“Fantastic service/experience on Northern lights trip”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

This trip involved driving outside of Reykjavik to view the Northern Lights for 3/4 hours. It was a small group with only 10 or so people which seemed to have more of a personalised service than the other companies with their large coaches. Not only did our guide tell us lots of interesting facts about Reykjavik, the northern lights turned up in full mystical flow (see photo) and he helped everyone with their camera settings and shared his photos from the event by email in case our photos didn't come out that well, and beyond the call of duty returned my camera strap the next morning which had fallen out of my bag.

Thank you for your review. Glad we caught you before you left the country it's sad to loose stuff when traveling. But of course the best part is the fact we got a great display of the Northern Lights ;)

“Best day trip we've ever been on”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We booked a day trip down to Jokulsarlon from Reykjavik with GTI and it was simply amazing. Our driver, "Gummi", is so passionate about his homeland and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone enjoys the day. On the way back he received a tip there was a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights and took the time and effort to find out of the way places where we could see them and take pics, none of which was actually part of the day trip.There were 8 of us in the 16 seater mini bus and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day. I would highly recommend booking with GTI if in iceland and we certainly will again next time we are there

“Excellent Grand Circle tour”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

I took the Grand Circle tour on Sunday, November 3rd and loved it. There were 7 in my group, and I found the smaller size to be a nicer way of traveling. I wish I could remember the name of our guide because he was excellent. He gave us so much information about what we were seeing and about Iceland itself. It was a wonderful day .. highly recommended.

“Golden Circle with Jacob”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

Brilliant day out. Some of the most spectacular and rugged scenery you could imagine.
Trip was made good by Jacob the guide, very knowledgable and funny guy. Make sure you ask for him.
Thanks to Eln (sorry for the mix up ( abducted by another tour company)(private joke)) for organising tours.

“wonderful tours”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Thanks to Bob Murray our tour guide for all 4 days. All we did was do what he said and it was all worthwhile. We had amazing tours everyday and it seemed like the next day was the best. Went to eat at Carusos and that was delicious and nice atmosphere. Even got to see the northern lights the first night there. The weather in Oct was beautiful. Everything was just perfect right down to the Blue Lagoon on the last day.

Thank you for your review. For a 4 day trip to Iceland in October you must be the luckiest group in the word getting the weather you got. Bob asks who do you know and can we offer you a job?
