          Fantastic tour on Snaefellsness peninsula!
          Me and my mother had booked a small group tour, but it became private as we were traveling off season in early May. Adam was the best host, kind, flexible and very nice talking to during the long trip. We got to see all things as described + some extras including churches and lighthouses which my mother loved. Adam provided a walking pole to my mother when needed, much appreciated. The Jeep offered a really good view both at the side windows and in the front, much better than the mini bus we went with another day (another company). Kinga replied very fast on all my questions via e-mail before the tour. Highly recommend Try Iceland Tours!

          Good tour, bad customer service.
          The tour was ok, we saw some beautiful sites but the actual colors of Landmannalaugar were sadly under the snow. The problem was that we were charged double for this tour. I believe this was a glitch on their website or booking system but we were charged twice. Despite multiple calls and emails, Try Iceland refused to refund the overcharge. They blamed the "tour operator" but as it was the Try Iceland site that caused the over charge I don't know why they would put the refund on the driver. Sadly, I can't recommend Try Iceland Tours.

          Excellent Tour with Adam
          Our family experience with Try Iceland Tours was excellent from booking to the end of our tour. Kinga was very helpful and responsive to all my questions and booking information. Adam is, absolutely, one of the best guides we've ever had the pleasure to meet. My family of 4 was astounded by all the sites he had shown us. We experienced so many waterfalls and loved our super jeep ride. Adam continually made sure we were comfortable and having a wonderful time. Our tour was about 12 hours and we were able to visit so many places that we would not have seen on our own. By the end of the tour, we felt like great friends. We will definitely Highly recommend to everyone we know. And we will contact Try Iceland Tours next time we visit Reykjavik. Thanks again Adam!

          Amazing tour into the highlands.
          We found the geographic and geological knowledge of Adam to be a wonderful example of his expertise as a guide in the beautiful highlands of Iceland. He had a enthusiastic way of explaining the volcanic areas and enjoyed sharing his love of these unique and rare views with his passengers. We had returned to Iceland to experience this jeep tour with Adam and he didn’t disappoint. We have the most amazing pictures as a memory. Adam was patient, a careful driver, and never in a hurry. The 14 hours flew by and worth every penny.

          Our best day in Iceland and the competition, for that was fierce
          We had an amazing super cheap tour of the valley with south coast. Our guide, Ingimar, was terrific. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and a total pleasure to be with. It was a really fun day. This is a must.

          The best way to hunt Northern lights
          We did the Golden Circle and Northern lights tour. Our guide Adam was amazing. He provided history of each site we visited and tons of information on Iceland. He made the hunting and waiting for the northern lights to appear fun and would not stop until we got a view. Then stopped when we saw them again. By far our favorite excursion during our trip. He even took several photos of us trying to be sure we got an awesome shot.

          Golden Circle and Northern Lights Small Group Tour…absolutely worth it!!!
          I went on the Golden Circle & Northern Lights small group tour on 12/1/22 and it was absolutely amazing! I loved being in a small group of 5 plus our tour guide, Adam, who was great! We started off with the Golden Circle stops followed by dinner at Mika and then went off to find the Aurora. Did we see the Northern Lights? You bet we did! The solar activity was pretty good and Adam got some great pictures of us. Friends of mine opted to take the bus tour instead of this one and their experience left much to be desired and they didn’t see the lights. Instead their bus driver pointed out some of the constellations. I highly recommend this small group tour. If you want to see the lights, you want to be able to go off the beaten path in a small vehicle.

