REVIEW: “Outstanding tour of a beautiful and amazing country”

We spent 8 days in Iceland with our driver / guide Orri Amin, an experienced and delightful person who’s been with Discover Iceland for many years. Orri and “his” modified 4-wheel drive Nissan, nicknamed “Joy”, took us around Iceland in 8 days. Orri made sure we got our money’s worth — from horseback riding, to whale watching, to snowmobiling on a beautiful glacier, to visiting a farm, to eating delicious lobster and other fish — and to being driven to so many waterfalls we lost count!

REVIEW: “Creative and Fun Tour Guides”

We went for a 7 day private tour of Iceland in late December thinking that time of year would give us the best chance to see the Northern Lights and the incredible Ice Caves we’d seen in various photos. We scoured Trip Advisor for the best tour guides and landed on Discover Iceland. Obviously, you’re always at the mercy of the weather that time of year, particularly in Iceland.
