I stayed at this Super 8 when visiting the Boonesboro/Hagerstown area. I stayed for two nights. It needed some minor maintenance, but I was otherwise comfortable. VERY reasonably priced. Nice breakfast, close to good restaurants. Nothing fancy, but did the trick.

Had an amazing day on the Diamond Circle Tour, we were lucky in that we got the best day of summer for the tour. Our guide Julli was excellent! Very funny and informative and always had a story to tell. He could answers all our questions and showed us a few extra things. The tour was fun and I will... More

We booked the Lake Myvatn Tour after Viator messed up our booking for a caving tour (they notified us of the mistake AFTER we had paid). Book through Saga Tours directly! It was much better that way. The tour was a great time. All the attractions that we saw were beautiful and well-chosen. The guide was not only knowledgeable, but... More

For a truly different travel experience, you might want to check out a tour of Iceland. There is such a diversity of sights to see and activities to explore that there is something for every age group and level of interest. I lived there 50 years ago while teaching school to the dependents of our US Naval personnel stationed at... More

Great trip! Just hiking over the Ave field was interesting, and then we got to the cave. Lots of scrambling, but well guided, which made it feel like a "real" caving experience.

Loved our tour of the Lofthellir ice cave! Great tour guide (Arman). Easy short trek across a lava field and then into the cave after donning specialized rubber boots for just over an hour. Warning - a tight crawl space to enter the cave and then multiple times you will need to slide/sit on ice. We had a great time... More

This is one tour not to be missed if staying in the area. We were blown away by the natural beauty the cave had to offer. Getting there is not for the faint hearted but if you love obstacle courses this is for you! Great for anyone up for an adventure.