          Adam will work extremely hard to make sure you see Northern Lights!
          We booked a private tour with Adam through Try Iceland Tours and it was an amazing experience! 10 stars out of 5! Adam was an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and hard-working tour guide. We did the Golden Circle and Northern Lights Tour with door to door service from our hotel. Overall, it was about 12 hours, which is extremely good value for what we paid. We started off at Þingvellir, where it was a good balance of guided walking with Adam recounting the location’s history and some time for just our party to explore on our own. The views here were absolutely stunning. The next two stops were close to each other, Geysir & Strokkur and Gullfoss. Both of these showcased the really interesting waterfalls and hydrothermal activity in Iceland’s geography. Beautiful views here as well. All throughout the driving, Adam would recount really interesting tidbits about Iceland’s culture, history, and his own life journey. Once it was evening, we had dinner at a traditional yet upscale Icelandic restaurant. However, the best was saved for last. On this particular night, the forecast for northern lights wasn’t stellar. As the evening got darker, we would see more tour company busses ferrying tourists around for a glimpse of the Northern Lights. However, Adam was confident he knew where the best spot to see the lights were, even if it was going in the opposite direction of the other busses. He used his knowledge of online weather data and Icelandic roads to really find a beautiful spot for the Northern Lights. Adam was driving around several of the spots he knew were best for seeing the northern lights. He worked extremely hard to make sure we wouldn’t go home empty-handed! After about an hour of searching, we struck gold! Adam drove about 45 minutes outside of Reykjavik to make sure we didn’t have any light pollution. And it worked! We finally saw the northern lights we were looking for. He also worked hard to ensure that any pictures we took had perfect lighting, because it is not easy to have the right lighting for both the lights in the background and us in the foreground. Overall it was a really great experience where we learned a lot and saw even more. I can’t recommend Adam more highly and will definitely be booking tours with Try Iceland when I return.

          Golden circle with Northern lights with Adam and tryiceland tours
          We had 3 days of tours with different companies and this one with Adam was by far the best. Adam drove us around in his 4x4 jeep in a small group of 6 to the golden circle with northern lights. Adam was so knowledgable about everything and he was very friendly and fun and made the experience very special. When it was time to see the northern lights he knew exactly where to go off the beaten track, he was in no rush to leave and was determined we were going to see them and he was willing to stay up all night Altho we didn’t have to wait long - Adam took some amazing pics on his camera too I wished the others tours we had were as good I will def recommend him

          Amazing tour in Island
          One week ago we participated in the Landmannalaugar tour with Adam. The tour was amazing and Adam was very polite, reliable and excited about his work and Iceland. He respected all the schedule, and stopped anytime we wanted to take pictures. We had some time to hike in the area and he showed us so many beautiful landscapes. We highly recommend this tour, thank you Adam!

          The only right way to see the South Coast is by booking this tour! Adam is a knowledgeable, kind, and patient guide who gave us an awesome experience.

          Amazing active volcano view
          A lifetime experience!! Seeing a volcano forming and constantly changing is one of the most spectacular things we seen. Adam is an excellent guide and does not hesitate to make the extra mile to ensure everyone goes home with a big smile. The hike to the erruption site was super nice and Adam knew the perfect place to have magnificent views close to the lava field. we could have stayed there for days! Really amazing! All in all, we totally recommend this tour. We only regret we did not have more days to do more tours with them.

        We went with Try Iceland. The host made it such a personal experience. His knowledge and ability to know where and when to divert to when tracking the northern lights with such skill and enthusiasm was incredible. He went way above and beyond to make sure we had the experience of a lifetime. If it costs a bit more than the big coaches, then make savings elsewhere to pay the extra to go with him - I cannot recommend highly enough.

        Usually we are not the tour type of travelers but we are glad to book this tour with Adam! We had an amazing experience and he went above and beyond to make our trip the best experience ever.

        At the beginning it was unsure if we would be able to do the tour because of weather conditions. Adam maintained us informed and we started the tour when the roads were open.

        He did everything possible for us to be on time in the 3 main attractions in the tour and we did it on time! The road was a little bit difficult because of the weather but Adam’s driving skills let us always feel safe. After the golden circle we went for nice dinner and then before chasing the northern lights he recommended to go to a small cabin to enjoy geothermal waters. This was amazing as we had a private hot spring for our selves.

        Finding the northern lights was a bit difficult… we drove for multiple places without success. We are really thankful to Adam that he didn’t desist and just when we were returning to our hotel (way overtime of the time allocated for the tour) he insisted to go to one last place when we were able to watch the Auroras!

        Adam’s explanation about Icelandic culture, nature and the northern lights was on point and kept us entertained for more than 12 hours that we were together.

        He took amazing pictures with his profesional camera for the northern lights! If you visit Iceland I definitely recommend to do a tour with Adam!

