We were promptly met by our guide, Vidir Kristjansson, at the cruise terminal. The stunning scenery is non-stop. Vidir was knowledgable and quite eager to share his country with us. Walking through the towering cliffs of Thingvellir National Park was awesome. Having never seen a geyser before, Geysir Hot Springs put on quite a demonstration. And, the blue hue of Little Geysir was captivating. The major attraction of our trip was the magnificent Gullfoss, and it did not disappoint. I can understand why people risk their life to get the perfect picture. Our tour continued to Faxi waterfall and the geothermal overs at Laugavata Fontana. Our visit to the geothermal ovens coincided with a loaf of baked bread being dug up from it's steamy oven.
We had a fabulous day with Vidir. One of our traveling companions was suffering from a nasty cold. Vidir took the time to make sure she was comfortable throughout the day and allowed her to stay in the van when she didn't feel well enough to walk from the parking lots.
Booked a pick up at the airport with a 2 hour stop at the Blue Lagoon - great way to start the day after flying all night. They track your flight, so even though mine was delayed 2 hours, it wasn’t a problem. Highly recommend. Approximately $450CDN including return to the airport.
A very professional and reliable company. Easy to call from overseas to book. Most impressive was that they were very efficient in handling client requests. I booked a transfer between airport and hotel on 12 Aug but had to cancel it on that day due to flight cancellation by airline company. I called the company which the staff explained the charge could not be refunded as that was less than 24 hour notice (that was fair enough). After a few hours, my flight was finally rerouted and I sent email requesting transfer again. They said they were happy to send a car to the airport and asked me for revised flight no etc They responded all the way by email promptly (because I was unable to make international calls), even after office hours. The driver was already standing at the airport when we landed after 12 midnight. The driver was very professional, giving us information on Iceland when driving till around 1am.
Very pleased we planned our excursions through Snaeland Travel. Brynjar made the booking process simple and pleasant. Pick up from the airport to the Hilton Canopy Hotel with a two-hour Blue Lagoon stop was perfect and stress-free. Our full day private south shore and full day private Golden Circle tours were exceptional. Our tour guide Vidir was warm, knowledgeable and clearly enjoyed showing my family the highlights of Iceland. Highly recommend all around.
