Absolutely first class tour. The guide, itinerary, transport arrangements excellent. Katherine the guide is an absolute GEM. So knowledgeable and helpful, really helped to make the tour a wonderful experience. Thanks to Sarah Bansgrove, who made booking the holiday so simple and easy. Be prepared to budget for food which like everything in Iceland is expensive. However Iceland is a unique country. It has so much to offer and is so diverse it's unbelievable. One of the best holidays i've ever had. We will be going back.”
Tour was very enjoyable and the guide and bus driver were knowledgeable and friendly.
I had thought it was a small tour of only 10 people but there were 30 people on the tour but the bus could seat 50 so there was plenty of room for everyone.”
AnnaLaura was very informative, friendly and funny, well organized and prompt. I really enjoyed her and her passion for her country. I feel like I got to see and experience beautiful Iceland to it's fullest. I would have liked to at least try a 'sample plate' of the local cuisine (whale, fermented shark, lamb, horse, etc.) without having to order an entire entree of just one specialty meat. Overall a very memorable holiday that will be cherished forever! ”

The Land of Fire and Ice
Known as the 'Land of Fire and Ice', Iceland is a country of contrasts. To the north is the famed Golden Circle, made up of Gulfoss, 'the Golden Falls', Geysir Hot Spring Area and Thingvellir National Park - a wonderland of geothermal and hydro activity. To the south lies quiet fishing villages, black lava beaches, glaciers and the troublesome volcano Eyjafjallajokull, which caused chaos over European skies in 2010.
