Modern and efficient service from this company . My only moan was sometimes you don't get dropped to the door but upto 500 yards away. Not a big deal really just a little surprised.

This 10 hour trip was very entertaining , interesting and worthwhile Our guide spoke excellent English and explained a great deal about iceland and their way of life He took us to the 1 St parliament and some geysers but the most fun and scarey part was the snowmobile ride There was no snow to be seen so I couldn't...

We drove to Thingvellir to see the lights, and the view was spectacular. I liked this company in particular, because, if the light aren't available, you can go until you see them. (Most companies only let you try once more.) The bus also had wifi and USB chargers so you can share your lights photos with your friends on the... More

Yes, I know the Northern Lights are temperamental but sadly for the £100+ my wife and I paid, I'd expect more than to drive out for 45 mins, park up for an hour, drive somewhere else for 45 mins and park up for another hour. We were sold the trip based on the fact the tour guides communicate with one... More

I have to admit, after reading the reviews I was a bit wary. We booked 3 different excursions with them. We were picked up on time and had great guides. They were enthusiastic and informative. I would definitely recommend them.

Door to Door collections and drop offs to/from the airport and Blue Lagoon all done in a timely manor and with extreme professionalism. We also took the Golden Circle tour which was fantastic with a very knowledgeable rep onboard.

The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is because when we called to confirm our trip they told us it was cancelled because of a storm. It was not. I had to have the front desk of my hotel call again since I wrote an email asking for a full refund since the tour was "cancelled", and... More

Me and my husband did this tour, it was really worth it, the only down side was that when we got to the national park it was raining, we still went on the walk through the rift. We couldn't fully enjoy this due to the weather but we saw things you wouldn't from the coach. Enjoyable day.

A must see experience when in Iceland. We went with Reykjavik Excursions who managed everything extremely well (except the weather!). The tour takes you to the Geothermal field at Haukadalur (Geysir), the mid Ocean ridge, a tomato greenhouse and the Gullfoss falls. Fantastic experience and good narration by our leader. Lunch is not provided. Tour was the right length and... More

Went on an excursion with Reykjavik Excursions and it was an ok trip. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the lights due to the full moon and weather, but it was kinda cool watching all the buses converge at one of the locations in a last ditch effort before the clouds covered the clear sky. Based of the grinding of... More
