Jennifer, United States

Highlights of the Ring Road - Private, July 2021

10 out of 10 trip

Our family came with no expectations. We left with smiles and excitement. Everyone agreed the trip was 10/10.

Michael, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, June 2021

We had a great time

We had a great time. Good mixture of relaxation time, adventure, enjoying meeting new people and seeing new sites.

Lynn, United States

Scenic South Iceland, July 2021

Impressed by and thankful for quality service

My travel consultant, Thor, answered all my questions in a timely way and in as much detail as I needed. When he was on vacation, someone else checked his email and answered another question. Your travel material answered questions I didn't know to ask! Our guide, Snorri, was an Icelander and very knowledgeable about Iceland's history and culture. He was both personable and organized. I am more impressed, pleased, and thankful for the quality of service we received than I can adequately express. Perhaps most impressive was that Nordic Visitor arranged PCR tests for people on our tour who were unaware that this was needed to return home. Someone from the lab came to our hotel on the last day to test all those who needed it. That is true service.

Janis, United States

South & West Iceland Classic, July 2021

I will treasure the itinerary booklet provided

I felt we were able to see all the best of Iceland with the South and West Iceland Classic. It was wonderful having everything arranged for us and the itinerary book was so full of information that I will treasure it as I do my photos. Anita was wonderful to work with. She always answered all my questions promptly and relieved any anxiety I was feeling. I only wish I had gotten to meet her. But, due to covid, the office was not accessible.

Estelle, United States

Highlights of the Ring Road, July 2021

Our guide was the best

Our guide, Havar, was the best I've ever had. He was exceptional! It was hard for some of the passengers to reach you with some issues but he used his contacts and there was no problem.

Leslie, United States

Iceland Full Circle Classic, June 2021

Appreciated the detailed itinerary

We had a wonderful time and very much appreciated the detail itinerary provided. It provided helpful information for each day. The additional tours were also great additions. Our tour advisor was very responsive and helpful. We'd book through this company again.

Donald, United States

Natural Wonders of Iceland, July 2021

Wonderful tour

Wonderful tour. Our guide, Snorri, was superb. He was able to convey his intimate knowledge and enthusiasm for his country in an outstanding manner.

Janet, United States

Iceland Grand Tour, July 2021

We loved every minute of our trip

Nordic Visitor were a pleasure to work with! You were so responsive, listened to our requests, planned everything perfectly and ensured that we had a fantastic vacation. We loved every minute of our 17 day Grand Tour of Iceland - you did all of the work for us so all we had to do was enjoy it. Our tour gave us enough time to explore so many areas of your beautiful country. We want to return someday - and when we do, we will be calling Nordic Visitor again!
