Had the most amazing day, was so special and stopped in some real special places (off tour). Hakon was an amazing tour guide, great sense of humour, had the bus in laughter and filled us with knowledge, nothing was to much. Definitely would do his again! Such a lovely sized bus, cosy and great connection, really get to know each other. Definitely recommend booking with trips and Hakon as a tour guide!! AMAZING!

Bob and Hakon were enthusiastic and very thoughtful to their guests. Their joyous spirits were contagious while searching for the elusive Aurora. They did not give up or tire easily and we indeed found photo worthy Northern Lights. The mini bus was comfortable and more intimate than the larger excurision buses. Thank you for a wonderful beginning to our stay in Iceland!

We booked a Northern Lights tour through Viator, and unfortunately the first time (October 15, 2016) was really bad weather... no Lights. But they offered free rebooking, so the second time, despite overcast skies, we went just to the right spot and saw beautiful Northern Lights through an opening in the clouds. Our guide Thorstein was very good at finding the right spot, he communicated repeatedly with others who got him to the right spot. I think we lucked out on a very rainy trip.

We booked via our hotel to go Northern Lights Hunting with Trips as the forecast was for clear akes and hog activity. We paid for the coach rather than smaller minibus tour. The skies were clear but no lights showed up at all, however our guide took us to interesting locations including the hot geysers on the Reykjavik peninsula which were magical in bright moon light. Because we had a 'no show' we went again the following night for free. This time we were in a minibus which meant a better group atmosphere but this time unforecast cloud cover meant we again saw no lights - but did have a trip to the coast and a lovely little floodlit church. The following night the tour was cancelled as cloud was forecast but Trips booked us in for the 4th night, again in a minibus and after a relatively short time we had a fantastic show of the lights. All well wort the effort and Trips did everything to make us feel welcome to keep coming, made the evenings entertaining and positive. Thanks to our guides: day 1 a name that sounded like 'Artiste' and Days 2 and 4 'Fun'/'Shorty'

We meet as a family so there were 8 of us. We booked the trip the first day. The trip unfortunaly was canceled every night we tried. The staff was excellent in keeping us informed of the status and we knew by 430pm every day. Can’t say how great that was. In the end, we didn’t end up going :-( but they refunded the money. Great service!
