Customer Reviews

Iceland Tours did a wonderful job in setting up the trip for me and my daughter. You chose excellent hotels and your routing was excellent. We rented a car which I highly recommend, 4 Wheel Drive is the way to go, was very easy getting around. They call this a once in a lifetime trip but we are coming back. We toured the entire south coast from the Blue Lagoon to the Glacier Lagoon / Ice Beach, it is a long drive but definitely well worth it.
