    Amazing ride despite the very rough waters and cold. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and the whales. We saw at least 8 humpbacks and some very close to us. I highly recommend.

    Had a fantastic trip. Beautiful scenery and saw a couple of Humpbacks and a
    Northern Bottle-nose Whale. Guide was very knowledgeable and the boat was comfortable with hot drinks and a warm indoor area. Highly recommended.

    Our whole experience was beautiful starting with Rosa an excellent greeter (when we first arrived). She rescused us from what seemed so overwhelming. Her personality & sharp listening skills made us feel relaxed and cared for. She definitely set the stage for a comfortable, well informed trip and pleasant atmosphere. All her tips and how to's gave us the tools we needed to fully enjoy ourselves. Others that treated us like royalty were in house greeters Antonia & DeVonte. Everyday we went to the club we felt extra special. I am so sorry I can't remember one housekeeper staff's name that lady clean our room with such excellence & attention to detail not to mention tender love we had to leave her something at the front desk because she was off the next day we were leaving. Others were good but she took it to another level. I see if can find the paper I wrote her name on. GREAT JOB WESTGATE STAFF! GREAT JOB!

    Wonderful trip exceeding all my expectations. Well-paced tour around the island, stunning scenery, nice accommodation, entertaining information and great food. Vjeran, our outstanding tour guide (and excellent driver!!) did a great job in harsh winter weather conditions.

    The whale watching trip was some 3hours and we saw some whales.
    The guide told us alot about the sealife here. Boat was good. They told us there were some blankets, raincoats and overalls, but we found them a bit too late. It was really cold.
    Over all the experiense was good.

    This tour must have been extended now as our's was 10 days/11nights. Still it was the best I have ever been on. It was pretty 'full on' time-wise with so much to see in the 10 days so I'm glad they have added an extra day or so. Magnificent scenery: jaw-droppingly huge waterfalls, mountains and landscapes showcasing Mother Nature's awe-inspiring vastness. Many, many fabulous experiences: a boat ride among massive icebergs, a luxurious spa in a hot-spring plus being up close and personal with masses of puffins to name only a few. All this as well as excellent food and accommodation.
    Our Guide/Driver Martina was an encyclopedia of knowledge whether it was mythology and culture, the geology and geography of Iceland or just day to day life. She transported us around this amazing country sprouting facts and figures mixed with the perfect blend of humour and warmth of personality.
    Her number one priority of course was always our safety and comfort and this was conveyed in the way she kept an eye on every individual during our 'stops' and was particularly mindful of those who were not as robust as the rest of us. Additional to this was her extraordinary skill as a driver, particularly on some of the hazardous roads.
    I genuinely feel we had THE BEST OF THE BEST and would highly recommend this company for this tour.

    I spent such a great moment surrounded by nature, we saw four whales, from really close. And I also loved to be in the fast boat, jumping the waves. The guide was really good.

    Said with a glistening smile and in my best Charlie’s Angels tonality🤩

    As an avid solo traveling female on the hunt for her next adventure destination, I turned to my favorite platform, TourRadar.

    After 2 years of being grounded during the pandemic (and being a responsible member of society for the duration) I willingly gave into the pull of travel this Holiday season. And began planning where I’d like to go.

    Scouting out several small group tour options for my chosen destination of Iceland, I’d whittled it down to three options. After comparing the routes for overlap amongst other things, it came down to Charlie. Why? Let me explain ☺️

    #BecauseAdventure! Charlie’s tour is thoughtfully comprised of the popular and not so popular routes in this, the land of fire and ice. As a solo traveler, his small group tour was exactly what I was looking for in regards to keeping myself safe while traveling during a pandemic.

    With more than two weeks available for my winter vacation, I wanted to see as much of the arctic wonderland as possible. But didn’t want to deal w the hassle of renting and driving a car. Queue Charlie and his brilliant team😃

    With organized tours such as the 9-day Iceland Adventure with Charlie The Traveler the work is done for me. Save for the hotels that is. But being responsible for my own accommodations wasn’t a challenge in the slightest. Charlie provided a couple of options, taking care to recommend places in or near the city center for seamless pick ups and drop offs for the planned tour(s).

    Once the tour is solidified, Charlie’s team of professionals take the reigns of communication. An in-country concierge is appointed and any and all questions one has (at any time of the night I might add) was answered w grace and hospitality. Vouchers and a detailed itinerary were also provided. This concierge (Marius) was brilliant and worked diligently to reschedule any canceled tours (as result of weather) and even suggested activities in or around the towns I’d be staying in for the duration of the trip. Having extended my stay in Reykjavik a healthy handful of extra days helped make these reschedules possible👍🏾👍🏾

    Shamelessly name dropping while out and about, it was evident how well known Charlie was on the island, which only served to give me more comfort. Trust Charlie & his staffers to provide you with a memorable adventure no matter which destination you choose. But I can personally give the 9-day Iceland Tour two giant thumbs up 👍🏾👍🏾 And promise that Charlie MORE THAN delivers what is advertised 😄

    Where will CTT adventure will I explore next? Stay tuned 😉 #whereintheworld @baglady.meredith.sandiego