        A brilliant trip with our guide Adam who was friendly and knowledgeable and took us to places not accessible on the larger tours. All main sights in the Golden Circle were covered with plenty of time to experience each attraction. Dinner (at own expense) was at a lovely reasonably priced restaurant, before Adam took us to his personally selected vantage point to view the Northern Lights. Although the predicted activity level was low we struck lucky and saw a great light show which was the icing on the cake of a perfect tour! Would highly recommend this tour, especially with Adam as the guide.

        This was one of the best holiday tours we have ever done! Adam couldn’t have been kinder or more welcoming. He really knows his stuff, too! He went above and beyond to make sure we got what we wanted out of the trip and was so accommodating. We had already seen Gullfoss waterfall so he really kindly dropped us at a nearby lagoon which was amazing! His photography skills are an added bonus too - he took some fab pics of us under the Northern Lights! Definitely go on a tour if you can!

        My girlfriend and I went on this tour last Friday. We had Adam as our tour guide and he was absolutely brilliant. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide. He took us everywhere and was very accommodating. Despite the weather not being great for northern lights he went above and beyond for us to eventually find them. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

        We went on the Golden Circle tour and it was great. Adam furnished a lot of local information on the sites we saw. It was cloudy all day and at dinner he reviewed the weather developments and formulated a plan which would allow flexibility to find a hole in the cloud cover. The sky’s cleared during our travels and He drove off the beaten path to limit the light pollution.. We saw the Northern lights and Adam helped with photography. Fantastic Viewing. Other tours canceled that day due to cloudy predictions. Thanks for your optimism and perseverance.

        I absolutely loved my NL tour hosted by Adam. Unlike other big tour companies, he uses his personal super jeep and typically only takes 4-6 people total. During the day we did a tour of Golden Circle which was wonderful and after dinner, we started our hunt around 8pm. He would not give up until we saw them and at the very last minute before we said it was okay to go home, he spotted them right at the coast! Other tour companies cancelled earlier that day and a lot of people ended up going home. It was fantastic, plus he has a professional camera to take photos of you if you want. These were just from my iphone! 100% recommend him and his company! Note: we were supposed to go on Monday but because of the storm he was able to accommodate us for Tuesday afternoon. He will do everything in his power to make sure your trip will happen. Thank you Adam!

        Wow! What an experience! From start to finish Adam gave 100% to ensure we got the most out of the day. We really liked the way the tour was organised as Adam gave us the information we needed and then the opportunity to explore on our own until meeting up at the next pick up point. The sights were truly spectacular on the Golden Circle tour. We had dinner at a lovely local restaurant, all organised by Adam. Then we went on the hunt for the Northern Lights. The forecast was ‘moderate’ so our expectations weren’t too high but Adam used his knowledge & contacts to give us the best possible chance. He was as thrilled as we were when the lights appeared and we experienced their magic. Thanks Adam. Hope to return to join your Highlands tour another time.

        Adam took us to the most beautiful places, He was very knowledgeable about the areas; historical, geological and local landscapes and customs. He was very interesting and informative. He was thoughtful to each and every person on our tour.
        Learning and seeing the world’s oldest parliament location and Iceland’s largest lake as well as Gulfoss Waterfall was incredible. He supplied safety equipment and instruction on how to use it safely for traversing icy trails. Above all he even extended our time to make sure we saw the Northern Lights and took us to multiple locations to get the best viewing. We are soooo happy we took this tour with Adam.

        The sites were amazing and Adam was a great host. This was our only opportunity to see the northern lights while in Iceland, since our tour the night before was canceled due to bad weather. Chasing the northern lights was an adventure! We could see where they were, but had cloud cover so we couldn't see the colors with the naked eye. After staying in one location for awhile, we probably drove over 4 hours to find them. We never did, but it was still a fun experience. Adam was so persistent and did his best. Being in a small vehicle (max 6 people) allowed us to go where others couldn't. We may not being to share our experience about seeing the northern lights, but we have the adventure in traveling for hours without passing a car, stopping in the street (safely) to see where the clouds were moving, and having a guide that didn't want to quit. Adam, thank you for doing all you could and for making chasing the lights that more magical! Hope to see you again!
