“Loved It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

My friends and I signed up for a two-day private tour and Jonas was our tour guide. He brought us to ice caves, lava fields, waterfalls, hot springs, and glaciers. He knows anything and everything about Iceland so ask away! It's pricey but well worth it. You won't be disappointed.

“"Golden (Circle) Tour perfectly describes our private tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

When booking we wondered if this tour would be worth the price but it was so worth it. Four of us had the vehicle and guide, Teitur, to ourselves. Teitur told stories and gave a commentary all day. We visited the usual sites on a Golden Circle Tour but without the crowds as we avoided the times of the bus tours. Added to this were lovely stops in out of the way places to look at ponies, rivers and other views. The highlight for me was sitting in a geothermal pool surrounded by mountain views which made the quick dash in biting cold wind worth it. Off roading in the snow and ice was also fun.
GoEcco know their business well and offer an excellent service and experience. Worth every krona.

“You get what you pay for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

I went on the Glacial Lagoon Tour in late August 2013, and it was one of the absolute coolest days of my life. Yes, this tour is pricier than most other tours, but after going on other Iceland tours, I can definitely say that with GoEcco, you get more than what you pay for. From the start, this team was so helpful. I had trouble with paying through paypal, and Christina walked me through everything via email! We were able to figure out that I could pay via cash once I got to Iceland.
The tour itself was AMAZING from start to finish. Our guide was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. He was so funny, and most importantly, so engaged and excited in what he was doing. We had a "large" group of about 7 people, and it was the perfect size. We all got to know each other and interact, and in our van, it felt like we were going on a family vacation through paradise. Because of the van, we were able to stop and do "family vacation" type activities like feeding Icelandic horses, hiking up to a pool, sitting in a mossy lava field, and walking on a glacier. At the end of the day, we were all exhausted in the most wonderful way.
This tour was perfect for me! I was a 22 year old woman traveling by myself, and I always felt safe, but also challenged. I'm a California girl, and I was SO COLD in Iceland, but the small group allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and embrace the beauty of the cold- sitting in the warm car during activities is NOT optional gurlfriend ;) .
You can't put a price on the perfect day, but at GoEcco, they've tried, and I can say without a doubt that it is a bargain.

“Iceland the only way to see it !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

This trip with Jonas was mind blowing. We saw waterfalls you could stand in front of, walk behind or just gaze at the rainbows that form below . Every corner we turned was a delight 8 of us with fixed smiles on our faces. The hot pool between the rocks and the river, Reynisfjara beach. The bat cave, the Viking hut ...what more could you ask for. I'll be back to do the White Night Hike and more but only with Jonas and his team . Fantastic. Takk

“The White Night Hiking is a must do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

The White Night Hiking was one of the highlights of my 14 days trip do Iceland! It was above my expectations! The trail is easy, very beutiful and unique, with a lot of hot spots and steam, and a hot river bathing at the end, where we had some nice sandwiches and beers. Our guide, Titur, was extremely friendly and enthusiastic, and gave us a lot of information of so many aspects of Icelandic culture, environment, politics and general stuff! I definitely recomend this tour, it was a really nice experience! I will come back to Iceland, and will surely do another tour with Goecco!
