This was the absolute worst service. We paid for 3 tickets for the bus to transport us to the airport. They said the picking up time was between 13:30 and 14:00. From 13:48 till 14:15 we've been calling them and asking about when the bus will come and they keep stalling. We ended up ordering a cab as we almost... More

We booked with these to do a northern lights tour- unfortunately the first night it was cancelled due to weather. We rebooked with ease for the next evening. We heard that there was 1300 people going out to try and find the northern lights that night. If I'm honest I was a bit disappointed to hear that. We ended up... More

Had two trips booked with this company. One was the Golden Circle and the other was The Northern Lights. The Golden Circle was fine and in spite of very poor weather the guide and driver did everything to give a good trip. With regard to the Northern Lights, now I know it is a bit hit and miss with the... More

We booked and paid for a Southern Coast Tour of Iceland with Reykjavik Excursions on Viator.com and were extremely disappointed with the service we received. Our mini bus was supposed to collect us from our hotel between 8 and 9am. We waited in the freezing cold from 8 until 9 and no bus showed up. When we rang Reykjavik Excursions,... More

We loved the Golden Circle Tour! We saw so many incredible terrains, we stopped at Fridheimer, a geothermal tomato farm that served the best bread and the freshest bloody marys I have ever had, and we got to watch a geysir explode up-close. It snowed on and off during our tour (we were there during the dead of winter), but... More

Poorly organized. Was there for 6 days and never saw the northern lights. It was a 6/10 which is supposed to be a great chance of seeing the lights and it still didn't happen.

We booked our northern lights tour the fist night we arrived to Iceland. We speak Spanish as a mother language but English as well. So we expected an English tour. As a very good surprise they had a Spanish guy for Spanish people who booked the tour, so we took a different bus with the Spanish speaking people and it... More

We used Reykjavik Excursions for a golden circle tour, northern lights hunt, into and above the glacier tour on our recent trip, as well as airport transfers. Vehicles always clean, on time and with friendly drivers and knowledgeable guides. Print out your tickets in advance - don't just rely on having it electronically on your phone, as the drivers /...

This excursion company is brilliant. Did the blue lagoon, fly bus and northern lights with them. Buses were always on time with good pick ups and drop offs at the hotel spot on. Good communication via email if you book direct. There is some bad press on here and Facebook and I really cannot see why. We were in Reykjavik... More
