- A little surprise from a local winemaker.
Great scenery and trip was good. Not too many whales to see this time. Spotted only 3.
Amazing trip with Gentle Giants. Nice crew which give a lot of explications and who made their best to give you the best experience they can. Go on without doubt :)
Great tour guide! Saw a 2 Humpback whales and 1 Minke whale. We have only good things to say about this company and the people.
Highlight of our trip in Iceland! Aksel was a great guide and made everyone feel relaxed and excited at the same time. Definitely pay extra for the rib / speed boat package as we got to whale spotting area much faster than the bigger boats, and also got closer to the whales.
Enjoyed all of the amazing sights. Secret Lagoon was a good experience - a natural pool in a thermal area and uncrowded. There was a viewing walkway surrounding the lagoon , even could see a very small geyser while bathing. Disappointed that there was no information shared re: history, culture, geology ( i.e. it wasn't a guided tour) - driver only drove the mini van which was not in good condition ((broken entry step, worn interior/exterior). Too much time was allotted at Geysir ( 2 1/2 hours) and not enough time at Gullfoss ( 1/2 hour). Recommend this itinerary but with another vendor.
Over an hour was spent picking up people...some didn't show so the driver Viktor had to go back again to pick people up. Viktor was very nice and friendly but he is not a good driver - drove way too fast, was constantly checking his phone. He made me and several others very nervous!! The planning seemed off - we went to the Hidden Lagoon first. Had almost 2 hours there...when we got to the geysers we had 2 hours there...and the frustration was when we got to the beautiful waterfalls, we had 20 minutes!!!!! It didn't make sense...the geyers should have been an hour...and at least an hour at the waterfall.
Everything worked well, even the refund for a cancalled tour because of the weather worked well and fast...!
I got an awesome experience with Arctic Adventures! The snorkeling is just unbelivably and breathtaking. But I would recommend it to anyone to rent a car and drive around iceland, because the tours are more expensive than a car and you don't have as much time as you want at one place!
A funny and nice experience in iceland! If I have more time, I would like to participate longer tour like 5hrs or more to hike on glacier.
