Hi Ymir, I have been attempting to email you, but Microsoft Outlook says that email box does not exist! My husband and I are interested in a possible Golden Circle Tour (and perhaps a city tour as well). We are considering either the last week in September or the second week in October of this year. Do you have availability, and is there another way to contact you? Thanks, Peggy
