“Friendly service & excellent tour”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We did the husky dog riding with Eskimo and from booking through to the tour they were very helpful & accommodating. Bad weather meant that we weren't able to do the tour on the night we originally booked but Eskimo helped us rearrange on another suitable date without any hassle. The driver who took us there and back was also very helpful and friendly, stopping at interesting points on the way and to see if we could see the northern lights.

If you're able to drive it's definitely possible to do the trips slightly cheaper, but If you're looking to do something special and don't want to drive, this lot definitely won't let you down.

“Wonderful Day Trip with the Huskies!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

My husband and I took a day-trip out to have a dogsled tour while we were on our honeymoon. The pre-trip communication from Eskimos Day Tours was excellent - we were told early on that due to the lack of snow in October, the tour would be done on a trolley instead of a sled, which was fine with us - but we did appreciate the notification. Also, once we arrived, our trip was initially cancelled/delayed due to the dogsled guides both being sick. Again, Eskimos Day Tours did a fantastic job of keeping in touch about the changes and we were easily able to reschedule for another day. (They also offered a refund if rescheduling wouldn't work for us.) We were so glad we were still able to go. The guides were all very knowledgeable and friendly and the dogs were adorable. We had a wonderful day. Highly recommended experience. Food is not provided on this trip, by the way, but we asked our driver to stop by a gas station so we could get some sandwiches and that was no problem.

Thanks guys you were top class

“Eskimos made our trip to Iceland extra special!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

My boyfriend and I just returned from a beautiful trip to Iceland. We are very active and we like to experience the local culture when we travel so we booked a tour for each day of our trip through Eskimos. They were a pleasure to work with. They were very responsive, professional, and accommodating. The activities we selected were glacier hiking, caving, golden circle, snorkeling, and dog sledding. My favorites were definitely the glacier hiking and dog sledding. I highly recommend them. All of the tour guides were great - especially Runar and Svavar! They were extremely knowledgeable and so much fun to spend the day with. They really made our trip special. Thank you, Eskimos!

“Great Company”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Found Eskimos by chance when sorting out activities for a short break to Iceland & I am so glad that I did. Booking the trips was easy, all by email & no problems. Our guide Tristan was brilliant, answered endless questions with good humour & patience - very knowledgeable about history, geology etc. Just the 4 of us on the trip so no coach loads - excellent. Dog sledding was exciting & would like to come back to try it in the snow. Brilliant company & would not hesitate to use them again.
