    Our trip to Iceland was nothing short of amazing. Our travel agent was very professional, helpful, and courteous. Our bus operator in Iceland and our tour guide were excellent. Will book with Gate 1 again!!

    Good trip. Everything went smoothly. Housing generally good and consistent with tour price. Would have liked one less landscape activity and instead something like sheep farm.

    Enjoyed trip very much Iceland was very expensive but the natural beauty was amazing. The hotels were very nice and included meals better than most tours we have been on.The beds were small but that seemed to be the norm there. Probably one day less would of worked for us.
