Felt taken care of the whole time

We felt taken care of the whole time we were in Iceland... from the pick up at the airport to the drop off at the airport everything went smoothly...unfortunately we were not able to see the northern lights because of bad weather but the flight home on Iceland Air they had simulated lights in the cabin...very cute addition...thanks for a great time...

Thankful for the excellent customer service

The travel agent was amazing. I booked my trip with him two days before I arrived in Iceland and it was like it had been planned way in advance. He did a great job in determining my tours and was very helpful with organizing my schedule. I had all my travel documents with custom travel booklet including my itinerary, map, and top places to visit in Iceland waiting for me at the hotel when I arrived. I absolutely loved my trip to Iceland and did not want to leave. I am so thankful for the excellent customer service Nordic Visitor provides and will definitely book with them in the future.
