
