“Northern lights and Golden Circle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

We went on two trips with Discover Iceland in Feb 2014, I was a little concerned when they contacted me a few days before saying they were overbooked, but we managed to rearrange. The Northern Lights tour was exceptional, I could not believe they would dance around the sky. Got some great photos. The Golden circle tour was great too, with extra stops at another waterfall and a volcanic crater. Thanks to George, Sven and Flosi.

HÆ, Thank you so much for the review. Great to have 5 stars from you :) Some times it happens we get overbooked but we have a few cars and access to more if needed so usually we are able to sort it out. Glad you did enjoy our company and hope to see you back in Iceland later on :)

HÆ, thank you so much for the review. Horry is probably Orri himself. Glad you did have amazing experience of Iceland on our tours. The SuperJeeps can bring allot of fun. And to tour out in such a small groups gives us so much better abilities to serve you better where we travel on slower phase. Hope to see you later in Iceland again : )

“Tour of a lifetime!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

We booked a tour with Discover Iceland, after a quick google search. Georg was very good at making sure everything was organised and in place ahead of our tour. We boooked a 7 seater car and went off on our adventure with our fantastic guide, Georg's father. First stop was thingvellir national park followed by Geysir and then onto Gulfoss. After all these sites (and some amazing lamb stew at Gulfoss) we headed out to the Glacier. It was an amazing and incredible experience!
Our guide/driver was fantastic and an expert driver (and told us how to handle the road conditions as we were hiring a car later in our holiday).
We reached the glacier just as the sun was starting to set, it was like being on another planet!

The service in the lead up and on the trip were fantastic and we were allowed to take our time exploring all the sites, and stopped off a few times for photo opportunities. The car was surprisingly comfortable for so many people, and the tour was definitely a highlight of the holiday.

Would highly recommend Discover Iceland, the whole team is friendly and there to make sure you enjoy your adventure discovering Iceland!

Thank you Georg and your team for the great adventure!

Hæhæ, thank you so much for the review. "Tour of a lifetime" is amazing subject and does really inspire us to do even better with our tours, glad we made it into one of your top lifetime experience, it is a privilege. Glad you did enjoy the time with my father, he has been a good father too :) The lamb stew at Gullfoss restaurant is something we can recommend as it is made by the local farmers from the area. Hope to see you back in Iceland later :)

“Northern lights experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

We went on the northern lights trip on 2nd February and were fortunate as it was the only night of our 4day visit that they were visible. Sven was our guide and we had a great trip with good sightings of the lights. It was a fantastic experience to see the lights from up a snowy mountain. My husband has some mobility problems and Sven was really helpful - including helping with setting up and taking some good photos for us.

Thank you for the great review. Great to know that you liked the tour. Lucky we got to see the lights this time. It doesn´t always happen :) but we are careful about not going out unless it is likely to show. Hope to see you back in Iceland later on :)

“Beautiful and tranquil Iceland with great guide Sven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

We went with Discover Iceland without too much research, based on the reviews here. We thought everything else would be a plus as long as we saw the northern lights. Everything turned out to be a super big plus!

Sven was our guide for the 3 day South Island and Northern Lights tour we went with and he was terrific! I was quite blown away by the beauty and almost by the wind (was super windy in some places) of all the places he took us.

An awesome trip!!

Thank you for the review. Good to know you were happy with Sven, he is one of our best ones. The South Coast tour can be done in 2-4 days all depending on budget and time but this is one of the best multi day tours we can offer where you have so much variety of Iceland in few days. Hope to see you again in Iceland later on :)
