Hello, we were very satisfied with the tour and especially with the friendly guide Frederik who has great knowledge and provided us a very joyable day.It was a very interresting day.
We had booked a two-days Northern Lights tour with Travel Reykjavik. But, just the morning that we had to leave for the tour, the South coast was under the treat of a heavy snow storm. Our driver came at the meeting point and he explained us the weather conditions. He said that we can go, but we would not do the sightseeing that we were supposed to do that day as the roads were closed. We would thus go directly to our hotel and we could do the thermal baths at the hotel. On the way, we were hit by the snow storm. And honestly, you don't want to be in a snow storm in Iceland! terrible wind and visibility almost zero! The driving skills of our driver were amazing. Although i was a bit stressed because of hard weather conditions,the driver was totally on top of the situation and he took us safe and sound to the hotel. We spent the afternoon in the thermal baths in the snow storm (a worth-doing experience). The next day, great weather, and we could do the plan for the day. On top of that, our driver took us on a quick sightseeing tour to see a few of the things that we were supposed to have seen the day before. The driver was extremely kind, explaining us a lot of things on the history, geography, politics, geology, etc of Iceland. A great experience for us and we would like to thank our driver from Travel Reykjavik!
Loved the Golden Circle excursion - great experience - would have liked more time at each destination maybe 90 mins as opposed to 60 - relt a bit rushed at times.Loved the Blue Lagoon excursion - very expensive but great fun.Northern lights - feel there needs to be more management of expectations - expensive for what you get or don get to see - very dependent on weather & conditions.You also need a slr camera - not i phone to do Northern lights - that needs to be communicated more effectively. Brilliant pick up & drop off bus routes - v easy & well organised.
Everything was perfect. Timing for pick ups was great. Reliable service, and friendly people. Would highly recommend.
