I had an absolutely incredible day with Discover Iceland!!! From the first email I received back from Georg until Sven dropped me back at my hotel at the end of the day, I was extremely impressed with this company. Georg was always prompt and helpful in his emails. From Georg's communications to his selection of guides, it is clear that Discover Iceland is a top notch operation!
Due to weather issues, the original tour I wanted to go on had to be amended but that was not an issue. We walked behind waterfalls, stood on a glacier, crossed a river several times, tromped on freshly fallen snow and checked out a black sand beach. Sven was always there to lend a helping hand to someone who is more used to warm weather scuba diving holidays! I struggle with remembering all of the places we went but rest be assured, each was awe inspiring in its own way. I can't think of a better way to see Iceland than in a comfortable but rugged and powerful 4x4. I didn't stop smiling the entire day!
My guide, Sven, is a true ambassador for Iceland. He is knowledgeable, helpful, humorous and kind. I feel that my time on this tour gave me a wonderful glimpse about what makes Iceland truly extraordinary, from its otherworldly landscape to its fascinating history. Sven kept us entertained the entire time. The other people on the tour were a fun couple from England who planned on staying in Iceland another week. Sven gave them some great tips for the rest of their stay.
With tourism booming in Iceland, there are a plethora of tour operators popping up. Though I am sure other operators do a good job, I'd be shocked if any come close to Discover Iceland's level of excellence. Do yourself a favor and go with them-you'll have a blast!
I plan on returning to Iceland this summer. I can't wait to do another tour (or two!) with Discover Iceland! Thanks Georg and Sven!!! You made someone who loves sunny days and warm water enjoy a cold and wintery day-no small feat! :)
