“Amazing Iceland”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We booked 3 tours with Reykjavik excursions (the blue lagoon, the golden circle with skidooing and the northern lights). Each time the coach arrived exactly on time, the drivers were friendly and helpful and the guides knowledgeable and enthusiastic (particularly Marta on the northern lights tour - 22.02.14)

We also booked the flybus which again ran exactly to schedule.

I cannot recommend Reykjavik Excursions highly enough, they added to the magic of our holiday in Iceland

Go on - book!!!!

“Recommended. Tours and transfers run like clockwork.”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We used Reykjavik Excursions for the following:

Flybus transfers to and from out hotel to Keflavic airport (this is very efficient, almost as good as a taxi but significantly cheaper!)

The Golden Circle Tour (Geysir, Gullfos waterfall, Þingvellir, and a geothermally heated hydroponic greenhouse) - The two food stops on this bit were too busy and had very long lines. Not really RE fault though.

A Whale watching trip (with Elding Whale Watching - we got too see Humpback Whales) - Beware this trip can be much longer than the time stated.

The Blue Lagoon

We had a Northern Lights tour booked too, but unfortunately the weather was not kind to us so it was cancelled.

All pick ups were on time (often using a minibus to transfer you to the coach), our tour guides friendly and knowledgeable, the coaches were driven well and comfortable.

You may have to swap your printed out itinerary for tickets at the bus station / airport, other times your printed out itinerary is accepted on the bus. we were very glad we were shown right onto the bus without having to pick up tickets in the ticket office as the line was going to be very long otherwise!

The hotels in Reykjavik seem to have a very good working relationship with this company and are very good at arranging trips and pick ups, also knowing when the trips are cancelled due to adverse weather.

This company is definitely my first choice when in Iceland now. They obviously a very well established company who know what they are doing and do it well.

“Organised, no problems!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We used Reykjavik excursions 5 times: Blue Lagoon & airport transfer, Take a walk on the ice side, Lava tour (horse riding), Northern Lights tour and for our transfer back to the airport. The bus was never late and it everything ran very smoothly. Bus drivers were polite and knowledgeable. Once they arrived a few minutes earlier than pick-up & had drove off without us so I rang up and within 10 minutes the driver was back to pick us up. I very highly recommend this company.

“Pamper yourself and your skin”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

I highly recommend this lagoon.
Blue Lagoon offers clean showers and facilities. The water smells sulfurous, but is milky and very warm, so you know you are experiencing the real thing. I recommend rubbing the white mud over your face and body to exfoliate. Also, buy creams and soaps at the airport shop for great gifts for any women friends and family in your life.
Unfortunately, if you visit in winter, the air temp is 0 Celsius but the water is at body temperature. It's freezing once you leave the water.

Reykjavik Excursions is a very efficient and friendly operator of tours and shuttle buses.

“Very well organised, First class”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

We took the flybus from Keflavik airport to our hotel which was very easy, they transfer you onto minibuses which drop you off at your hotel and again used them on our return to the airport.

We took a couple of tours with Reyjavk excursions the northern lights tour on the 15th of February 2014 (coach number 6) was great the guide on the tour was very informative and yes we saw the lights which was a massive bonus!

We also took a tour to the Geysirs, Gullfoss waterfall and the Thingvellir national park and again the guide (Martha) was very informative.

This is a very well run company and we would definately use them again when we travel back to Iceland.

Thank you for some fantastic excursions.
