“Absolutely Incredible”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

It was by far the best tour we did there. Our guide, Kiddi, was amazing. He was very passionate about his job and his country, which made the experience even more enjoyable. He always wanted to make sure we were having as much fun as possible. Exploring Iceland in a SuperJeep is far better than on a bus full of people. Off-roading in that beautiful scenery and getting up close to volcanoes, glaciers and waterfalls, which such fun guides is a must have experience.

“Had an amazing time!!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I just want to thank our tour guide george on the 4x4 offroad superjeep tour. We had booked another tour for that day and he decided not to turn up on the day and we were lucky enough that george was free to take us. We had our best day on this tour while we were in iceland. George treated us so well and took us to some of the best sights i have ever seen in my lifetime. He was such a lovely guy and made our day so enjoyable. So i just want to say a big thankyou to him for making our day and to tell people to do this tour especially with the tour guy george. you will not be disappointed at all : )

“Glorious Northern Lights”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The initial thing that convinced me to pick Discover Iceland over other tours was the individual (i.e. non-caravanning) jeep arrangement. Then Georg was extremely flexible and helpful about scheduling our tour - since the Northern LIghts are so notoriously fickle, I was a bit nervous about committing and getting stuck. Georg told us to just let him know when we wanted to go, and he'd let us know when it looked good. Which he did! He kept an eye on conditions and regularly updated us - we ended up getting out on an extraordinary night. Our driver Kiddi obviously loves his work. After leaving the jeep caravans in the dust, he whisked us to his favorite local spot, and when pressed for explanation of how he arranged such a great night, he only alluded to special 'connections'! He was knowledgable about Iceland past and present, and a delightful host. The driver-in-training, Silla, was also very enthusiastic and helpful. Most highly recommended - we'd do it again in a heartbeat!

“Best day of entire trip!”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We booked the "THORSMORK & EYJAFJALLAJOKULL VOLCANO" trip on our last day in Iceland. We had used other tours as well during this trip, but Discover Iceland surpassed all other tours. Our guide, Kiddi, was outstanding. He went out of his way to make sure we have a good time and saw as much as possible. It was such a great day because he clearly loves his job and his country and wanted to share it was everyone. The SuperJeep we used was so much fun to experience in Thorsmork offroad terrain and driving in river beds was outstanding for photo opts! This wasn't so much a tour given by an impersonal guide, but like visiting a friend and he was showing you around his town. The tour also included a wonderful traditional lunch (smoke lamb, salmon and roast lamb with potatoes and chocolates).
What really impressed me was that I had forgotten trinkets I had collected on the tour and Kiddi came back to my hotel the next day (on his day off from work) to drop them off for me! Outstanding service! Definitely a must for a trip to Iceland.

“A Fantastic Day of Touring, Learning and Fun”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

3 of us were in Iceland as a trip to see northern lights for my mum's 70th birthday. We decided to liven it up with a superjeep tour of the Golden Circle. We had several stop offs around the circle, and being in a Superjeep our guide Johann took us as far up into the glacier as he could before the ice closed in too blue - a truly amazing experience you'd never get on a normal tour bus.

Johann is a highly skilled superjeep driver, and incredibly knowledgeable on all things Iceland as we found out with his facts, stories and fun snippets as we went through the day. He was also happy to stop whenever even if it wasn't on his main plan. He couldn't have tried harder to make sure we were well informed, had all our (many!) questions answered and most of all kept it exciting through the ten hour day.

We were in the big blue Nissan private plated with "FUN" and it definitely was. There were 5 of us in the jeep, with one on the back row - note there is NOT much room on that back room but with only five of us we could all spread out fine!

Also note that "older tourers" should be ok on this tour, but do let Georg and the guys know in advance when you book if you had requirements - we were lucky Johann had a crate in the boot else mum would've been in trouble! We were a bit short sighted in warning them!

A fabulous day, and if I return to Iceland I would use these guys again.
