Amazing experience on the Salkantay trail. Our guide JJ was awesome, he was extremely knowledgeable, passionate and made sure we had the trip of a lifetime. Amazing views, historical context and perfectly planned trip. The chef Ronaldo was amazing and served restaurant quality 3 course meals even in the middle of nowhere. Great job by the porters and horsemen too, they always had a smile on their face and pulled off amazing feats on transporting everything.

Highly recommended tour, great experience with Carlos the owner too.

We did three consecutive day tours booked with Trex and found their service excellent.
Booking was easy over the internet and we got exactly what was agreed prior to us arriving. The coaches were all excellent and comfortable with safe drivers.Coaches were always on time and we would recommend them to everyone.A special mention to the Erla in the office for the very prompt response to my emails and to Oliver, our guide on the first two days, well done and thanks from Peter

Our pick up was almost half hour late... we were told 8:30 but the driver had other pick ups ahead... we just should have been told an approximate time so would not have been so anxious!
Trim was our driver... he was very informative .
Our first main stop was the Glacier walk.
We thought we were going to be walking ON glacier not CLINMBING a glacier... unfortunately bad knees and asthma made it a tad difficult... description should have been more clear so we would have been prepared! nonetheless it was a wonderful day and had lots of fun!!!
Saw great waterfalls... Icelandic horses (what a treat) beautiful rugged country
A very full 12 hour day!

Choose Reykjavik Excursions over this outfit. Reykjavik Excursions is very reliable and professional and offers all of the same trips.

TREX however is a disaster. I was in Iceland for almost two weeks and heard nothing but nightmare stories about this outfit. This was after I had already booked a trip from Reykjavik to Porsmork. So the bus gets to Hella and the driver fails to mention I am supposed to transfer buses at the stop! So I miss the transfer and end up in Landmannalaugur. Turns out I was the only person on the bus that day going to Porsmork. But the driver must have forgot to make the announcement. Instead of advising me to just wait in Hella for the next bus, he tells me I have to stay with him all the way to Landmannalaugur and back, a totally wasted day.

To make matters worse they refused to offer me a refund, claiming "I didn't hear the announcement" and "all others got to Porsmork that day". I was the only one going to Porsmork on that bus. They want your money. They don't care if you get there or not.

Drivers at Reykjavik Excursions actually count the passengers and make sure everyone is present before leaving and they will be VERY clear about transfer.

After the beautiful but tiring Laugavegur and Fommvirthuhalls trails, we took the bus from Skogar to Reykjavik. Unfortunately, the bus driver told us that the drive would take 8 hours (instead of 2) because there would be a rest stop between 11 am and 5 pm to wait on passengers from another bus. He offered us an alternative, which was to pay about 25 euros per person to take a public bus from the rest stop. Quite a disappointment when we are longing to be back in the city center to continue our itinerary.. If we didn’t pay for the public bus, we would’ve missed our car rental. Too bad we weren’t warned before hand.

I have cancelled my booking many days prior to my trip in last july and it still got no answer or refund for this. Even after many emails asking for an update about my refund, understanding that COVID probably gives them many cancellation issues, i still have no answers. Really not professionnal.

The organization was really bad, on the way from hella to landmannalaugar the split me and my wife on two buses because the didn't have enough seats. On the way back they canceled the 16,30 bus without contacting us (they had email and number), with the official motivation that a bus broke down, more probably they considered it was more convenient to move the few people scheduled at 16,30 to the next bus. Even so, we risked to remain in landmannalaugar because maybe the following bus was full. Upon request, they refused any reimbursement. Chiuse another more reliable company.

On our journey through Island, we also planned a trip with Trex and booked the bus tour in advance. Because of sickness we were not able to do the trip and canceled it days before it should start. Trex offers to refund the booking costs, if the trip is canceled at least 24 hours prior to the department. Despite multiple requests we didn't get any answer and no money back.

We were looking for a way to access the trail heads to Thorsmork, since the roads cannot be traversed by regular drive cars. We booked bus access through Trex. We met the bus at the Seljalandsfoss parking lot, and hopped on the bus. The ride to the trailheads crossed numerous glacier runoff streams, some shallow and some which would have flooded a car engine. The bus driver was cautious but direct, and took around an hour each way.

The hiking at Thorsmork was incredible, with well-marked trails and super-helpful staff at the trail head visitor center. This was the highlight of our trip and Trex was an indispensable part of the experience.

It's always been a dream of mine to see the Northern Lights. We got lucky that we got a clear night with some activity.

The tour was great. They picked us up from our hotel, drove about an hour away to a very dark area. We were given blankets as it was VERY cold out and waited for the lights. We happened to have an astronomer with us that night so as we waited he told us about the different constellations. We waited almost 2 hours but no lights. We were almost about to have the bus leave, but then the lights started peeping their way out. I was thrilled! I'm glad the driver and guide allowed us to stay longer than normal so we could finally see them!

I really loved that they had someone there taking pictures on a professional camera so that even if you didnt have a camera or phone that could capture the lights, they would take your picture with them and emailed them out the next day. Nice above and beyond touch.
