“Absolutely bloody brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

We love Eskimos!
My husband and I booked golden circle, dog sledding, snow mobiling, jokulsarlon and quad biking with Eskimos. A lovely lady called Thora was extremely helpful and very easy to talk to. She was always keen to answer any questions. Einar also sorted some things out for us and he was so kind, and really went out of his way. We had a super cool guide called Tristan. He was not only extremely knowledgeable about Iceland, but knew a lot about everything else. He was stacks of fun, great laugh and dead easy to talk to. We loved him!!!! If he ends up being your tour guide, please say a big Hi from us. We are hoping to go and see the northern lights, and will definitely book with Eskimos. Their customer service is outstanding, excellent. Eskimos rock Iceland!

“Eskimos - dog sledding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

We had a fantastic time on our dog sledding tour. We loved our tour guide. He was on time, knew all sorts of interesting facts about Iceland and was generally fun to be around. He was also a very good and safe driver which was much appreciated (we've had drivers in the past that were rude, scary and reckless!). The dog sledding itself was even better than I could have imagined. The glacier was gorgeous, the gentlemen out there were kind and patient and the dogs were so loveable. The whole day was absolutely perfect. I would not have changed a thing.

“Private Golden Circle Tour - Legendary!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

We booked our private Golden Circle tour for 4 with a snowmobiling add-on through Eskimo as they were able to offer the best pricing. From Day 1, everyone at Eskimo was extremely responsive and did not hesitate to answer my 1000+1 questions about the trip. Due to some e-mail confusion, Eskimo did not have us confirmed on the day of the trip... but no problem! Not only did they correct this immediately, but they also upgraded us to a Super Jeep for the entire trip for free. That was a major perk.

Jonas was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He gave us all the information we wanted, but also knew when we wanted to have our own private conversations and let us chat. The trip itself was unforgettable - we saw some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Beyond the waterfall, the geysers and the lava fields, a real highlight was being able to drink from a stream without sterilizing or filtering the water. This sounds crazy but I assure you, it's delicious and unmatched. If you have the opportunity to do this, DO IT! And go through Eskimo tours. You will not be disappointed.

“Eskimos Iceland - Blue Ice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

I had an absolutely amazing time. I really could not have asked for more. The glacier was beautiful and it was incredible to be able to try climbing part of the ice wall as well. Our guide was friendly, very smart, and did a really fantastic job. The waterfall was stunning. Even the lunch provided was delicious. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the trip. Thank you so much for making my stay in Iceland such a memorable trip!

“Only Use Eskimos if going to Iceland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

I had to arrange a large bachelor party in Iceland and there were lots of companies to choose from but hands down use Eskimos.

Einar/Jean and their entire staff made incredible efforts to help accomodate our group even on such short notice (less than 3 days!). We were able to do Ice Climbing, Caving, Blue Lagoon, Snowmobiling, all in a span of a few days and even succeeded to get great weather while out there.

Both the tour guides and the office staff were incredibly considerate of our questions in advance, and even went the extra mile to accomodate some of the guys who forgot to appropriately pack proper shoes.

One piece of advice - bring a cell phone you can use while in Iceland. Having my int'l plan switched on did cost slightly more but made a SIGNIFICANT difference in managing the booking and plans while there locally. Don't cheap out on the int'l plan to save the $50, you may end up spending 5X more booking with more expensive providers.

Thanks again for the great tours!
