Did not get taken out to look for northern lights as tour guide felt the chances of seeing them was low and would require a longer drive, disappointing. Given insufficient time at tetonic plates to be able to walk and view the site, rushed! Overall tour site selections were good, guide was adequate. Iceland a beautiful country and would recommend to others.

The trip was fantastic and the itinerary was excellent. Tour guide was very good , informative and passionate about her country Iceland.

Weather conditions changed some of the itinerary, but efforts were made to go back or substitute alternatives.
