Oli was extremely helpful in accommodating my dates, price, and needs. I thoroughly enjoyed the various sites he recommended, and the service provided by the various bus and tour companies was outstanding. Good value for my money and very memorable experiences. Climbed a glacier, snorkeled in freezing water, explored a lava cave, watched spectacular fireworks, and more....don't forget to visit the Icelandic Penis Museum :-)

While planning a trip to Reykjavik for 3 nights I came across Tour.is, and after a lot of internet research decided to book all of our trips with them. Each tour bus / jeep arrived on time and was very well organized. Oli was awesome. Always answered my questions quickly, pre and during our visit. We were staying in an apartment near the Hotel Leifur Eiriksson and so it was an easy 2 minute walk to be picked up from there for each trip.

We did:
- Northern Lights by super jeep. First night the lights didn't want to play and we were out for a good 5 hours to no avail. The drivers try as hard as possible, but if the lights are obviously fickle! No problem for Tour.is. Oli rescheduled us on another tour for the following evening. This time we were picked up by Amazing Tours and it was a huge success! Just 40 mins in and there they were! Guide was so lovely, really informative, even providing hot coffee for the bitterly cold weather. (We were just 5 people so it was very intimate.) I'm not sure who the earlier tour was with, but Amazing Tours was definitely the best.

- Golden Circle Afternoon by bus
Great, but the extreme winds and cold weather meant we had to skip the national park. Again, awesome guide who arranged a trip to a beautiful church instead. It was pretty crazy trying to battle the gale force wind to get to the Gulfoss waterfall (definitely one for those with disabilities) as the ground was like an ice rink, but it was certainly an adventure!

- Blue Lagoon
We got there just before 10am, which is when they open. Only had a few hours there due to trying to fit in other trips, but it's definitely something you have to do once. Bring your own towel and skip the higher package for the robe / towel / free drink. It just didn't seem worth it to us. Next time I'd try one of the other hot springs - something less touristy, but Blue Lagoon is something you definitely have to do. Gets a bit chaotic when checking out.

- Yoko Ono Peace Tower by boat
This was one of our surprise favorites. I don't think it's open / lit all the time, but if it is you should fit it in. Great uninhibited island just a 10 min boat ride away. Again, very icy due to the weather. Never underestimate the need for decent winter gear - walking / snow boots, layers, hat, gloves, warm coat, etc. Weather can be quite unpredictable.

Booking everything with just one company made everything easy.

We joined the 7 days self-driving tour and Tour.is had done an excellent job. Oli had patiently answered all my pre-trip questions and Ingi did great follow-through. The tour was well-organized with a easy to use package delivered upon our arrival. All the hotels were of good reputation and high quality. We enjoyed tremendously driving in the south coast - though it was winter, we enjoyed the quietness and the view. Ingi had helped us a lot during the trip - all his response very fast and clear. We had a self-inflicted small car accident and we forgot our baggage in a hotel after checking out - all were solved with Ingi's instant assistance. I am sure we can trust tour.is again for our next Icelandic trip! Thank you!

We had the best day ever on this trip! I would highly recommend it… we also had the best super jeep in iceland! We saw some fantastic scenery, Iceland was a real surprise to us. I would warn you though, you certainly do bump around in one of these.. It suited us down to the ground, we couldn't stop laughing. Our guide made sure we got the best views and took time to explain all the sights to us. A truly brilliant experience
