We would usually organise our own driving holidays which we’ve done all over the world. But due to Covid and the uncertainty around travelling abroad we opted to book a staycation and let a travel company do all the heavy lifting and organise the trip for us as we left it quite late to book our holiday (less than 1 week in advance). We chose Nordic Visitor as they had received really positive reviews for their trips to Iceland but there wasn’t much on their tours elsewhere, particularly Scotland, so we had some minor reservations. However, our experience was fantastic, Nordic were great, they organised an excellent Scottish Highlands and Isle of Sky driving holiday for us. From start to finish they were flexible about the dates, happy to reorganise locations (due to Covid fears) and our own personal preference. We started and ended our tour in Edinburgh, where we stayed for 2 nights at the Ibis Hotel (pretty decent) and in a really good central location. From there we picked up our travel guide, map and other papers for the rest of our 10 day trip. The travel guide was sent electronically too in advance and had helpful suggestions about what we could do in each location including whether we needed to book any activities in advance due to Covid. We picked up our car on day 2, here we encountered a couple of issues (we needed proof of address and NI number) but with support from Nordic this was all resolved and we were able to start the next phase of our trip. The car was excellent and an upgrade from what we had initially booked (brand new out of the box SUV). Nordic even asked the host of our next b&b in Inverness to give us a bottle of Prosecco, card and box of milk tray to apologise for the issues we had encountered ahead of picking up our car. All the b&b’s booked by Nordic were excellent and of a very high standard, in great locations, with excellent breakfast included, and all en suite. We couldn’t have booked better accommodation ourselves. Overall we were very impressed with Nordic’s customer service, the itinerary they had put together for our trip, car we received, and the quality of accommodation booked on our behalf. We would definitely consider booking another trip through Nordic again, we’ve already been to Iceland but if we hadn’t this would be the company we’d use. I only hope they remain afloat during these tough times for the travel industry.

This was our first trip to Iceland, but it won't be our last!! Nordic Visitor Tours was the first place that popped up when I searched google. Good thing! They were very attentive to our every whim. Alex was extremely helpful. Answering every question and email very quickly! Our hotel was right in downtown Reykjavik! We missed the Northern Lights tour, but the lights were "off" when we went. The weather was too bad for us to go. I slipped on ice (who knew there was ice in Iceland in January! LOL) and turned out I broke my ankle the first 5 minutes we were there. Therefore, I could not go on the walking tour (which is what I really wanted to do). I hobbled the rest of the trip. We did get to go to the Blue Lagoon as well. Great if you like Hot Springs! The Main Event was the 8 hour" Jeep" ride up the volcano. OMG!!! IT WAS AWESOME! We had to come back early because of white out driving conditions. I know that Nordic Visitor works with all these different companies to make sure everything is done on time and to extraordinary service levels, and they are right! We will definitely be back again and will defintely use Nordic Visitor!

We've recently returned from a trip around Iceland which we booked with Nordic Visitor. We booked the holiday pre-Covid and for a while doubted we would be able to go. Our contact at Nordic visitor remained positive and helpful during this period and it was a great relief when we were fortunate enough to go. Nordic Visitor went above and beyond what we could have expected in terms of contact during the holiday, and went to great lengths to tailor-made a specific trip for us, focusing on our interests and aims. The quality of the accommodation booked for us was generally excellent and the map/trip notes were very helpful. All in all, we would wholeheartedly recommend Iceland as a great destination and Nordic Visitor as a specialist tour company for this part of the world.

We loved exploring the West Fjords and the north of Iceland; saw whales in the fjords, seals basking and puffins doing puffin things. Our advisor, Perle gave us suggestions and though we added days, changed our mind on some of the accommodation and were generally picky about our needs; we were given terrific help and always with good humour. We stayed for 10 days and it was not long enough. We would certainly use them again.

We had a Golden circle trip in the middle of July with Nordic Visitors. We really wanted to have a vacation, after all these months of isolation. And we were afraid to travel in terms of constant changes in rules, flights cancelations, etc. We used to organize trips ourselves, but now it was pretty risky (and time consuming of cause :) Somehow we found the Nordic Visitors offer and this was just what we needed. They covered risks and that was very important for me, going vacation and be less stressed because of Corona, this is what I really appreciate. They also covered covid test costs for us. Our original flight was canceled and we had to get another one, so they helped to reschedule transfer from airport and answered very fast. They provide us with all instructions and directions, so we had a bunch of options what and where to do, and all tips were excellent. Usually I know pretty well what to expect and read a lot before a trip, this time we had a room to be surprised. Every evening before the next day of the trip I opened papers from them, learn what to expect tomorrow and plan the next day according to their tips and instructions. They provided all materials in advance, but this time I really wanted to e surprised and did work very well. They picked up for us all hotels, some of them were simply nice, some of them were really fancy with amazing view and service. We got several custom options, we got whale watching tour and natural bath. So this tour was very comfortable and the service overall is simply excellent. We fall in love with Iceland. And going come back in winter time for sure with their help. Overall the trip exceeded our expectations, many many thanks to Silja our travel agent and Nordic Visitors
