We had an excellent experience with Saga travel. Upon booking, they offered to pick us up at the hotel, which was great because we'd never been to Akureyri before. The tour operator, Gisli, was very friendly and professional. We visited the Ekta fishery where we met Elvar, the owner. Such a great character and a neat experience. We joined the... More

We booked a private Lake Mývatn Classic tour for 8 of us with Saga Travel. Kata has been most helpful with the booking. Our tour guide was Gísli Rúnar Víðisson. He was also the tour guide who took us on the Northern Light tour. We had a fantastic time with Gisli both on the Northern Light tour and the private... More

The things we saw on this trip are too numerous to mention. Our tour guide, Sitti, (one reviewer said it was Siggi .. I think real name is Gauti) was the best! He went out of his way to show us special things, including the outdoor 'kitchen' where locals bake bread in steam pots underground. We loved our dinner at... More

Saga Travels did a woonderful job at helping to make our honeymoon to Iceland this past November (2013) such a memorable one. We took the Northern Lights tour in Akureyri on November 3 (booked through a Travelzoo deal), and then also arranged for the Waterfall Dettifoss Super Jeep Tour on November 4th. Our tour guides for both tours were fantastic,... More

We stayed at Dimmuborgir Guesthouse, who kindly helped us arranged a self-tailored superjeep tour to Dettifoss/Selfoss/Hafragilsfoss + Viti crater during our stay there on March 28 recently. the person assigned to us is Siggi, who works for Saga Travels but live in Myvatn on his farmland! at this time of the year, it's quite tricky to get to these places...

We took the Lake Myvatn Afternoon and Evening Tour Package. Everything on the itinerary was as promised – seeing the frozen Waterfall Godafoss, gazing at the stars while immersing ourselves in the Myvatn Nature baths, and of course, the breathtaking magical Northern Lights. Armann was our Tour Guide cum Driver. I felt safe sitting in the mini bus as Armann... More

This tour was great! The tour guides were the best that I have ever had. The tour was very focused on the participants and was not rushed. We moved on when everyone was ready, not based on a tight timeline. I would highly recommend this tour company!

I upgraded my my Northern Lights package to an all day tour and I am so delighted I did. First, our guide, Jorgensen Sigurdsson, was more like an old friend showing us around his beloved home than a tour guide. He was equally well versed in history and the science of this remarkably complex and fascinating country. We saw a... More

I was so glad I jumped on the Saga Travel bandwagon and upgraded my Northern Lights tour (booked with an Icelandair package) and got the deluxe version of the tour. It included a small bus tour to Gothafoss (a beautiful waterfall near Akureyri), craters, Icelandic horses, a hike through Dimmuborgir, a group dinner at a dairy farm, a trip to... More

My husband and I enjoyed the Northern Lights tour and although we didn't manage to see them up north (we saw them in Reykjavik) we had a great time with our tour guides. We also took advantage of a tour to the north and the fjords, thru tunnels and to the herring museum. It was a fun and interesting day... More
