          Lovely full day private tour
          Spent a lovely day with my guide, Lena. I have mobility issues and use a walker. Lena adjusted our schedule to allow me to what limited walking I could do to maximize my time and see the sites. Highly recommend.

          Wonderful!
          Our tour guide was Sam and he was amazing! We did both the Golden Circle tour and the South Coast tour with him. He was fluent in English and very knowledgeable. He took us to a few secret spots that were beautiful and less crowded. Highly recommend him and the company!

          Best private tour ever, with best guide ever!
          Sam is amazing! He knows a lot of Iceland's history and geography, is a fantastic driver, and very engaging. He made sure we saw all of the south shore must see spots as well as some less known (loved the troll houses)! Very comfortable, clean, and roomy van made for an easy 8+ hr tour. Highly recommend!!!!

          Incredible tour with Dmitri
          If I could rate this trip more than 5 stars I definitely would! Dmitri, our guide, took us to the most amazing locations and even added stops along the way to ensure we made the most of the trip. He helped us navigate the snow and ice safely to reach incredible hidden waterfalls that other tours often do not include. Afterwards, he also sent us all the amazing photos he took of the places we visited! Dmitri was so lovely and without doubt would contact him again when we return to Iceland.

          10 star tour
          The sights on the South tour were absolutely beautiful. Our tour was even more amazing because of our tour guide … from getting us comfortable, to making sure our every whim was catered to, to the knowledge he offered us on the sights…. Just perfection! DJ made our trip to Iceland one of the most fun trips we’ve ever taken!! Highly recommend it, make sure you specifically ask for DJ!

          Amazing Experience
          After 10 days of travel around the wonderful island, we booked a helicopter tour to fly over the erupting volcano. Despite 2 last minute cancellations due to air traffic suspension, we are so happy we waited for this amazing, once in a lifetime experience. The wonders of nature have never been so close! The guide was also extremely friendly and knowledgeable.

          Our Best Day in Iceland
          The South Coast tour and our helpful guide Fabio made this our best day in Iceland. He provided walking sticks for the spray-slick walk around and behind the 200’ high Seljalandsfoss waterfall, and the path all the way to the face of the Solheimajokull Glacier, where we stood on and touched the glacial ice. He took us to a charming overlook above the Vik church, beyond where the tour buses go, and to a big supermarket with great variety and prices. He stayed with us at all the stops and helped us over the dicey parts. He was flexible, recommending a pizza chain to us and even stopping to pick up our order on the way back to our Airbnb. We were concerned that he’s Italian, not a native Icelander, but he was knowledgeable, fluent in English with no difficulty communicating, and entertained us on the long drive home with saga and folklore tales. The vehicle was a bit small for a group of four, but not enough of a problem to keep this from being our best day in Iceland.

          South Coast
          Our private tour driver Didzis (from Latvia) was awesome. He re-arranged the order of the sites due to weather and how wet we would get at the falls. It was a clear day, so we were able to go to the Dyrholary Promontory/lighthouse and see the puffins nesting along the cliffs. The Seljalandfoss was the highlight. We also went into a cave and saw the hidden falls. It was amazing. Our driver was very nice and very professional.

          Loved Iceland and our guide Itai 2 days private tour We are 3 couples friends have just finished a cruise around island . Before our Viking cruise we took a two days trip. Our guide was Itai Cohen Sade . We had an amazing two days. We will never forget these two days. Mostly because of Itai that knew best where to take us and what to show us . He has a lot of knowledge to tell us about Iceland and every place we visited. He was very polite and sensitive. Pleasure to be with him. Everything we have seen was breathtaking. The many waterfalls, the amazing colors and especially green . Never seen such deep green before, so many shades. The whole nature was just amazing . We all recommend this tour company and our tour guide. All was perfect Thank you from all of us: Shoshi & Mogi Gor Rachel & Amos Grodjinovsky Yaffa Lustig & Udi Arieli We totally enjoyed : Private South Coast Tour with 6 main Attractions from Reykjavik Private Golden Circle Tour with 5+ attractions from Reykjavik

          Fraud
          Airport transfer bait and switch! Promised a Land Rover but not only did we not receive that car due to a “family emergency” (which others have posted about), we had to spend time looking for the driver (who was running late) and then had to stop for gas after jamming a suitcase in the front seat of a Toyota (even tho I told them we had 3 suitcases). After this experience, I cancelled my return. Here’s where it gets interesting: they cannot process my refund and ask for my bank account number and routing information (which they are not getting). Coincidentally, since I did business with this company, I’ve been getting spam crypto messages thru WhatsApp (which I’ve only used to communicate with them). I’ve also gotten notices that someone has tried accessing my venmo 3x since cancelling my return transfer. This is all too much of a coincidence. Ultimately, I will dispute the return charge that I’ve been trying to cancel and will submit the email exchanges to Chase.

