Responded 3 weeks ago
Dear petek667, Thank you for reaching out to us. We understand your frustration and can assure you that our customer care team is providing all the available information to you as well as any other customer. Please rest assured, we have no intention of keeping funds for non-provided services. Unfortunately, the work of our finance department, as well as our company in general, has been highly affected by COVID-19. The spread of the crisis resulted in thousands of cancellations and most of our staff being laid off. Our finance department is operating by 25% of their previous capacity and is struggling with a backlog. Refunds are being issued with a significant delay. At this point, we can only thank you for your patience and ask you to give it a bit more time. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused.

I have cancelled an April family tour early in March (due to Covid19). First, we were promised to receive a full refund up to four weeks later; then six to eight. Today we've started week number ten and we still haven't received the refund. I think those guys don't realise how

Dear drd1977, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is true that our refund process is currently delayed and we are working to resolve this as fast as we can. Unfortunately, due to the current circumstances it's taking longer than we expected and we cannot advise on a specific date. We understand the situation is not ideal and we apologize for this frustrating experience. If you are worried at all we can always check your booking and your request - you just need to e-mail us and we will get back to you. We can assure you that our customer care team answers everybody as fast as possible. It can be that a reply will take longer on weekends, but if you have not heard back from us in several days, we encourage you to reach out to us again by sending a new message. Once again, we apologize for this troublesome experience.

You'll spend 6 hours, if you're lucky on a bus. What you see is no natural wonder. It's a tunnel cut out of the ice with chainsaws, essentially. To make matters worse, I really don't want to be lectured about the climate by a scientifically ignorant school girl who gets almost

The snowmobiling part of this tour was a blast. I loved being on the glacier and getting to see such a spectacular view. The ice cave was very small and very underwhelming. I chose this tour because I really wanted to see an ice cave. I wouldnt count what we saw as an ice cave.

Promised was thrilling experience in the most unique ice cave there is. The reality - one tiny cave, unable to fit 20 people sitting inside. ---- Tour starts at Gullfoss meeting point, from here you are seated in one of the "super jeep" vans with huge wheels to take you to
