Wonderful 8-day trip around Iceland with Thales
Aug 2021
I have nothing but great things to say about this tour! It was very well organized and fit so much into 8 days. Iceland is one of the most beautiful places I've ever visited. Our tour guide, Thales, was such a joy to be around everyday and really did make the trip. I loved his detours to some of his favorite places, making it feel much more personalized. He helped us get the COVID test we needed for our return flight which was a huge relief for my mom and I. Overall, I would recommend Troll Expeditions trips to anyone visiting Iceland!

Amazing 8 days around Iceland with Jacob
Aug 2021
From the start to the end everything was organized and perfectly executed. The trip was organized by Troll Expedition and all the extra activities that were offered were available and done in a professional manner. For me personally, the highlight of the trip was the Volcano hike and the Snorkeling in a spring at a super cold water of 2^C degrees. Definitely once in a lifetime experience, I would recommend 10/10.

Big thanks to Jacob for taking care of our group as we were family. He is an excellent driver and manages time perfectly. Also big thanks to Maggie, (she was our tour guide for the Volcano hike) for letting me that waterproof jacket so that I don't freeze on the mountain.

Excellent 8-day Iceland tour by Troll Expeditions.
Aug 2021 • Couples
We took 8-day mini bus tour of Iceland and the Volcano tour operated by Troll Expeditions. We made the booking though Guide to Iceland. We enjoyed the trip and had a great time. Our driver and guide, Jakob was excellent- knowledgeable, patient and professional. He’s also an excellent and safe driver. We appreciate his extra effort to take us to Covid testing in Reykjavik on the last day and making sure we got on the volcano tour in the evening. We are vegetarians and he made sure there were vegetarian choices for meals. It was easy to get through to Troll to get prompt responses to our questions and concerns. Overall we had a great time in Iceland. I would definitely recommend Troll Expeditions.

Outstanding 8 day tour with João and Hinrik
I did the 8 day trip with Troll. The tour was packed with a lot of cool stuff (and we had a lot of luck with the weather), seeing Iceland at its best.

I had João as a guide for the first 6 days. João is a cheerful and funny guide with an absolute adoration of the Icelandic landscape. He gave us an unique outside perspective into Iceland and Icelandic culture, being Portuguese himself. Very helpful and great to travel with!

After 6 days, some of us who booked the 8 day tour had to switch buses and groups, which was a bit weird, but this way we had the chance to spend the last two days with Hinrik. Hinrik was a very relaxed and easygoing guide and was great with the children that we're part of the group.

Both João and Hinrik made the past week unforgettable. 10/10 would recommend

Once-in-a-lifetime Icelandic Experience with Thales
Aug 2021
This trip is part of our honeymoon, and it is the best trip we ever had. This 8-day tour is probably the best choice for anyone who wants to get a full experience of Iceland in a relatively short amount of time.

Thales is an exceptional tour guide - he is well-read of all kinds of Icelandic stories, sagas, history, details about what are going to see. You can feel his passion to show you the best of Iceland. He is humorous, energetic, friendly, just making the tour so much enjoyable.

He puts a lot of effort in trip planning, such that every day is full of surprises and unforgettable memories; there is right amount of toilet breaks so you are always in a good state to enjoy the sightseeings; you won't feel bored even if you didn't sign up for optional activities as he will show you something else equally amazing in the mean time; he made sure hotels can server dinner even if we arrive late.

Overall, I would say this trip is a once-in-lifetime experience, and I strongly recommend to everyone who has the privilege to go on a tour in Iceland.

A brilliant tour made even better by Siggi!
The standout of the entire experience was the tour leader Siggi. I would go back again just to hang out with Siggi! He was very professional, good humoured, knowledgeable, energetic, and he went above-and-beyond to accommodate special requests that remembers of the group had. Thank you Siggi for making a great trip into an incredible one.

The tour itself was excellent - Iceland itself is beautiful and there is lots to see and do. There is a lot of driving involved, and I would tell other people to expect that some days will be very busy, while others less so. We never felt like we missed out on anything, however.

The transport was clean, comfortable, and modern, with onboard wifi which was a big plus.

The accommodation on the trip was slightly worse than expected, however I understand that we visited at an unexpectedly busy time and lots of hotels were still shut due to COVID. It was still comfortable, clean, etc.

The Troll central team were very accommodating of our needs too, and replied fast when we had questions for them. They made special arrangements for us when we had to leave the tour 1 day early, and were quick to refund us when we had a problem with a hotel. Thank you to Natalia and Ingo for their quick support.

Overall, I would highly recommend the tour if you are visiting Iceland.

Jul 2021 • Family
Iceland is so beautiful and this tour did a great job at showing us. In only 8 days we saw so many different landscapes and had crazy experiences like going on a glacier hike or seeing an active volcano. Icelandic horse back riding was one of my personal favorites. The best part of the tour were the people tho. We got lucky with a small, amazing group of eight and it was great to get to know everyone throughout the journey. Our tour guide Jacob was also super friendly and told us a lot about the Island. He did an awesome job at showing us around and was definitely a part of the group. Jacob also helped everyone with whatever they needed and had lots of good recommendations for things to do in Reykjavik and ways to save money. It was a pleasure. The hotels were very nice for the most part and many of them had hot pots. We had some longer bus rides, which was tiring at times, but the Icelandic music, Jacob’s explanations and stories about Iceland and occasional restroom breaks made it not so bad. The destination was always worth the ride. I can only recommend this tour.

Great tour and guides
Jun 2021 • Solo
This tour was amazing. We got to see SO much, my favorites were definitely the ice cave, the glacier, and the lagoons. It's a wonderful way to see the country. Hotels were clean and meals were delicious. However, the best part of this trip was our guide Joao. He was flexible, accommodating, and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to include our requests in the tour and make sure everyone got to participate in all activities. He handled our daily schedule expertly and kept us on time. He also made our little group of strangers feel like family for a week. I was apprehensive about spending so long with a guide and group but he made the whole experience extremely fun.
