The Best Western Reykjavik hotel staff were helpful and friendly and the hotel is in a good location. The tour of the Golden Circle was excellent, the driver went out of his way to make it more enjoyable. The Hunt for the Northern Lights excursion was excellent, fun and a real adventure. Questions were answered promptly by Jamie and I found him very helpful when I called to discuss the holiday originally.

Shane was a marvellous help with booking – especially the Greenland extension. Everything went so smoothly.

I can highly recommend both parts Iceland and Greenland.

Many thanks Shane.

We found the Family Tour itinerary very informative and it took us to places we might otherwise not have known about.  

The Narfeyrarstofa Restaurant in Skykkishólmur is excellent as is the exhibition and restaurant at the Settlement Centre in Borgarnes. The Laundromat Café/Bar and Iceland Fish and Chips in Reykjavik were also very good – take advantage of ‘happy hours’ to get good value for money, and the National Museum was very family-friendly.

We loved Iceland – and will be back! Thanks for your help.

The Hotel Borg is a very comfortable and attractive hotel. There is a good buffet breakfast with excellent coffee and is in an excellent location.
