My husband and I were in Iceland for ten days in August and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We went on a number of tours from Reykjavik, one of which was particularly memorable. Sverrir was our capable, friendly and flexible guide on a 10-11 hour tour of Southern Iceland (with the smallish company, Saga tours). Often the tour companies must drop... More

We took Saga Travel's combined Lofthellir Ice Cave and Gjastykki tour from Myvatn. My wife and I are 70 and, although we are reasonably fit, we weren't sure if we were up to the cave part. I wrote to the company expressing our concerns and received a reassuring reply. They were right. Although the tour was somewhat challenging, it was... More

I would highly recommend Saga Travel for any tour in Iceland! Our group of 5 adults booked a guided tour of Lofthellir Lava Cave during our 11-day Icelandic vacation and all thoroughly loved the experience. This was my second trip to Iceland, and the cave tour was only one of many activities we participated in during our vacation (we also... More

Thats one big tick off the bucket list. Had no idea it was even possible to see the northern lights this time of year so was delighted to stumble across a poster in the saga shop (apparently it is usually from Sept) I must admit we were very skeptical, asked for a guarantee to see them but of course this...

My wife and I accompanied two others for a 11 hour tour of Godfoss, Myvatn hot spring area, Detifoss, two particularly interesting basalt formations, and a lagoon. We finished our afternoon with a nice lunch on the deck at Husavik complete with Kaldi dark beer. What made the trip special was our guide, Gisle. A 250+ lb. Icelandic strong man... More

I went to Akuyreri for a holiday weekend break. It was my first time visiting the North of Iceland and as my adventure was rather unplanned, I was worried that there were so much places to see in so little time. To be on the safe side and more time efficient, I decided to go on the Diamond Circle tour.... More

My husband and I wanted a more personalized tour than we had experienced when traveling on a cruise in the past so while on a stop on a recent cruise in Akureyri, we had arranged a private tour with Saga Tours. We were picked up right on time at the pier where our ship was docked and we enjoyed a... More

we recently did the ice cave trip. We were on a cruise ship and Saga Travel picked us up from the cruise port and delivered us to the small group going to the ice cave. The cave is on a family property and is blissfully untouched by tourism. there are no souvenir shops or amenities. We had a fantastic foray... More

We booked a private tour, thinking simply that it would be a great way to see things that we wouldn't find on our own. That turned out to be the understatement of our trip-Iceland is not big on spoiling all that scenic beauty with signs, so we would never have been able to see the amount of things we did... More

I enquired with several tour agencies in Iceland and found the responses from Tinna to be the most friendly, sincere & helpful. As a result of that, I decided to go with Saga Travel, although my tour was in the south. Due to time constraints, I had an unusual tour: combining the Golden Circle and glacier lagoon with an overnight... More
