Firstly I should mention we didn't book directly with Eskimos, rather they were the local company used by an intermediary. However, when we go back we will go directly to Eskimos without hesitation! The itinerary was excellent, our guide was unbelievably fantastic and the whole trip was unforgettable. We had a couple of issuer-ettes on our 9-day trip, but our guide resolved everything with Eskimos including some on the fly changes without us really getting involved - all went to make our trip better, easier, more enjoyable and relaxing.

I just came back from a 2-day South Coast private tour with Eskimos, along with 3 of my friends. Sebastien (from Eskimos) was great about customizing a tour that met our sightseeing and financial needs. Our tour guide, Jon, was fantastic! He took us to all of the places we asked to see, as well as some other "hidden gems" that he thought would be worthwhile. He provided us with so much cultural and historical information we wouldn't have otherwise gotten and he was extremely personable, professional and fun to be around. Our trip duration in Iceland was 10 days, and our South Coast tour was definitely the highlight! Thank you!

From the moment I initiated contact with Eskimos, they were professional, super responsive, and just plain amazing. Fantastic hotel choice, wonderful restaurant bookings, great tour selections. Their allocation of our budget was the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation for a 4-day romantic vacation - snowmobiling, horseback riding, Blue Lagoon Retreat Spa, lavish tasting menus. Cannot thank Sally Kopp and Agnes enough for all their efforts! We will be recommending Eskimos to friends/family!! xoxo

We had a 7-day itinerary booked via Scott Dunn with Eskimos. Our tour guide and driver was Gisli, who started with us from the moment we touched down at Keflavik until he dropped us off for our departure. Scott Dunn had recommended that we go with a private guided tour approach for Iceland and this worked out perfectly. Being with the same guide for so long can turn out to be really good or bad depending on the chemistry between the guide and the group. In this case, it was super great awesome (I ran out of positive words). I think Gisli gave some input on the proposed schedule several weeks before we arrived and his suggestions were very good. During the actual tour, we also had ongoing discussions about shfiting around some itineraries and, all throughout such discussions, Gisli gave very sound advice without being forceful. We soon learned that any muted suggestions he gave -- "you might want to take that walk from Arnastapi to Hellnar, if you want..." -- are very good suggestions and you should take them up. I don't want to give away what we saw because the attraction of Iceland is really the initial moment - the first time you see the landscape, geyser, the sky and so on. But please seriously consider Eskimos as a thorughly professional and caring outfit and clearly a very good choice if you are thinking of a private tour of Iceland.

We were looking for a private 7 day tour of Iceland for our family of 7. Having limited time, we concentrated on southern Iceland, the Golden Circle, and Thorsmork. We booked our travel through Jacada Travel and Eskimos is their partner in Iceland. Once we landed, we were immediately picked up in a luxurious Mercedes van by Ragnar, our guide for the next 4 days. In short, Ragnar was absolutely amazing. He quickly learned our desire to see and do as much as possible in the time we had and he did not disappoint. In Reykjavik, we were treated to a walking tour through the city with a lot of explanations, stories, etc., from Ragnar. He was obviously very knowledgeable and had many stories to share. We had also opted for a “foodie tour” and Ragnar took us to several restaurants for a taste of traditional Icelandic dishes. All were excellent (although some of us may disagree as far as the fermented shark and dried fish jerky are concerned!). After two days in Reykjavik, we departed for the countryside in southern Iceland. Again, Ragnar was an amazing guide, showing us so many beautiful sites (glaciers, glacier lagoons, waterfalls, volcanos, etc.), and spending much more time with us than he was obligated to do. Two of our days wound up being 12 hour days and we were thankful for Ragnar’s desire to spend so much time with us. After Ragnar’s time with us, Omar spent two days with us, touring in a heavily modified and luxurious 4x4. This enabled us to visit many sites that would be impossible with a typical vehicle. Omar was also a fantastic guide, so knowledgeable in Icelandic history and culture. In addition to visiting Geysir and the many sites of the Golden Circle, Omar took us to our glacier snowmobiling excursion. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The experience of being on top of a mountain on top of a glacier, with the panoramic 360 degree views, was amazing. We all said we would like to do this again someday. Thorsmork was a rugged mountain ridge and valley that is best explored by 4x4. Omar was a great guide here, showing us many sites and leading us on hikes through the remnants of glacier lakes, glaciers, waterfalls, and the like. When the time came for us to leave for the airport for our trip home, Ragnar picked us up and made sure we were delivered to KEF on time. It’s hard to imagine we could have enjoyed our time in Iceland more and Eskimos did a fantastic job!
