I recently turned 40 years old, my partner gave me the wonderful gift of a trip to Iceland. I spent sometime before we travelled looking at various tours and things to spend our time doing whilst on the holiday. I stumbled across Solstice Tours and emailed them, Jon emailed me back within 24 hours to advise the cost of the tour and that he had availability, i liked the personal touch from the email and the fact it was a small local company using a 4X4 and felt i would get better value for money doing it this way than from a large company on a large coach.
We booked the Golden Circle Tour that included the Northern Lights that for me was a big part of the trip. I was emailed before we arrived to advise the chances of seeing the event and this was doubtful due to cloud.
We were collected on time in his vehicle and there were two other people in the vehicle with Jon on the tour. We travelled around all day and saw the most amazing sights, a real highlight was Gollfoss, the most amazing waterfall in the cold weather and ice. Jon went out of his way to give us some spikes to put on our feet to get us close to the waterfall in an area that was closed due to te bad weather conditions, without the spikes it was not safe to get so close. This was something that we would not have received from any other tour, certainly a unique selling point for Jon and Solstice. All throughout the day we were given the history of the island and so much information, he also went out of his to ensure we did the things we wanted to do and in the order we wanted.
The northern lights were due to be the evening event on that day but this was not possible so Jon asked if we would be flexible and should the weather break he would call us and we would go out to see them. Sure enough to his word the next evening he called late in the evening and we went out to see the amazing sight, he even took pictures and emailed these to me once i was home.
Jon and his tour were the highlight of the whole trip and knowing what i know about Jon and the company i would have missed out big time if i had not done the trip with him, the trip was great value for money and WHEN i go back to Iceland again i will get in contact to do another trip with him. Thank you for the amazing trip Jon. Paul & Peter
