When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After thorough research of the many travel companies that offer self-drive tour services around the country, I found Iceland Road Trip to be an incredible value both from a cost perspective and for the services provided. They handled the car rental reservation, booked my hotels for me, and booked tours, like a glacier hike and snowmobile ride. They made it very, very easy for someone who had never been to Iceland before.

One day there was severe weather, and they booked me a second night in the same hotel since the roads were closed to get to the next hotel. When a glacier hike tour company changed the schedule hike time and I wasn't able to make the new time, Iceland Road Trip refunded me. All of this was handled quickly and painlessly.

The itinerary for the self-drive tour was quite detailed, and each night I was able to plot out my course for sightseeing the next day per their suggestions.

Overall, an excellent value for the money spent. Quick, honest, and helpful service! I saw an unfortunate review where someone gave them 1/5 stars because the reviewer didn't understand this was for a self-drive tour. That was clearly evident from the beginning when I booked with Iceland Road Trip. You pay for the service provided and the handling/reservation of logistics and arrangements (like lodging and where to drive and see from Point A to Point B on a given day). All I had to do was show up, not worry, and enjoy my time in a beautiful country. Would book from this company again 100%.

Bragi at IRT did a brilliant job booking our customised fortnight road trip right around Iceland-not once but three times amended, due to Covid. All arrangements worked seamlessly with great hotels , good hire car and excellent recommendations for stops and excursions including a hand annotated map which was a nice personal touch. He also willingly added a few extra excursions I had found on line. IRT were also great value compared with other U.K. based ‘household names’ travel companies. Would strongly recommend this company if you are booking a holiday to Iceland

Going to Iceland in March is not for the faint of heart, but Roadtrip Iceland did an amazing job of putting together an itinerary that showed us the best of a country caught between winter and spring. We opted for the 9 night 10 day trip with the addition of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. The "comfort" accommodations were beyond comfortable - and the settings of some of these lodgings were breathtaking. We took advantage of the many hot springs. We saw the Northern Lights. When we encountered any glitch (weather related) they responded immediately. The waterfalls! The craters! The seals! The ice cave! Stunning scenery and so well orchestrated by Roadtrip Iceland. My hearty recommendation.

We did the A1 circular self driving road trip of Iceland for 9N & 10 Days - full marks to Bragi and his team of Iceland Road Trip.com for giving us a wonderful experience overall.
We started looking for a good local travel agency in Jan 23 and sent out preliminary mail to about 7 agencies for our tour in July. We chose IRT because of the prompt and clear answers from Bragi to all our queries + reviews from other travellers + the price offered in a transparent manner. He & team IRT were also quick to answer our queries / resolve few issues during our 10 day long nearly 2500 Km journey.
Due to bad weather our whale watching tour got cancelled at the last moment. Got back our money, back into my bank within 5 days. Outstanding service. Keep this going - Bragi and team IRT. Wish you all the best

Just returned from the 5 day self-drive tour in Southern Iceland. It was truly our best vacation ever. My husband and I have been married for almost 26 years and this is the FIRST time after lots of travel, in the US and internationally, that he self-proclaimed to have "a really fun time". The self-drive tour was perfect for our style and pace. I loved that Road Trip Iceland did all of the booking and provided an informative and interesting itinerary. They saved me weeks of research. I'm always the trip planner so it was truly a vacation for me too. We chose the Quality hotel package and thoroughly enjoyed every hotel. Each one had a unique specialty that made us feel comfortable and welcome. Braggi and Oli were extremely responsive to our needs prior to the trip and during the tour. I actually booked our vacation, airfare, and tour package 3 days prior to travel. It was a last minute decision to take a trip during my Eid Al Fitr corporate holiday. I work in Qatar and my husband runs our ranch in Texas, so Iceland was exactly halfway for both of us to meet and spend quality time together. The trip did not disappoint. We were able to relax, enjoy each other, and marvel in the spectacular nature that makes Iceland so special. The itinerary was informative, full of amazing highlights, but allowed us to enjoy at our own pace. We both are planning to visit again in the future.

I am very thankful, that through the perfectly and professionally organized trip, Iceland Road Trip allowed me and my wife to have a chance to see wonders of Iceland. Actually, this trip raised furthermore interest in Iceland and we plan to come back.

The choice of hotels was excellent, their quality and the hospitality of their employees was really great. Specially we will remember the generosity and friendliness of the owner of the guesthouse in Hnjótur and his tasty dinner.

I do appreciate Iceland Road Trip’s flexibility to make our stay longer than standard offered program.

Their idea to spend full last day in Reykjavik was perfect, town itself is not really big but offers a lot of touristic attractions and museums.

The guide, we have received contained a lot of good tips and important information.

For sure I will recommend , Iceland Road Trip services to my friends and people I know that they are thinking about visiting Iceland.

Roadtrip Iceland did an outstanding job helping us to pull together an 11-day trip on the ring road - a group of 4 couples/2 cars. We had 5 geologists in our group so there was definitely an agenda of what needed to be seen. Bragi helped us add days to the standard tour so we could accomplish that. Other tour companies just had a standard plan, and we greatly appreciated the flexibility we had with Roadtrip Iceland. They did excellent work finding us nice places where we could all stay that weren't the standard large hotel. They provided us with guides on what we would see each day as well as tips on things that might be unique to Iceland, the time of year we were traveling or the area we were in. It made for a less stressful trip with the focus being on the sights. We didn’t have any issues on the trip so I can’t comment on the support they might provide in a problem situation but given their responsiveness to everything else, my guess is that they would also do an outstanding job. We sang Bragi’s praises every day and would highly recommend Roadtrip Iceland to anyone planning a driving trip in Iceland.

IRT planned a weeklong self-drive tour for our family of 3, arranging for rental car, hotels (a real challenge when travelling in summer due to demand) and stops along the way. The hotels recommended were good choices for us based on our needs and the driving itinerary included all the places we wanted to visit - Bragi, our trip planner, was also helpful in giving guidance on how much time to spend, making sure we did not overload any given day. Even more impressive was Bragi's willingness and patience responding to our myriad of questions as we nailed down the details.

With the stresses of looking for and making bookings all handled by Iceland Road Trip, our Iceland experience was even more enjoyable! We went during peak season and without much advance planning, and they were able to plan a great itinerary for us even with limited availability.

I would recommend their service to anyone and definitely consult with them again if we return to Iceland in the future. Communication was thorough and prompt and any questions I had were answered.

All accommodations were very good, and seemed to get better as the trip progressed. We were especially pleased with the nice breakfast buffets every day.

The whale watching tour was excellent; we really enjoyed the guide and her passion for the whales. (Elding Adventure at Sea) We appreciated her quickly emailing us photos she took of the whales.

We spent our honeymoon in Iceland and had a splendid tour planned for us by them. Unlike other companies we considered, they managed to design a fantastic trip that took us from the airport in the West to the ferry port in the East while incorporating all the landmarks we wished for. Even our 5h flight delay didn't cause any problems. Therefore, we highly recommend Iceland Road Trip!
