We tried a couple other smaller travel agencies while we were at iceland and both had issues. Reykjavik Excursions will provide plain tours and services but you can avoid unexpected surprises that you could experience from other smaller agencies. Not many go to Iceland several times so if you want to be safe just use RE.

We had a great guide who quite rightly was proud of his country & was extremely helpful. the day covered all the main attractions - the waterfall, national park,Gullfoss geysir. It was stunning scenery, we went in December with snow on the ground and would go again to spend more time at each location as we fitted snowmobiling in as... More

Awful service. Booked to go on the wonders of snaefellsnes tour but coach only stopped for 3 minutes without any indication of telling us that they are that tour. Even asked around (for each bus) and waited for the coach at least 10 minutes before pick up time. In the end couldn't get on because obviously missed it. Called the... More

We used R.E. for all of our excursions in Reyjkavik. All but one were booked through Iceland Air when we booked our flights. Our booking info for each excursion was emailed to us by Iceland Air, one booking sheet per excursion. Each sheet is what you need to board the bus for your excursion, essentially serving as a ticket. The... More

Booked on line as wanted everything planned before arriving. We were collected from hotel on time and changed to a larger coach. They usually pick you up 8:30-9pm and drive out of the city for an hour/ hour an half away from light pollution. If you head towards mosfellsbaer keep an eye out for the graveyard decorated with lights, it's... More

We used this company for our airport transportations, the Golden Circle tour and the Northern Lights tour. Very well organized, always on time, all the guides were very friendly, polite, lively and informative. We were lucky to see the Northern Lights on the second free tour. The coaches were very comfortable and had USB charging points in the seats, free... More

My boyfriend and I went on the Golden Circle Tour on 29th December. Our tour guide was very informative and helpful throughout the whole day. Unfortunately at the end of the trip two people didn't turn up for the bus and so we thought they had gotten lost. Our tour guide stayed in the car park in the wind and... More

We used Reykjavic excursions to get from the airport and for a few days trips. In general they were on time and did come into the hotel and let us know we were being picked up. The day trips were excellent. However what made me give them 1 star was that on two occasions the bus driver did not let... More
