“Dog sledding - very impressive!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

A few days ago we returned from Iceland. While we were there we took a day tour to the glacier and dog sledding. It was very impressive. The glacier is extremely beautiful, playing with the dogs was interesting, stuff was very kind. It is worth all the money spent.

“Service above and beyond”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Eskimos tour company provided excellent service during all phases of our trip. Gundrin and Thora started out the high level of service in the planning stage. My travel agent in Canada had only one suggestion for us and that was the standard Icelandair tours...Thora had a world of ideas. She patiently answered all our questions, suggested hotels, booked and arranged everything just as we wanted. We planned everything with Eskimos - private Reykjavik city tour, ATV adventure, Super Jeep to Landmannalauger, Golden Circle private tour. Then to kick the service up a notch higher they provided a fantastic guide. Svavar who was so knowledgable in Icelandic history, folklore, everything! One of our party is disabled and Svavar went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable by pushing his wheelchair in rocky terrain and doing everything in his power to be flexible and accommodating. We even had planned a rest day-but decided at the last minute to add another day trip and Thora arranged everything and Svavar gave us another unforgettable day viewing waterfalls, gorges and a recreation of a Viking village. Do not hesitate to book your Icelandic adventure with this quality company.

“Great way to get the most of your time”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Although you can go directly to each tour operator for an activity in Iceland, almost all bookings are done through a booking agent. We booked a bunch of tours through Eskimos and found that they dealt with really the very best operators for each activity. They were easy to work with by e-mail and phone, and really helped to make the most of our stay and arranged things on very short notice. Also, don't go just by what they have listed on their website. They can arrange most any activity you've read about and in any combination.

As with any broker, always double check your bookings to make sure the details are what you expected.

“Awesome Tour Company in Iceland!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Eskimo day tours were fantastic! I was most impressed by their professionalism and communications before our trip as well as during our stay. We had some tight scheduling restrictions for our tours, and they were super flexible in arranging for our sight seeing. We spent two days with our tour guide, Baldor, and he was great. he was very easy going and would give us details about the area that were above and beyond the guidebooks. An individual tour guide gives you latitude in spending more time in the sites that interest you most. And we didn't waste time waiting on others as you would in a group tour. We did the Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon, and dog sledding. I recommend each of these tours. We have two children, ages 16 and 12, and they enjoyed the mix of relaxing in the car during the commute and activities. We had a fabulous time and we will definitely return!

“Eskimos were amazingly accommodating!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We booked a trip to Iceland last minute. Lonely Planet listed Eskimos as the leading private tour travel agency. They took care of everything for us. It was fantastic. Airport transportation, dinner reservations, packed lunches and whatever we needed. Our guide was great. Extremely knowledgeable, very flexible and a great guy. Dogsledding, mysterious caves, private farms, hidden hot springs. We did it all. Our two preteen boys were never bored.
Everyone we worked with at Eskimos was fantastic. This review likely sounds fake because it is so gushingly positive, but we truly had an amazing experience and can't recommend Eskimos and Iceland highly enough.
