It was a great trip and truly an amazing experience seeing all the ice sculptures and I was surprised to see just how big the cave was!

I just reread the advertisement for this tour. We booked because we were particularly interested in seeing Hrisey Island. We took the ferry there, walked about two blocks to the house where we had some food samples and then walked back to the ferry. We saw NOTHING else of the island and were, consequently, quite disappointed. The brewery and salted... More

The Golden Circle drive with Saga was the highlight of our trip to Iceland. The driver was friendly and very informative. We paid a little extra and did the trip in a smaller car instead of riding the bigger tour bus with lots of other people. Paying that little extra was the best money we spent and gave us a... More

I went together with my sister at the cave exploration and it was lots of fun! The guide was really good at telling stories and explaining what are the 'rules', plus also funny! Along the way to the cave there is a beautiful scenery and the cave itself is a natural wonder. If you go at the end of summer... More

This is the only company you can use to visit the ice cave in the area and it is so worth it. The tour company in general is fantastic and very professional. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and fun. He had great stories about the cave and iceland it's self. We would definitely use this company again.

Our tour covered a variety of landscapes from Goðafoss waterfall to Lake Mývatn to the lava formations of Dimmuborgir to the thermal field (boiling mud pools, steaming fumaroles and sulphur pits) of Hverir, ably led by Fia, our guide. Informative and pleasant. We would not hesitate to book another tour with Saga Travel. Thanks Fia (and thanks too for the... More

We (a couple in our 70s) used Saga for our 8-day trip around Iceland (with a private guide). What a wonderful itinerary they developed! Glacial walks, rafting, local cuisine and microbrewery tour, whale watching, Northern Lights, waterfalls, historic sights....and thousands of miles around Iceland. The accommodations were excellent. The scenery is fabulous, the history fascinating, the food delicious. Also, during... More

My husband & I highly recommend the day tour to Askja, our guide Bo was excellent with his knowledge of the area and also made the 12 hour day very entertaining. Great way to see a part of the highlands/interior of Iceland.

My husband Ted and I feel the tour of Iceland exceeded our expectations. Our guide Þórður was very in tune with what interested us. He knew we liked art and went out of his way to let us meet and see the work of local artists. He shared interesting stories from his own life at various locations which made the... More

Saga travel was super easy to work with. Accommodations were booked, horses were ready and saddled up when we arrived, and we enjoyed about a 2 hour ride along the bay and up into the hills. What an amazing day. Would re-book with them every time.
