We did a self drive tour of the West and South of Iceland. Everything was perfectly planned and arranged. We had a great experience from when someone picked us up at the airport to when we left our final hotel in Reykjavik. The driving directions and itinerary were clear and easy to understand. All of the prominent landmarks were picked out for us and we felt like we didn't miss anything.

Iceland is the most amazing place you will ever experience. The people are all genuinely friendly, and everyone speaks more than enough english to get around (as an American) that you won't have any problems. My new husband and I did our honeymoon in Iceland, and we did the Full Circle self-drive tour. It was great because we could be on our own schedule as long as we had made it to our hotel each night. Tour.is did an incredible job. I had several questions before I booked the trip, and they always responded quickly and answered every painstaking question with kindness. When we got there, we did not have one problem on the entire tour. We received a packet with vouchers, and each night once we got to the hotel or guesthouse, we just handed them the one for that day and everything was all set. I loved the tour that we did, and it allowed us to see so much of the country. And the nice thing was that it was broken up in such a way that we only spent about 2 – 3.5 hours in the car each day. Breakfast was also included at every place we stayed at. Everything about Iceland is magical. It's like every national park in the States combined (minus the massive Redwood trees). But, where else can you drive over the world's largest lava field, a massive black sand desert, and then a glacier lagoon all in the same day?
We did BP07 and added 2 extra days in the capitol Reykjavik, which became our new favorite city. So many fun shops, tax free souvenirs, and amazing food. That's the other thing about Iceland. The food is PHENOMENAL. All I can really say is this: 1. Tour.is is the way to go if you want to book a tour through Iceland, hands down. 2. Iceland is the most amazing place in the world and for me amazing doesn't really cut it as far as describing that country. 3. If you go, you will love everything about it.

Iceland - beautiful.
Tour guides - friendly and knowledgeable
The amount that you see - breath taking
Exceptionally well organized
Attentive tour administration
Comfy hotels
Great food

I am definitely going to go on a longer tour and plan all of my next trips to Iceland... with them. There's nothing like a locally run tour... with a group of people who love their country. Somethings you just don't get traveling alone with a lonely planet.

We are really pleased to know that you had such a great time during the GG06 - Northern Lights Exploration tour in October. It looks like you got a good view of the Northern Lights judging from you pictures.

We certainly hope to see you in Iceland again soon.

I came across the Northern Lights Exploration from Tour.is through Google and it has been a pleasant surprise. The trip was very well organised with two great tour guides educating us along the way. We stopped by a number of majestic locations as part of the itinerary and we were incredibly fortunate during that time as the weather was fantastic, with the exception of one or two days. As a direct result of the clear skies, we witnessed the Northern Lights on about 3 occasions during the entire week. Certainly a stay that I will not forget.

We just returned home after a 14 days self drive tour around Iceland provided by TOUR.IS. The tour we did is BP03
Grand tour around Iceland including the Westfjords. We enjoyed every moment of it. We were blessed with wonderful
weather which let us see sparkling fjords, amazing panoramic views, and even a sprinkling of fresh snow on the
mountains one day to add to the magic. The accommodation was all unique and charming, and we were provided with
amazing views at each room we stayed in. It would be impossible to pick a favorite area but the Western Fjords were
particularly beautiful and isolated and peaceful. Service provided by Tour.is was excellent and everything was well
organized from start to finish. Staying in Hotel Leifur Erickson on the first and last day was an excellent decision and
the wonderful view of the city from the top of the church tower is a memory that will last a very long time.
