“The Highlight of our 5 days in Iceland”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

I will not repeat what others have said here but the Jeep Tour was the best. We had the Jeep all to ourselves..5 of us: Husband/Wife and three grown kids. Our guide could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable! We spent the whole day seeing the beautiful countryside. The next day we rented a car and were on our own and Oh, how we missed our Mountain Taxi guide. I would love to go back and do it again in Winter!

“The absolute highlight of our trip to Iceland”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

In a country with landscapes this awe inspiring and with a cultural history to equal it's jaw-dropping geology, you need a tour guide who can do it all justice. Our group of five adults could not have been in better hands. At the booking stage we found the website gave all the information we needed to confidently choose the right tour for us. The payment process was clear and straight forward. We spoke to Björk over the phone and she was polite and helpful. On the day of our tour, Omar, our guide was ready and waiting in the most amazing customised all terrain vehicle. Omar is a gifted story teller, extremely knowledgeable and informative about his homeland and it's people, good humoured and made us all feel very well looked after. We took the most popular tour of The Golden Circle and despite many years taking visitors on this well trodden but fascinating path, Omar was not only endlessly enthusiastic, but also, patient with all our questions and indulgent of our constant requests that he use our cameras to photograph us in front of the incredible waterfalls, rocks and snow. It may seem like a lot of money, but in our view, it was money well spent. We were fortunate to be in Iceland before the main tourist season in July and August, when some stops on the tour (the geysers for example) can get busy, apparently. We also enjoyed amazing weather, dry, cold and sunny.

“Super jeep with heli ride-superb”
Reviewed December 23, 2011

Valdimar was a great guide and we took his super jeep up into the mountains outside Reykjavik. We met the heli on a mountain top and shot around the mountains - a full on roller coaster ride. Only 20 mins and expensive but a real experience, Then it was back in the jeep and across rivers and snow covered terrain, A superb trip made better by a very knowledgeable and amusing guide

“Great choice!”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

I wanted to go on a jeep tour while in Reykjavik. My hotel recommended this one, and it turned out to be a great experience. I chose the South Shore adventure, which was incredibly beautiful. Oskar was a great guide! I was amazed at his patience with a couple of very difficult customers. It's a little pricey but worth seeing Iceland this way at least once.

“No Contest - The Only Company to Choose!”
Reviewed June 21, 2011

I've been on Mountain Taxi trips for 4 years in a row, every summer, all at least a week long, and several of them entirely custom for our group. The guides are incredible, multi-lingual, incredible knowledgeable about Iceland's history and geology. They are well traveled themselves and service is very important to them. I've done tours with other companies in Iceland and kept going back to Mountain Taxi. The vehicles are cleaner and more comfortable and the guides more engaging. My only complaint is that I've not been in the winter, I'm working on it!