          Beautiful Iceland
          Absolutely fantastic tour. Speedy, our tour guide and driver, was phenomenal. He knows so much about Iceland and has a wonderful way of sharing it and show you all the sites and hidden gems and even made it possible for me to do a little bit of shopping in Vik. I highly recommend this tour and Speedy.

          Bad weather but still a good day
          We had a wonderful day with Raphael Zaczkowski. The weather was not good which prevented us from seeing some of the beautiful places south of Reykjavik. Raphael did a great job taking us to all the places to at least try to see them. He was a great conversationalist and we enjoyed his company. He stopped at a couple of extra places as well in our tour.

        We did two private tours with Tourism Iceland. Both guides were Europeans, not Icelanders. One was fantastic. This was the other one.

        His English wasn't great, either spoken or comprehension, which led to some misunderstandings. He did not accompany us inside the attractions, or convey much information about Iceland or the sights we saw. He tailgated while driving. One site had an entry fee, which we paid, but on reviewing the itinerary afterwards saw that it should have been included.

        We would book with Tourism Iceland again, because our other guide was as wonderful as this one was poor. But we would make sure when booking that they understood we wanted one of their good guides.

        We had the most unbelievable day on our tour visiting the Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon.

        We arrive by cruise ship an our tour guide, Speedy, was waiting for us as we got off the ship. From there and for the next 12 hours, we had the most unbelievable day. He had every stop planned out and arranged so we could maximize our time at each of the incredible spots. Reviewed things like craters, lava from a previously erupted volcano, glaciers, waterfalls, hiking, local food such as Hot Springs Baked Rye Bread, with the grand finale at the blue lagoon.

        We were so impressed with Speedy’s knowledge of the area, the culture of Iceland, and he was answering all of our questions. It felt like we are we’re on a tour with a friend.

        I highly recommend this to her to anybody looking for an incredible day with lots of information and incredible sites to view. The next time we come back to Iceland, we will absolutely be doing this tour again!

        Thanks for a great day!

        We took a private tour to the Golden Circle. Great communication prior to the trip. Great price compared to a lot of the other companies. We ended up getting engaged in front of Oxarafoss frozen waterfall in Thingvellir. The only thing I would say is you’re spending a lot of time with the driver/tour guide. Ours was incredibly nice but there was a fairly big language barrier. He didn’t seem to grasp that we got engaged and kept talking about the history of Iceland but we couldn’t understand a good chunk of it. It was kind of funny and we had an amazing day but you may want to verify who is driving. I keep reading about “Speedy” in the reviews so we assumed we’d have him and did not. Overall great experience though!

        We are so very pleased that we chose to take a private tour of the Golden Circle. Sam, who may be the BEST tour guide on the island, customized as we went through our day, meeting the interests of everyone in the group. We were in awe of the scenery, Sam's knowledge, as his ability to make everyone happy from ages 9 to 80! I highly recommend this tour. So many lovely sights and even better memories!

        Iceland is a beautiful country full of stunning scenery and this tour covers some of it via the "Golden Circle" route.

        Our tour guide Didzis (DJ) was excellent throughout our private day tour. He was knowledgeable and helpful throughout and really made our tour enjoyable.

        All the sites we visited were breathtaking!!! This was a wonderful private tour. It was my wife’s 40th birthday trip and the experience was a memorable one. I want to thank our tour guide Sapinder for being so personable and taking care of us. I will definitely be recommending this company and Sapinder to all my friends.

        What a great day. Driver was very nice and went out of his way to accommodate some last minute request from my kids, including seeing some Icelandic ponies. All of the stops on the tour were awesome. The driver made it easy for us by driving a little further down the road to pick us up, instead of us having to circle back to the drop off point. The choice for lunch was outstanding and the driver helped me book that in advance. Online communication was very good before and during the trip. I would definitely recommend this tour, we had a great and memorable day.

        We had an awesome 10 hour day with Speedy. An expert in off the beaten track hikes, the volcano lava field was a highlight. Waterfalls and rainbows, it was non stop magic. I highly recommend this tour guide.
