Traveling to Iceland for the first time with a good friend we booked the Combi tour and it was a brilliant experience.
Flosi was our tour guide for the Northern Lights and he was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable. We did not have cameras or tripods with us and although the lights were not bright for us that evening, scale 2 (1-9), another guide in our group (E.Siguron) offered to take photographs for us all with his camera. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness and it made our trip. They also provided hot chocolate & biscuits as we stood outside in the cold watching the skies above.
The Golden circle tour was amazing and lasted all day with our fantastic guide Haukur Porsteinsson, 'Hawk'. He put us at ease from the start of the day and showed us round all the sights on the itinerary, giving us enough space and time to really enjoy the wonders of the landscape. The highlight of this trip was definitely driving onto the glacier and then attempting to walk on the ice!!
For both tours you are collected from your hotel/apartments and driven back again, E-mail communication was great for the Northern Lights tour, as you are informed by around 4pm that day if they are cancelling the tour due to poor weather.More
