Weather permitting, this evening could see you venture out on a Northern Lights drive to catch a glimpse of the ethereal display of motion and colour.

  3. Day 3 Reykjavik – Golden Circle Excursion – Hella (2 Nights)

    We visit the Golden Circle and Thingvellir National Park to trace the gigantic cracks in the earth's crust, formed over millennia as the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia slowly drift apart. Iceland's natural wonders continue to astound as we watch the bubbling mud pits and Strokkur geyser erupt, spouting a spectacular column of boiling water and steam 30 metres into the air. Next up are the glistening frozen waves of majestic Gullfoss, the 'Golden Waterfall', before we journey to the Fridheimar Greenhouse for a fascinating introduction into Icelandic horticulture and a taste of the juicy tomatoes grown there. This evening, dine at your hotel and, if conditions permit, join your Travel Director for a walk in search of the dazzling heavenly display.

    Embark on an epic journey through Iceland's extraordinary south coast, a land of Viking legends and mystical natural beauty.

  5. Day 5 Hella – Blue Lagoon – Keflavík

    The extraordinary geothermal feats of Iceland are explored today as we 'Dive Into Culture' and understand the way in which this island harnesses geothermal energy.

The whole trip was so disorganized. The guide knew NOTHING. There was so much to learn, but he knew nothing. The bus driver knew more.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We're terribly sorry that your trip did not meet your expectations. We know that the Travel Director can certainly make or break a trip for our guests and we do apologize that this one fell short. We will be sure to pass your feedback onto our Quality Control team and ask for immediate improvement.

The tour person was not very interesting. I think he tried to be entertaining and not informative

The tour director informed me that he lived in Iceland most of his life and you would hardly know it from the info he supplied the tour group. His first screw up was that the boat trip to the northern lights included the pick up from the hotel and return to the hotel. When we got to the dock we were told that we had to pay for pick up and return to the hotel. We went on the trip and we didn't pay for the extra transportation
Vacation
The trip was very interesting and it would have been better if our tour director was better organized. And he told me that he did 2 toures each month.

Everyone was really helpful. First, the fellow I originally booked with was wonderful. Each time I called with questions I spoke with different folks and they were all excellent. I will definitely book with GET again.

The trip was a tremendous value for the money I spent. GET also helped me get every discount possible and saved alot of money.

Yes I would book through them again. There was one mixup but other than this it was a very good trip. Hotels were nice especially in Rekjevik. We saw quite a bit each day but the Northern Lights were elusive due to the weather. Blue Lagoon was great
Vacation
Good buy with many included excursions
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your trip to Iceland and were able to see so much of the country.

The tour was wonderful. The plane connections were not. Air travel was a nightmare and exhausting--- several plane changes and having to re-enter through JFK. Probably would have to re-evaluate any trip with that stop.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We are so sorry to hear about your flight troubles.  Unfortunately, getting to Reykjavik is not an easy task from your home city. We always book the most direct flights available when you book your trip, but we are limited to the airlines schedules for some destinations.  Iceland would be one of those.  Hopefully your next trip will be more direct with less flying.
