All the good things you've read about GoEcco tours are true!

I took the day tour along the south of Iceland to the lagoons and back and absolutely loved it. It's impossible to take that route and not be blown away by the scenery. Jonas makes for the perfect guide and has an obvious and genuine love for the places we were taken. There seems to be nothing he doesn't know about the areas and you're in perfectly safe hands!

I got a real sense of being taken 'off the beaten track' and not just hitting a checklist of sights which is thanks to Jonas' knowledge of the areas. A huge bonus was that he seemed to be able It was superb and unique, exactly what I was looking for. I had another tour with a different company and while that one was also good, it still felt like tourism.

I plan to revisit Iceland soon and will only be taking tours with GoEcco!

We spent 4 days with Jonas and GOEcco with two families and a bunch of kids. Everywhere we went he knew interesting, offbeat things to do, people to see, and places to eat. It was always fun, and always an adventure. He has a gift for conveying the beauty, history, and geography of this amazing place. I can't imagine having a better guide service for a family trip. He was great with our kids, fun/interesting with adults and just great to be around.

The weather was not always great during our trip, but Goecco would seamlessly adjust the day's itinerary, so that it never seemed to be a problem. GO-Ecco! You'll be glad you did!

Iceland is a special place, and the Goecco crew really bring the magic with their off-the-beaten-path tours, the guides' wealth of knowledge, thoughtfulness, energy, remarkable personalities and obvious - and infectious - passion for their country, history and spectacular natural landscape. As with taking photos of the sights, it's hard to do justice to the amazing fun of the Goecco experience in a review, but I really enjoyed myself tremendously and want to thank Jonas, Christina and Teitur for the incredible adventures. And I guess I'll also have to thank the worst summer weather since 1953 for giving me an excuse to come back! ;)

We hired this tour based on what we read on this website.
Our tour guide, Teitur, is a local guy who loves what he does and has secret places he likes to share.
They create an experience rather than make tours. From the unexpected photo stop to getting out a bottle of red wine infront of the glacial lagoon just to appreciate "the moment"...
The best tour I've taken ever...
I will definitely come back to Iceland and book with them, with the only difference that I won't book any tours, I will let them take me wherever they consider according to weather...
