We booked to go on the Thursday we arrived in Reykjavik but received a text to say that the tour was cancelled due to cloudy conditions-gutted-this was why we'd come to Iceland!!!
However, we were automatically booked on the next nights tour. Picked up on time by 'Dooley' in an American minivan on time and paid there and then. We drove for about an hour out of town and all looked lost until we got to Whale Bay (Hvalfjordur) and the Lights came out-2 shows of about 15 minutes each. Amazing to see. A tip though-wrap up as it gets very cold standing outside in minus temperatures!!
Obviously seeing them isn't guaranteed but if they're out then these guys will take you to the best places to see them! The only very minor criticism was that those in the back struggled to hear our guides commentary-speak up Dooley!!!

We did a good NL trip with these guys in a group of 8 in a minivan. The guide gave us some random facts on route. Bit odd?
However the tour was good and we saw the lights - bonus!
All in all good value considering the size of the group, we were out for ~4hrs.

The tour guides are very friendly and showed up on time. They gave us very detail history on most of the landscapes that we passed. Price wise is reasonable

Went out with GTI on 01/03/13 and 03/0313 for northern lights tours. Small mini-bus tours, much better than the big coach companies who send out numerous buses, all to the same place. We were away from the hoards and both guides were very informative and just as excited as us when the lights appeared. An educational and enjoyable experience. Book your northern lights tour with GTI and you'll have a great time.

Just returned from an amazing experience with GTI . I emailed Bob Murray a few months before we went & asked for a package to be put together as we were only there four days so didn't want to waste precious time. We were so lucky to see a wonderful Northern Lights display on our first night as Ottur Erickson took us further north after a weak display to experience my lifelong dream!. Ottur was full of interesting facts and anecdotes . Guides were fantastic & so passionate & knowledgable , Golden Circle was fabulous and the Reykjanes & Blue Lagoon all amazing . There was a hiccup with one of our bookings & one call to Bob & it was all sorted immediately & we went out with Baldur the next day , just the three of us , Baldur , my son & me which was fab to feel the vastness & beauty of Iceland. I would recommend GTI to anyone wanting a perfect tour . Value for money excellent also I thought the total price was for each of us at first which was a lovely surprise when it was for both me and my son . Faultless service and can't praise them enough .
